Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: white solid. May be harmful if swallowed. May cause severe respiratory and digestive tract irritation with possible burns. May cause severe eye and skin irritation with possible burns. May cause cardiac disturbances. Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air). Warning!
Target Organs: Heart.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: Contact with eyes may cause severe irritation, and possible eye burns.
Skin: Contact with skin causes irritation and possible burns, especially if the skin is wet or moist.
Ingestion: May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea, vomiting and possible burns. May cause cardiac disturbances. May be harmful if swallowed. In very severe cases, seizures, rapid respiration, slow heartbeat, or death, may result.
Inhalation: May cause severe irritation of the upper respiratory tract with pain, burns, and inflammation.
Chronic: Effects may be delayed.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General Information: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) to prevent contact with thermal decomposition products.
Extinguishing Media: Use extinguishing media most appropriate for the surrounding fire.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures


General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage


Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Keep container tightly closed. Do not get on skin or in eyes. Do not ingest or inhale. Wash clothing before reuse. Always use cool water when dissolving Calcium Chloride. Heat evolved is significant.
Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Store protected from moisture. Store below melting point.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection


Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
