Composition, Information on Ingredients
Symbols: O C
Risk Phrases: 34 8
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: clear, colorless. Danger! Strong oxidizer.
Contact with other material may cause a fire. Eye contact may result in
permanent eye damage. May cause central nervous system effects. Causes eye and
skin irritation and possible burns. Corrosive. May cause severe respiratory
tract irritation with possible burns. May cause severe digestive tract
irritation with possible burns. Mutagen. Light sensitive. May be harmful if
swallowed. May cause blood abnormalities.
Blood, central nervous system.
Eye: Contact with liquid is corrosive
to the eyes and causes severe burns. Contact with the eyes may cause corneal
Skin: Causes severe skin irritation and possible
burns. May cause discoloration, erythema (redness), swelling, and the formation
of papules and vesicles (blisters).
gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Causes
gastrointestinal tract burns. May cause vascular collapse and damage. May cause
damage to the red blood cells. May cause difficulty in swallowing, stomach
distension, possible cerebral swelling and death. Ingestion may result in
irritation of the esophagus, bleeding of the stomach and ulcer formation.
Inhalation: Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract.
May cause ulceration of nasal tissue, insomnia, nervous tremors with numb
extremities, chemical pneumonia, unconsciousness, and death. At high
concentrations, respiratory effects may include acute lung damage and delayed
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin
contact may cause dermatitis. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic
effects. Repeated contact may cause corneal damage.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT allow
victim to rub or keep eyes closed. Extensive irrigation with water is required
(at least 30 minutes).
Skin: Get medical aid immediately.
Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes
while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Destroy contaminated shoes.
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
immediately. Wash mouth out with water. Vomiting may occur spontaneously. If
vomiting occurs and the victim is conscious, give water to further dilute the
Inhalation: Get medical aid immediately. Remove
from exposure to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If breathing has ceased apply
artificial respiration using oxygen and a suitable mechanical device such as a
bag and a mask.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically
and supportively. Attempts at evacuating the stomach via emesis induction or
gastric lavage should be avoided. In the event of severe distension of the
stomach or esophagus due to gas formation, insertion of a gastric tube may be
required. To treat corneal damage, careful ophthalmologic evaluation is
recommended and the possibility of local corticosteroid therapy should be
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Dike and collect water used
to fight fire. Strong oxidizer. Contact with combustible materials may cause a
fire. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by
thermal decomposition or combustion. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed
containers cool. Substance is noncombustible. Use water with caution and in
flooding amounts. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the
ground and collect in low or confined areas. Some oxidizers may react
explosively with hydrocarbons(fuel). May decompose explosively when heated or
involved in a fire. May accelerate burning if involved in a fire.
Extinguishing Media: Use water only! Do NOT use carbon
dioxide. Do NOT use dry chemical. Do NOT get water inside containers. Contact
professional fire-fighters immediately. Cool containers with flooding quantities
of water until well after fire is out. For large fires, flood fire area with
large quantities of water, while knocking down vapors with water fog.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Avoid runoff into storm sewers and
ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Use water spray to disperse the
gas/vapor. Remove all sources of ignition. Absorb spill using an absorbent,
non-combustible material such as earth, sand, or vermiculite. Do not use
combustible materials such as saw dust. Flush spill area with water. Provide
ventilation. Do not get water inside containers. Keep combustibles (wood, paper,
oil, etc.,) away from spilled material.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove
contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well-ventilated area.
Contents may develop pressure upon prolonged storage. Do not get in eyes, on
skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid contact with clothing
and other combustible materials. Do not ingest or inhale. Store protected from
light. Discard contaminated shoes. Unused chemicals should not be returned to
the container. Rinse empty drums and containers thoroughly with water before
Storage: Keep away from heat, sparks, and
flame. Do not store near combustible materials. Keep container closed when not
in use. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible
substances. Store protected from light. Keep away form alkalies, oxidizable
materials, finely divided metals, alcohols, and permanganates. Store below 35°C.
Store only in light-resistent containers fitted with a safety vent.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment. Facilities storing
or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a
safety shower. Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep
airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
