Composition, Information on Ingredients
Risk Phrases: 34 20
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: colorless to slight yellow. Danger! Corrosive.
Causes eye and skin burns. May cause severe respiratory tract irritation with
possible burns. May cause severe digestive tract irritation with possible burns.
Target Organs: Respiratory system, eyes, skin, circulatory
system, mucous membranes.
Eye: May cause irreversible eye
injury. Vapor or mist may cause irritation and severe burns. Contact with liquid
is corrosive to the eyes and causes severe burns. May cause painful
sensitization to light.
Skin: Contact with liquid is
corrosive and causes severe burns and ulceration.
Ingestion: May cause circulatory system failure. Causes
severe digestive tract burns with abdominal pain, vomiting, and possible death.
May cause corrosion and permanent tissue destruction of the esophagus and
Inhalation: May cause severe irritation of
the respiratory tract with sore throat, coughing, shortness of breath and
delayed lung edema. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract. Exposure to
the mist and vapor may erode exposed teeth. Causes corrosive action on the
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin
contact may cause dermatitis. Repeated exposure may cause erosion of teeth. May
cause fetal effects. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects.
Prolonged exposure may cause conjunctivitis, photosensitization, and possible
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). SPEEDY ACTION IS CRITICAL!
case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15
minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid
immediately. Wash clothing before reuse.
swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Get medical aid immediately. If victim is
fully conscious, give a cupful of water. Never give anything by mouth to an
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh
air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult,
give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Do NOT
use sodium bicarbonate in an attempt to neutralize the acid.
Antidote: Do NOT use oils or ointments in eye.
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. Not flammable, but reacts with most metals to form flammable
hydrogen gas. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Vapors may
be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or
confined areas. Reaction with water may generate much heat which will increase
the concentration of fumes in the air. Containers may explode when heated.
Approach fire from upwind to avoid hazardous vapors and toxic decomposition
Extinguishing Media: For large fires, use water
spray, fog, or alcohol-resistant foam. Substance is nonflammable; use agent most
appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. Do NOT get water inside containers.
Do NOT use straight streams of water. Most foams will react with the material
and release corrosive/toxic gases. Cool containers with flooding quantities of
water until well after fire is out. For small fires, use carbon dioxide (except
for cyanides), dry chemical, dry sand, and alcohol-resistant foam.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Large spills may be neutralized
with dilute alkaline solutions of soda ash, or lime. Avoid runoff into storm
sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately,
observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Remove all sources of
ignition. Provide ventilation. Do not get water inside containers. A vapor
suppressing foam may be used to reduce vapors. Cover with dry earth, dry sand,
or other non-combustible material followed with plastic sheet to minimize
spreading and contact with water.
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 breathe dust,
vapor, mist, or gas. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container
tightly closed. Do not ingest or inhale. Discard contaminated shoes. Use caution
when opening. Keep from contact with moist air and steam.
Storage: Do not store in direct sunlight. Keep container
closed when not in use. Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool,
dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Corrosives area. Do
not store in metal containers. Do not store near flammable or oxidizing
substances (especially nitric acid or chlorates). Store away from alkalies.

Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: 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
