Composition, Information on Ingredients
Risk Phrases: 22 36
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: colorless or white. Caution! May cause
respiratory and digestive tract irritation. May be harmful if swallowed. Causes
eye irritation. May cause skin irritation.
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion: May cause irritation of the digestive tract. May
cause systemic toxicity with acidosis. May be harmful if swallowed.
Inhalation: If heated, dust or fume may cause respiratory
Chronic: Prolonged or repeated skin
contact may cause dermatitis.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least
15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid
Skin: Flush skin with plenty of soap and water
for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get
medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: 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.
from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial
respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
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. 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. Containers may explode in the heat
of a fire. May polymerize explosively when involved in a fire.
Extinguishing Media: For small fires, use dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Substance is
noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. For
large fires, use water spray, fog or alcohol-resistant foam. Cool containers
with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
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
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with
adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Do not get in
eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion
Storage: Store in a cool, dry,
well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Store below 40°C.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep
airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.

OSHA Vacated PELs: Ammonium
chloride: 10 mg/m3 TWA; 20 mg/m3 STEL
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective
eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face
protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Skin: Wear impervious gloves.
Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent
Respirators: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations
found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or
European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
