Section 2 -
Composition, Information on Ingredients
Symbols: None listed.
Risk Phrases: None listed.
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: white. Caution! Moisture sensitive. This is
expected to be a low hazard for usual industrial handling. May cause eye and
skin irritation. May cause respiratory and digestive tract irritation. May cause
fetal effects based upon animal studies.
Target Organs: No
Eye: May cause eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion: Ingestion of large amounts may cause
gastrointestinal irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Low
hazard for usual industrial handling.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least
15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation
develops, 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
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth
and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid if irritation or
Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh
air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is
difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
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. This material in sufficient quantity and
reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is nonflammable; use agent
most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. Do NOT get water inside
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. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and
ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Provide ventilation. Do not get water inside containers.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands
before eating. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Minimize dust
generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid
ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not allow contact
with water. Keep from contact with moist air and steam.
Storage: Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store
in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Do not
store in aluminum containers. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
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.
OSHA Vacated PELs: Sodium
sulfate: No OSHA Vacated PELs are listed for this chemical.
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 appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin
Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to
prevent skin exposure.
Respirators: A respiratory protection program
that meets OSHA's 29 CFR §1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European
Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a

This chemical is not expected to cause oxygen depletion in aquatic systems. It
has a low potential to affect aquatic organisms and is expected to have a low
potential to affect secondary waste treatment microorganisms.
Environmental: Sodium sulfate may persist indefinitely in the
environment, but is not likely to show bioaccumulation or food chain
contamination effects. If diluted with water, this chemical released directly or
indirectly into the environment is not expected to have a significant impact.
Physical: No information available.
Other: This chemical
is not likely to bioconcentrate.
