Section 2 -
Composition, Information on Ingredients
Symbols: None listed.
Risk Phrases: None listed.
Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: white. Caution! May cause respiratory and
digestive tract irritation. Prolonged exposure may cause pulmonary edema. This
substance has caused adverse reproductive and fetal effects in animals. Air
sensitive. Moisture sensitive. Light sensitive. Causes eye and skin irritation.
Target Organs: Blood, thyroid.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation. May cause sensitization by
Ingestion: Causes gastrointestinal irritation
with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Chronic ingestion of iodides during
pregnancy has resulted in fetal death, severe goiter, and cretinoid appearance
of the newborn.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract
irritation. May cause respiratory sensitization.
Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause adverse reproductive effects. Chronic
exposure can lead to iodism characterized by salivation, nasal discharge,
sneezing, conjunctivitis, fever, laryngitis, bronchitis, stomatitis, and skin
rashes. Adverse reproductive effects have been reported in animals.
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: 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.
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. Use extinguishing media appropriate to the
surrounding fire. Substance is noncombustible.
Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to
extinguish surrounding fire. Do NOT get water inside containers.
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. Place under an inert atmosphere. Do not get
water inside containers.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with
adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid
ingestion and inhalation. Store protected from light. Handle under an inert
atmosphere. Store protected from air. Do not allow contact with water. Keep from
contact with moist air and steam.
Storage: Store in a cool
place in the original container and protect from sunlight. Do not store in
direct sunlight. Store in a tightly closed container. Do not expose to air.
Store protected from moisture. Store protected from light. Store under an inert
