Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: white. Danger! Strong oxidizer. Contact with
other material may cause a fire. May cause eye and skin irritation. May cause
digestive tract irritation with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. May cause blood
abnormalities. May cause kidney damage. May cause central nervous system
effects. May cause cancer based on animal studies. May cause reproductive and
Target Organs: Blood, kidneys, central
nervous system, respiratory system, gastrointestinal system, blood forming
organs, nervous system, reproductive system.
Eye: May cause eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation.
Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritation with
nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause effects similar to those for inhalation
Inhalation: May cause methemoglobinemia,
cyanosis, convulsions, tachycardia, dyspnea (labored breathing), and death. May
cause adverse central nervous system effects including headache, convulsions,
and possible death. May cause kidney damage. May cause anemia.
Chronic: Chronic inhalation and ingestion may cause effects
similar to those of acute inhalation and ingestion. Prolonged or repeated
exposure may cause adverse reproductive effects. May cause liver and kidney
damage. Prolonged exposure may cause anemia and methemoglobinemia, characterized
by dizziness, drowsiness, headache, breath shortness, cyanosis (bluish skin due
to deficient oxygenation of the blood), rapid heart rate and chocolate-brown
colored blood. Chronic exposure to lead may result in plumbism which is
characterized by lead line in gum, headache, muscle weakness, mental changes.
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: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty
of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing
and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: 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.
Inhalation: Remove 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.
Antidote: The use of
Calcium disodium EDTA as a chelating agent should be determined by qualified
medical personnel. The use of d-Penicillamine as a chelating agent should be
determined by qualified medical personnel. The use of Dimercaprol or BAL
(British Anti-Lewisite) as a chelating agent should be determined by qualified
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. Combustion generates toxic fumes. Oxidizer. Greatly increases the burning
rate of combustible materials.
Extinguishing Media: Use
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. Remove
contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well-ventilated area.
Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and
clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Keep
away from clothing and other combustible materials.
Storage: Do not store near combustible materials. Store in
a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
OSHA Vacated PELs: Lead
Nitrate: 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: 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.
