Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: clear, colorless. Caution! May cause irritation. This is expected to be a low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Target Organs: None.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation.
Skin: May cause mild skin irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Ingestion: Low hazard for usual industrial handling. May cause gastric disturbances and electrolytic imbalance.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling.
Chronic: None

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


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: Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Flush skin with plenty of soap and water.
Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water. Get medical aid if irritation or symptoms occur.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Antidote: None reported.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General 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.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or regular foam.

Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures


General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Provide ventilation.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage


Handling: Wash hands before eating. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. No special precautions indicated.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection


Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
