Section 3: Hazards Identification

Potential Acute Health Effects:

Hazardous in case of ingestion, of inhalation. Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant, sensitizer), of

eye contact (irritant). Severe over-exposure can result in death.

Potential Chronic Health Effects:

CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Classified A2 (Suspected for human.) by ACGIH, 2 (Reasonably anticipated.) by





The substance is toxic to kidneys, lungs, liver.

Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure to an

highly toxic material may produce general deterioration of health by an accumulation in one or many human


p. 1

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: No known effect on eye contact, rinse with water for a few minutes.

Skin Contact:

After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin

with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin.

Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated

clothing before reusing.

Serious Skin Contact: Not available.

Inhalation: Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention.

Serious Inhalation:

Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or

waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth

resuscitation. WARNING: It may be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation

when the inhaled material is toxic, infectious or corrosive. Seek immediate medical attention.


Do not induce vomiting. Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible

indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen

tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth

resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention.

Serious Ingestion: Not available.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

p. 2

Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container.

Large Spill:

Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Be careful that the product is not

present at a concentration level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.

Section 7: Handling and Storage


Keep locked up Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk,

evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not

breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory

equipment If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Keep away from

incompatibles such as oxidizing agents.


Keep container dry. Keep in a cool place. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep container tightly

closed. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials should be stored in a separate

locked safety storage cabinet or room.

Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:

Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below

recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to

airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

Personal Protection: Safety glasses. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent.


Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:

Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used

to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist

BEFORE handling this product.
