Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: white solid.
Warning! May cause allergic respiratory reaction. May cause allergic skin reaction. May cause eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation. The toxicological properties of this material have not been fully investigated.
Target Organs: None.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause severe eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material.
Ingestion: May cause irritation of the digestive tract. The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated. May cause allergic reactions
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. May cause methemoglobinemia, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of skin due to deficient oxygenation of the blood), convulsions, tachycardia, dyspnea (labored breathing), and death. The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated.
Chronic: Not available.

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid imme diately.
Skin: Get medical aid. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: No specific antidote exists. Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures
