Flammable Limits: Lower: NoneUpper: None

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: No special firefighting procedures needed. Use normal procedures which include wearing
NIOSH/MSHA approved self-contained breathing apparatus, flame and chemical resistant clothing; hats, boots and gloves. If without
risk, remove material from fire area. Cool container with water from maximum distance.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: A strong oxidizing agents, acts as a nitrogen carrier. Can be a fire hazard by spontaneous
chemical reaction. Violent reaction with carbon and phosphorous. Contaminated water or mineral runoff may pollute water supply.


V HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Threshold Limit Value: 0.1 mg/m3

Effects of Overexposure: Toxic via ingestion, affects CNS. Symptoms include inflammation of mucous membranes inside mouth
and tremors. Vapor, mist or dust is toxic. Contact with mineral can cause severe burns to eyes and skin.

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES: Remove from exposure.

EYES: Flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes.
SKIN: Remove any contaminated clothing. Flood skin with large volumes of water for 15 minutes.
INGESTION/INHALATION: Seek prompt, competent medical attention.

Stability: Stable
Conditions to Avoid: Heating to decomposition. Sensitive to light.
Incompatibility: Carbon, phosphorous, reducing materials, combustible.

Hazardous Decomposition Products: Toxic fumes of mercury.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Conditions to Avoid: Not applicable


VII SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled: Wearing full protective clothing and respiratory protection, eliminate
all sources and carefully transfer to a well-marked container. Close container tightly. Submit or retain for disposal.

Waste Disposal Method: Dispose of in accordance with applicable Federal, State and Local Regulations.


VIII SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

ing apparatus for emergency use.

Ventilation: Local Exhaust: Fume hood Mechanical: Not adequate
Special: Glove box or bag Other: Not required

Protective Gloves: Rubber
Eye Protection: Chemical safety goggles and full face shield.
Other Protective Equipment: Lab coat and apron, flame and chemical resistant coveralls, eyewash capable of sustained flushing,
safety drench shower and hygienic facilities for washing.


IX SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Other Precautions: Keep container tightly closed. Store in a cool dry well ventilated area. Wash throughly after use.

Precautionary Labeling: DANGER, Toxic, Do Not Inhale or Ingest Avoid Contact with Skin, Eyes, and Clothing. Warning
Oxidizer Can Be Fire Hazard by Spontaneous Chemical Reaction. Heating to Decomposition Emits Toxic Fumes.
