ROUTES OF EXPOSURE

Eye Contact

Skin Contact

Ingestion

Inhalation

Skin Absorption

 

EXPOSURE STANDARDS

No standards established for the product. Maintain air contaminant

concentrations in the workplace at the lowest feasible levels.

 

HEALTH HAZARDS

Moderate skin irritant.

May cause eye irritation.

Respiratory Irritant.

May cause skin sensitization.

 

TARGET ORGANS

Eye

Skin

Respiratory system

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Acute effects)

Product vapor in low concentrations can cause lacrimation,

conjunctivitis and corneal edema when absorbed into the tissue of

the eye from the atmosphere. Corneal edema may give rise to a

perception of ''blue haze'' or ''fog'' around lights. The effect

is transient and has no known residual effect. Contact with skin

causes irritation, redness and discomfort which is transient.

Inhalation of mists may cause irritation in the respiratory tract.

Inhalation of vapors may cause irritation in the respiratory

tract. Coughing and chest pain may result. Contact with eyes may

cause irritation.

Product is absorbed through the skin and may cause nausea,

headache and general discomfort.

 

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE (Possible Longer Term Effects)

Repeated and/or prolonged exposure may cause allergic

reaction/sensitization.

Repeated and/or prolonged exposures may result in: adverse

respiratory effects (such as cough, tightness of chest or

shortness of breath), adverse eye effects (such as conjunctivitis

or corneal damage), adverse skin effects (such as rash, irritation

or corrosion).

Effects from inhalation of vapors may be delayed. Repeated and/or

prolonged exposure to low concentrations of vapor may cause: sore

throat, eye irritation which are transient.

 

MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE

Asthma

Chronic respiratory disease (e.g. Bronchitis, Emphysema)

Eye disease

Skin disorders and Allergies

 

CARCINOGENS UNDER OSHA, ACGIH, NTP, IARC, OTHER

This product contains no carcinogens in concentrations of 0.1

percent or greater.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 4 - FIRST AID

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EYE CONTACT

Hold eyelids apart and immediately flush eyes with plenty of water

for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical advice.

 

SKIN CONTACT

Remove product and immediately flush affected area with water for

at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek

medical advice.

 

INHALATION

Move patient to fresh air. If breathing has stopped or is labored

give assisted respiration (e.g. mouth-to-mouth). Supplemental

oxygen may be indicated. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn

victim's head to the side. Seek medical advice.

 

INGESTION

If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Remove stomach

contents by gastric suction or induce vomiting only as directed by

medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

person.

FIRE HAZARD CLASSIFICATION (OSHA/NFPA)

Class IIIB

 

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Ignition will give rise to a Class B fire. In case of large fire

use: water spray, alcohol foam. In case of small fire use: carbon

dioxide (CO2), dry chemical, dry sand or limestone.

 

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES

Firefighters should wear butyl rubber boots, gloves, and body suit

and a self-contained breathing apparatus.

 

UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS

May generate toxic or irritating combustion products.

Sudden reaction and fire may result if product is mixed with an

oxidizing agent.

May generate carbon monoxide gas.

May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. May generate ammonia gas.

Personnel in vicinity and downwind should be evacuated.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

CONTAINMENT TECHNIQUES (Removal of ignition sources, diking etc)

Stop the leak, if possible. Ventilate the space involved. Reduce

vapor spreading with a water spray. Shut off or remove all

ignition sources. Construct a dike to prevent spreading (includes

molten liquids until they freeze).

 

CLEAN-UP PROCEDURES

If recovery is not feasible, admix with dry soil, sand or non-

reactive absorbent and place in an appropriate chemical waste

container. Transfer to containers by suction, preparatory for

later disposal. Place in metal containers for recovery or

disposal. Flush area with water spray. Clean-up personnel must be

equipped with self contained breathing apparatus and butyl rubber

protective clothing. For large spills, recover spilled material

with a vacuum truck.

 

OTHER EMERGENCY ADVICE

Open enclosed spaces to outside atmosphere. Wear protective

clothing, boots, gloves, and eye protection. At elevated

temperatures a cartridge mask National Institute for Occupational

Safety and Health (NIOSH) approved for ammonia may be appropriate.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

STORAGE

Keep away from: acids, oxidizers. Keep in cool, dry, ventilated

storage and in closed containers. Do not store in reactive metal

containers. Product may partially freeze with extended exposure to

cold temperatures, resulting in crystallization, haziness or

separation. If this occurs, product should be warmed to 100-140F

(38-60C) for one hour and stirred until clear.

 

HANDLING

Avoid contact with skin or eyes. When handling, do not eat, drink,

or smoke.

 

OTHER PRECAUTIONS

Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily

accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by

government regulations (e.g. OSHA). Do not use sodium nitrite or

other nitrosating agents in formulations containing this product.

Cancer-causing nitrosamines could be formed.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 8 - PERSONAL PROTECTION / EXPOSURE CONTROLS

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

EYE PROTECTION

Chemical safety glasses.

 

HAND PROTECTION

Neoprene rubber gloves. Impermeable gloves. Cuffed butyl rubber

gloves. Nitrile rubber gloves. Polyvinyl chloride gloves.

 

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

Not required under normal conditions in a well-ventilated

workplace. An organic vapor respirator National Institute for

Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) approved for organic vapors

is recommended under emergency conditions. At elevated

temperatures a cartridge mask National Institute for Occupational

Safety and Health (NIOSH) approved for ammonia may be appropriate.

 

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Long sleeved clothing.

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

No specific controls needed.

 

WORK AND HYGIENIC PRACTICES

Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.

Wash at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or

using the toilet.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID (if unstable)

Not applicable

 

INCOMPATIBILITY (Materials to Avoid)

Mineral acids (i.e. sulfuric, phosphoric, etc.). Organic acids

(i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.). Oxidizing Agents (i.e.

perchlorates, nitrates etc.). Sodium or Calcium Hypochlorite.

CAUTION! N-Nitrosamines, many of which are known to be potent

carcinogens, may be formed when the product comes in contact with

nitrous acid, nitrites or atmospheres with high nitrous oxide

concentrations. Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and

galvanized surfaces. Reaction with peroxides may result in violent

decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an explosion.

Nitrites, nitrosating agents. A reaction accompanied by large heat

release occurs when the product is mixed with acids. Heat

generated may be sufficient to cause vigorous boiling creating a

hazard due to splashing or splattering of hot material.

with other materials).

Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive

nitric acid (TLV=2 ppm). Carbon Monoxide in a fire. Carbon Dioxide
