EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sore throat.
    Ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rest.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. (extra personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles).
    Separated from acids. Dry. Keep in the dark.
    Airtight.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    YELLOW CRYSTALS. TURNS DEEP GREEN ON EXPOSURE TO LIGHT.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating and on burning producing toxic and irritating fumes including nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides).

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; 5 mg/m3 (as TWA) (skin) (ACGIH 1991-1992).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin, by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed, especially, if powdered.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes, the skin, the respiratory tract.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization as well as photosensitization.
