EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Hoarseness.
    Local exhaust or breathing protection. Closed system and ventilation.
    Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • Redness. Ulceration.
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Sore throat (further see Inhalation).
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into containers. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment (extra personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus).

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    YELLOW POWDER.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes. Reacts violently with hydrazine. Incompatible with combustible, organic or other readily oxidizable materials such as paper, wood, sulfur, aluminium, plastics.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; 0.0005 mg/m3 Intended change A2: as Cr (ACGIH 1991-1992).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by inhalation of its aerosol.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes, the skin, and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the kidneys and possibly liver , resulting in liver and kidney injury.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis or ulcers. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Lungs may be affected by repeated or prolonged exposure, and with some chromate exposures, nasal septim perforation has occurred. The substance may have effects on blood, liver and kidney and brain , resulting in changes in white and red blood cells, liver and kidney injury and neurovegetative diorders. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Relative density (water = 1): 3.89
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 15C: 0.12
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.
    NOTES
    Temperature of decomposition unknown in literature. Do NOT take working clothes home. A2 in OELs means Suspected Human Carcinogen.
