FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible under specific conditions. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion on contact with strong oxidizers.


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
  • INHALATION
  • Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Symptoms may be delayed (see Notes).
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • MAY BE ABSORBED!
    Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES

  • Safety goggles, or face shield.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Abdominal pain. Vomiting.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
    Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: P3 filter respirator for toxic particles).
    Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, silver nitrate, food and feedstuffs.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    WHITE ODOURLESS CRYSTALLINE POWDER; BITTER TASTE.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. Reacts with strong oxidants causing fire and explosion hazard.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV (as TWA): ppm; 0.3 mg/m3 (ACGIH 1991-1992).


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

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    Inhalation of aerosol may cause lung oedema (see Notes). The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 198C
    Relative density (water = 1): >1
    Solubility in water: none
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.66 (calculated)
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    N O T E S
    The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential. Commonly present impurities can change the toxicological properties of this substance; consult an expert. Do NOT take working clothes home. Anturate, Bantu, Krysid and Rattrack are trade names.
