EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION
  • Cough. Sneezing.
    Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES
  • Mildly irritant.
    Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    WHITE POWDER OR GRANULES.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


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

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin.

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: see Notes°C
    Solubility in water: poor
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms.
    N O T E S
    Temperature of decomposition unknown in literature. MBBH 766, Tinopal, Mikephor, Blankophor and C.I. Fluorescent Brightener 260 are trade names.
