EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
  • INHALATION
  • Dullness. Headache.
    Closed system and ventilation.
    Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness.
    Safety goggles, 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.
    Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus).
    Separated from strong oxidants. Well closed.
    Unbreakable packaging; put breakable packaging into closed unbreakable container.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. TURNS PURPLE ON EXPOSURE TO AIR.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    On combustion, forms toxic gases. The solution in water is a weak base. Reacts with strong oxidants.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; mg/m3 A1 (skin) (ACGIH 1996).
    MAK: class III A1 (1995).


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

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes. The substance may cause effects on the bladder , resulting in blood in urine.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    This substance is carcinogenic to humans.
