EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN


  • Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Vomiting.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting, then remove to safe place.
    Separated from strong oxidants.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes at 210C and on burning producing toxic and corrosive gases including nitrogen oxides. Reacts with strong oxidants, strong acids and alkaliesoxidants. Reacts strong oxidants, strong acids and alkalies.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion.

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

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:


    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 135C
