Additional advice : Oxidizer Test Results: This product was not classified as an oxidizer when tested by the UN Oxidizer
Test.
Nitrogen trichloride can be generated slowly by the reaction of small quantities of water with a high concentration of this
product. Nitrogen trichloride can present an explosion hazard. Immediately after a fire has been extinguished, check for
wet or damp material. Any spilled material from burned or broken containers should be assumed contaminated.
Neutralize to a non-oxidizing material for safe disposal. Do not attempt to re-close broken containers, even for movement
to the disposal area. They should be left open to disperse any nitrogen trichloride that may form. Material which appears
undamaged except for being damp on the outside, should be opened and inspected immediately. If the plastic liner
(where applicable) of the container is damaged or the material is damp, the material should be chemically treated if
allowable, to a non-oxidizing material for safe disposal. Bulging containers require extreme care. Contact the fire
department.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Environmental precautions
:
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for containment /
Methods for cleaning up
:
Clean-up methods - large spillage
Using appropriate protective clothing and safety equipment, contain spilled
material.
Do not add water to spilled material.
Using clean dedicated equipment, sweep and scoop all spilled material,
contaminated soil, and other contaminated material and place into clean dry
containers for disposal.
Do not close containers containing wet or damp material. They should be left
open to disperse any hazardous gases that may form.
Clean-up methods - small spillage
In case of spills, scoop up and place product in pool or spa water, then flood
spilled area with large volumes of water.
Additional advice
:
Do not use floor sweeping compounds to clean up spills.
Do not transport wet or damp material.
Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".
Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal or cleaning of
equipment.
