Section 3: Hazards Identification
Potential Acute Health Effects:
Very hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant). Hazardous in case of ingestion, of
inhalation. Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (sensitizer). Prolonged exposure may result in skin burns
and ulcerations. Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Inflammation of the eye is
characterized by redness, watering, and itching. Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening,
or, occasionally, blistering.
Potential Chronic Health Effects:
Repeated or prolonged exposure is not known to aggravate medical condition.

Section 4: First Aid Measures
Eye Contact:
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes,
keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention.
Skin Contact:
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin
with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin.
Cold water may be used. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
Serious Skin Contact:
Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek medical
Inhalation: Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention.
Serious Inhalation:
Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Seek medical attention.
Do not induce vomiting. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not
breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention.
Serious Ingestion: Not available.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill:
Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. If necessary: Neutralize
the residue with a dilute solution of acetic acid.
p. 2
Large Spill:
Oxidizing material.
Stop leak if without risk. Avoid contact with a combustible material (wood, paper, oil, clothing...). Keep substance
damp using water spray. Do not touch spilled material. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas;
dike if needed. Call for assistance on disposal. Neutralize the residue with a dilute solution of acetic acid.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep away from combustible material Do not ingest.
Do not breathe dust. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment If ingested, seek
medical advice immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes Keep away
from incompatibles such as reducing agents, organic materials, metals, acids, moisture.
Storage: Oxidizing materials should be stored in a separate safety storage cabinet or room.
Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Engineering Controls:
Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below
recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to
airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Personal Protection:
Splash goggles. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent.
Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:
Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used
to avoid inhalation of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient; consult a specialist
BEFORE handling this product.
