COMMENTS HEALTH: There are no known chronic hazards.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYES: If contact with eyes occurs: Immediately flush with cold water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical attention.
SKIN: If contact with skin: Brush off excess chemical and flush skin with cold water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists, get medical
attention.
INGESTION: If swallowed: Drink promptly large quantities of water. Do not induce vomiting. Avoid alcohol. Never give anything by mouth to
an unconscious person. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.
INHALATION: If inhaled: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, have trained person administer oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial
respiration. Call a physician immediately.
NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate the use of gastric lavage.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASHPOINT AND METHOD: Not Applicable
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not Applicable
GENERAL HAZARD: This product did not ignite when exposed to pallet scale burn tests. When in direct contact with combustible material, this
product may slightly enhance the burning rate of the combustible material. Under extreme heat (greater than 400F), this product will evolve
noxious chlorine containing gases necessitating the need for self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) when applying extinguishing media
(WATER).
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: In case of fire or smoke, call the fire department. Do not attempt to extinguish the fire without a self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA). Do not let the fire burn. Flood with copious amounts of water. DO NOT use ABC or other dry chemical
extinguishers since there is the potential for a violent reaction.
EXPLOSION HAZARDS: 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.
FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Firefighters should wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Using a
10% solution of sodium carbonate, thoroughly decontaminate fire fighting equipment including all fire fighting apparel after the incident.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
GENERAL PROCEDURES: 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 use floor sweeping compounds to clean up spills. Do not close containers containing wet or damp
material. They should be left open to disperse any hazardous gases that may form. Do not transport wet or damp material. Keep product out of
sewers, watersheds and water systems. Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage or disposal or cleaning of equipment. Dispose of
according to local, state and federal regulations.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
BioGuard Stingy Sticks
Page 3 of 6
HANDLING: STRONG OXIDIZING AGENT: Do not mix with other chemicals. Mix only with water. Never add water to product. Always
add product to large quantities of water. Use clean dry utensils. Do not add this product to any dispensing device containing remnants of any
other product. Such use may cause a violent reaction leading to fire or explosion. Contamination with moisture, organic matter or other
chemicals will start a chemical reaction and generate heat, hazardous gas, possible fire and explosion. In case of contamination or decomposition,
do not reseal container. If possible, isolate container in open air or well ventilated area. Flood area with large volumes of water.
STORAGE: Keep this product in original closed container when not in use. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from heat or open
flame. Do not contaminate water, food or feed by storage or disposal or cleaning of equipment. Do not store above 125 F (52 C).

ACUTE
DERMAL LD 50 : 7600 mg/kg of body weight in rabbits.
ORAL LD 50 : 600 mg/kg of body weight in rats
On contact with moisture, this material readily hydrolyzes to hypochlorous acid and cyanuric acid. The tissue damage resulting from contact is
considered to result, in part, from its hypochlorous acid decomposition products. May cause gastrointestinal and respiratory tract irritation.
May be severely irritating or corrosive to eyes and skin.
EYE EFFECTS: This product is corrosive to eyes.
SKIN EFFECTS: This product is corrosive to skin.
CHRONIC / SUBCHRONIC:
Chronic exposure to large amounts of this compound has not been characterized and the irritating properties of the compound make such an
exposure highly unlikely.
