SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
White, granular solid with no odor.
WARNING! Corrosive to skin and eyes. Nose and throat irritant. Harmful if swallowed.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYE: May cause eye corrosion or ulceration. Severe eye damage may result if not immediately treated.
SKIN: Skin contact with aqueous solutions or the dry powder upon contact with moisture or perspiration may
cause skin burns or ulceration; temporary body hair loss may occur in contacted areas. Skin contact with the
product may cause allergic skin reactions in sensitive individuals.

Page Number: 2 of 7
INHALATION: May cause nose bleeds and irritation of the upper respiratory passages with coughing and
discomfort.
INGESTION: May cause gastritis possibly progressing to necrosis or hemorrhage.
CHRONIC EXPOSURE/CARCINOGENICITY: None of the components present in this material at
concentrations of equal to or greater than 0.1% are listed by IARC, NTP, OSHA or ACGIH as a carcinogen.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE: Eye corrosion. Skin burns. Nose bleeds or coughing.
Stomach pain.
AGGRAVATION OF PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: Individuals with preexisting diseases of the skin or
gastrointestinal tract may have increased susceptibility to the toxicity of excessive exposures.
POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: None.
SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
FIRST AID PROCEDURES
EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids open.
Contact a physician.
SKIN CONTACT: Immediately wash skin contaminated skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash before re-use. Contact a physician.
INHALATION: Remove victim from exposure to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing
is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical advice if effects persist.
INGESTION: If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. Immediately give two glasses of water. Seek immediate
medical assistance.
NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: None.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASH POINT: Not available
UPPER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
FLAMMABLITY CLASS (OSHA): Not applicable
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not available
LOWER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
FLAME PROPAGATION/BURNING RATE: Not available
UNIQUE FIRE PROPERTIES: Improper storage of large masses of this product can trap heat and lead to ignition of
combustibles (see handling and storage).
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Grinding or intensive mixing may cause decomposition with liberation of
heat and oxygen; ignition of oxidizable material if present may occur.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Water. Do not use carbon dioxide or other gas-filled fire extinguishers; they will have no
effect on decomposing persulfates.
PROTECTION OF FIREFIGHTERS: Will release oxygen when heated, intensifying a fire.

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: See Section 8 (Personal Protective Equipment).
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: None known.
METHODS FOR CLEANING UP: Sweep up. Flush area with low-pressure water.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
SAFE HANDLING RECOMMENDATIONS
VENTILATION: Use sufficient ventilation to keep employee exposure below recommended limits.
FIRE PREVENTION: Use in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from heat sources.
SPECIAL HANDLING REQUIREMENTS: Do not inhale. Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. Wash
thoroughly after handling. Wash clothing after use.
SAFE STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
CONTAINMENT: No special containment.
STORAGE ROOM RECOMMENDATIONS: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from heat sources.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: The mixture of this product with compounds containing halides or active
halogens can cause release of the respective halogen if moisture is present. For example, mixture with chloride
can cause release of chlorine gas; mixture with cyanides can cause release of hydrogen cyanide gas; and
heavy metal salts such as those of cobalt, nickel, copper, or manganese cause the evolution of oxygen.
STORAGE CONDITIONS: Stack on pallets providing air space; closely stacked bags should not exceed a 4 ft.
cube. Keep packages dry.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use sufficient ventilation to keep employee exposure below recommended limits.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: For operations where eye or face contact can occur, wear chemical, splash proof
goggles or face shield.
SKIN PROTECTION: For operations where skin contact can occur, wear impervious clothing such as apron,
boots, or whole bodysuit.
HAND PROTECTION: For operations where hand contact can occur, wear impervious rubber or neoprene
gloves. Gloves may be decontaminated by washing with mild soap and water.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.134 and
ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator’s use. A
NIOSH/MSHA approved air-purifying respirator with a dust/mist cartridge or canister may be permissible under
certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits. Protection

provided by air purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any
potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known or any other circumstances where airpurifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
GOOD HYGEIENE/WORK PRACTICES: Always follow good hygiene/work practices by avoiding vapors or
mists and contact with eyes and skin. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and before eating or drinking.
Always wear the appropriate PPE when repairing or performing maintenance on contaminated equipment.
