IV FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA
Flash Point: NA
Flammable Limits: NA
Extinguishing Media: Spread out and cool. Use water spray if necessary.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Personnel should remain upwind. Firemen should wear self contained breathing
apparatus (air-pac) and full protective clothing. Use water spray to cool containers if necessary.
Unusual Fire Explosion Hazards: Under fire conditions, toxic fumes may be evolved. Do not breathe smoke or vapors
generated. Keep dust to a minimum. The presence of powerful oxidizing agents will increase intensity of existing fires
and the possibility of an explosion exists.
V FIRST AID
First Aid for EYE Exposure: Flush eyes for 15 minutes with plenty of water, lifting upper and lower lids occasionally while
flushing. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
First Aid for SKIN Exposure: Remove contaminated clothing and wash all exposed skin surfaces thoroughly with soap

medical attention.
First Aid for INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If effects occur, consult physician immediately.
SYMPTOMS of OVEREXPOSURE: May irritate eyes, nose, throat and skin.
Ingestion of large quantities can cause nitrate poisoning.
VI REACTIVITY
Stability: Stable under normal use conditions.
Conditions to avoid: Heat and ignition sources.
Materials to Avoid: Oxidizing agents and organic materials, particularly oils, and other flammable or combustible
materials.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Decomposes under fire conditions to release ammonia and oxides of nitrogen,
phosphorus, cyanuric acid and biuret.
Hazardous polymerization: Will not occur.
