TYPES OF HAZARD
/ EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!   
Inhalation Cough.  Use local exhaust and breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic gases of nitrogen oxides and chlorine. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK (not established):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
See Notes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
See Notes.
