TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!   
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
WHITE-TO-YELLOW SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and irritating fumes (sulfur oxides). Reacts with acids and acid fumes. This produces toxic and irritating fumes (sulfur oxides). 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis.
