|■ Possible cancer-causing agent following repeated inhalation*.||■ Keep container tightly closed.|
|* (limited evidence).||■ This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe way.|
|■ Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.|
|■ In case of contact with eyes, rinse with plenty of water and contact Doctor or Poisons Information Centre.|
|■ If swallowed, IMMEDIATELY contact Doctor or Poisons Information Centre. (show this container or label).|
|■ Use appropriate container to avoid environmental contamination.|
|■ Avoid release to the environment. Refer to special instructions/Safety data sheets.|
|■ This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste.|
· For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor at once.
· Urgent hospital treatment is likely to be needed.
· If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting.
· If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration.
■ If this product comes in contact with the eyes:
· Immediately hold eyelids apart and flush the eye continuously with running water.
· Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.
· Continue flushing until advised to stop by the Poisons Information Centre or a doctor, or for at least 15 minutes.
· Transport to hospital or doctor without delay.
■ If skin or hair contact occurs:
· Immediately flush body and clothes with large amounts of water, using safety shower if available.
· Quickly remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear.
· Wash skin and hair with running water. Continue flushing with water until advised to stop by the Poisons Information Centre.
· Transport to hospital, or doctor.
· If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
· Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
· Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures.
· Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary.
■ For acute or short term repeated exposures to strong acids: · Airway problems may arise from laryngeal edema and inhalation exposure. Treat with 100% oxygen initially. · Respiratory distress may require cricothyroidotomy if endotracheal intubation is contraindicated by excessive swelling · Intravenous lines should be established immediately in all cases where there is evidence of circulatory compromise. · Strong acids produce a coagulation necrosis characterised by formation of a coagulum (eschar) as a result of the dessicating action of the acid on proteins in specific tissues.
· Water spray or fog. · Foam. · Dry chemical powder. · BCF (where regulations permit).
· Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. · Wear full body protective clothing with breathing apparatus. · Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course. · Use fire fighting procedures suitable for surrounding area.
· Non combustible. · Not considered to be a significant fire risk. · Acids may react with metals to produce hydrogen, a highly flammable and explosive gas. · Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. Decomposition may produce toxic fumes of: phosphorus oxides (POx), sulfur oxides (SOx).
■ None known.
Gas tight chemical resistant suit.
Limit exposure duration to 1 BA set 30 mins.
· Clean up all spills immediately. · Avoid breathing vapours and contact with skin and eyes. · Control personal contact by using protective equipment. · Contain and absorb spill with sand, earth, inert material or vermiculite.
· Clear area of personnel and move upwind. · Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard. · Wear full body protective clothing with breathing apparatus. · Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course.
Personal Protective Equipment advice is contained in Section 8 of the MSDS.
· Avoid all personal contact, including inhalation.
· Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs.
· Use in a well-ventilated area.
· WARNING: To avoid violent reaction, ALWAYS add material to water and NEVER water to material.
· DO NOT allow clothing wet with material to stay in contact with skin.
· DO NOT use aluminium or galvanised containers.
· Check regularly for spills and leaks.
· Reacts vigorously with alkalis.
· Reacts with mild steel, galvanised steel / zinc producing hydrogen gas which may form an explosive mixture with air.
Reacts with mild steel and zinc to produce hydrogen (H2).
· Inorganic acids are generally soluble in water with the release of hydrogen ions. The resulting solutions have pH's of less than 7.0.
· Inorganic acids neutralise chemical bases (for example: amines and inorganic hydroxides) to form salts - neutralisation can generate dangerously large amounts of heat in small spaces.
· The dissolution of inorganic acids in water or the dilution of their concentrated solutions with additional water may generate significant heat.
· The addition of water to inorganic acids often generates sufficient heat in the small region of mixing to cause some of the water to boil explosively. The resulting "bumping" can spatter the acid.
· Store in original containers.
· Keep containers securely sealed.
· Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
· Store away from incompatible materials and foodstuff containers.

Type BE- P Filter of sufficient capacity
· Safety glasses with unperforated side shields may be used where continuous eye protection is desirable, as in laboratories; spectacles are not sufficient where complete eye protection is needed such as when handling bulk- quantities, where there is a danger of splashing, or if the material may be under pressure · Chemical goggles.whenever there is a danger of the material coming in contact with the eyes; goggles must be properly fitted · Full face shield (20 cm, 8 in minimum) may be required for supplementary but never for primary protection of eyes; these afford face protection. · Alternatively a gas mask may replace splash goggles and face shields.
· Elbow length PVC gloves. · When handling corrosive liquids, wear trousers or overalls outside of boots, to avoid spills entering boots.
· Overalls. · PVC Apron. · PVC protective suit may be required if exposure severe. · Eyewash unit. The local concentration of material, quantity and conditions of use determine the type of personal protective equipment required. For further information consult site specific CHEMWATCH data (if available), or your Occupational Health and Safety Advisor.
■ General exhaust is adequate under normal operating conditions. Local exhaust ventilation may be required in special circumstances.

· Recycle wherever possible.
· Consult manufacturer for recycling options or consult local or regional waste management authority for disposal if no suitable treatment or disposal facility can be identified.
· Treat and neutralise at an approved treatment plant. Treatment should involve: Neutralisation with soda-ash or soda-lime followed by: burial in a land-fill specifically licenced to accept chemical and / or pharmaceutical wastes or Incineration in a licenced apparatus (after admixture with suitable combustible material).
· Decontaminate empty containers with 5% aqueous sodium hydroxide or soda ash, followed by water. Observe all label safeguards until containers are cleaned and destroyed.
· Containers may still present a chemical hazard/ danger when empty.
· Return to supplier for reuse/ recycling if possible.
· If container can not be cleaned sufficiently well to ensure that residuals do not remain or if the container cannot be used to store the same product, then puncture containers, to prevent re-use, and bury at an authorised landfill.
· Where possible retain label warnings and MSDS and observe all notices pertaining to the product.
