First-aid measures

General advice
: Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Eye contact : Hold eyelids apart, initiate and maintain gentle and continuous irrigation until the patient receives medical care. If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour.

Skin contact : Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay. Initiate and maintain continuous irrigation until the patient receives medical care. If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour. Cover wound with sterile dressing.

Ingestion : If a person vomits when lying on his back, place him in the recovery position. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim's head to the side.

Inhalation : If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately. Move to fresh air.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms : Repeated and/or prolonged exposure to low concentrations of vapors and/or aerosols may cause: Sore throat.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:Alcohol-resistant foam.Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry chemical, Dry sand, Limestone powder.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:May generate ammonia gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. Use of water may result in the formation of very toxic aqueous solutions. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. Downwind personnel must be evacuated. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes.
Advice for fire-fighters:Avoid contact with the skin. A face shield should be worn. Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.
Further information:Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Environmental precautions :Construct a dike to prevent spreading.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Contact Air Products' Emergency Response Center for advice. Place in appropriate chemical waste container.
Additional advice:Open enclosed spaces to outside atmosphere. If possible, stop flow of product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Avoid breathing vapors and/or aerosols. Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by government regulations. Avoid contact with eyes. Use personal protective equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Do not store near acids. Store in steel containers preferably located outdoors, above ground, and surrounded by dikes to contain spills or leaks. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Technical measures/Precautions
Do not store in reactive metal containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Provide natural or explosion-proof ventilation adequate to ensure concentrations are kept below exposure limits.

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Hand protection:Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
Neoprene gloves.
Butyl-rubber
Nitrile rubber.
Impervious gloves.

Eye/face Protection:Full face shield with goggles underneath.
Chemical resistant goggles must be worn

Skin and body protection :Impervious clothing.
Full rubber suit (rain gear).
Rubber or plastic boots.
Long sleeve shirts and trousers without cuffs.

Special instructions for protection and hygiene:Discard contaminated leather articles. Wash hands at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or using the toilet. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity:Refer to possibility of hazardous reactions and/or incompatible materials sections.
Chemical stability : Stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions : No data available.
Conditions to avoid : No data available.

Incompatible materials:Sodium hypochlorite, Organic acids (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.), Mineral acids, Oxidizing agents.
Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and galvanized surfaces.
Reaction with peroxides may result in violent decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an explosion.
Hazardous decomposition products :Nitric acid, Ammonia, Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive nitric acid, Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide (CO2).

Disposal considerations

Contact supplier if guidance is required.

Contaminated packaging:Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with federal, state, and local requirements.
