GHS

General Information

Name:
Sodium O-isobutyl dithiocarbonate/Sodium isobutyl xanthate
Implementation:
EU
Remarks:
Sodium isobutyl xanthate in the presence of moisture and/or heat decomposes. Carbon disulphide (CAS number 75–15–0) is the major decomposition product and has a low autoignition point and is highly flammable and therefore the health effects of carbon disulphide must also be considered

Precautionary statements

P302: IF ON SKIN:
If skin or hair contact occurs, immediately remove any contaminated clothing and wash skin and hair thoroughly with running water. If swelling, redness, blistering or irritation occurs seek medical assistance.
P301: IF SWALLOWED:
Rinse mouth with water. If swallowed, give a glass of water to drink. If vomiting occurs give further water. Seek immediate medical assistance.
P305+P351+P338: IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
P223: Do not allow contact with water.
P235: Keep cool.
P232: Protect from moisture.

Additional labelling requirements

EUH018: In use, may form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture.
Sodium isobutyl xanthate in contact with water will emit carbon disulphide which is highly flammable. The dry powder or pellet form may also be flammable because of the presence of moisture in the product.
