Section 3 Health Hazard Data

Routes of Exposure: Exposure may be by  INHALATION and/or SKIN or EYE contact, depending on conditions of use. To  minimize exposure, follow recommendations for proper use - ventilation and  personal protective equipment.

ACUTE HEALTH HAZARDS

Inhalation: High concentrations are slightly  irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract.

Skin Contact: Corrosive. Chemical and possible  corneal injury, burns. Prolonged and widespread contact, as with chemical  saturated clothing can cause reddening, swelling and damage to the skin. The use  of chemical resistant gloves is recommended. Glove types are: rubber, latex,  plastic. Do not use leather or wool gloves. Penetrates skin readily. Frequent or  widespread contact may result in the absorption of potentially harmful amounts.  Signs and symptoms of toxicity are similar to those of swallowing.

Swallowing: Corrosive. Possible spasms.  Vomiting, tissue destruction. Possible fatal injury.

Eye Contact: Causes severe corrosive damage  and possible blindness if not treated immediately.

CARCINOGENICITY: The components in this  product are not considered to be a carcinogen by the National Toxicology  Program, the International Agency for Research on Cancer or the Occupation  Safety and Health Administration.

 

Section 4 Emergency First Aid INHALATION

INHALATION Remove from exposure, get medical attention if  necessary.
SKIN CONTACT Remove contaminated clothing and wash with  water.(*note, a simple water rinse is not adequate to remove this product from the skin. Continue to water, flush until slipperiness is gone.)
INGESTION Drink plenty of water or fruit juice. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING! Get immediate medical attention.
EYE CONTACT Flush with water for 10 - 15 minutes,  including under the eyelids. Seek medical attention. .

Section 5 Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point                                 not established
Flammability limits in air
        
not established
Extinguishing Media
              
water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, alcohol-type or universal-type  foams applied by manufacturer's recommended techniques.
Special Fire Fighting

Full  protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus should be  worn.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards . . Keep containers  closed. Isolated from heat or electrical equipment, and open flames. Closed  containers may explode upon exposure to extreme heat. During emergency  conditions overexposure to decomposition products may cause a health hazard.  Symptoms ma not be immediately apparent. Obtain medical attention.

Section 6 Soils or Leak Procedures

Protective clothing and equipment must be worn by  clean-up personnel. Contain spillage or leakage in suitable container or contain  in a holding area. A temporary holding area may be formed with an earthen dike  system. Do not allow drainage to reach sewers, streams or storm conduits.  Recover with vacuum equipment such as a septic tank truck or neutralize with  weak acid solutions and flush with water. Avoid splashing or misting which could  increase health hazards.
Section 7 & 8 Precautions for Safe Handling & Use/Personal Protection
Respiratory Protection . . . . . . . none normally required w/adequate  ventilation
Ventilation . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . local exhaust is recommended,  general mechanical ventilation is adequate
Protective Clothing . . . . . . . . . . gloves, coveralls, aprons, boots, as  needed to prevent skin contact
Eye Protection . . . . . . . . . . . . . safety glasses or goggles should be  worn in all industrial operations

Handling Instructions: Handle as corrosive  liquid as appropriate. Avoid eye contact and prolonged contact with the skin.  Use adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling

Section 10 Reactivity Data
Product Stability                             stable
 Chemical Incompatibility              
This  product is alkali and not compatible with strong acids
 Hazardous Decomposition          
If used in  tank cleaning applications this material, upon contact with certain food  products or their residues which contain reducing sugars may react to form  carbon monoxide gas. Proper tank entry and occupancy procedures should be  observed. Monitor the tank atmosphere for the presence of carbon monoxide. Under  fire conditions this material will not support combustion. However, it may react  with certain metals to form flammable hydrogen gas.
 Hazardous Polymerization            will not occur
