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
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
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
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
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|
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
