Hazardous Ingredients Exposure Limits
Section 3 Health Hazard Data
|Routes Of Exposure: Exposure may be by
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 irritating to the eyes and Respiratory tract. May cause headache, dizziness, nausea
vomiting and malaise.
Skin Contact: Corrosive. Chemical and possible thermal burns. Prolonged
And widespread contact as with chemical saturated clothing
Causes reddening, swelling and damage to the skin. The use of
Chemical resistant gloves are recommended. Glove types are:
Rubber, Latex, Plastic. Do not use leather or wool.
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: Moderately toxic. May cause headache, dizziness, incoordination.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and general weakness. Ingestion
May cause red blood cell hemolysis and possible liver and kidney
Eye Contact: Causes irritation and possible cornea injury.
Other Health Information: Repeated overexposure may cause hemolysis of the red blood cells Leading to possible liver and kidney damage. Because of its Irritating and defatting properties, this material may exacerbate An existing dermatitis.
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 OSHA
Section 4 Emergency First Aid INHALATION

|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
