|4. First-aid measures|
|Inhalation||Remove victim from exposure - avoid becoming a casualty. Remove contaminated clothing and loosen remaining clothing. Allow patient to assume most comfortable position and keep warm. Keep at rest until fully recovered. If breathing laboured and patient cyanotic (blue), ensure airways are clear and have qualified person give oxygen through a face mask. If breathing has stopped apply artificial respiration at once. In event of cardiac arrest, apply external cardiac massage. seek medical advice.|
|Ingestion||Immediately rinse mouth with water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Seek immediate medical attention.|
|Skin||Remove all contaminated clothing and immediately wash affected area with plenty of water. If swelling, redness, blistering or irritation occurs, seek medical advice.|
|Eye contact||Hold eyes open and flood with running water for at least 15 minutes, bathe eyes with soothing eyedrops or sterile saline, urgently seek medical attention. Transport to hospital or medical centre.|
|First Aid Facilities||Eye wash station, safety shower and normal washroom facilities.|
|Advice to Doctor||Product is potassium hydroxide solution. If swallowed, may cause holes in stomach and intestines. Evacuation of stomach should not be attempted. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|5. Fire-fighting measures|
|Suitable extinguishing media||Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or water fog, appropriate to surrounding fire.|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||M|
|Special Protective Equipment for fire fighters||Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) required for fire-fighting personnel. If possible to do so safely, shut off fuel to fire. Use water spray to spray to cool fire-exposed surfaces and to protect personnel.|
|Specific hazards arising from the chemical||If tanks, drums or containers of this material are heated, they may rupture and project corrosive materials over a wide area.|
|Precautions in connection with Fire||M|
|6. Accidental release measures|
|Spills & Disposal||Spillages are slippery. Avoid accidents, clean up immediately. Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contamination. Contain using sand or soil - prevent run off into drains and waterways. Use absorbent (soil, sand, vermiculite or other inert material). Collect and seal in properly labelled containers for disposal. Wash area down with excess water. Caution - heat may be evolved.|
|7. Handling and storage|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in a cool place, out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded dangerous goods store. Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from acids, foodstuffs and oxidising materials. Keep away from ammonium salts. Do not store in aluminium or galvanised containers or use die-cast zinc or aluminium bungs. Steel bungs should be used. Reacts exothermically on dilution with water. Keep containers closed at all times - check regularly for leaks. Prevent long contact with glass surfaces. Protect from physical damage. Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Occupational exposure limit values||Name||STEL (mgm3)||STEL (ppm)||TWA (mgm3)||TWA (ppm)||FootNote|
|Potassium hydroxide||2||Peak limitation|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Appropriate engineering controls||Do not use on aluminium, tin, zinc or galvanised iron. Consider local mechanical exhaust/extraction to keep airborne contamination below TLV. Must only be dispensed via Automatic Dosing Equipment.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Prevent contact with the eyes. Avoid contact with the skin. Avoid breathing|
vapours. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as
appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Goggles, face shield or safety glasses
Gloves, neoprene or nitrile rubber or plastic
Plastic apron, sleeves and boots.
Respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 dust
mask (disposable) or with replaceable filters is recommended. Filter capacity
and respirator type depends on exposure levels and type of contaminant. If
entering spaces where the airborne concentration of a contaminant is unknown
then the use of a Self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with positive
pressure air supply complying with AS/NZS 1715 / 1716, or any other acceptable
International Standard is recommended.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning
chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the
