 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

 
First Aid MeasuresM
 
InhalationRemove 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.
 
IngestionImmediately rinse mouth with water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Seek immediate medical attention.
 
SkinRemove all contaminated clothing and immediately wash affected area with plenty of water. If swelling, redness, blistering or irritation occurs, seek medical advice.
 
EyeHold 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 FacilitiesEye wash station, safety shower and normal washroom facilities.
 
Advice to DoctorProduct is potassium hydroxide solution. If swallowed, may cause holes in stomach and intestines. Evacuation of stomach should not be attempted. Contact Poisons Information Centre.
 
Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaUse dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or water fog, appropriate to surrounding fire.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsM
 
Special Protective Equipment for fire fightersSelf-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 HazardsIf tanks, drums or containers of this material are heated, they may rupture and project corrosive materials over a wide area.
 
Hazchem Code2X
 
Precautions in connection with FireM
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalSpillages 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 HandlingM
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore 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.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
National Exposure Standards     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
Potassium hydroxide2Peak limitation
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Engineering ControlsDo 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.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentPrevent 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
toilet.

 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

 
Toxicology InformationNo adverse health effects are expected, if the product is handled in accordance with this Safety Data Sheet and the product label. Symptoms and effects that may arise if the product is mishandled and overexposure occurs are:
 
InhalationInhalation of mists of the solution will cause severe irritation to the nose, throat and respiratory system with effects including: Dizziness, headache, coughing, loss of co-ordination, chest pains, respiratory paralysis and or failure.
 
IngestionCan be fatal. Corrosive. Causes burns to mouth and throat, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pains and diarrhoea (occasionally bloody). Can also cause swelling of the larynx and suffocation, perforation of stomach and intestines with constrictive scarring, heart failure and coma.
 
SkinCorrosive to skin - may cause skin burns, with effects including; Redness, blistering, localised pain, dermatitis and deep burns. Skin contact often does not cause immediate pain, thus care should be taken to avoid contamination of gloves and footwear. Repeated or prolonged contact may lead to irritant contact dermatitis.
 
EyeCorrosive to eyes; contact can cause conjunctivitis, corneal burns and ulceration, which can result in permanent injury and possible loss of sight.
 
Chronic EffectsLong term, low level exposure can lead to irritation of skin, lungs, nose, throat and mouth.
