|Advice to Doctor||Product is a mixture containing a moderate proportion of potassium hydroxide. Corrosive by all routes. Risk of serious eye damage. If swallowed, may cause holes in stomach and intestines; gastric lavage may be contraindicated. Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES|
|Suitable Extinguishing Media||Use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Corrosive or toxic fumes.|
|Specific Methods||In case of small fire/explosion use water. In case of major emergency use PPE: breathing apparatus and protective gloves.|
|Specific Hazards||Not flammable. Contact with aluminium, tin, zinc or galvanised iron may|
generate hydrogen, a flammable gas. Will react vigorously or violently with

|Precautions in connection with Fire||M|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Other Information||If tanks, drums or containers of this material are heated, they may rupture and project corrosive materials over a wide area.|
|6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES|
|Emergency Procedures||Keep unnecessary people away; Isolate hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; Keep out of low areas. Do not walk or touch spilt material unless wearing personal protection as outlined under MSDS. Shut off ignition sources, no flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Water spray may reduce vapour.|
|Spills & Disposal||For large spills:|
Contain spillages with sand or earth. Transfer both liquid and solids to suitable container(s). Treat residues as for small spills.
For small spills:
If local regulations permit, mop up with plenty of water and run to waste, diluting greatly with running water. Otherwise, absorb on inert absorbent and transfer to suitable container. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water and detergent. Ventilate area to dispel any residual vapours.
|7. HANDLING AND STORAGE|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for Safe Storage||Store in cool place in original container. Store away from oxidisers, acids and foodstuffs. Keep containers closed when not in use. Store out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a bunded area. Do not mix with other chemicals. Clean up all spills and splashes promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION|
|National Exposure Standards||Name||STEL (mgm3)||STEL (ppm)||TWA (mgm3)||TWA (ppm)||FootNote|
|Potassium hydroxide||2||Peak limitation|
|Sodium hydroxide||2||Peak limitation|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Engineering Controls||In very confined spaces have sufficient ventilation. Do not atomise the product. Do not enter confined spaces where vapours may have acculumated. Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not decant in unlabelled bottles. Avoid using aluminium, tin, zinc, galvanised iron, wood or wood products as materials of construction.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||This product is extremely corrosive. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing aerosols. Recommended personal protection:-|
Neoprene or nitrile apron
Neoprene or nitrile.
Chemical goggles or faceshield to protect eyes.
Respirators in accordance with AS/NZS 1715/1716. The use of a P1 respirator 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.
