 5. Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing mediaUse extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
Hazards from Combustion ProductsCorrosive or toxic fumes.
Specific MethodsIn case of small fire/explosion use water. In case of major emergency use PPE: breathing apparatus and protective gloves.
Specific hazards arising from the chemicalNot flammable. Contact with aluminium, tin, zinc or galvanised iron may
generate hydrogen, a flammable gas. Will react vigorously or violently with
acids, generating much heat, and giving off carbon dioxide, a simple
asphyxiant. Contact with ammonium compounds will generate ammonia, a
poisonous gas.

Precautions in connection with FireM
Other InformationIf 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 ProceduresKeep 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 & DisposalFor 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 HandlingM
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesStore 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.

Biological Limit ValuesM
Appropriate engineering controlsIn 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.
Respiratory ProtectionM
Eye ProtectionM
Hand ProtectionM
Personal Protective EquipmentThis 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.

 11. Toxicological Information

Toxicology InformationNo adverse health effects are expected, if the product is handled in accordance with this Material Safety Data Sheet and the product label. Symptoms and effects that may arise if the product is mishandled and overexposure occurs are:
Acute Toxicity - OralLD50 Potassium Hydroxide: 273mg/kg oral, rabbit
