|Inhalation||Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. Unless exposure has been slight, obtain medical attention.|
|Ingestion||If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Obtain medical attention.|
|Skin||If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Wash clothing before re-use. If symptoms of irritation persist, see a doctor.|
|Eye contact||If in eyes, hold eyes upen, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.|
|First Aid Facilities||Eye wash. Hand wash basin.|
|Advice to Doctor||Product contains a low proportion of sodium hydroxide, disodium metasilicate and SDIC. Vomiting has not been induced because of risk of aspiration into the lungs. 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.|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Carbon dioxide, water vapour, sodium carbonate, oxides of sulphur, chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, cyanuric acid.|
|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||Not 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 and chlorine gas, a toxic gas. Contact with ammonium compounds will generate ammonia, a poisonous gas. 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||Disposal of small spillages only. For large spillages liquids should be contained using sand or earth, and both liquids and solids then transferred to salvage containers. Residues should be treated as for small spillages. CAUTION: Before dealing with spillage take necessary protective measures, inform others to keep at a safe distance and, for flammable materials, shut off all possible sources of ignition.|
CARE! Spillages will be slippery when wet. If local regulations permit, mop up with plenty of water and run to waste, diluting greatly with running water. Otherwise transfer to container and arrange removal by disposals company. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water.
|7. Handling and storage|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place, out of reach of children. Large quantities should be stored in a dangerous goods store. Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Keep container dry. Keep away from acids, aluminium, tin, zinc and galvanised iron. Protect from physical damage. Clean up all spills promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Occupational exposure limit values||Name||STEL (mgm3)||STEL (ppm)||TWA (mgm3)||TWA (ppm)||FootNote|
|Sodium hydroxide||2||Peak limitation|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Appropriate engineering controls||Do not use on aluminium, tin, copper or copper alloys, zinc or galvanised iron. If dust risk exists, consider local mechanical exhaust/extraction to keep airborne contamination below TLV.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Avoid contact with the skin. Prevent contact with the eyes. Avoid breathing the dust. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-|
Face shield or safety glasses
Gloves, rubber or plastic
Plastic apron, sleeves and boots
Dust mask. In case of vapour: 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.
