 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

 
First Aid MeasuresM
 
InhalationRemove from exposure, rest and keep warm. Unless exposure has been slight, obtain medical attention.
 
IngestionIf swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. Obtain medical attention.
 
SkinIf skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Wash clothing before re-use. If symptoms of irritation persist, see a doctor.
 
EyeIf in eyes, hold eyes upen, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.
 
First Aid FacilitiesEye wash. Hand wash basin.
 
Advice to DoctorProduct 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.
 
Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaUse dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam or water fog.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsCarbon dioxide, water vapour, sodium carbonate, oxides of sulphur, chlorine, sodium hypochlorite, cyanuric acid.
 
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 HazardsNot 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.

Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

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

 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
National Exposure Standards     Name STEL (mgm3) STEL (ppm) TWA (mgm3) TWA (ppm) FootNote
Sodium hydroxide2Peak limitation
 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Engineering ControlsDo 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.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid 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
Impervious overalls.
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.
