|3. COMPOSITION/INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS|
|Ingredients determined not to be hazardous||to 100%|
|Sodium dichloroisocyanurate, dihydrate||51580-86-0||30-60 %|
|4. FIRST AID MEASURES|
|First Aid Measures||M|
|Inhalation||Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing. Unless exposure has been slight, obtain medical attention.|
|Ingestion||If swallowed, do NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water to be taken slowly. If irritation develops or persists transport to hospital or doctor.|
|Skin||If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. Wash clothing before re-use.|
|Eye||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 is an alkaline mixture containing a moderate proportion of a chlorinating agent, with nearly 20 % available chlorine. Irritating to skin and eyes. If swallowed, possible risk of mucosal damage. Inhalation exposure may lead to delayed onset pulmonary oedema. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES|
|Suitable Extinguishing Media||Water fog or fine water spray.|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Decomposes on heating emitting soot, smoke and decomposition products.|
|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. Mixtures with combustible materials may be readily ignited and can burn fiercely, especially in the presence of moisture. Contact with acids will generate carbon dioxide, a simple asphyxiant, and chlorine, a toxic gas. May react violently with calcium hypochlorite.|
|Precautions in connection with Fire||M|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES|
|Spills & Disposal||Avoid generating dusts. Wear suitable protective equipment. Ventilate area. If possible wet area down to prevent high dust levels. If available, use dustless methods, such as a HEPA vacuum and filter. Otherwise, use a non-sparking shovel and place into a suitably labeled container for later disposal. Do not dry sweep.|
|7. HANDLING AND STORAGE|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for Safe Storage||Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, 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 calcium hypochlorite, combustible materials, acids, copper and copper alloys. Protect from physical damage. Clean up all spills promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|Additional information on precautions for use||Incompatible with: Acids, other types of chlorinating agents, oxidising agents.|
|8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Engineering Controls||Do not use copper or copper alloys as materials of construction. Good industrial hygiene practice requires that employee exposure be maintained below the recommended TLV/TWA. This is preferably achieved through the provision of adequate ventilation where necessary. Where dust cannot be controlled in this way, personal respiratory protection should be employed.|
|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
Impervious overalls. CAUTION: Cotton or linen overalls impregnated with oxidisers may be readily ignited and can burn fiercely.
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|
|Inhalation||Dust will irritate the respiratory system. Risk of tissue damage. Chlorine gas will irritate the respiratory system at levels of 1 ppm. At 1.3 ppm of chlorine there may be coughing and difficulty breathing. Higher levels may cause throat muscle spasms and suffocation. May cause pulmonary oedema (fluid in the lungs) some time after exposure.|
|Ingestion||Harmful if swallowed. Likely to cause gastric upset, a burning sensation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. May cause electrolyte disturbances if swallowed.
