Procedures to be followed in case of spills or leaks: Dike larger spills to minimize the contaminated
area and facilitate salvage or disposal. Avoid run off into storm sewers and ditches which may lead to
natural waterways. Advise authorities of larger spills. Mop, wipe or soak-up small leaks immediately.
Waste disposal: Incinerate or landfill in accordance with federal, provincial and local regulations.
Containers when emptied may retain hazardous residues and should be commercially cleaned before
reuse.
Special handling procedures and equipment: Avoid prolonged or frequent contact when handling
material. Avoid breathing mists or vapour. Handle only in adequately ventilated areas.
Specific storage requirements: Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a cool and dry location
away from oxidizing and reducing agents.
TDG Classification: CORROSIVE LIQUIDS, POISONOUS, N.O.S.; UN 2922; Class 8 (6.1, 9.2); PG II
                                             VII. FIRST AID
Contact with skin: Wash off in flowing water or shower. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Contact with eyes: Immediately flush eyes with water for 15 minutes and call a physician.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth. If
breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Keep person at rest and call a physician immediately. NOTE: If
victim is unconscious, never induce vomiting nor give liquids. Place victim in stable side position and
keep warm.
