Section 3. Hazards Identification
Physical State and Appearance Emergency Overview

Liquid. DANGER! CONTAINS MATERIAL WHICH MAY CAUSE LUNGS, DIGESTIVE SYSTEM DAMAGE. CAUSES SEVERE SKIN BURNS. CAUSES SEVERE EYE BURNS. CAUSES SEVERE RESPIRATORY TRACT BURNS. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not get on skin or clothing. Do not get in eyes. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Absorbed through skin. Dermal contact. Eye contact. Inhalation. Ingestion.

Routes of Entry Potential Acute Health Effects

Eyes Very hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant). Hazardous in case of eye contact (corrosive). Inflammation of the eye is characterized by redness, watering, and itching. Skin Very hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant). Hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive). Skin contact may produce burns. Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering. Inhalation Very hazardous in case of inhalation (lung irritant). Hazardous in case of inhalation (lung corrosive). Inhalation of the spray mist may produce severe irritation of respiratory tract, characterized by coughing, choking, or shortness of breath. Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Ingestion May be fatal if swallowed. May cause burns to mouth, throat and stomach.
Potential Chronic Health Effects
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.

Medical Conditions Repeated or prolonged contact with spray mist may produce chronic eye irritation and severe skin Aggravated by Overexposure irritation. Repeated or prolonged exposure to spray mist may produce respiratory tract irritation leading to frequent attacks of bronchial infection.

Section 4. First Aid Measures
Eye Contact

Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention. If the chemical got onto the clothed portion of the body, remove the contaminated clothes as quickly as possible, protecting your own hands and body. Place the victim under a deluge shower. If the chemical got on the victim's exposed skin, such as the hands : Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin. Cold water may be used. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention. Not available.

Section 6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill and Leak Large Spill and Leak

Dilute with water and mop up, or absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. If necessary: Neutralize the residue with a dilute solution of sodium carbonate. Corrosive liquid. Stop leak if without risk. Absorb with DRY earth, sand or other non-combustible material. Do not get water inside container. Do not touch spilled material. Use water spray curtain to divert vapor drift. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Eliminate all ignition sources. Call for assistance on disposal. Neutralize the residue with a dilute solution of sodium carbonate.
