Section 2 Composition and Information on Ingredients
Hazardous Ingredients: None

Section 3 Hazards Identification
Emergency Overview Light yellow; Clear; Liquid; Slight odor Nonflammable aqueous solution. Does not meet EU, OSHA or WHMIS criteria for hazardous materials. Contains material of animal origin. Physical Hazards Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. This product contains concentrations of azide <0.1% (w/w) which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the build up of shock sensitive compounds. This product does not meet EU, OSHA or WHMIS criteria for hazardous materials. However, it does contain material of animal origin and should be considered potentially infectious. See Section 11 Toxicological Information for more detailed health information. EU: Not applicable WHMIS: Exempt Code 0=none 1=slight 2=caution 3=severe US OSHA: Not applicable
