TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!   
Inhalation Cough.  Use ventilation (not if powder).  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety spectacles.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.  Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

UN Classification
UN Hazard Class: 6.1; UN Pack Group: II 
GHS Classification
 

EMERGENCY RESPONSE SAFE STORAGE
Transport Emergency Card: TEC (R)-61S1578 (solid) or 61GT1-II (liquid).  Separated from bases, strong oxidants and food and feedstuffs. Provision to contain effluent from fire extinguishing. 

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
YELLOW CRYSTALS OR LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on contact with hot surfaces or flames. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes of nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). Reacts with strong oxidants and strong bases. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV not established.
MAK (not established):. 

Routes of exposure
