FIRE Combustible.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!   
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Wheezing.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL
PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

Transport Emergency Card: TEC (R)-80GC10-II+III.  Separated from acids and food and feedstuffs. 

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
May explode on heating above 130°C (anhydrous). Decomposes slowly under the influence of air. This produces chlorine(trihydrate). Decomposes on heating and on contact with acids. This produces toxic gases. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Repeated or prolonged inhalation may cause asthma. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Decomposes
Density (trihydrate): 1.4 g/cm³
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 25°C: (good, trihydrate)
Flash point: 192°C c.c. (trihydrate)
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.84 (estimated) 
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. 

NOTES
Do NOT take working clothes home.
The symptoms of asthma often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact with this substance.
The recommendations on this Card also apply to Chloramine-T trihydrate (CAS 7080-50-4).
