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 water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   AVOID ALL CONTACT!   
Inhalation   Use local exhaust.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (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 covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
BROWN CRYSTALLINE POWDER WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
The vapour is heavier than air. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride and nitrogen oxides. Reacts with oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

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

Effects of short-term exposure
 

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