Appearance: green-brown solid Flash Point: not available Warning! Causes respiratory tract irritation. Causes eye and skin irritation. The toxicological properties of this material are not fully known. Target Organs: Eyes, skin Potential Health Effects Eye: The toxicological properties of this material are not fully known, but similar cationic dyes have been known to produce permanent corneal or conjunctival injury. Skin: Skin irritant Ingestion: May be irritating to the gastrointestinal tract with symptoms such a nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea Inhalation: Irritating to the respiratory tract. Chronic: The toxicological properties of this material are not fully known.
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eyelids open. Seek immediate medical attention. Skin: Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops or persists, seek medical attention. Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If victim is conscious and alert, give several cupfuls of milk or water. Seek immediate medical attention. Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, supply oxygen. If breathing stops, use artificial respiration.
General Information: Protective Equipment/Clothing: Wear a NIOSH approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and firefighter turnout gear. There could be the evolution of toxic products of combustion. Firefighting equipment should be fully decontaminated after use. Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or foam.
General Information: Personal precautions: Do not attempt to take action without suitable protective clothing. Do not create dust so that there are air borne particulates that could be inhaled. Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains, rivers, or lakes. Release response: Sweep up or vacuum material, place in suitable disposal container, and retain for recycle or disposal. When pickup is complete, wash contaminated area. Do not flush spilled material to the sewer or the environment. Waste materials should be put into a labeled disposal container for disposal according to local regulations. Dispose of in accordance with all federal, state and local regulations.
Handling: Use with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not generate dust. Avoid breathing dust, or contact with skin, eyes, clothing. Wash clothing before reuse. Storage: Store in tightly closed containers in cool, dry area. Keep away from excessive heat and from oxidizing agents.
Engineering Controls: Safety shower and eyewash station required in the work area. Mechanical exhaust sufficient to keep airborne levels low required. Exposure Limits: Chemical Name ACGIH NIOSH OSHA - Final PELs Safranin O n/a n/a n/a OSHA Vacated PELs: n/a Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Chemical safety glasses or splash goggles. Skin: Appropriate gloves to prevent skin contact. Clothing: Lab coat or other protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Respirators: If irritation or other symptoms are experienced, use A NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying dust or mist respirator or European Standard EN 149.
