Emergency overview: May be irritating to the eye, the skin, the respiratory tract, or the digestive tract. Appearance: black powder Flash Point: Not applicable Warning! Toxicological properties of this chemical have not been fully investigated. Target Organs: None Potential Health Effects Eye: May cause eye irritation. Skin: May cause skin irritation. Ingestion: May cause irritation of the digestive tract. Inhalation: May cause irritation of the respiratory tract. Chronic: Information not available.
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids from time to time. Skin: Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Seek medical attention. Wash clothing and thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Cover irritated skin with emollient or with anti-bacterial cream. If discomfort occurs or persists, seek immediate medical attention. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If alert and conscious, give 2-4 cupfuls of water or milk. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical attention. Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention. Notes to Physician:
General Information: As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH approved or equivalent, full protective gear. Extinguishing Media: This substance in noncombustible. Use extinguishing media appropriate to the surrounding fire conditions.
General Information: Use proper protective equipment as outlined in Section 8. Spills/Leaks: Sweep up or absorb material, then place in clean, dry, closed container for disposal. Provide ventilation, but avoid generating dusty conditions. Wash spill area after pick-up is complete.
Handling: Use adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash clothing before reuse. Avoid inhalation and ingestion. Wash thoroughly after handling. Storage: Store in tightly closed container in cool, dry area away from incompatible materials such as oxidizing agents. Do not store above 25°C (77°F).
Engineering Controls: Local exhaust required in handling area to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. Safety shower and eyewash station should be available to the work area. Exposure Limits: Not available. Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: ANSI approved safety glasses/goggles. Skin: Rubber/Neoprene chemical-resistant gloves. Clothing: Lab coat, apron or other chemical resistant protective clothing.
