TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible but enhances combustion of other substances. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO contact with combustibles and reducing agents.
Water in large amounts.
EXPLOSION Risk of fire and explosion on contact with combustible substances and reducing agents.


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

 •INHALATION Cough. Sore throat. see Ingestion.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN Redness.
Protective gloves.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
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 take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Abdominal pain. Diarrhoea. Drowsiness. Laboured breathing. Nausea. Vomiting. Deafness. Unconsciousness. See EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: P3 filter respirator for toxic particles. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. Do NOT absorb in saw-dust or other combustible absorbents.
Separated from combustible and reducing substances, See Chemical Dangers.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen bromide. The substance is a strong oxidant and reacts violently with combustible and reducing materials, fuels and metal powder, grease, sulphur containing compounds causing fire and explosion hazard.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK 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 irritating to the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract . The substance may cause effects on the kidneys and nervous system when ingested, resulting in renal failure, respiratory depression, hearing loss and peripheral neuropathy. The effects may be delayed.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Decomposes at 381 C
Relative density (water = 1): 3.34
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: 36.4

DATA

N O T E S
Will turn shock-sensitive if contaminated with organic substances, metal and carbon. Rinse contaminated clothes with plenty of water because of fire hazard.
