SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

STORAGE

PACKAGING & LABELLING

Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Wash away remainder with plenty of water (extra personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles).
Separated from strong oxidants, acids, food and feedstuffs. Well closed.
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.
UN Hazard Class: 8
UN Packing Group: III
ICSC: 1254 Prepared in the context of cooperation between the International Programme on Chemical Safety & the Commission of the European Communities (C) IPCS CEC 1994. No modifications to the International version have been made except to add the OSHA PELs, NIOSH RELs and NIOSH IDLH values.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO YELLOW CRYSTALS.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating or on contact with acids producing toxic fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and ammonia. Reacts violently with oxidants. Attacks many metals in presence of water at high concentration.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:


INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:


EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:

PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES

Decomposes below boiling point at 150°C
Relative density (water = 1): 2.0
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 10°C: 267

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA


N O T E S

Mainly sold as aqueous solution. Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
