FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

In case of fire in the surroundings: use appropriate extinguishing media.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. Then wash away with plenty of water. Personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles.
Dry. Well closed. Separated from strong oxidants, acids.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO WHITE HYGROSCOPIC CRYSTALLINE POWDER

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating above 160C producing ammonia , nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides . The solution in water is a weak acid. Attacks mild steel. Contact with hot water may cause formation of large amounts of steam. Reacts with acids and strong oxidants .

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 10 mg/m as TWA; (ACGIH 2004).
MAK: IIb, value not established but data is available (DFG 2004).
OSHA PEL: TWA 15 mg/m3 (total) TWA 5 mg/m3 (resp)
NIOSH REL: TWA 10 mg/m3 (total) TWA 5 mg/m3 (resp)
NIOSH IDLH: 1500 mg/m3 See: 7773060


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:


INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Boiling point (decomposes): 160C
Melting point: 131C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.8
Solubility in water: very good
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20 C: negligible
