Description of First Aid Measures First-aid Measures General: First-aid Measures After Inhalation: May cause irritation, along with coughing. If respiratory irritation or distress occurs, remove victim to fresh air. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: May cause skin irritation. In case of contact, wash with plenty of soap and water. Seek medical attention if irritation persists. First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: May cause irritation. Irrigate eyes with water and repeat until pain free. Seek medical attention if irritation develops, or if vision changes occur. First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Overdose symptoms may include numbness or tingling in hands or feet, uneven heart rate, paralysis, feeling faint, chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, diarrhea, sweating, general ill feeling, or seizure (convulsions). If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-3 glasses of water to drink. If conscious, do not induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not leave victim unattended. To prevent aspiration of swallowed product, lay victim on side with head lower than waist. 4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms/Injuries: Symptoms/Injuries After Inhalation: Symptoms/Injuries After Skin Contact: Symptoms/Injuries After Eye Contact: Symptoms/Injuries After Ingestion: Chronic Symptoms: 4.3. Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment Needed Inhalation of product may aggravate existing chronic respiratory problems such as asthma, emphysema, or bronchitis. Skin contact may aggravate existing skin disease. Chronic overexposure may cause pneumoconiosis ("dusty lung" disease). SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES 5.1. Extinguishing Media Suitable Extinguishing Media: Non-combustible. Use extinguishing media suitable for surrounding conditions. Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: 5.2. Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture Fire Hazard: Explosion Hazard: In a fire this material may decompose, releasing oxides of carbon, sulfur, potassium and nitrogen (see Section 10). Hazardous Combustion Products: Carbon and sulfur oxides Reactivity: 5.3. Advice for Firefighters Precautionary Measures Fire: Firefighting Instructions: Protection During Firefighting: As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, NIOSH approved or equivalent and full protective gear. SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES 6.1. Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures General Measures: Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Minimum - safety glasses, gloves, and a dust respirator. 6.1.1. For Non-emergency Personnel Protective Equipment: Emergency Procedures: 6.1.2. For Emergency Responders Protective Equipment: Emergency Procedures: NA 6.2. Environmental Precautions Prevent material from entering waterways. 6.3. Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up For Containment: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Methods for Cleaning Up: Avoid dust formation; clean up released material using vacuum or wet sweep and shovel to minimize generation of dust. Bag and transfer to properly labeled containers. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete. 6.4. Reference to Other Sections See heading 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection. SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE 7.1. Precautions for Safe Handling Additional Hazards When Processed: Keep product in original container or extinguisher. Contents may be under pressure - inspect for extinguisher rust periodically to ensure container integrity. Hygiene Measures: Good personal hygiene practices essential, such as avoiding food, tobacco products, or other hand-to- mouth contact when handling. Wash thoroughly after handling. 7.2. Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities Technical Measures: Storage Conditions: Incompatible Products: Do not mix with other extinguishing agents, particularly potassium bicarbonate and sodium bicarbonate. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong acids. Do not store in high humidity. Do not combine with chlorine compounds. 7.3.
