HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION Appearance: Clear, |Physical State: |Odor: Pungent odor of pink to light red | |ammonia liquid | | Potential Health Effects Principle Routes of Exposure: Inhalation, eye contact, skin contact, ingestion. Acute Effects: Eyes |Severe irritation or burns, may lead to blindness. Skin |Local irritation, dry skin, burns. Inhalation |Irritation or burns of the respiratory system, |headache, coughing, lung congestion or inflammation, |pulmonary edema, breathing difficulty. Headache, |dizziness, drowsiness, loss of appetite and an |inability to concentrate. Ingestion |Burning pain in mouth, throat, constriction of |throat, coughing, followed by nausea, vomiting or |diarrhea. Ingestion may prove fatal. Notes: Chronic Effects: Eyes | Skin | Inhalation | Ingestion | Notes: Aggravated Medical Conditions: Individuals with pre-existing nervous system disorders, skin disorders, eye problems, or impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of overexposure.

FIRST AID MEASURES General Advice Eyes |Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water |for at least 15 minutes. Eyelids should be held apart |and away from eyeball for thorough rinsing. Do not |permit victim to rub eyes. Get immediate medical |attention. Skin |Immediately flush skin with copious amounts of water |for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated |clothing and shoes. Do not rub or apply ointment to |affected area. Obtain medical attention if irritation |persists. Wash clothing before re-use. Inhalation |Remove subject immediately to fresh air. Give |artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. If |breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get immediate |medical attention. Ingestion |Contact a Poison Control Center immediately. Do NOT |induce vomiting. If conscious, have victim swallow |large amounts of water. Do not give anything by mouth |to an unconscious or convulsing person. Get immediate |medical attention. Notes to Physician | Protection of | First-aiders | Notes | 5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES Flammability/Flammable |Lower (Unknown) properties |Upper(Unknown) Flash point |Less than 50 degrees F Recommended Extinguishing |"Alcohol resistant" foam, CO2 or dry chemical. Media | Special Fire-Fighting |Note: Individuals should perform only those Procedures |fire-fighting procedures for which they have |been trained. Remove all sources of ignition. |Move exposed containers from fire area if it |can be done without risk. Firefighters should |wear proper protective equipment and |self-contained breathing apparatus with full |facepiece operated in positive pressure mode. |Spray extinguishing media directly into base |of flames. Water may be used to keep |fire-exposed containers cool. | Explosion Data |Unusual fire and Explosion hazard: When |heated, mixture will give off ammonia gas, a |strong irritant to eyes, respiratory tract, |and mucous membranes. Other toxic gases |produced are oxides of nitrogen, carbon |monoxide, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. Closed |containers exposed to heat may develop |pressure and explode. Alcohol vapors are |heavier than air and may travel a considerable |distance to a source of ignition and flash |back. Alcohols burn with a pale blue flame |which may be extremely hard to see under |normal lighting conditions. Personnel may be |able to feel the heat of the fire without |seeing flames. Extreme caution must be |exercised in fighting alcohol fires. Sensitivity to Mechanical | Impact | Sensitivity to Static | Discharge | | Specific Hazards from | Chemical | | Protective Equipment | NFPA |Health Hazard: |Flammability: 3|Instability:|Physical Hazard |3 | |1 | HMIS |Health Hazard: |Flammability: |Physical |PPE: | | |Hazard: | 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES Personal Precautions Environmental Precautions Methods for Containment Methods for Cleaning Up Notes: For large spills, stop leak if you can do so without risk. Extinguish all sources of ignition. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, chemical safety goggles and full protective clothing. Ventilate area. Spilled liquids should be contained and not washed into sewers or ground water. Contain by diking with non-combustible absorbent materials and place residue in DOT approved waste container. Comply with all applicable local, state and federal regulations on spill reporting, handling and disposal of waste. 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling: All ignition sources should be eliminated. Remove closure carefully; internal pressure may be present. Keep closure up to prevent leakage. When contents are being transferred, metallic containers must be bonded to the receiving container and grounded to avoid static discharges. Never use pressure to empty containers. Replace closure carefully after each opening. Storage: Protect containers from physical damage. Detached or outside storage is preferred. Inside storage should be in an NFPA approved flammable liquids storage room or cabinet. Store in corrosion-proof area at temperatures below 77 degrees F (25oC). Do not store in direct sunlight. Isolate from incompatible materials. Keep containers tightly closed. 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION Exposure Guidelines Chemical Name |ACGIH TLV |OSHA PEL |NIOSH IDLH |OTHER | | | | | | | | | | | | Engineering Measures Personal Protective Equipment Eyes/Face |Not required for product (JAC unit dose inhalant) Protection |use. When handling bulk material, always wear |gas-tight, splash-proof chemical safety goggles |meeting OSHA 29CFR 1910.133 specifications. Skin and Body |Skin Protection: Not required for product (JAC unit Protection |dose inhalant) use. Use rubber gloves, protective |suit, face shield and overshoes when handling bulk |product. Respiratory | Protection | Ventilation/Other |Not required for product (JAC unit dose inhalant) |use. When handling bulk material, use general or |local exhaust ventilation to meet TLV requirements. |Where engineering controls are not feasible or |sufficient to achieve full conformance with |acceptable exposure limits, use NIOSH approved |respiratory protection equipment. Care must be taken |to assure that any respirator chosen is capable of |protecting the user from both ammonia and ethyl |alcohol vapors. In some cases, a self-contained |breathing apparatus may be advisable. Hygiene Measures 9.
