Section 3 - Hazards
Appearance: bright red. Moisture sensitive. Warning! Air
sensitive. Harmful if swallowed. Causes eye and skin irritation. Causes
digestive and respiratory tract irritation. May cause adverse reproductive
effects based upon animal studies. May cause allergic skin reaction.
Target Organs: Respiratory system, eyes, skin.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation. May cause skin sensitization,
an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. Causes gastrointestinal
irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Causes respiratory tract irritation.
Chronic: May cause
reproductive and fetal effects.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water
for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get
medical aid immediately.
Skin: Get medical aid. Immediately
flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing
contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4
cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Remove from
exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial
respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically.
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by
thermal decomposition or combustion. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can
spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Extinguishing Media: Substance is noncombustible; use agent
most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire. Use water spray, dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Flash Point: Not applicable.
Autoignition Temperature: Not applicable.
Upper: Not available.

Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and
place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Provide ventilation.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands
before eating. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with
adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid ingestion and
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place. Keep
container closed when not in use. Storage under a nitrogen blanket has been
recommended. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep
airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
