6.    HEALTH HAZARD DATA:
EYE:    May cause severe corneal injury, which may result in permanent impairment of vision, even blindness. Vapors may irritate eyes.
SKIN CONTACT: May cause severe injury to skin following prolonged or repeated contact, and may cause skin sensitization or other allergic reactions.
SKIN ABSORPTION: A single prolonged exposure may result in the material being absorbed in harmful amounts. The LD50 for skin absorption in rabbits is 880 mg/kg.
INGESTON: Single dose oral toxicity is low. The oral LD50 for female rats is>1000mg/kg. Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation or ulceration. Ingestion may cause burns of mouth and throat.
INHALATION: May cause respiratory sensitization or asthma in susceptible individuals. Excessive exposure may cause irritation to respiratory tract.
SYSTEMIC AND OTHER EFFECTS: Results of in vitro ("test tube") mutagen city test have been negative.

7.    FIRST AID:
EYES: Irrigation of the eye immediately with water for at least 30 minutes is required. Promptly seek medical attention. SKIN: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing, preferably under a safety shower. Seek medical attention immediately. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact to skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting. Give large amounts of water or milk if available and transport to medical facility. INHALATION: Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult medical personnel.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: Corrosive. May cause stricture. If lavage is performed, suggest endotracheal and /or esophagoscopic control. If burn is present, treat as any thermal burn, after decontamination. No specific antidote. Supportive care. Treatment based on judgment of the physician in response to reactions of the patient.
8.   HANDLING PRECAUTIONS:
EXPOSURE GUIDELINE: None established.
VENTILATION: Control airborne concentration below the exposure guideline. Use only with adequate ventilation. Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the exposure guideline. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use an approved air-purifying respirator.
SKIN PROTECTION: Use protective clothing impervious to this material. Selection of specific items such as gloves, boots, apron, or full-body sit will depend on operation. Safety shower should be located in immediate work area. Remove contaminated clothing immediately, wash skin area with soap and water, and clothing before reuse. Contaminate leather items, such as shoes, belts and watchbands, should be removed and destroyed.
EYE PROTECTION: Use chemical goggles. If vapor causes eye irritation, use full-face respirator. Eye wash fountain should be located in immediate work area.
