Eyes:Causes severe eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation.
Ingestion: Causes gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Chronic:No information found.
First Aid Measures
Eyes:Remove contact lenses. Flush with water or saline for 15 minutes.Get medical aid.
Skin:Wash skin with soap and water for 15 minutes. Get medical aid if symptoms persist.
Inhalation:Immediately remove from exposure to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give 1-2 glasses of water. Get medical aid.
Fire Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
General Information: Oxidizer. Greatly increases the burning rate of combustible materials. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
Accidental Release Measures Spill Procedure: Sweep into a plastic container.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION/ PROPERTIES

pH: No information found.
% Volatiles by volume @ 21C (70F): 0
Boiling Point: Not applicable.
Melting Point: 120C (248F)
Vapor Density (Air=1): No information found.
Vapor Pressure (mm Hg): No information found.
Evaporation Rate (BuAc=1): No information found.
Handling and Storage Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not ingest or inhale. Do not expose container to heat or flame.
Storage: Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area, away from incompatible substances.
Exposure Controls Routes of entry: Eyes, ingestion, inhalation, and skin.
Ventilation: Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below exposure limits.
Personal Protection: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles. Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Use a NIOSH approved respirator when necessary.
Stability and Reactivity Stability:
Substance is shock sensitive and thermally unstable. Decomposes when heated.
Conditions to avoid:Temperatures over 40C, ignition sources, incompatible materials, contact with water, metals, combustible materials, organic materials, and reducing agents.
Incompatibilities:Can be explosive when mixed with aluminum powder or sodium peroxide. Catalytic decomposition may occur in the presence of metals such as lead,silver,copper,magnesium,zinc,cadmium, nickel,iron,and cobalt.
Polymerization: Will not occur.
Decomposition: Nitrogen oxides, oxides of sulfur, ammonia and/or derivatives, nitrogen.
Accidental Release Measures
Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Spills: Clean up spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Use non-sparking tools and equipment. Reduce airborne dust and prevent scattering by moistening with water. Pick up spill for recovery or disposal and place in a closed container.
Exposure Controls /Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits:
- ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV):5 mg/m3 (TWA) as persulphate
A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures below the Airborne Exposure Limits. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved):
For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids, glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
No information found.
Environmental Fate: No information found.
Environmental Toxicity: No information found.
Whatever cannot be saved for recovery or recycling should be managed in an appropriate and approved waste disposal facility. Processing, use or contamination of this product may change the waste management options. State and local disposal regulations may differ from federal disposal regulations. Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with federal, state and local requirements.
