3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

 

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW:

 

White or off-white crystals. May cause skin and eye irritation. May be harmful if swallowed.

Potential Health Effects:

Eye Contact:

No adverse effects expected but dust may cause mechanical irritation.

Skin Contact:

No adverse effects expected but may cause minor skin irritation.

Inhalation:

Inhalation of dust may cause mild irritation to the mucous membranes

Ingestion:

Since magnesium salts are slowly absorbed, abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhea may be the only symptoms. However, if elimination is blocked by bowel blockage or other reasons, CNS depression, lack of reflexes, hypocalcemia (deficiency of calcium in the blood) may occur.

Aggravation of

Pre-existing Conditions:

No information found.

 

4. FIRST AID MEASURES

 

Inhalation:

Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention for any breathing difficulty.

Ingestion:

Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, have person drink plenty of water. Seek medical attention or contact poison control center immediately.

Skin Contact:

Remove any contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.

Eye Contact:

Wash thoroughly with running water. Get medical advice if irritation develops.

 

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 

Fire:

Not considered to be a fire hazard.

Explosion:

Not considered to be an explosion hazard. At room temperature the addition of magnesium chloride to furan-2-peroxycarboxylic acid, will cause the acid to explode.

Extinguishing Media:

No special requirements. Use normal fire fighting equipment and practices.

Special Information:

In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode.

 

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 

Small Spill:

Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements.

Large Spill:

Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow to evacuate through the sanitary system.

 

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 

Precautions:

Store in a dry area. Keep containers closed when not in use.

Storage:

No specific storage is required. Use shelves or cabinets sturdy enough to bear the weight of the chemicals. Be sure that it is not necessary to strain to reach materials, and that shelves are not overloaded.

 

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 

Engineering Controls:  As necessary to avoid inhalation and contact.

Personal Protection:

Safety glasses. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent. Gloves.

Eye Protection:

Safety eyewear to protect against unexpected splashes.
