Section 5. First Aid Measures
Flash Point: Not applicable
Auto-ignition Temperature: Not applicable
Extinguishing Media: Any standard agent may be used. If involved in a fire, flood with water.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: It decomposes at elevated temperatures to produce toxic fumes of ammonia and sulfur oxides. If mixed with strong oxidizers such as ammonium nitrate or potassium salts (nitrite, nitrate or chlorate), a vigorous reaction may occur. Special Fire Fighting Precaution: Since toxic gases may be released violently at high temperatures, firefighters should wear full protective clothing and NIOSH approved, self contained breathing apparatus. Use water to keep fire exposed containers cool. Do not let the product enter drain.
Section 6. Accidental Release Measures
IN CASE OF SPILL OR OTHER RELEASE: Avoid inhalation of dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. (Always wear recommended personal protective equipment). Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Shovel up large spills (dry chemicals) for use or disposal. Sweep up small spills and maximize recovery. Flush residue with water if permitted by applicable disposal regulations. Do not let the product enter drain.
Section 7. Handling and Storage
Normal Handling: (Always wear recommended personal protective equipment). Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Keep containers closed and avoid rough handling. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Follow good personal hygiene and housekeeping practices.
Storage Recommendations: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong oxidizers, such as chlorates, nitrates and nitrites. Avoid Sources of ignition. Direct sunlight.
