Section 3 – Hazards Identification
Appearance: orange solid.
Warning! Harmful if swallowed. May cause eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation.
Target Organs: None.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation. This product contains an anionic dye. Similar dyes have not caused
injury to the cornea or conjunctiva in documented exposure cases with human or rabbit eyes.
Skin: May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. The toxicological properties of this substance have
not been fully investigated.
Chronic: No information found.

Section 4 – First Aid Measures
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower
eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse. Flush skin with
plenty of soap and water.
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 and supportively.

Section 5 – Fire Fighting Measures
General 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: Use extinguishing media most appropriate for the surrounding fire. Use water
spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Flash Point: Not applicable.
Autoignition Temperature: Not applicable.
Explosion Limits, Lower:Not available.
Upper: Not available.
NFPA Rating: (estimated) Health: 2; Flammability: 0; Instability: 0
Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section.
Sweep up or absorb material, then place into a suitable clean, dry, closed container for disposal.
Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.

Section 7 – Handling and Storage
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep container tightly closed. Do
not ingest or inhale.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep
containers tightly closed.

Section 8 – Exposure Controls, Personal Protection
Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
