In case of ingestion, endoscopy of the oesophagus must be considered. Avoid washing out the stomach. The patient must be functionally cured according to symptoms. 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES Flammability Conditions Not considered to be a fire hazard. Extinguishing Media In case of fire, appropriate extinguishing media include Powder extinguishant, carbon dioxide, water, general foam. Use minute water sprinkle, fog or regular foam in case of a big fire. After a fire extinguished, cool the containers exposed to flames by spraying with water for an extended period. Use large amount of water in mist type (Do not spray water directly on the material). Fire and Explosion Hazard Contact with combustible materials can cause explosions. Hazchem Code: 2X Hazardous Products of Combustion Thermal decomposition may produce toxic or / and corrosive fumes of potassium oxide. Personal Protective Equipment Fire fighters should wear a positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective firefighting clothing (includes firefighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots and gloves) or chemical splash suit. Clear fire area of all non-emergency personnel. Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas. Eliminate ignition sources. Move fire exposed containers from fire area if it can be done without risk. Do NOT allow firefighting water to reach waterways, drains or sewers. Store firefighting water for treatment. Hazchem Code 2R No other Data Available 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES General Response Procedure Emergency procedures, Evacuate the danger area or to consult an expert. Approach from upwind. Isolate the area. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus in confined spaces, in cases where the oxygen level is depleted, or in case of significant emissions. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Keep away from incompatible products. Clean Up Procedures Soak up spilled product using absorbent non-combustible material such as sand or soil. Avoid using sawdust or cellulose. When saturated collect material, transfer to suitable, labelled, dry chemical-waste containers and dispose of promptly as hazardous waste. Isolate the container from contaminated area, mark and remove it to safe area. Neutralize the floor surface with acid materials (weak hydrochloric acid, weak sulfuric acid, etc.) after diluting it with large amount of water. Soil exposure: Dig a hollow in the ground where it spilt. Build a bank using earth, sand bags, or blowing agents such as polyurethane or concrete in order to stop it flowing and to keep it in the bank. Adsorb the liquid using slack lime, soda, ashes, cement powder. Use a weak acid to neutralize. Spill in the atmosphere: Reduce vapour occurrence by spraying water as a spray. Collect the spilt substance to dispose of it as potential hazardous waste. Underwater spill : Neutralize the material with a weak acid. 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling Warning - To avoid a violent reaction ALWAYS add material to water and NEVER water to material. Ensure an eye bath and safety shower are available and ready for use. Avoid contact with heat, open flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Observe good personal hygiene practices and recommended procedures. Wash thoroughly after handling. In case making the diluted solution of potassium hydroxide, be sure to put potassium hydroxide into water (Absolutely do not put water into potassium hydroxide). Avoid bodily contact and persons handling potassium hydroxide must always wear protective goggles, protective suit and protective gloves as listed in section 8. Upon being contacted with this material, it destroys the cell of the skin, so absolutely do not work with bare hands. Remove contact lenses before starting any work. Do not smoke or have food while working. Do not inhale product vapours. Avoid prolonged or repeated exposure. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Storage Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Inspect regularly for deficiencies such as damage or leaks. Protect against physical damage. Store away from incompatible materials as listed in section 10. Storage container should be airtight. Keep it in isolation from an acid, organics (woollen fabrics, leather, etc.), metal, NITROMETHAN, and CHLORINATED SOLVENT. Attention must be paid so that a potassium hydroxide solution may not be frozen in winter. This product has a UN classification of 1814 and a Dangerous Goods Class 8 (Corrosive) according to The Australian Code for the Transport of Dangerous Goods By Road and Rail. Container polyethylene, Do not store in steel, copper, tin, aluminium or its alloy containers. 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION General The following exposure standard has been established by The Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC); Potassium Hydroxide [Caustic Potash] CAS 1310-58-3: TWA = 2mg/m3 Peak Limitation. NOTE: The exposure value at the TWA is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5 day working week. Peak limitation is a ceiling concentration which should not be exceeded over a measurement period which should be as short as possible but not exceeding 15 minutes. These exposure standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards. All atmospheric contamination should be kept to as low a level as is workable. These exposure standards should not be used as fine dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals. They are not a measure of relative toxicity. Exposure Limits No Data Available Biological Limits No information available on biological limit values for this product. Engineering Measures A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. 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. Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded. Personal Protection Equipment RESPIRATOR: Self-contained breathing apparatus with full face-piece operated in the pressure demand. For emergencies or instances where exposure levels are not known, use a full face piece positive pressure, air supplied respirator. Warning! Air -purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen deficient atmospheres (AS1715/1716). EYES: Chemical splash goggles and/or face shield must be worn when possibility exist for eye contact due to splashing or spraying liquid or vapour (AS1336/1337). HANDS: Wear PVC, rubber or neoprene gloves. Glove thickness has to be of minimum 1.2 mm. Do not use leather gloves (AS2161). CLOTHING: Wear impervious protective clothing including boots, lab coat, apron or coveralls and safety footwear (AS3765/2210). Work Hygienic Practices Always wash hands before smoking, eating, drinking or using the toilet. Wash contaminated clothing and other protective equipment before storage or re-use. 9.
