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.

5.4 Further Information

No data available.

SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1 Personal Precautions

Wear appropriate protective equipment as specified in Section 8.

6.2 Environmental Precautions

Prevent discharge into the environment. Dike spills and stop leakage where practical. Do not allow material to enter drains.

6.3 Methods and Materials for Containment and Cleaning Up

Contain and clean up spill immediately, prevent from entering floor drains. Contain liquids using absorbents. Shovel all spill materials into disposal drum. Scrub spill area with detergent, flush with copious amounts of water.

6.4 References to Other Sections

For disposal information see Section 13. For protective clothing and equipment see Section 8.

SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE

SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS

8.1 Control Parameters

Component: Sodium/Potassium Phosphate Buffer

ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV):

10 mg/m3 total dust

OSHA Permissable Exposure Limit (PEL):

15 mg/m3 total dust

Component: Proprietary Electrolyte

ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV):

none established

OSHA Permissable Exposure Limit (PEL):

None established

8.2 Exposure Controls

Engineering Controls

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.

Respiratory Protection

For conditions of use where exposure to the dust or mist is apparent, a full-face dust/mist respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.

Eye Protection

Use chemical safety goggles and/or a full face shield where splashing is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.

Skin Protection

Wear protective gloves and clean body covering clothing.

Potential Health Effects

Inhalation

Sodium/Potassium Phosphate Buffer

Not expected to be a health hazard by inhalation.

Proprietary Electrolyte

No data

Ingestion

Sodium/Potassium Phosphate Buffer

Phosphates are slowly and incompletely absorbed when ingested, and seldom result in systematic effects. Some adverse health effects have occurred. The toxicity of phosphates is because of their ability to sequester calcium. Acute potassium intoxication by mouth is rare because large single doses usually induce vomiting and because in the absence of pre-existing kidney damage, potassium is rapidly excreted. Potassium poisoning can result in heart effects.
