|SECTION 3 – COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS |
|HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS||Urea Ammonium Nitrate|
|SECTION 4 – FIRST AID MEASURES|
|EYE CONTACT||Rinse cautiously with gently flowing water for at 15 minutes or until irritation subsides.. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.|
|SKIN CONTACT||Rinse thoroughly and immediately with plenty of water for at least 5 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and footwear carefully and wash before reuse. If irritation persists or develops, get medical attention.|
|INHALATION||Avoid inhalation of vapor, spray, or mist. If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Be observant over next 24 hours as symptoms may be delayed. Inhalation of decomposition products may require medical observation for up to 72 hours. Get medical attention if not feeling well.|
|INGESTION||Wash out mouth with water. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Loosen tight clothing. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Get immediate medical attention if large quantity known or suspected to have been ingested.|
|Most Important Symptoms, both acute & delayed.||Eye, skin and ingestion: No known significant effects or critical hazards.|
Inhalation: Exposure to decomposition products may cause a health hazard. Serious effects may be delayed following exposure.
|Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed.||Treat symptomatically. Contact poison treatment specialist immediately if large quantities have been ingested or inhaled. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.|
|SECTION 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES|
|FLAMMABLE||Product will not burn or support combustion.|
|MEANS OF EXTINCTION||Use extinguishing methods appropriate for the surrounding fire. Do not use a water jet as this may spread the fire. Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.|
|FLASHPOINT & METHOD||NAP|
|AUTO IGNITION TEMPERATURE||NAP|
|UPPER FLAMMABLE LIMIT||NAP|
|SENSITIVITY TO IMPACT||Not available.|
|LOWER FLAMMABILITY LIMIT||NAP|
|SENSITIVITY TO STATIC DISCHARGE||Not available.|
|HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS||Toxic, irritating and/ or corrosive gases may be released during a fire – Ammonia and Nitrogen Oxides.|
Product is not explosive.
|SECTION 6 – ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES|
|LEAK & SPILL PROCEDURES||Wear personal protective equipment outlined in SECTION 8. Avoid dispersal of spilled material, runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).|
Small spills: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spills: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements, or confined areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows. Contain and collect spillage with noncombustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see Section 13). Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Notify local health and wildlife officials. Notify operators of nearby water intakes. Note: see Section 1 for emergency contact information and Section 13 for waste disposal.
|SECTION 7 – HANDLING AND STORAGE|
|HANDLING||Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. Do not breathe mist/spray. Wear protective gloves, and eye protection – See SECTION 8|
Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking and when leaving work.
Use thermally protected pumps (max 66C or 150F). DO NOT allow any pump handling the product to run dry or over-heat e.g. due to blockage or closed valve in the associated lines, resulting in pumping against a dead-end. Under such conditions if over-heating occurs this may cause vaporization and possible decomposition of the product. This can create pressure build-up in the pump and, if unchecked, lead to an explosion. Ensure that the pump is used correctly according to the manufacturer’s instructions at all times when pumping the product.
|STORAGE||Store tightly closed in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from food, feed storage and direct sunlight. Do not allow product to dry out. Corrosive sludge may form upon prolonged storage.|
|INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS||Copper alloys.|
|SECTION 8 – EXPOSURE CONTROL / PERSONAL PROTECTION|
|ENGINEERING CONTROLS||Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control worker exposure to airborne contaminants. A washing facility or water for eye and skin cleaning purposes should be present. Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.|
|PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT|
|Skin||Wear neoprene gloves. CHANGE GLOVES FREQUENTLY. Chemical resistant coveralls when handling or applying this product are recommended|
|Eyes||Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts. Chemical splash goggles or better.|
|Respirator||Wear air supplied respirator where airborne concentrations exceed recommended exposure limits or are unknown.|
