3. Hazards Identification

Inhalation: Causes irritation to the respiratory tract. Symptoms may include sore throat, shortness of breath, inflammation of nasal passages, coughing, and wheezing. May cause lung edema, a medical emergency. Any exposure may cause an allergic reaction. Asthma-like symptoms and life-threatening shock may result.
Ingestion: Causes severe irritation and possible burns to the mouth and throat. Gastrointestinal disturbances may be expected with nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting.
Skin Contact: Causes severe irritation or burns. Symptoms include redness, itching and pain. May cause allergic skin reactions.
Eye Contact: Can cause severe irritation or burns with eye damage.
Chronic Exposure: No information found.
Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: Persons with impaired respiratory function may be more susceptible to the effects of the substance.


4. First Aid Measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give large quantities of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention immediately. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.


5. Fire Fighting Measures

Fire: Not combustible, but substance is a strong oxidizer and its heat of reaction with reducing agents or combustibles may cause ignition. Heating or contact with water releases oxygen which may intensify combustion in an existing fire.
Explosion: An explosion hazard when mixed with finely powdered organic matter, metal powder, or reducing agents. Strong oxidants may explode when shocked, or if exposed to heat, flame, or friction. Also may act as initiation source for dust or vapor explosions.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire. Do not use water.
Special Information: 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. Sealed containers may rupture when heated.


6. Accidental Release Measures

Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate area of leak or spill. Keep unnecessary and unprotected people away from area of spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8


7. Handling and Storage

Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage and moisture. Isolate from any source of heat or ignition. Avoid storage on wood floors. Separate from incompatibles, combustibles, organic or other readily oxidizable materials. Containers of this material may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.


8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits: - ACGIH Threshold Limit Value (TLV):0.1 mg/m3 (TWA), Persulfates, Sodium
Ventilation System: 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, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Please refer to the ACGIH document, Industrial Ventilation, A Manual of Recommended Practices, most recent edition, for details.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): If the exposure limit is exceeded and engineering controls are not feasible, a full facepiece particulate respirator (NIOSH type N100 filters) may be worn for up to 50 times the exposure limit or the maximum use concentration specified by the appropriate regulatory agency or respirator supplier, whichever is lowest. If oil particles (e.g. lubricants, cutting fluids. glycerine, etc.) are present, use a NIOSH type R or P filter. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-facepiece positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, gloves, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.
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.


9. Physical and Chemical Properties

Appearance: White powder.
Odor: Odorless.
Solubility: Appreciable (> 10%)
Specific Gravity: 2.40
pH: 6.0 (1% solution)
% Volatiles by volume @ 21C (70F): 0
Boiling Point: No information found.
Melting Point: 180C (356F) Decomposes.
Vapor Density (Air=1): No information found.
Vapor Pressure (mm Hg): No information found.
Evaporation Rate (BuAc=1): No information found.


10. Stability and Reactivity

Stability: Unstable. Gradually decomposes losing oxygen. Decomposes more rapidly at higher temperatures. Stability decreases in the presence of moisture. Metals other than stainless steel are apt to cause decomposition of persulfate solutions.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Oxides of sulfur and the contained metal. Oxygen is released.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Incompatibilities: Reducing agents, organic material, sodium peroxide, water and powdered metals especially aluminum.
Conditions to Avoid: Moisture, heat, flame, ignition sources, shock, friction, incompatibles.


11. Toxicological Information

   No LD50/LC50 information found relating to normal routes of occupational exposure.
