Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:YES
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:DILUTED SULFURIC ACID CAUSES MILDER
RESULTS THAN FULL STRENGTH ACID.LONG TERM EXPOSURES MAY CAUSE ALL
HAZARDS TO SOME DEGREE.CHRONIC EXPOSURES ARE KNOWN TO CAUSE EROSION
OF TEETH,INFLAMMATION OF NOSE, THROAT AND BRONCHIAL TUBES.
Explanation of Carcinogenicity:NO DATA WAS FOUND TO INDICATE SULFURIC
ACID RELATED TUMORS OR CANCERS
Effects of Overexposure:CONCENTRATIONS AS LOW AS 5MG/M3 ARE
OBJECTIONABLE CAUSING COUGH,INCREASED RESPIRATORY RATE AND
IMPAIRMENT OF VENTILATORY CAPACITY.DROPLETS OR MIST ON SKIN CAUSES
AN UNCOMFORTABLE STINGING,BURNING SENS ATION.EYE IRRITATION
FREQUENTLY OCCURS.TEETH MAY BECOME DISCOLORED.
Medical Cond Aggravated by Exposure:EXPOSURE TO MIST MAY CAUSE LUNG
DAMAGE AND AGGRAVATE PULMONARY CONDITIONS.

First Aid

First Aid:FLUSH EYES IMMEDIATELY WITH LARGE AMOUNTS OF COOL WATER.IF
CONTACTS ARE WORN REMOVE THEM THEN CONTINUE FLUSHING.FOR SKIN
CONTACT-FLUSH WITH LARGE AMOUNTS OF WATER.REMOVE CONTAMINATED
CLOTHING INCLUDIN G SHOES.IF INHALED REMOVE TO FRESH AIR
IMMEDIATELY.INGESTION-IF VICTIM IS AWAKE GIVE LOTS OF WATER.DO NOT
INDUCE VOMITING.WASH OUT MOUTH,GARGLE TO WASH THROAT.

Fire Fighting

Flash Point:NOT COMBUSTIBLE
Extinguishing Media:DRY,CHEMICAL,CARBON DIOXIDE,WATER FOG, WATER
Fire Fighting Procedures:SULFURIC ACID FUME,SULFUR DIOXIDE GAS OR
CARBON MONOXIDE MAY BE RELEASED WHEN ACID DECOMPOSES.WATER APPLIED
TO SULFURIC ACID GENERATE HEAT AND CAUSES SPATTERING
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:REACTS WITH MOST METALS TO YIELD
EXPLOSIVE/FLAMMABLE HYDROGEN GAS,REACTIONS IS INCREASED WHEN ACID
IS DILUTED AS IN ELECTOLYTE.

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:IF POSSIBLE STOP FLOW OF MATERIAL.UNLESS AREA
IS WELL VENTILATED.DO NOT PERMIT ANYONE WITHOUT RESPIRATORY
PROTECTION.FOR LARGE SPILLS WEAR ACID RESISTANT
CLOTHING.CONTAIN/ABSORB SMALL SPILLS WITH VERM ICULITE,DRY SAND OR
SIMILAR MATERIALS.
Neutralizing Agent:LIME,SODA ASH,SODIUM BICARBONATE,ETC.

Handling

COOL,DRY AND PROTECTED FROM SEVERE WEATHER.AVOID SPILLS,LEAKS OR
DAMAGE TO CONTAINERS.
Other Precautions:KEEP AWAY FROM FIRE,SPARKS AND HEAT. STORE AND HANDLE
ONLY IN AREAS WITH UNLIMITED WATER SUPPLY.NEVER USE AIR-PRESSURE TO
FORCE MATERIAL OUT OF CONTAINER.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:NOT REQUIRED UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS WHEN
CONCENTRATIONS OF SULFURIC ACID IN AN AREA ARE KNOWN TO EXCEED
PEL.USE NIOSH-APPROVED,FITTED FULL FACE RESPIRATOR.
Ventilation:USE IN WELL VENTILATED AREA WITH NO CROSS DRAFTS.
Protective Gloves:ACIDS RESISTANT RUBBER OR PLASTIC
Eye Protection:APPROVED SAFETY GLASSES WITH SIDE SHIELD
Other Protective Equipment:ACID RESISTANT GOGGLES AND ACID RESISTANT
APRON
Work Hygienic Practices:CONTAMINATED CLOTHING MUST NOT BE REWORN.PLACE
IN CLOSED CONTAINERS FOR STORAGE
Supplemental Safety and Health
