Emergency Overview


SAF-T-DATA(tm) Ratings (Provided here for your convenience)
Health Rating: 2 - Moderate (Life)
Flammability Rating: 0 - None
Reactivity Rating: 2 - Moderate
Contact Rating: 2 - Moderate
Storage Color Code: Green (General Storage)

Potential Health Effects
May cause irritation to the respiratory tract. Symptoms may include coughing and shortness of breath.
Large oral doses may cause irritation to the gastrointestinal tract.
Skin Contact:
May cause irritation with redness and pain.
Eye Contact:
May cause irritation, redness and pain.
Chronic Exposure:
Chronic ingestion of iodides may produce "iodism," which may be manifested by skin rash, running nose, headache and irritation of mucous membranes. Weakness, anemia, loss of weight, and general depression may also occur.
Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions:
No information found.
4. First Aid Measures Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. Get medical attention for any breathing difficulty.
Induce vomiting immediately as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Skin Contact:
Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention if irritation develops.
Eye Contact:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting upper and lower eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
5. Fire Fighting Measures Fire:
Not considered to be a fire hazard.
Not considered to be an explosion hazard.
Fire Extinguishing Media:
Use any means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
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.
6. Accidental Release Measures Ventilate area of leak or spill. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Spills: Sweep up and containerize for reclamation or disposal. Vacuuming or wet sweeping may be used to avoid dust dispersal 7. Handling and Storage Keep in a tightly closed light-resistant container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage. Isolate from incompatible substances. Prolonged storage is not recommended because of possible degradation problems, including yellowing of the potassium iodide product. Always inspect the potassium iodide's color and overall quality before use. 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 (TWA) for Iodides:
0.01 ppm for inhalable fraction and vapor.
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):
For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator (NIOSH type N95 or better filters) may be worn. 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-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator. WARNING: Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres.
Skin Protection:
Gloves and lab coat, apron or coveralls. Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
