|General Product Information|
|Caustic attacks body tissue upon contact. The degree of injury depends upon the extent and duration of contact, temperature and concentration of the caustic.|
Its corrosive action on tissues causes burns and frequently deep ulcerations.
Its contact with the eyes rapidly causes severe damage.
Caustic solution is detectable by a slippery feeling like soapy water.
Toxic limits are TLV = 2 mg. / cubic meter of air.
Shelf Life: Long life if protected from air & contamination.
|Product Handling and Safety Instruction|
|Immediately remove all contaminated clothing and equipment effected by the Caustic, Flush the exposed area thoroughly with a lot of water, followed by washing with a solution of 5 % ammonium chloride in water. If caustic contacts the eyes, they should be irrigated immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.Hold the eyelids opened during irrigation. The eyes should be then washed with a dilute boric acid solution and wash the eye with water for an additional 15 minutes. A physician should be seen immediately after the eye is thoroughly washed.For personal protection, use face shields, gloves, gum-boots and protective suites. Use safety shower and wash with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Caustic soda (liquid) is transported in Mild Steel tanks.|
