3. Hazard Identification Emergency Overview: A clear, mostly odorless solution that can be hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant). Hazardous in case of ingestion . Routes of Entry: Inhalation, Skin Contact/absorption, Eye Contact or Ingestion Symptoms of Exposure: Inhalation: Aerosols and mists from solutions may cause mild to severe irritation of the nose and throat. Overexposure could cause coughing, sneezing, and labored breathing. Skin Contact/absorption: Can cause irritation of the skin. Acid may cause allergic contact dermatitis with repeated contact in sensitive individuals. Prolonged Contact can cause burns. Eye Contact: This solution can cause severe irritation to the eyes, with symptoms that include redness, tearing, and pain. Concentrated solutions may be corrosive to the eyes and cause corneal ulcerations.. Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritation, with symptoms including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
4 . First Aid Measures Skin Wash the affected area with soap and water. If irritation develops, get medical attention. Eyes: Flush with water for a minimum of 15 minutes. If irritation persists seek medical attention. Inhalation: If irritation or other symptoms are experienced, remove victim to fresh air. If symptoms persist get medical attention. Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. DO NOT GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN and give UNCONSCIOUS PERSON. Otherwise rinse mouth with water , Get medical attention immediately
5. Fire Fighting Measures Conditions Of Flammability: Does not burn Means To Extinguish: Not applicable Hazardous Combustion Products: None, does not burn. Flash Point & Method: Not applicable Upper Flammability Limit: Not applicable Lower Flammability Limit: Not applicable Auto-Ignition Temperature: Not applicable Mechanical Impact Sensitivity: Not applicable (water solution) Static Discharge Sensitivity: Not applicable (water solution) Special Remarks on Fire Hazards: Non combustible. Calcium carbide reacts with hydrogen chloride gas with incandescence. Uranium phosphide reacts withhydrochloric acid to release spontaneously flammable phosphine. Rubidium acetylene carbides burns with slightly warm hydrochloric acid. Lithium silicide in contact with hydrogen chloride becomes incandescent. When dilute hydrochloric acid is used, gas spontaneously flammable in air is evolved. Magnesium boride treated with concentrated hydrochloric acid produces spontaneously flammble gas. Cesium acetylene carbide burns hydrogen chloride gas. Cesium carbide ignites in contact with hydrochloric acid unless acid is dilute. Reacts with most metals to produce flammable Hydrodgen gas. (Hydrochloric Acid) Special Remarks on Explosion Hazards: Hydrogen chloride in contact with the following can cause an explosion, ignition on contact, or other violent/vigorous reaction: Acetic anhydride AgClO + CCl4 Alcohols + hydrogen cyanide, Aluminum Aluminum-titanium alloys (with HCl vapor), 2-Amino ethanol, Ammonium hydroxide, Calcium carbide Ca3P2 Chlorine + dinitroanilines (evolves gas), Chlorosulfonic acid Cesium carbide Cesium acetylene carbide, 1,1-Difluoroethylene Ethylene diamine Ethylene imine, Fluorine, HClO4 Hexalithium disilicide H2SO4 Metal acetylides or carbides, Magnesium boride, Mercuric sulfate, Oleum, Potassium permanganate, beta-Propiolactone Propylene oxide Rubidium carbide, Rubidium, acetylene carbide Sodium (with aqueous HCl), Sodium hydroxide Sodium tetraselenium, Sulfonic acid, Tetraselenium tetranitride, U3P4 , Vinyl acetate. Silver perchlorate with carbon tetrachloride in the presence of hydrochloric acid produces trichloromethyl perchlorate which detonates at 40 deg. C
