Chemical Identifiers

The Chemical Identifier fields include common identification numbers, the NFPA diamond, U.S. Department of Transportation hazard labels, and a general description of the chemical. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
CAS Number UN/NA Number DOT Hazard Label USCG CHRIS Code
none none data unavailable
NFPA 704
data unavailable
NIOSH Pocket Guide International Chem Safety Card
none none
General Description
A liquid. (USCG, 1999)


The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble. May generate large amounts of heat when dissolved in water.
Fire Hazard
Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Contain toxic and corrosive fumes of sodium monoxide (Na 2 O).

Behavior in Fire: Noncombustible; however, if heated to dryness, resulting soilds may ignite spontaneously in air to yield toxic and corrosive fumes containing sodium monoxide (Na 2 O). (USCG, 1999)
Health Hazard
Inhalation of mist may be harmful. Contact causes burns to eyes and skin. Caustic; harmful if swallowed. (USCG, 1999)
Reactivity Profile
Incompatible with copper, copper alloys, zinc or aluminum (USCG, 1999). Combustion products contain toxic and corrosive fumes of sodium monoxide (Na2O).
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
Potentially Incompatible Absorbents

No information available.

Response Recommendations

The Response Recommendation fields include isolation and evacuation distances, as well as recommendations for firefighting, non-fire response, protective clothing, and first aid. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Isolation and Evacuation
No information available.
Fire Extinguishing Agents Not to Be Used: Do not use dry chemicals containing ammonium salts or urea. These compounds may react with the caustic solution to generate toxic ammonia gas.

Fire Extinguishing Agents: Small fires: dry chemical (no ammonium salts or urea), carbon dioxide, water spray or foam; large fires: water spray, fog or foam. (Spilled material may ignite if allowed to dry.) (USCG, 1999)
Non-Fire Response
No information available.
Protective Clothing
Wear self-contained (positive pressure if available) breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. (USCG, 1999)
DuPont Tychem® Suit Fabrics
No information available.
First Aid
INHALATION: Move victim to fresh air. If breathing has stopped, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

EYES OR SKIN: Flush with running water for at least 15 min.; hold eyelids open if necessary. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at the site.

INGESTION: If victim is conscious, have victim drink water or milk. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If victim is unconscious or having convulsions, do nothing except keep victim warm. (USCG, 1999)
