Basic properties and hazards
Basic properties Powder or granules of green colour, soluble in water. Nonvolatile. Water and acids can decompose to form toxic and flammable gases. Corrosive. Pollutes water resources.
Explosion and fire Hardly flammable. Upon contact with the flame, forms toxic gases (cyan, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, fluorine compounds, etc.)
The risk to humans May lead to death (at intake)!
The chemical is harmful if inhaled and swallowed (mouth, nose and throat burning, metallic taste, nausea, vomiting, general weakness; in severe cases of poisoning — gasp, fainting, seizures), if in contact with skin (redness, dryness, itching) and if in contact with the eyes (pain and tears). Possible chemical burns.
In case of long-term effect on the human body in concentration exceeding the limits the agent can have a general toxic effect causing the respiratory system, gastrointestinal tract and skin diseases. In case of damaged skin there is a possibility of dermatitis, lesion of the eyes might cause conjunctivitis. There is no evidence of sensibilization.
Toxic properties are due to the presence of soluble trivalent chromium and similar in action hromammoniya sulfate (alum hromammiachnyh by Cr3+).
Individual protection means For chemical investigation and operations manager — RC-3 (for 20 minutes). For emergency responders — insulating protective clothing FIR 5 in a kit with an insulating mask IP-4M.
