First-aid measures

INHALATION
Get medical attention if any discomfort continues. Keep the affected person warm and at rest. Get prompt medical attention. In case of persistent throat irritation or coughing: Seek medical attention and bring these instructions. Unlikely route of exposure as the product does not contain volatile substances. Remove victim immediately from source of exposure.

INGESTION
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING! NEVER MAKE AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON VOMIT OR DRINK FLUIDS! Remove victim immediately from source of exposure. Get medical attention immediately! Provide rest, warmth and fresh air.

SKIN CONTACT
Remove contaminated clothing. Wash the skin immediately with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists after washing.

EYE CONTACT
Make sure to remove any contact lenses from the eyes before rinsing. Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention urgently!

NOTES TO THE PHYSICIAN
No recommendation given, but first aid may still be required in case of accidental exposure, inhalation or ingestion of this chemical. If in doubt, GET MEDICAL ATTENTION PROMPTLY!

Fire-fighting measures

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Water spray, dry powder or carbon dioxide.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES
Keep up-wind to avoid fumes. Beware, risk of formation of toxic and corrosive gases. Avoid breathing fire vapours.

UNUSUAL FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARDS
OXIDISING! May ignite other combustible materials. May develop highly toxic or corrosive fumes if heated.

PROTECTIVE MEASURES IN FIRE
Self contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Use protective gloves, goggles and suitable protective clothing. Do not smoke, use open fire or other sources of ignition.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Do not allow ANY environmental contamination.

SPILL CLEAN UP METHODS
Wear necessary protective equipment. Remove sources of ignition. Keep combustibles away from spilled material. Collect in containers and seal securely. Remove containers and flush area with water. Avoid dust formation.

Handling and storage

USAGE PRECAUTIONS
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product. Container must be kept tightly closed.
Do not subject to grinding/shock/friction. WARNING: When subject to intense compression at temperatures above 140 °C Sodium Metaperiodate can undergo violent decomposition to form Sodium Iodate with the release of gaseous oxygen. This is significantly lower than the normal decomposition temperature of 270 °C. Where there is a potential for extreme compression during processing e.g. during milling, tabletting or agitated pan-drying operations the maximum processing temperature should be kept well below 140 °C to minimize the risk of decomposition.

STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
Oxidising material - Keep away from flammable and combustible materials. Store in tightly closed original container in a dry and cool place.
Do not store near heat sources or expose to high temperatures.

STORAGE CLASS
Oxidiser storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

PROCESS CONDITIONS
Provide eyewash station.

ENGINEERING MEASURES
Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation.

RESPIRATORY EQUIPMENT
No specific recommendation made, but respiratory protection may still be required under exceptional circumstances when excessive air contamination exists.

HAND PROTECTION
Use protective gloves.

EYE PROTECTION
Wear approved safety goggles.

OTHER PROTECTION
Wear appropriate clothing to prevent any possibility of liquid contact and repeated or prolonged vapour contact.

HYGIENE MEASURES
DO NOT SMOKE IN WORK AREA! Wash hands at the end of each work shift and before eating, smoking and using the toilet. Promptly remove any clothing that becomes contaminated. Wash promptly with soap & water if skin becomes contaminated. Use appropriate skin cream to prevent drying of skin. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

SKIN PROTECTION
Wear apron or protective clothing in case of contact.

Stability and reactivity

STABILITY
Stable under normal temperature conditions. WARNING: When subject to intense compression at temperatures above 140 °C Sodium Metaperiodate can undergo violent decomposition to form Sodium Iodate with the release of gaseous oxygen. This is significantly lower than the normal decomposition temperature of 270 °C. Where there is a potential for extreme compression during processing e.g. during milling, tabletting or agitated pan-drying operations the maximum processing temperature should be kept well below 140 °C to minimize the risk of decomposition.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID
Avoid contact with acids. Generates toxic gas in contact with acid. Strong oxidiser - avoid contact with reducing agents. Avoid exposure to high temperatures or direct sunlight. Protect against physical damage and/or friction.

HAZARDOUS POLYMERISATION
Will not polymerise.

POLYMERISATION DESCRIPTION
Not relevant

MATERIALS TO AVOID
Flammable/combustible material. Strong acids. Strong reducing agents. Powdered metal.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS
Iodine
