First-aid measures

- Eye contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Rinse immediately with plenty of water and get medical attention.
- Skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove and wash any contaminated clothing.
- Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air and keep the victim in half-upright position. Get immediate medical attention.
- Ingestion: Rare in industry. Rinse mouth and give plenty of water to drink and immediately refer for medical attention. If the person is unconscious, do not give anything to drink or induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

-Flammability of the product: This product is non combustible
-Products of combustion: When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of cadmium oxide and hydrogen chloride
- Extinguishing media:
Suitable: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Not suitable: None known
- Special exposure hazards: Irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) can form in the event of fire.
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Accidental release measures

-Personal precautions: Wear appropriate chemical protective gloves, boots, and safety goggles. Wear at least a P100 (P3) type particle filter respirator if the airborne concentrations are above the permissible exposure limit. If the airborne concentrations are unknown, wear approved self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Environmental precautions: Contain spilled material, and prevent runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains or sewers.
- Methods for cleaning-up: Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder and then remove to safe place.

Handling and storage

-Handling: Never breathe or ingest dust. Wear suitable respiratory equipment in case of insufficient ventilation. In the event of accidental ingestion or inhalation, contact medical services immediately and forward them this material safety data sheet. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
-Storage: Keep in a tightly sealed container in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from strong oxidizers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls
-Environmental exposure controls: Use only in well ventilated areas. If handling generates dust, fumes, gases, vapor or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.
-Eye protection: Safety glasses
-Skin protection: Lab coat
-Respiratory protection: If there is a risk of exceeding exposure limits, use at least a P100 (P3) filter respirator for toxic particles.
-Hand protection: Natural rubber (latex)

Stability and reactivity

-Conditions to avoid: Keep away from strong oxidizers.
-Materials to avoid: Strong oxidizers, bromine trifluoride and potassium.
-Hazardous decomposition products: A mixture of potassium and cadmium chloride may produce a strong explosion on impact. When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of cadmium oxide and hydrogen chloride

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal:
The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Contain spilled material, and prevent runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains or sewers. Disposal of this product, solutions and any by-products should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste disposal legislation and any regional and local authority requirements.
