First-aid measures

Inhalation: Shut off source of exposure, if possible. Bring the victim to the fresh air, keep at rest (avoid even walking) if necessary, seek medical attention.
Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing, wash contaminated skin sufficiently with water, cover sterilely or provide medical help (according to the extent and seriousness).
Eye contact: Flush immediately with large amounts of fresh water at least 10 minutes to get the water under the eyelids, seek medical attention.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with potable water and leave victim to drink 0,5 l of cool potable water. Do not induce vomiting, seek medical aid.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Causes skin irritation and serious eye irritation. May cause allergy or asthma symptoms or breathing difficulties if inhaled. May cause an allergic skin reaction. May cause respiratory irritation.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable: adapt the extinguisher to the materials burning in the surroundings.
Unsuitable: if water is used there is a risk of release into sewerage and environment.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: During fire, toxic and corrosive products may be released due to high temperatures. It disintegrates at temperature above 140°C, releases toxic chlorine during fire. Prevent raising dust.
Advice for fire fighters: In case fires wear full protective clothing, eyes protection and suitable respiratory system protection. In case of release to the sewers act upon emergency plans (capturing and/or diluting with water). Contact with combustible material may cause fire.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- For non-emergency personnel: Wear suitable personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not use the preparation in a closed area and near flammable materials provide sufficient ventilation or exhaustion of the area.
- For emergency responders: Wear suitable personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not use the substance in the closed area, provide sufficient ventilation or exhaustion of the area. Avoid release to the environment, contact to water and dampness.

- Environmental precautions: Avoid contamination of water and soil and contact with flammable materials (do not use sawdust or cellulose for capturing spillage). In case of accidental discharge of large amount of the concentrated chloramin to the surface water, ground water or waste water, notify local authorities according to local regulations (e.g. fire brigade, police, rescue police, water course administrator). Prevent effect of acids and acidic substances. Prevent excessive contamination of the environment. Store and keep in tightly closed containers, prevent release into the environment.
- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: The spilled preparation shall be absorbed into an appropriate absorption material (e.g. universal sorbents, sorbents for capturing aggressive substances) and placed into a closable container, prevent release into the sewerage and water streams, or provide sufficient dilution with water. In case of release into sewerage or water stream, follow the local terms and conditions and instructions of emergency plans.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: General safety regulations for work shall be absorbed when manipulating with the preparation, use the prescribed personal protective equipment. Prevent raising dust during manipulation. Further, secure the disinfective preparation from potential manipulation by unauthorized persons and provide sufficient ventilation of the working areas, prevent the effect of acids and acidic substances. Do not eat, drink and smoke when manipulating with the preparation. Close the packaging thoroughly after opening.
- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep in original, well closed containers. Store in dry areas protected from weather influence and secure from release into the environment and access of unauthorized persons. Do not store in direct sunlight and together with flammable materials. Store separate from food, drinks, feedstuff and from acids and acidic cleaning and washing preparations. Storage temperature: from -20 to +30°C.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Eye/face protection: Protective goggles or face shield.
Skin protection: Work clothing, working boots (closed)
Hand protection: Wear rubber (latex) gloves.
Respiratory protection: Provide sufficient ventilation of the area or use protection of respiratory system with filter against dust or aerosols (for concentrated solution).

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable under normal condition of use.
Chemical stability: Sodium N-Chlorobenzenesulphonamide solutions remain stable when stored protected from sunlight at a coolish place.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Reaction with concentrated as well as diluted acids and acidic substances, reducing agents, powder metals, ammonium and ammonium ions the possibility of a hazardous chemical reaction.
Conditions to avoid: Increased temperature, effect of direct sunlight, effects of weather, humidity, water precipitation and especially effects of acids and acidic substances and solutions.
Incompatible materials: Concentrated as well as diluted acids and acidic substances, reducing agents (e.g. hydrides), powder metals, ammonium and ammonium ions.
Hazardous decomposition products: Chlorine, hydrogen chloride, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides.

Disposal considerations

Recommended Methods of Substance and Contaminated Packaging Disposal:
It is dangerous waste. Personal protective equipment should be used and provisions to be applied when handling and collecting wastes regarding protection of waste spill into environment. Waste hand over to specialized competent company, if need be hand over within the framework of dangerous waste collection in your community. Contaminated packaging hand over to specialised company as dangerous waste or can be recycled after thorough cleaning.
Physical/chemical properties that may affect waste treatment options: Avoid contact with concentrated and diluted acids, acidic substances, reducing agents, ammonium, powder metals and ammonium ions.
Sewage disposal shall be discouraged: Waste should not be disposed of by release to sewers.
