5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flammability of the Product: The product is not flammable.
At fire temperatures ammonium chloride begins to corrode metals and may dissociate into ammonia and hydrogen chloride. Mixtures of about 16% to 25% (by volume) ammonia gas in air are flammable.
Auto-Ignition Temperature: NA.
Flash Points: NA.
Flammable Limits: NA.
Products of Combustion: It emits toxic oxides of carbon and oxides of nitrogen when heated to decomposition.
Fire: The product is not flammable.
Explosion: Slightly explosive in presence of heat.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide. Use means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures or when moistened under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Ensure adequate ventilation. Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements.
Large Spill: Do not let the product enter drains. Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow evacuating through the sanitary system.
US Regulations (CERCLA) require reporting spills and releases to soil, water and air in excess of reportable quantities. The toll free number for the US Coast Guard National Response Center is (800) 424-8802.
7. Handling and Storage
Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. If you feel unwell, seek medical attention.
Keep in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage or contact with oxidizing material and combustible substances.
Zinc Chloride is a Toxic Chemical under Section 313 of Title III/SARA, and 40 CFR Part 372.
Ammonium Salts Generate Ammonia in Water. For SARA 313 Requirements, 10% of the Total ammonia present in aqueous ammonia solutions is reportable.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits:
---- For Ammonium Chloride:
ACGIH: 10 mg/m3 TWA (fume)
20 mg/m3 STEL (fume)
OSHA: 10 mg/m3 TWA
20 mg/m3 STEL
NIOSH: 10 mg/m3 TWA (fume)
20 mg/m3 STEL (fume)
---- For Zinc Chloride:
ACGIH: 1 mg/m3 TWA (fume)
2 mg/m3 STEL (fume)
OSHA: 1 mg/m3 TWA (fume)
2 mg/m3 STEL (fume)
NIOSH: 1 mg/m3 TWA (fume)
2 mg/m3 STEL (fume)
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
