2. Composition/Information on Ingredients
Ingredient: Calcium Nitrite
CAS No.: 13780-06-8
Percent: 94 - 100% Apart from the assay, it has mainly Calcium Nitrate.
Hazardous: Yes. It is an oxidizer.
Uses: Concrete antifreeze, quick set agent and rust-proofing reinforced steel bar.
3. Hazards Identification
Danger! Strong oxidizer. Contact with other material may cause a fire. Causes eye irritation. May cause skin and respiratory tract irritation. May cause methemoglobinemia.
The primary routes of industrial overexposure for the solution are via inhalation and contact with skin and eyes.
Potential Health Effects
Inhalation: If vapors, mists, or sprays of this product are inhaled, irritation to the nose, throat, and lungs can occur. Symptoms from low level concentration inhalation may include sneezing, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Exposure to higher concentration may result in drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, fall in blood pressure and dizziness. Most symptoms from acute exposure are generally are alleviated when the overexposure ends. Overexposure to high concentrations or prolonged exposure can result in damage to respiratory system tissues, convulsions, methemoglobinemia and cyanosis. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. If this product is swallowed, irritation and burns of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and other tissues of the digestive system will occur immediately upon contact. Symptoms of such over-exposure can include nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe ingestion overexposures can result in convulsion, collapse and coma. Ingestion of this product may damage the oxygen transport system of the blood (methemoglobinemia), causing observable cyanosis of lips, nose, earlobe, euphoria, headache, flushed face. In severe cases of cyanosis, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, fall in blood pressure, increasingly severe headaches, ataxia, shallow respiration, confusion, lethargy, stupor, tachycardia, convulsions, coma or can be fatal. Repeated ingestion of small amounts of this product (as may occur in the event of poor hygiene practices) may lead to a chronic form of methemoglobinemia. Get medical immediate attention.
Skin Contact: Calcium Nitrite solid may cause mild irritation on dry skin; strong solutions or solid in contact with moist skin may cause severe irritation, even burns.
Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention.
Chronic Exposure Overexposure to high concentrations or prolonged exposure can result in damage to respiratory system tissues, convulsions, methemoglobinemia and cyanosis. Get medical attention.
Aggravation of Pre-existing Conditions: No information found.
Carcinogenic Effects: Not available.
Mutagenic Effects: Not available.
Teratogenic Effects: Not available.

4. First Aid Measures
Always seek medical attention after first aid measures are provided.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention.
Skin Contact: Wipe off excess material from skin then immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately.
Note to Physician: Symptomatic and supportive treatment is recommended.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
Flammability of the Product: Non-flammable. However the product supports combustion.
Auto-Ignition Temperature: Not applicable.
Flash Points: Not applicable.
Flammable Limits: Not applicable.
Products of Combustion: When heated to decomposition, emits acid fumes.
Fire: Calcium Nitrite is not considered to be a fire hazard though it supports combustion as an oxidizer.
Explosion: Containers may explode in the heat of a fire.
Fire Extinguishing Media: Preferably use water sprat. Use any 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. Calcium Nitrite is a Strong Oxidizer. May decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May accelerate burning if involved in a fire.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. 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.
7. Handling and Storage
Do not breathe dust. 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 Calcium Nitrite in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage.
8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Airborne Exposure Limits: None established.
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.
