SECTION 4 SAFE HANDLING INFORMATION


STORAGE AND TRANSPORT
Best stored in well closed containers in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Ferrous salts are subject to oxidation in
storage.
SPILLS AND DISPOSAL :
Sweep up, but avoid generating dust.
FIRE/EXPLOSION HAZARD:
Nil hazard.
It is not advisable to use extinguisher of the chlorinated type as there will be the possibility of toxic fumes being
produced by the catalytic decomposition of the other materials involved.
REACTIVITY DATA
Hazardous catalytic reactions involving iron compounds have been reported . care must also be taken when
ferrous salts are mixed or reacted with oxidising agents.
