difficult. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Skin contact: For severe burns, immediate medical attention is required. Immediately call a poison center or doctor.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and
shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush skin with running water for at least 20 minutes.
Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s)
involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Eye contact: IMMEDIATELY flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Eye contact
with vapors or substance may cause severe injury, burns, or death. Call emergency medical service. Move
victim to fresh air. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat
symptomatically and supportively. Effects of exposure to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. Do not induce vomiting with out medical advice. Call a physician or Poison Control
Center immediately. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested the substance; give artificial
respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory
medical device. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If a person vomits place them
in the recovery position so that vomit will not reenter the mouth and throat. Rinse mouth. Keep victim warm
and quiet. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the
material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Symptoms/effects:
Acute: Pain. Redness.
Delayed: No data available
Immediate medical attention: WARNING: It might be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth respiration, because
the inhaled material is harmful. WARNING: It might be hazardous to the person providing aid to give
mouth-to-mouth respiration, because the inhaled material is corrosive. For severe burns, immediate
medical attention is required. If breathing has stopped, perform artificial respiration. Use first aid treatment
according to the nature of the injury. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved
and take precautions to protect themselves.


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemical, soda ash, lime or dry sand. Consult with local fire authorities before attempting large scale
fire fighting operations.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do NOT use water or foam.
Specific hazards arising from the chemical
Hazardous combustion products: These products include: Carbon oxides Halogenated compounds Metallic oxides
Other specific hazards: WARNING: Highly toxic HCl gas is produced during combustion.
Special precautions for fire-fighters:
Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. Dike fire-control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material. May re-ignite after fire is
extinguished. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Do not get water inside containers. Cylinders exposed to fire may vent and release
gasses through pressure relief devices. Containers may explode when heated. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Structural fire fighters' protective clothing provides limited protection in fire situations
ONLY; it may not be effective in spill situations. Wear chemical protective clothing which is specifically recommended by the manufacturer. It may
provide little or no thermal protection.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Use sparkproof
tools and explosion-proof equipment. Remove all sources of ignition. Do not touch damaged
containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing (Section 8). Warn
unnecessary personnel to move away. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
Personal protective equipment: Wear eye protection (splash goggles) and face protection (full length face shield). Lab coat. Dust
respirator. Be sure to use a MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator or equivalent. Wear protective gloves
(nitrile).
Emergency procedures: Do not use water as spilled material may react with it. Prevent dust cloud. ELIMINATE all ignition sources
(no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in the immediate area). Do not touch damaged containers or spilled
material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Warn personnel to move away. Prevent entry into
sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). Stop leak if without risk. Do not direct water at spill source.
DO NOT get water inside container. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Absorb with DRY earth, sand or other noncombustible
material. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect material and place it into loosely covered plastic containers for later disposal. Do not cleanup
or dispose except under supervision of a specialist. Ventilate the area.
Environmental precautions:
Keep away from living quarters. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Prevent entry into
sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed.

Related Elements

Chlorine is a Block P, Group 17, Period 3 element. Its electron configuration is [Ne]3s23p5. The chlorine atom has a covalent radius of 102±4 pm and its Van der Waals radius is 175 pm. In its elemental form, chlorine is a yellow-green gas. Chlorine is the second lightest halogen after fluorine. it has the third highest electronegativity and the highest electron affinity of all the elements making it a strong oxidizing agent. It is rarely found by itself in nature. Chlorine was discovered and first isolated by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1774. It was first recognized as an element by Humphry Davy in 1808.

See more Zirconium products. Zirconium (atomic symbol: Zr, atomic number: 40) is a Block D, Group 4, Period 5 element with an atomic weight of 91.224. Zirconium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of Zirconium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 10, 2 and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d2 5s2. The zirconium atom has a radius of 160 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 186 pm. Zirconium was discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth in 1789 and first isolated by Jöns Jakob Berzelius in 1824. In its elemental form, zirconium has a silvery white appearance that is similar to titanium. Zirconium's principal mineral is zircon (zirconium silicate). Elemental ZirconiumZirconium is commercially produced as a byproduct of titanium and tin mining and has many applications as a opacifier and a refractory material. It is not found in nature as a free element. The name of zirconium comes from the mineral zircon, the most important source of zirconium, and from the Persian wordzargun, meaning gold-like.
