2. Hazard Identification
Colorless, odorless solution with a slight yellow/greenish tint. Does not burn when wet.When dried it can decompose explosively under intense fire conditions forming oxygen and hydrogen chloride gas.
Moderate to Strong Oxidizer
Promotes combustion when dried. Reacts violently with sulfur and sulfur-containing materials, red phosphorus and strong reducing agents.At low pH, reacts releasing corrosive and reactive chlorine dioxide.
Routes of Entry:
Inhalation, skin contact/absorption, eye contact or ingestion
SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
Inhalation of vapors or mists will cause irritation of the muscus membranes and respiratory tract. Symptoms may include coughing, bloody nose, and sneezing. Severe exposure may cause lung damage.
Direct contact may cause irritation and or burns with symptoms of redness, itching, swelling and possible alkali burns.
Direct contact may cause irritation and or burns with symptoms of redness, itching, swelling and possible alkali burns, and destruction of tissue.
Ingestion may cause gastroenteritis with any or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, bleeding, or ulceration. Acute ingestion of large quantities may also cause anemia due to the oxidizing effects of the chemical, and renal failure.

4. First Aid Measures
Remove contaminated clothing and keep it wet until washed.
Wash the affected area with soap and water. If irritation develops get medical attention.
|Eyes||Flush with water for a minimum of 15 minutes. If irritation persists seek medical attention.|
If irritation or other symptoms are experienced. remove victim to fresh air.
If symptoms persist, get medical attention.

6. Accidental Release Measures
|Leak Or Spill Procedures|
Contain spills.Collect into clean compatible metal or high density
Polyethylene containers. Wash away residues with large amounts of water.
Do not use rags, sawdust or other combustibles absorbents.
Use non reactive absorbent i.e. Clay, Fullers Earth.
|Waste Control Procedures|
Wash or incinerate all contaminated combustible material in an
environmentally acceptable manner before it dries. Consult supplier regarding disposal of reclaimed sodium chlorite.
7. Handling Storage
|Handling Procedures and Equipment|
Use corrosion resistant tools and equipment. Avoid skin or clothing contact. Use caution when handling.
|Storage||Store in a cool, dry area out of direct sunlight.|
Do not let solution come into contact combustibles, organics, and acids, while in storage.
8.Exposure Controls / Personal Protection
Protective Equipment: Chemical safety goggles. Butyl rubber or neoprene gloves. Dust/ mist mask in
dusty or misty locations. Wear waterproof or washable outer clothing. Remove contaminated clothing and
wash it before it dries.
Engineering Controls: Use in well ventilated area.
9.Physical And Chemical Properties
Odor:Faint bleach-like odor
Boiling Point: Depends on concentration 100-105°C
Melting Point:Not applicable
Freezing Point:Depends on concentration-4--10°C
Appearance:Clear Solution,pale yellow

10.Stability And Reactivity
Chemical Stability: Stable in itself, but reactive as detailed below.
Reactivity Conditions Reacts on mixing with acids to create chlorine dioxide and chlorine gases.
Mixtures with combustibles, if allowed to dry out,are easily ignited by heat or friction and burn vigorously
or may explode.
Incompatible Substances:Incompatible with all combustibles and reducing agents,especially
phosphorus,sulfur-containing materials,powdered metals,ammonium compounds. Incompatible with
Hazardous Decomposition Products:Residues of sodium chlorite, from dried-out solution, will give off
oxygen on being heated strongly.
Skin Contact:Irritating to the skin if not washed off promptly. Dermatitis is likely to occur from repeated
or prolonged contact.
Skin Absorption: Not available
Eye Contact: Causes severe eye irritation. May cause permanent damage because of corrosive
Inhalation: Spray or mist is irritating to the nose lungs, and throat.
Ingestion: Will irritate and may cause corrosion of the gastrointestinal tract. May cause vomiting,
nausea,diarrhea,cramps and pain. May damage blood cells, liver and kidney.
