    PULMONARY EDEMA (HCL). SKIN IRRITATION, CONJUNCTIVITIS (KCL).

=======================  First Aid Measures  =======================

First Aid:SKIN: IMMED FLUSH W/WATER FOR 15 MIN. REMOVE ANY CLTHG THAT
    IS CONTAMD. CNTCT MD. EYES: IMMED FLUSH W/WATER FOR AT LEAST 15 MIN
    INCL UNDER EYELIDS. CNTCT MD. INHAL: REMOVE TO FRESH AIR. RESTORE
    &/OR S UPPORT BRTHG AS NEEDED. USE OXYGEN THERAPY FOR COUGH, DFCLT
    BRTHG. GET MED HELP. INGEST: IF CONSCIOUS, GIVE 2-3 GLASSES WATER,
    THEN MILK OF MAGNESIA OR LIMEWATER. CNTCT MD. DO NOT INDUCE
    VOMITING.

=====================  Fire Fighting Measures  =====================

Extinguishing Media:SELECT THAT SUITABLE FOR SURROUNDING FIRE. USE A
    WATER SPRAY TO COOL FIRE-EXPOSED CONTAINERS TO PREVENT RUPTURE.
Fire Fighting Procedures:USE NIOSH/MSHA APPROVED SCBA AND FULL
    PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT .
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:NON-FLAMM, BUT ACID CAN REACT W/MANY
    METALS TO PRDCE FLAMM HYDROGEN GAS. NEUT ACID W/LIMESTONE, SLAKED
    LIME OR SODA ASH TO MINIMIZE FORMATION OF HYDROGEN GAS.

==================  Accidental Release Measures  ==================

Spill Release Procedures:REMOVE SOURCES OF IGNIT IF H*2 IS A HAZ.
    PROVIDE OPTIMUM VENT, RPT LG SPILLS TO SFTY PERS. SM SPILLS CAN BE
    COVERED W/EXCESS OF MIX OF SODA ASH & SLAKED LIME TO NEUT & SLURRY
    PICKED UP FOR LANDFILL BU RIAL/FLUSHED W/MUCH WATER. CNTN LG
    SPILLS.(SUPDAT)
Neutralizing Agent:LIMESTONE, SODA ASH OR SLAKED LIME.

======================	Handling and Storage  ======================

Handling and Storage Precautions:STORE CNTNRS IN CLEAN, COOL, WELL-VENT
    AREA OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT, AWAY FROM OXIDIZING AGENTS, AWAY FROM
    ALKALINE MATL & SOURCES OF HEAT.
Other Precautions:PROVIDE EMER NEUTRALIZATION MATLS & EQUIP NEAR
    STORAGE & USE AREAS. NOTE: PHYSICAL & CHEM DATA & FIRE & EXPLO HAZ
    DATA ON THIS HYDROCHLORIC ACID SOLN DO NOT EXIST. THE DATA PROVIDED
    IS FOR HAZ INGREDS	>/= 1%.

=============  Exposure Controls/Personal Protection  =============

Respiratory Protection:USE NIOSH/MSHA APPROVED RESPIRATOR APPROPRIATE
    FOR EXPOSURE OF CONCERN .
Ventilation:PROVIDE ADEQUATE EXHAUST VENTILATION TO MEET TLV
    REQUIREMENTS.
Protective Gloves:RUBBER GLOVES OR GAUNTLETS.
Eye Protection:ANSI APPRVD CHEM WORKERS GOGGS (SUPDAT)
Other Protective Equipment:ANSI APPROVED EYE WASH & DELUGE SHOWER . USE
    FULL PROT CLOTHING & EQUIPMENT TO PREVENT BODY CONTACT W/LIQUID.
Work Hygienic Practices:NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER.

====================  Disposal Considerations  ====================

Waste Disposal Methods:DISPOSE OF ACID VIA LICENSED
    CONTRACTOR/NEUTRALIZE W/LIMESTONE, SODA ASH OR SLAKED LIME.
    FLUSHING TO SEWER DEPENDS ON ALLOWABLE NEUT SALT CONCS & EFFLUENT
    WATER. CONSIDER USE OF WASTE ACID TO NEUTRALI ZE ALKALINE WASTES.
    FOLLOW FED, STATE &LOC REGS.
