Section 2 - COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Risk Phrases: 36/37/38 8
Section 3 - HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Irritating to eyes, respiratory system and skin. Contact with combustible material may cause fire.Moisture sensitive.
Potential Health Effects
Causes eye irritation. May cause permanent corneal opacification.
May cause chemical conjunctivitis.
Causes skin irritation.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Causes respiratory tract irritation. May cause acute pulmonary edema, asphyxia, chemical pneumonitis, and upper airway obstruction caused by edema.
Effects may be delayed.
Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Wash mouth out with water.
Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Strong oxidizer. Contact with other material may cause fire. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use water with caution and in flooding amounts. Oxidizer. Greatly increases the burning rate of combustible materials. Some oxidizers may react explosively with hydrocarbons(fuel). May accelerate burning if involved in a fire. Containers may explode when heated.
Do NOT get water inside containers. Contact professional fire-fighters immediately. For small fires, do NOT use dry chemicals, carbon dioxide, halon or foams. USE WATER ONLY. For large fires flood fire with water from a distance.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation. Do not get water inside containers. Do not use combustible materials such as paper towels to clean up spill.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Wash thoroughly after handling. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid contact with clothing and other combustible materials. Do not get on skin or in eyes. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not allow contact with water. Keep from contact with moist air and steam.
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Do not store near combustible materials. Store in a tightly closed container. Store protected from moisture.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Exposure Limits CAS# 13590-82-4: Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166.
Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Wear a chemical apron. Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure. Wear appropriate clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced.

Section 10 - STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions. Ceric sulfate tetrahydrate loses water on heating, becoming anhydrous at 180-200C; decomposes above 350C forming CeOSO4. It is soluble in a small quantity of water but decomposes in a large quantity of water with separation of a basic salt.
Conditions to Avoid:
Incompatible materials, ignition sources, dust generation, moisture, excess heat, combustible materials, reducing agents, exposure to moist air or water.
Incompatibilities with Other Materials:
Oxidizing agents, reducing agents, moisture.
Hazardous Decomposition Products:
Carbon monoxide, oxides of sulfur, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
