Muriate, Sal Ammonia, Salmiac Chemical Name: Ammonium Chloride Chemical Formula: NH4Cl Section 3: Hazard Identification Potential Acute Health Effects: Hazardous in case of eye contact (irritant), slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant, sensitizer), of ingestion, of inhalation Potential Chronic Health Effects: Carcinogenic Effects: Not available. Mutagenic Effects: Not available. Teratogenic Effects: Not available. Developmental Toxicity: Not available. Repeated or prolonged exposure is not known to aggravate medical condition. Section 4: First Aid Measures Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention. Skin Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Cold water may be used. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse. Get medical attention. Serious Skin Contact: Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an antibacterial cream. Seek immediate medical attention. Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention. Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Section 6: Accidental Release Measures Small Spills: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements. Large Spills: Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Be careful that the product is not present at a concentration level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.
