IV.  FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS DATA

Flash Point:  N/A

Ignition Temperature:  N/E or N/A

Explosive LimitsLower:  N/A         Upper:  N/A

Extinguishing Medium:  Use suitable extinguishing media for surrounding material and type of fire.

Special Firefighting Procedures:  Firefighters must wear full face, self-contained breathing apparatus with full protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.  Fumes from fire are hazardous.  Isolate runoff to prevent environmental pollution.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When heated to decomposition, titanium sulfide may emit toxic fumes.

 

 

V.  HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

Effects of Exposure:

Titanium and titanium compounds are considered physiologically inert.  There are no reported cases in the literature where titanium as such has caused human intoxication.

Sulfides show variable toxicity.  The alkaline sulfides are similar in action to alkalies.  They cause irritation to the skin and are corrosive by ingestion.  The heavy metal sulfides are generally insoluble and show little toxic action except through the liberation of hydrogen sulfide.  Hydrogen sulfide, if generated, is toxic, a severe irritant and flammable.  Effects include conjunctivitis, headache, nausea, dizziness, coughing, pulmonary edema and possibly death.

Acute Effects:

Inhalation:  May cause irritation to the upper respiratory tract and mucous membranes.

Ingestion:  No acute health effects recorded.

Skin:  May cause skin irritation.

Eye:  May cause irritation.

Chronic Effects:  No chronic health effects recorded.

Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Pre-existing respiratory disorders.

CarcinogenicityNTP:  No          IARC:  No             OSHA:  No

 

EMERGENCY AND FIRST AID PROCEDURES:

INHALATION:  Remove the victim to fresh air, keep warm and quiet, give oxygen if breathing is difficult and seek medical attention.

INGESTION:  Give 1-2 glasses of milk or water and induce vomiting, seek medical assistance.  Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

SKIN:  Remove contaminated clothing, brush material off skin, wash affected area with soap and water, seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

EYES:  Immediately flush eyes with water, lifting upper and lower eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.  Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

 

 

VI.  REACTIVITY DATA

Stability:  Stable

Conditions to Avoid:  Water/moisture.

Incompatibility:  Strong acids, strong oxidizing agents and water/moisture.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:  Titanium oxides, sulfur oxides and hydrogen sulfide.

Hazardous Polymerization:  Will not occur.

 

 

VII.  SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled:  Wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment specified in section VIII.  Isolate spill area and provide ventilation.  Vacuum up spill using a high efficiency particulate absolute (HEPA) air filter and place in a closed container for proper disposal.  Take care not to raise dust.

Waste Disposal Method:  Material should be disposed of in accordance with applicable Federal, State and Local regulations.

 

 

VIII.  SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

Respiratory Protection:  Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator.

Ventilation:  Use local exhaust to maintain concentration of exposure at low levels.  General exhaust is recommended.

Protective Gloves:  Rubber gloves

Eye Protection:  Safety glasses

Other Protective Equipment:  Protective gear suitable to prevent contamination

 

 

IX.  SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storing:  Keep away from heat and moisture.  Store the material in a sealed container.

Work Practices:  Implement engineering and work practice controls to reduce and maintain concentration of exposure at low levels.  Use good housekeeping and sanitation practices.  Do not use tobacco or food in work area.  Wash thoroughly before eating and smoking.  Do not blow dust off clothing or skin with compressed air.  Maintain eyewash capable of sustained flushing, safety drench shower and facilities for washing.
