PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION
Physical State; Appearance WHITE HYGROSCOPIC POWDER.
Chemical dangers The solution in water is a strong base. It reacts violently with acid and is corrosive to aluminium, tin and zinc. Reacts with ammonium salts. This generates fire hazard.
Molecular mass: 82
Melting point: 1650°C Density: >1.5 g/cm³ Solubility in water: very good
EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Corrosive on ingestion. Medical observation is indicated.
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
