Section III – Physical Properties
Boiling Point: ~100 C (212 F)
Vapor Pressure: 17 mm Hg @ 68 F (20 C)
Melting Point: n.a.
Vapor Density: <1 Air = 1
Evaporation Rate: less than Butyl Acetate
Specific Gravity: 1.14-1.18
Water Solubility: 100%
Non-volatile: 15-25%
Physical Appearance: Dark reddish-brown solution, some sedimentation possible.

Section IV – Fire and Explosion Hazard Data
Explosion Limits (LEL): n.a.
UEL: n.a.
Extinguishing Media: Not flammable, use extinguishing media appropriate for surroundings.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Will give off corrosive HCl gas.
Firefighting Procedures: NIOSH/MSHA pressure-demand, self-contained breathing apparatus should be
used and full protective gear.
Special Fire & Explosion Hazards: Evolved HCl gas will react with metals to produce hydrogen gas,
which can react with air to form an explosive mixture.
Section V – Health Hazard Information
Primary Route(s) of Entry: Inhalation, skin contact, eye contact, and ingestion.
Suspect Carcinogens: Sodium dichromate (respiratory)
Effects of Acute Overexposure:
Eyes – Will cause burning, stinging, tearing, and redness. Can cause severe irritation and damage
to eyes with possible blindness if not treated immediately.
Skin – Exposure can cause irritation, redness, and burning. Chronic exposure can cause dermatitis.
Stain-Crete Walnut MSDS, Page 2 of 3
Respiratory – Overexposure can cause difficulty with breathing and irritation of respiratory organs.
Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause ulceration and perforation of the nasal septum. Studies
indicate that long-term exposure to high levels of chromate mist is associated with increased levels
of respiratory tract cancer in man, though no studies have indicated increased risk of lung cancer at
levels below the current TLV.
Ingestion – Burning of mouth and throat, nausea and gastro-intestinal irritation.
First Aid:
Eyes – Flush with large quantities of water immediately and get medical attention. Continue to flush
with water until a physician is available.
Skin – Remove contaminated clothing, flush exposed area with large amounts of water. If skin is
damaged or symptoms of irritation persist, seek medical attention.
Respiratory – Remove individual to fresh air immediately. Give oxygen for labored breathing. If
unconscious, begin artificial respiration. Seek medical attention.
Ingestion – DO NOT induce vomiting. Give individual several glasses of water or milk, keep
individual warm and quiet, and seek medical attention.
Section VI – Chemical Reactivity
Stability: Material is stable.
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Incompatibility: Avoid metals, reducing agents, alkalis, oxidizers, and organic materials.
Conditions to Avoid: Excessive heat.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Hydrogen chloride and chlorine fumes which may further react
with metals and other materials to produce explosive hydrogen gas or other toxic fumes.
Section VII – Spill Procedures
Small Spill: Neutralize with baking soda solution, absorb with inert material and discard.
Large Spill: Material will stain surrounding areas. Do not permit runoff. Neutralize unreacted acid with a
baking soda solution (when fizzing stops, neutralization is complete). Absorb with inert material or
use acid-resistant wet vacuum. Place contaminated materials in labeled containers and dispose.
Waste Disposal Method: Dispose of material in complaince with local, state and federal regulations.
Section VIII – Special Protection Information
Respiratory Protection: Wear approved acid-vapor respirator.
Ventilation: Use sufficient local exhaust as needed to maintain exposure below levels listed in Section II.
Gloves: Use acid-resistant gloves.
Eye Protection: Use splash-proof, chemical-resistant goggles.
Other Protective Equipment: Rubber boots and protective clothing are strongly advised. Emergency
eyewash, washing facilities and neutralizing solution should be available.
Section IX – Special Precautions
Handling and Storing: Store containers tightly sealed and upright in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area
away from combustible materials, heat, and incompatible materials. Protect containers from
damage. Do not reuse empty containers. Wash hands and exposed areas with soap and water.
