2. COMPOSITION & IDENTIFICATION INGREDIENTS

2.1. Common Chemical : Poly Aluminium Chloride


Name

2.2. Synonyms : PAC Poly Aluminium


Hydrochloride
2.3. Chemical Family : Acid

2.4. Ingredients : Poly Aluminium Chloride


contributing to the hazard
: 1327-41-9
2.5. Chemicals abstract
registry number

3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION

3.1. Most important hazard : Mild Irritant

: Keep out of reach of


3.2. Safety Phrases children. In case of
contact with skin wash
immediately with plenty of
water.

4. FIRST – AID MEASURES

4.1. Skin and Eye Contact : Wash with copious


amounts of water.

4.2. Inhalation : Remove from


contaminated area.
Obtain medical attention.
:
4.3. Ingestion Do not induce vomiting.
Administer a 5% solution
of Sodium bicarbonate
followed by milk. Obtain
medical attention.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

5.1. Extinguishing Media : Poly Aluminium


Chloride is non-
flammable.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

6.1. Personal Precautions : Wear protective clothing.


See Section 8 of this Data
Sheet.

6.2. Environmental : Where a spillage or


Precautions contaminated washings
causes contamination of
watercourses, drains or
vegetation inform relevant
authorities.

6.3. Clean up procedure : Contain all spillage of


PAC. Collect liquid either
by pumping into an
emergency tank or by
absorption in dry sand
(small spillage). Dispose
of using licensed waste
disposal contractors.

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

7.1. Handling Precautions : Wear Protective clothing.


Safety showers and eye
wash facilities should be
provided in areas where
an accidental exposure is
possible. Once diluted it
should be used as soon
as possible.

7.2. Storage : Poly Aluminium Chloride


becomes unstable when
stored or transported for
some time at
temperatures higher than
40°C. Poly Aluminium
Chloride tends to
hydrolyse to a white
turbid solution and loses
effectiveness when
it is kept long a diluted
solution of less than
approximately 3% (as
Al2O3).
Should be stored in
HDPE Containers only.
