Store locked-up in a ventilated space, in accordance with all applicable regulations.
Dispose of contents/container in accordance with all applicable regulations.
Other Hazards:
Exposure reaction may be aggravated for those with pre-existing eye, skin, or respiratory conditions.
Causes methemoglobinemia. Methemoglobinemia decreases the blood’s ability to carry oxygen and results in
symptoms such as dizziness, drowsiness, headache, shortness of breath, blue skin and lips, rapid heart rate,
unconsciousness, and possibly death.
Unknown Acute Toxicity: Not available

Note 1: For the listed ingredients exact percentages are being withheld as CBI (confidential business information).
SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
General: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If you feel unwell, get medical
attention, show the label where possible.
Inhalation: When symptoms occur: move to open air, keep at rest and in a position comfortable for
breathing. Get medical attention. Ventilate suspected area.
Skin Contact: Wash contact areas with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash
contaminated clothing before reuse.
Eye Contact: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and
easy to do so. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth. DO NOT induce vomiting. Get medical attention.
Most Important Symptoms and Effects both Acute and Delayed:
Inhalation: Prolonged exposure may cause irritation to the respiratory tract, symptoms include:
sneezing, coughing, burning sensation of throat with constricting sensation of the
larynx and difficulty in breathing.
Skin Contact: May cause mild skin irritation. Symptoms may include: redness, pain, swelling, itching,
burning, dryness and dermatitis. May cause a more severe irritation or allergic reaction
in sensitive individuals.
Eye Contact: May cause serious eye irritation. Symptoms may include redness, pain, swelling,
itching, burning, tearing and blurred vision.

SDS: P-11 Version: 6 Revision Date: 07/05/2016 Page 3 / 8
Ingestion: May cause vasodilatory effect. Ammonium nitrate ingestion may cause
methemoglobinemia. Initial manifestation of methemoglobinemia is cyanosis,
characterized by blue lips, tongue and mucous membranes, with skin color being slate
grey. Further manifestation is characterized by headache, weakness, dyspnea,
dizziness, stupor, respiratory distress and death due to anoxia. If ingested, nitrates may
be reduced to nitrites by bacteria in the digestive tract. Signs and symptoms of nitrite
poisoning include methemoglobinemia, nausea, dizziness, increased heart rate,
hypotension, fainting and, possibly shock.
Chronic Symptoms: Prolonged exposure may cause irritation to the respiratory tract. May cause
damage to organs through prolonged or repeated exposure.
Indication of Any Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment Needed:
If exposed, concerned or you don’t feel well, get medical attention.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
DO NOT fight fires involving Explosives. There is an extreme risk that explosives involved
in a fire may detonate, especially if confined. Evacuate the area in all directions for one (1) mile
or more if any amount of explosives is involved in a fire. Evacuation is recommended if the initial
(incipient) fire, not involving explosives, becomes intense. General extinguishers may be used on
the initial fire not involving explosives, such as electrical equipment fires, tire fires or a general
plant fire. Water may be used to cool explosives not involved in the initial fire. Consult the most
current Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG), Guide 112 for additional information.
Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: None.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: For fires near explosives, dry chemical, foams, steam and
smothering devices are not effective, can lead to possible
explosion and must not be used.
Special Hazards Arising from the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: There is an extreme risk that explosives involved in a fire may
detonate.
Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures: It is recommended that the amount and location of any explosives
stored near a fire be determined prior to committing firefighters to
fight the fire.
Firefighting Instructions: When fighting the initial fire, not involving explosives, firefighters
should follow standard firefighting procedures for the materials
involved.
Hazardous Combustion Products: No unusual combustion products are expected. However, toxic fumes
will be present.

for Containment and Cleaning Up Contact manufacturer or CHEMTREC.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for Safe Handling Open and handle receptacle with care. Avoid jolting, friction and
impact, use only in well ventilated areas
Additional Hazards when Processed: Avoid heating explosives in a confined space. Any proposed use
of this product in elevated temperature processes should be
thoroughly evaluated to assure that safe operating conditions are
established and maintained. A “hot work” program consistent
with OSHA requirements at 29 CFR 1910.252 must be used
when performing hot work on explosive process equipment,
storage areas or containers related to the intended use.
Hygiene Measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
procedures. Wash hands and other exposed areas with soap and
water before eating, drinking, or smoking and again when leaving
work. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures: Smoking, open flames, and unauthorized
sparking or flame-producing devices are prohibited.
Storage Conditions: Storage areas should be inspected regularly by an individual
trained to identify potential hazards and ensure that all safety
and security control measures are being properly implemented.
All explosives storage sites must comply with ATF, OSHA or
NRCAN regulations.
