Percent: 85 - 100%

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Always seek medical attention after first aid measures are provided.

Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In case of contact, immediately flush eye with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Cold water may be used. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin Contact: Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Call a physician, immediately. Wash clothing before reuse..
Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to and unconscious person. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Get medical attention immediately.
Medical Conditions generally Aggravated by Exposure: Repeated exposure of the eyes to a low level of Potassium hydroxide dust can produce eye irritation. Repeated skin exposure can produce local skin destruction, or dermatitis. Repeated inhalation of dust can produce varying degree of respiratory irritation or lung damage.

Section 5: Fire Fighting Measures

Flash Point: NA
Fire Extinguishing Media: Adapt extinguishing media to the environment. Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear self contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Flammable hydrogen gas may be produced on prolong contact with metals such as aluminum, tin lead and zinc.
Hazardous combustion products: Oxides of Potassium.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

Steps to be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled: Evacuate the area of all unnecessary personnel. Wear suitable protective equipment. Eliminate any ignition sources until the area is determined to be free from explosion or fire hazards. Contain the release and eliminate its source, if this can be done without risk. Take up and containerize for proper disposal.  Comply with local, state and Federal regulations on reporting releases. Refer to regulatory information for reportable quantity and other regulatory data.
Methods for cleaning up: Take up liquid spill into absorbent material, e.g.: dry sand/earth or powdered limestone. Scoop absorbed substance into closing containers. Carefully collect the spill/leftovers. Small quantities of liquid spill may be neutralize with acid solution. Wash away neutralized product with plentiful water. Clean contaminated surfaces with an excess of water. Take collected spill to manufacturer/competent authority. Wash clothing and equipment after handling.
Waste Disposal Methods: Dispose of waste according to Federal, State and Local Regulations.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Keep Potassium hydroxide Pellets in a tightly closed original container. Protect from physical damage. Store in a cool, dry, ventilated area away from sources of heat, moisture and incompatibilities. Always add the caustic to water while stirring; never the reverse. Containers of Potassium hydroxide may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solids); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product. Do not store with aluminum or magnesium. Do not mix with acids or organic materials.

Section 11: Toxicological Information

Potassium hydroxide is corrosive to all tissues. It is a severe eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritant, and can burn any tissue with which it comes in contact. Contact with eye may cause redness, intense pain, and tearing. In severe cases, conjunctival edema and destruction of cornea may occur, which may result in permanent damage to the eye. Potassium hydroxide is a severe skin irritant, and contact with the skin can cause effects ranging from irritation to burns with deep and painful lesions. Burns may not be immediately painful. The onset of pain after contact may take minutes to hours; however, damage begins immediately.
Extremely hazardous in case of eye contact ( corrosive). Causes severe eye burns. Extremely hazardous in case of skin contact (corrosive). Skin contact produces severe burns. Hazardous in case of skin contact (permeator). Extremely hazardous in case of inhalation (lung corrosive). Hazardous in case of inhalation. Extremely hazardous in case of ingestion. May be fatal if swallowed. This product does not contain any compounds listed by NTP or IARC or regulated by OSHA as a carcinogen.
