SECTION 5 : Firefighting measures Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing agents: If in laboratory setting, follow laboratory fire suppression procedures. Use appropriate fire suppression agents for adjacent combustible materials or sources of ignition Created by Global Safety Management, Inc. -Tel: 1-813-435-5161 – NFPA/HMIS Safety Data Sheet according to 29CFR1910/1200 and GHS Rev. 3 Effective date : 12.14.2014 Page 3 of 7

Calcium Chloride SDS,Dihydrate For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Combustion products may include carbon oxides or other toxic vapors.Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapors.Avoid generating dust; fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard. Advice for firefighters: Protective equipment: Use NIOSH-approved respiratory protection/breathing apparatus. Additional information (precautions): Move product containers away from fire or keep cool with water spray as a protective measure, where feasible.Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. SECTION 6 : Accidental release measures Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Wear protective equipment. Transfer to a disposal or recovery container.Use spark-proof tools and explosion- proof equipment.Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol. Keep unprotected persons away. Ensure adequate ventilation.Keep away from ignition sources. Protect from heat.Stop the spill, if possible. Contain spilled material by diking or using inert absorbent. Environmental precautions: Collect contaminated soil for characterization per Section 13. Should not be released into the environment. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: If in a laboratory setting, follow Chemical Hygiene Plan procedures.Collect liquids using vacuum or by use of absorbents. Place into properly labeled containers for recovery or disposal. If necessary, use trained response staff/contractor.Dust deposits should not be allowed to accumulate on surfaces, as these may form an explosive mixture if they are released into the atmosphere in sufficient concentration. Avoid dispersal of dust in the air (i.e., clearing dust surfaces with compressed air). Reference to other sections: SECTION 7 : Handling and storage Precautions for safe handling: Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Wash hands after handling. Avoid dispersal of dust in the air (i.e., clearing dust surfaces with compressed air). Routine housekeeping should be instituted to ensure that dusts do not accumulate on surfaces. Dry powders can build static electricity charges when subjected to the friction of transfer and mixing operations. Follow good hygiene procedures when handling chemical materials. Do not eat, drink, smoke, or use personal products when handling chemical substances. If in a laboratory setting, follow Chemical Hygiene Plan.Use only in well ventilated areas.Avoid generation of dust or fine particulate.Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in a cool location. Provide ventilation for containers. Avoid storage near extreme heat, ignition sources or open flame. Store away from foodstuffs. Store away from oxidizing agents.Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Keep container tightly sealed.Protect from freezing and physical damage, keep product from moisture.

Calcium Chloride SDS,Dihydrate Control Parameters: 10035-04-8, Nuisance dust, ACGIH TLV TWA:10mg/m3 (inhalable particles) 10035-04-8, Nuisance dust, OSHA PEL TWA: 15 mg/m3 (total dust) Appropriate Engineering controls: Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of use/handling.Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of vapor or dusts (total/respirable) below the applicable workplace exposure limits (Occupational Exposure Limits-OELs) indicated above.Use under a fume hood. It is recommended that all dust control equipment such as local exhaust ventilation and material transport systems involved in handling of this product contain explosion relief vents or an explosion suppression system or an oxygen deficient environment.Ensure that dust-handling systems (such as exhaust ducts, dust collectors, vessels, and processing equipment) are designed in a manner to prevent the escape of dust into the work area (i.e., there is no leakage from the equipment). Respiratory protection: Not required under normal conditions of use. Use suitable respiratory protective device when high concentrations are present. Use suitable respiratory protective device when aerosol or mist is formed. For spills, respiratory protection may be advisable. Protection of skin: The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation being used/handled.Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation. Eye protection: Safety glasses with side shields or goggles. General hygienic measures: The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals. Keep away from food, beverages and feed sources. Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work. Do not inhale gases/fumes/dust/mist/vapor/aerosols. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.
