Health Hazard 2
Fire 0
Reactivity Hazard 0
 
Potential Health Effects
Inhalation Cleared from the lungs into the bloodstream. Kidney effects were observed in rats and mice after prolonged exposure to relatively high levels.
Skin Barium ion is not expected to penetrate intact skin; penetration through cuts and burns may produce symptoms of over-exposure.
Eyes Particles in the eye will cause pain, tearing, and irritation.
Ingestion Kidney effects were observed in rats and mice after prolonged exposure to relatively high levels.

4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
If mist of this solution is inhaled, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention immediately and contact a poison control center.
Skin Contact
Wash with soap and water. Wash clothing before reuse.
Eye Contact
Flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention.
Ingestion Contact
If swallowed, Get medical attention immediately and contact a poison control center. Induce vomiting immediately, as directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
NOTE TO PHYSICIAN:
Administer potassium intravenously to counteract the effect of barium.

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
No fire hazard. Will release water vapor with popping when heated. This product is soluble in water and is harmful if swallowed or inhaled.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Limit water runoff if it is likely to contain this material, then add a soluble sulfate such as sodium sulfate to the water to form harmless barium sulfate.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
None.
Hazardous Combustion Products
None.
Protective Measure in Fire
No special equipment is required. Wash away any barium chloride solution which may contact the body, clothing, or equipment.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Avoid generating a mist of this solution. Use appropriate PPE. Spilled product could be a RCRA hazardous waste because of its soluble barium content.
Environment
Spill Clean Up
Small Spills: Carefully isolate spilled material, absorb in suitable absorbent material, and place in suitable container.

Large Spill: Prevent material from entering storm sewers or ditches leading to natural waterways. Mix with excess sulfate to make the material non-hazardous, or dispose of large amounts of this material in an approved hazardous waste landfill.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Cover exposed skin areas and wear general purpose gloves.
Process Conditions
Control airborn concentrations below the exposure limits by eliminating mist generation. use only with adequate ventilation is a mist is present.
Respirators
Use a NIOSH-approved dust mask if excessive dust is present.
Protective Gloves
General purpose gloves.
Eye Protection
Wear safety glasses. Use chemical goggles if excessive dust is present
Other Protection
Hygienic Work Practices

10.) STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
 
Stability
Keep away from intense heat as steam will be generated. Product will boil to dryness and then lose remaining water of crystallization at 113 Deg C (235 Deg. F) and may "pop" and "spit" when doing so.
Hazardous Decomp Products
None
Conditions to Avoid
Intense Heat

11.) TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
Toxic Dose LD 50
400 mg/kg of Barium Chloride (In rats)
Toxicological Info
No information found
Inhalation
No studies. Inhaled mist is expected to exhibit the same systemic toxicity as ingestion, as barium chloride is cleared from lungs into the blood stream.
Skin
Contact may be slightly irritating. Barium ion is not expected to pass through intact skin.
Eyes
The splashing or mist in eye is expected to be slightly to moderately irritating.
Medical Symptoms
No information found.

12.) ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
Toxicity
In turbid water at 20 Deg. C, the 96 hour TLM is 1930 mg Barium Chloride/1 for Mosquito Fish (Gambusia Affinis)
Distribution
Soluble barium chloride is expected to be precipitated from the ground and surface waters by sulfate ions in the enviroment, to form insoluble barium sulfate.
Chemical Fate
Soluble barium chloride is expected to be precipitated by sulfate in the enviroment as barium sulfate which is insoluble, inert, and non-toxic.

13.) DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
 
Disposal Methods
Waste containing more than 0.2% soluble barium is hazardous under the RCRA criteria. Soluble barium can be renered non-hazardous by reaction with excess sulfate to form insoluble barium sulfate. Any disposal practice must be in compliance with local, state, and federal laws and regulations. (Contact local or state environmental agency for specific rules). Do not dump into sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
