Physical Or Chemical Hazards

Strong oxidizing agent. Mix only with water. HemaPeroxy® Disinfectant is not combustible; however, at temperatures exceeding 69°C, decomposition occurs releasing oxygen. The oxygen released could initiate or promote combustion of other materials.

Environmental Hazards

This product is toxic to birds, mammals, fish and aquatic life. Do not discharge effluent containing this product into lakes, streams, ponds, estuaries, oceans, or other waters unless in accordance with requirements of a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit and the permitting authority has been notified in writing prior to discharge. Do no discharge effluent containing this product to sewer systems without previously notifying the local sewage treatment plant authority. For guidance contact your Regional office.

Any solution released from the system should be diluted with water and tested for residuals to ensure that there is less than 3 ppm peroxygen remaining.

Warnings

KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

Corrosive, causes eye and skin damage. Harmful if swallowed. Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Do not breathe the vapour or spray mist. Do not enter a recently sprayed/vaporized/fogged enclosed area without proper respiratory protection.

Toxicological Information:

Note to physician: Probable mucosal damage may contraindicate the use of gastric lavage.

This product is not to be used as a terminal sterilant/high-level disinfectant on any surface or instrument that (1) is introduced directly into the human body, either into or in contact with the bloodstream or normally sterile areas of the body, or (2) contacts intact mucous membranes but which does not ordinarily penetrate the blood barrier or otherwise enter normally sterile areas of the body. This product may be used to preclean or decontaminate critical or semi-critical medical devices prior to sterilization or high-level disinfection.

First Aid:

If swallowed: Rinse mouth with water. Dilute by giving 1 or 2 glasses of water. Do not induce vomiting. See a physician.

If inhaled: Remove to fresh air. If breathing discomfort occurs, call a physician. If breathing has stopped, apply artificial respiration and contact a physician.

If in eyes: Immediately flush with water for at least 15 minutes, lifting the upper and lower eyelids intermittently. See a physician.

Storage

NEVER RETURN HemaPeroxy® Disinfectant TO THE ORIGINAL CONTAINER AFTER IT HAS BEEN REMOVED. Avoid all contaminants, especially dirt, caustic, reducing agents and metals. Contamination and impurities will reduce shelf life and can induce decomposition. In case of a decomposition, isolate container, douse container with cool water and dilute with large volumes of water.

Avoid damage to containers. Keep container closed at all times when not in use. Keep container out of direct sunlight. To maintain product quality, store at temperature below 30°C. Do not store on wooden pallets.

Disposal

Pesticide Disposal: If material has been spilled, an acceptable method of disposal is to dilute with at least 10 volumes of water, followed by discharge into suitable treatment system in accordance with all local, provincial and Federal environmental laws, rules, regulations, standards and other requirements. Because acceptable methods of disposal may vary by location, regulatory agencies should be contacted prior to disposal.

HemaPeroxy® Disinfectant which is to be discarded should be disposed of as hazardous waste after contacting the appropriate local, provincial or Federal agency to determine proper procedures.

Container Disposal: Empty jugs are not returnable to Chief Medical Supplies Ltd., unless special arrangements have been made. Triple rinse jugs with water. Dispose of jugs in accordance with local, provincial and Federal regulations.

Procedure for Leak or Spill: Stop leak if this can be done without risk. Shut off ignition sources; no flames, smoking, flares or spark producing tools. Keep combustible and organic materials away. Flush spilled material with large quantities of water. Undiluted material should not enter confined spaces.
