PERSONAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Ventilation: Use adequate ventilation.
Respiratory Protection: Not generally required unless needed to prevent respiratory irritation. In case of
spill or leak resulting in unknown concentration, use NIOSH/MSHA approved supplied air respirator. When entry into or exit from concentrations of unknown exposure, use NIOSH/MSHA approved self-contained breathing
Eye Protection: Use chemical goggles
Skin Protection: Use butyl rubber gloves. Wear protective garments to prevent excessive skin contact.
Note: Personal protection information shown in Section C is based upon general information as to normal uses
and conditions. Where special or unusual uses or conditions exist, it is suggested that the expert assistance of an industrial hygienist or other qualified professional be sought.
D. HANDLING AND STORAGE PRECAUTIONS
HANDLE WITH CARE. Keep away from materials or conditions listed below in Section E, Reactivity Data.
Do not grind or subject Benzoyl Peroxide to frictional heat or shock. Do not add peroxide to hot reaction mixtures. Do not transfer to rigid containers with tight or screw-on closures. Do not allow benzoyl peroxide to dry out, as the material will become shock and friction sensitive. Wear protective equipment and/or garments described in Section C if exposure conditions warrant. Avoid inhalation and skin and eye contact. Wash hands after handling. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Dispense and transfer in an area separate from storage area. Store ONLY in original containers in a cool, isolated, well ventilated area. The addition of accelerators for polymerization may result in vigorous decomposition. Store below 100°F (38°C). Do not return residues to original container. Consult NFPA 432 for storage area guidance. . Storage and handling designs should be arranged in consultation with a person experienced in these types of
E. REACTIVITY DATA
Stability: This material is thermally and chemically reactive, either of which may result in dangerous
conditions. Self Accelerating Decomposition Temperature ≅ 140°F (60°C).
Conditions to Avoid: Heat, flames, sparks, metal contamination and direct sunlight. Temperatures above the
storage temperature of 100°F (38°C) could lead to a loss of product quality and a thermal decomposition of the product that could generate hazardous and flammable chemicals.
Incompatibility (materials to avoid): Combustion materials, acids, oxidizing and reducing agents,
Hazardous Polymerization: Will not occur.
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Not established.

HEALTH HAZARD DATA
Recommended Exposure Limits: See Section B.
Acute Effects of Overexposure:
Eye: May produce severe eye and mucous membrane irritation, including superficial corneal opacity, and redness
Skin: May produce moderate skin irritation, including redness, swelling, and burning sensation.
Inhalation: May be moderately irritating to the nose, throat, and mucous membranes. Tearing, salivation,
decreased respiratory rates, difficulty breathing and lethargy may occur with overexposure.
Ingestion: May produce slight muscular weakness.
SUBCHRONIC AND CHRONIC EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE:
Repeated exposure may produce allergic reactions in some individuals characterized by redness, itching, oozing,
crusting and scaling of skin and asthmatic wheezing.
OTHER HEALTH EFFECTS:
Topical application of benzoyl peroxide to mice, previously initiated by exposure to 7,12-dimethylbenz(a) anthracene, promoted both papillomas and carcinomas. Benzoyl peroxide was inactive on the skin of mice as a complete carcinogen or as a tumor initiator.
HEALTH HAZARD CATEGORIES:
FIRST AID AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Eye: Flush eyes with running water for AT LEAST 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
Skin: Wash skin with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure. If breathing becomes labored or irritation develops, seek immediate medical
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical attention.

Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Wear protective equipment and/or garments described in
Section C if exposure conditions warrant. Self-contained breathing apparatus may be needed for large fires or if fire is in confined area. For large fires, evacuate the area and fight fire from a safe distance using
Fire and Explosion Hazards: Benzoyl peroxide will explode at temperatures above 392°F (200°C).
Do not do any fire fighting where an explosion hazard exists. Toxic fumes may be released in a fire involving benzoyl peroxide. Containers of benzoyl peroxide near fire should be cooled with a water spray to prevent contents from reaching decomposition temperature.
I. SPILL, LEAK AND DISPOSAL PROCEDURES
Precautions Required if Material is Released or Spilled:
Evacuate area of all unnecessary personnel. Wear protective equipment and/or garments described in Section C if exposure conditions warrant. Keep out of water sources and sewers. Carefully collect the material and transfer to polyethylene-lined disposal containers. DO NOT ALLOW BENZOYL
PEROXIDE TO DRY OUT; ADD WATER IF NECESSARY.
Waste Disposal (Insure Conformity with all Applicable Disposal Regulations):
Treat or dispose of at a RCRA approved hazardous waste management facility. Care should be taken when treating or disposing of this product. Material may be very reactive. RT-BPO-50
