1 SAFETY DATA SHEET Creation Date 29-Apr-2010 Revision Number 3 Product Name 1. Identification Calcium chloride hexahydrate Cat No. : C CAS-No Synonyms Calcium dichloride; Calcium dichloride hexahydrate Recommended Use Uses advised against Laboratory chemicals. Not for food, drug, pesticide or biocidal product use Details of the supplier of the safety data sheet Company Fisher Scientific One Reagent Lane Fair Lawn, NJ Tel: (201) Emergency Telephone Number CHEMTRECÒ, Inside the USA: CHEMTRECÒ, Outside the USA: Hazard(s) identification Classification This chemical is considered hazardous by the 2012 OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR ) Serious Eye Damage/Eye Irritation Category 2 Label Elements Signal Word Warning Hazard Statements Causes serious eye irritation Precautionary Statements Prevention Wash face, hands and any exposed skin thoroughly after handling Wear eye/face protection Page 1 / 6

2 Eyes IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention Disposal Dispose of contents/container to an approved waste disposal plant Hazards not otherwise classified (HNOC) None identified 3. Composition/Information on Ingredients Component CAS-No Weight % Calcium chloride, hexahydrate First-aid measures Eye Contact Skin Contact Inhalation Ingestion Most important symptoms and effects Notes to Physician Unsuitable Extinguishing Media Flash Point Method - Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Move to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Do not induce vomiting. Obtain medical attention.. Treat symptomatically 5. Fire-fighting measures Autoignition Temperature Explosion Limits Upper Lower Sensitivity to Mechanical Impact Sensitivity to Static Discharge Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapors. Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Hazardous Combustion Products Hydrogen chloride gas Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent) and full protective gear.

3 Personal Precautions Environmental Precautions 6. Accidental release measures Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid release to the environment. Methods for Containment and Clean Sweep up or vacuum up spillage and collect in suitable container for disposal. Avoid dust Up formation. Handling Storage Exposure Guidelines 7. Handling and storage Wear personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Protect from moisture. Keep refrigerated. 8. Exposure controls / personal protection This product does not contain any hazardous materials with occupational exposure limitsestablished by the region specific regulatory bodies. Engineering Measures Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Personal Protective Equipment Eye/face Protection Skin and body protection Respiratory Protection Hygiene Measures Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR or European Standard EN166. Wear appropriate protective gloves and clothing to prevent skin exposure. No protective equipment is needed under normal use conditions. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. 9.

5 Ecotoxicity Do not empty into drains. Persistence and Degradability Bioaccumulation/ Accumulation Mobility Waste Disposal Methods DOT TDG IATA IMDG/IMO Soluble in water Persistence is unlikely based on information available.. Will likely be mobile in the environment due to its water solubility. 13. Disposal considerations Chemical waste generators must determine whether a discarded chemical is classified as a hazardous waste. Chemical waste generators must also consult local, regional, and national hazardous waste regulations to ensure complete and accurate classification. 14. Transport information 15.
