16. Other Information

Recommended use: Desiccant adsorbent

NFPA Hazard codes:

Health: 1 Fire: 0  Reactivity: 0  Special: 0

HMIS III rating

Health: 1 Flammability: 0  Physical Hazard: 0

NFPA and HMIS use a numbering scale ranging from 0 to 4 to indicate the degree of hazard. A value of zero means that the substance possesses essentially no hazard; a rating of four indicates extreme danger. Although similar, the two rating systems are intended for different purposes, and use different criteria. The NFPA system was developed to provide an on-the-spot alert to the hazards of a material, and their severity, to emergency responders. The HMIS system was designed to communicate workplace hazard information to employees who handle hazardous chemicals.
