Potential Acute Health Effects Very hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of eye contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation. Slightly hazardous in case
of skin contact (permeator). Corrosive to eyes and skin. The amount of tissue damage depends on length of contact. Eye
contact can result in corneal damage or blindness. Skin contact can produce inflammation and blistering. Inhalation of dust
will produce irritation to gastro-intestinal or respiratory tract, characterized by burning, sneezing and coughing. Severe overexposure can produce lung damage, choking, unconsciousness or death. Prolonged exposure may result in skin burns and
ulcerations. Over-exposure by inhalation may cause respiratory irritation. Inflammation of the eye is characterized by redness,
watering, and itching. Skin inflammation is characterized by itching, scaling, reddening, or, occasionally, blistering.
Potential Chronic Health Effects CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available. TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available.DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available. The substance is toxic to lungs. Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated exposure of the eyes to a low level of dust can produce eye irritation. Repeated skin exposure can produce local skin destruction, or dermatitis. Repeated inhalation of dust can produce varying degree of respiratory irritation or lung damage.
Eye Contact Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids
open. Cold water may be used. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention.

Corrosionpedia explains Calcium hypochlorite

This product is a white or grayish-white granular powdered hermetically sealed once a unpleasant smell, which is corrosive and toxic. When calcium hypochlorite is dissolved in water, it gives off heat and nascent oxygen. When it reacts gone organic substances and oils, it brings approximately combustion because of violent decomposition.

This product is more stable than sodium hypochlorite and contains sophisticated chlorine captivation (30-75%). Like sodium hypochlorite, calcium hypochlorite with increases water pH, in view of that it is advised to acidify the water during the disinfection process.

All forms of calcium hypochlorite contain insoluble residues that form sediments in the real. It is important to eliminate the sediment by now injecting the calcium hypochlorite unlimited into a treated water tank to avoid clogging.

This product is generally sold as 68% calcium hypochlorite join together subsequent to calcium chloride and new salts. It is used as a sanitizer in outside swimming pools. The calcium content hardens the water and tends to clog happening filters; for that defense, some products containing calcium hypochlorite plus contain adjacent to-scaling agents.

Localized corrosion such as pitting and crevice corrosion of stainless steels can occur in the presence of calcium hypochlorite.

This product is best kept in a cool temperate place away from any organic material. It is known to undergo self-heating and rapid decomposition in the middle of the forgive of toxic chlorine gas, which is intensely corrosive.
