What is the name of the chemical?
The name of my chemical is "Sapphex". I decided on this name by simply messing around with different sounds.
What elements does your chemical contain?
Sapphex was designed as the latest in biological and nuclear warfare development, so it contains the most dangerous elements in the world including: Plutonium, mercury, arsenic, rubidium, and francium. There is also sulphur in this chemical which makes it very smelly.
What is the chemical used for?
The chemical Sapphex was developed as a new biological and nuclear warfare chemical to add to bombs to make them even more dangerous than before.
What are the hazards of this chemical in contact with skin, inhalation, or both?
If not handled properly, radiation poisoning can develop from the plutonium and other dangerous elements inside of the chemical. When coming in contact with organic matter, it is quite corrosive and if someone were to inhale the fumes they could develop a deadly sickness within days. It is radioactive, corrosive, and deadly.
Is the chemical flammable?
Yes, Sapphex is extremely flammable and any heat over 150 degrees fahrenheit will cause it to explode.
What happens if there is a chemical accident with your chosen chemical?
If there is a chemical accident, everyone must leave the room immediately and the affected must be treated. Also it is required that you call the Nuclear Chemical clean up company to get rid of the radiation.
What should you do if you or someone else is accidently overexposed to this chemical?
You should immediately wash the person with water and the eyes if it has splashed there for 20 minutes. As soon as you have washed the affected areas thoroughly seek immediate doctor's assistance to treat for radiation poisoning and burns. A resource in the classroom is the MSDS you can find in a large book. Your facilitator should have this for every chemical in the work place.
Are there reporting requirements to any local or government agencies if there is an accidental over exposure
Yes, you are required to contact the local hospital to treat the people that are affected and then you are required to call the government chemical spill clean up team for clean up of the radioactive chemical.
NFPA Diamond Stats and Description
The diamond above is known as the NFPA diamond and is used on the MSDS sheets on all chemicals. Each box is rated on a scale of 0-4, 0 being the least dangerous and 4 being the most dangerous. The colors blue, red/orange, and yellow all symbolize something. Blue represents health, and as you can see this chemical poses a huge health risk. Orange or red represents flammability and the 3 shows that is quite flammable. The yellow represents reactivity and as you can see this chemical is also very reactive.
