Safety Description?of Sodium alginate (CAS NO.9005-38-3): 24/25?
S24/25: Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Poison by intravenous and intraperitoneal routes. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Na2O.

Fire Potential
It consists chiefly of sodium salt of alginic acid, polyuronic acid composed of beta D-mannuronic acid residues linked so that carboxyl group of each unit is free while aldehyde group is shielded by glycosidic linkage.
All derivatives of alginic acid ... designated by the generic term algin. ... Most commonly used algin compound is sodium alginate ... often used interchangeably.
Trade names include Alginate, SFC; Cecalgum, Sanofi; Dialgin, Diamalt; Keltex, Kelco; Lamitex, Protan; Manutex, Kelco.
Dental alginates are powder mixtures with the following composition: sodium alginate (10 ? 20 wt %), calcium sulfate (10 wt %), trisodium phosphate (1 ? 4 wt %), diatomite (70 ? 80 wt %), color and flavor (1 ? 2 wt %).
Exposure Standards and Regulations
Substance added directly to human food affirmed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
Sodium alginate used as a stabilizer in animal drugs, feeds, and related products is generally recognized as safe when used in accordance with good manufacturing or feeding practice.

Safety Statements:24/25-36-26
24/25:Avoid contact with skin and eyes
36:Wear suitable protective clothing
26:In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice

Reported in EPA TSCA Inventory.


Disposal Methods
SRP: The most favorable course of action is to use an alternative chemical product with less inherent propensity for occupational exposure or environmental contamination. Recycle any unused portion of the material for its approved use or return it to the manufacturer or supplier. Ultimate disposal of the chemical must consider: the material's impact on air quality; potential migration in soil or water; effects on animal, aquatic, and plant life; and conformance with environmental and public health regulations.
Reach Info
Globally, no enterprise has officially registered the substance REACH.
