Potassium Cyanide (151-50-8)
White amorphous lumps or a crystalline mass.
Apply FAST-ACT powder to fully cover liquid spill and absorb excess liquid.
Various depending on form.
Primary Mechanism Type
Various depending if in solution. Compound mixed with MgO, TiO2, Mg(OH)2
Reaction Rate (Slower to Faster)
Reaction Rate: 1
*Treatment: FAST-ACT is not for use on solid materials. Vapor supression by dispensing a FAST-ACT pressurized cylinder. For aqueous solutions of cyanide, apply excess FAST-ACT powder.
FAST-ACT Application Methods:
A. For trace liquid chemical contamination, apply FAST-ACT Powder from either a shaker or pail to the surface to fully absorb the compounds. Apply powder forming a ring around the hazard and then shake the powder directly onto hazard to thoroughly cover the liquid. Carefully Agitate all the powder to ensure all liquid has been adsorbed.
B. Alternatively, for trace contamination on a surface, you can utilize a FAST-ACT Decon Mitt. Tear packet at the notch and remove the FAST-ACT Decon Mitt. Unfold mitt and insert hand, tightening the strap. Decontaminate surface by rubbing with pad side to remove liquid contamination. Shake and pat the mitt to release powder from the mitt to the surface. If liquid contamination is still present or suspected, repeat process with a new FAST-ACT Decon Mitt.
C. For liquid contamination, directly apply the FAST-ACT Powder from a Shaker or Pail to the liquid to fully absorb the compound ensuring no liquid chemical remains. Apply powder forming a ring around the hazard and then shake the powder directly onto hazard to thoroughly cover the liquid. Carefully agitate all the powder to ensure all liquid has been adsorbed.
