Processing and Safety Guidelines

GP-678 reacts with water, alcohols, or other reactive hydrogen compounds to liberate hydrogen gas. Since the hydrogen is flammable and also will cause pressure build up in closed containers, use all proper precautions when handling these products. Alkaline materials will cause a rapid release of hydrogen when in contact with GP-678, and must be avoided. GP-678 may cause skin irritation. Consult Safety Data Sheet for additional safety information.
