Chemical reactivity hazards are posed by self-reacting
materials such as organic peroxides, pyrophoric material, and polymerizing monomers as well
as uncontrolled chemical interactions (e.g.,incompatibilities) even between substances that may
not be generally considered reactive. Self-reacting materials can pose hazard by decomposing,
polymerizing or rearranging in an uncontrolled manner, even without being combined with other
materials. Chemical interactions have the potential for loss or injury consequences. Situations
such as a temporary loss of ignition, cooling systems, or electricity can result in uncontrolled
reactions. Make sure that you're fully aware of nature of the chemicals used, reaction between
chemicals, and factors (e.g. changing concentration, temperature, etc.) that may result in
uncontrolled reactions. Proper control methods must be in place for chemical reactivity hazards.
