Interaction of Hazardous Materials

Interaction of Hazardous Materials


With the current style of life, there are high chances that most of the homestead goods should be Avoided as they are dangerous to both human and environment. The danger is posed by the fact that they turn into a dangerous explosion or compound if they are mixed as their reaction may risk the occupant’s health and lives. Mixing ammonia with bleach is a common scenario. A person should be careful to learn the product formed by the constituents of the two chemicals (Hatayama, 1980).

Choosing a Base and another Household Chemical

Ammonia and Chlorine bleach (Sodium hypochlorite) chemicals should never be mixed.  The two goods include Dave beauty soap whose nature is alkaline with Trac Tile cleaner which possesses hydrochloric acid chemical (Di, Li-Xia, Ze-Ming, Biao-Bing & Xi, 2014).

Product’s Chemical Formation

Chemical formation of trac tile cleaner involves combining potassium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. Due to the soap’s large number of unutilized acidic molecules left, the soap is more of an acid. However, Dave beauty soap may cause soles and turn skin into pale especially to both skinned individuals and children due to its alkaline nature as their ph is 8.4.

The Dave beauty soap is formed through a chemical combination of ammonia and fatty acids. There exist severe effects from soap in case they are mixed without prior knowledge, with certain goods. For instance, chloroform is formed in case of mixing bleach with alcohol. However, Acetone formation is hinted by this incident. There are respiratory system complications caused by the dangerous chemical fumes brought about by mixing bleach with ammonia (Di, Li-Xia, Ze-Ming, Biao-Bing & Xi, 2014). The heat besides chlorine which is produced by the mixture of acidic soap and Sure Trac Tile cleaner affects discharge system by damaging the PVC pipes. The heat may result in the rapture of the PVC pipes due to the accumulated pressure. While responding to such an emergency resulting from a chemical explosion, the people assigned should understand the chemical reactions and how to monitor or control them. Therefore, the right protective gear against heat and fumes should be worn to reduce their hinderances (Hatayama, 1980).

The SDS compatibility and information charts are essential tools which enhance health and occupational safety, product stewardship and helps in handling pills by aiding in procedure remembrance (Di, Li-Xia, Ze-Ming, Biao-Bing & Xi, 2014). The comparability chart also helps to predict the mode of reaction expected upon mixing different chemicals and the actions to bring such an occurrence into control.
