Understanding the EH&S Dangers of Sodium Azide

Posted by Steve Barone on Thu, Oct 24, 2013

Sodium azide can be an extreme hazard when released into a facility’s plumbing infrastructure.

Buildup of sodium azide commonly occurs in pipe fittings, threading, and p-traps. Sodium azide has the potential to react with metals commonly found in the plumbing infrastructure, such as copper and lead, to form insoluble metallic azides – a highly explosive and shock sensitive compound.
