First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.
The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see section 2) and/or
in section 11.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment:

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
carbon dioxide
Additional information:
Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of
fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated
extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface
waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Information regarding exposure

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Dust explosion class: Dust explosion class 1 (Kst-value >0 up to 200 bar m s-1).

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.
Specific end use(s)
For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 the advice mentioned in this section 7 is to be

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with workplace control parameters
DUST
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium
efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work
clothing is recommended.
