First-aid measures

General advice: Immediately 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 immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

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.
Specific hazards: harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
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: 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.

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 2 (Kst-value 200 up to 300 bar m s-1)
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect from the effects of light.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-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 required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Chemical stability: The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Dust explosion hazard.
Conditions to avoid: Avoid dust formation. Avoid deposition of dust. Avoid sources of ignition. Avoid electro-static discharge. Avoid light.
Substances to avoid: strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents
Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents
