First-aid measures

Eye contact: Holding the eyelids apart, flush eyes promptly with copious flowing water for at least 20 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.
Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Wash clothing before re-use. Get medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: In case of dust inhalation or breathing fumes released from heated material, remove person to fresh air. Keep him quiet and warm. Apply artificial respiration if necessary and get medical attention immediately.
Ingestion: If swallowed, wash mouth thoroughly with plenty of water and give water to drink. Get medical attention immediately.

NOTE: Never give an unconscious person anything to drink.

Notes to the physician: Material with low toxicity. No specific antidote. Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Material is not combustible. Use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire conditions.
Fire fighting procedure: Cool containers with water spray. In closed stores, provide fire-fighters with self-contained breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode.
Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Will decompose from ca. 284°C releasing poisonous and corrosive fumes of HBr.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Wear respirator, chemical safety goggles, rubber gloves and boots
Methods for cleaning up: Shovel into intact packaging and hold for waste disposal or possible re-use. Avoid raising dust. Ventilate area and wash spill site after material pickup is complete. Avoid access to streams, lakes or ponds.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid bodily contact. Keep containers tightly closed.
Storage: Store in a dry, well-ventilated area. away from incompatible materials (see "materials to avoid" in Stability and reactivity section below).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Ventilation requirements: Ventilation must be sufficient to maintain TLV-TWA below 3 mg/m³, respirable particles, and 10 mg/m³, inhalble particles (ACGIH recommendation for Particles (Insoluble or poorly soluble) Not Otherwise Specified (PNOS).
Personal protective equipment:
- Respiratory protection: Dust respirator
- Hand protection: Protective gloves
- Eye protection: Chemical safety goggles
- Skin and body protection: Body covering clothes and boots
Hygiene measures: Safety shower and eye bath should be provided. Do not eat, smoke or drink where material is handled, processed or stored. Wash hands carefully before eating or smoking.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under normal conditions
Materials to avoid: Oxidizing agents
Conditions to avoid: Heating above decomposition temperature
Hazardous decomposition products: HBr
Hazardous polymerization: Will not occur

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal: Treat the solid waste and packaging waste via an incinerator equipped with an adequate gas cleaning system or send to a controlled landfill. Observe all federal, state and local environmental regulations when disposing of this material. Avoid access to streams, lakes or ponds.
Disposal of Packaging: The bags should be opened and shaken to remove as much of remaining material as possible. After emptying they should be either sent to landfill or for incineration in accordance with local regulations.
