persists, seek medical advice.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash immediately with plenty of water. If irritation persists, get medical advice/attention. Wash
contaminated clothing before using it again.
INHALATION: Remove to open air. In the event of breathing difficulties, get medical advice/attention immediately.
INGESTION: Get medical advice/attention. Induce vomiting only if indicated by the doctor. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person, unless authorised by a doctor.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed.
For symptoms and effects caused by the contained substances, see chap. 11.

Information not available.

Fire-fighting measures

SECTION 5. Firefighting measures.
5.1. Extinguishing media.
SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING EQUIPMENT
The extinguishing equipment should be of the conventional kind: carbon dioxide, foam, powder and water spray.
UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING EQUIPMENT
None in particular.
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture.
HAZARDS CAUSED BY EXPOSURE IN THE EVENT OF FIRE
Do not breathe combustion products. The product is combustible and, when the powder is released into the air in sufficient concentrations and
in the presence of a source of ignition, it can create explosive mixtures with air. Fires may start or get worse by leakage of the solid product
from the container, when it reaches high temperatures or through contact with sources of ignition.
5.3. Advice for firefighters.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Use jets of water to cool the containers to prevent product decomposition and the development of substances potentially hazardous for health.
Always wear full fire prevention gear. Collect extinguishing water to prevent it from draining into the sewer system. Dispose of contaminated
water used for extinction and the remains of the fire according to applicable regulations.
SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE-FIGHTERS
Normal fire fighting clothing i.e. fire kit (BS EN 469), gloves (BS EN 659) and boots (HO specification A29 and A30) in combination with
self-contained open circuit positive pressure compressed air breathing apparatus (BS EN 137).

Accidental release measures

SECTION 6. Accidental release measures.
6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures.
If there are no contraindications, spray powder with water to prevent the formation of dust. Avoid breathing vapours/mists/gases.
Wear suitable protective equipment (including personal protective equipment referred to under Section 8 of the safety data sheet) to prevent
any contamination of skin, eyes and personal clothing. These indications apply for both processing staff and those involved in emergency
procedures.
6.2. Environmental precautions.
The product must not penetrate into the sewer system or come into contact with surface water or ground water.
6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up.
Use spark-proof mechanical equipment to collect the leaked product and place it in containers for recovery or disposal. If there are no
contraindications, use jets of water to eliminate product residues.
Make sure the leakage site is well aired. Check incompatibility for container material in section 7. Contaminated material should be disposed
of in compliance with the provisions set forth in point 13.
6.4. Reference to other sections.
Any information on personal protection and disposal is given in sections 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

SECTION 7. Handling and storage.
7.1. Precautions for safe handling.
Before handling the product, consult all the other sections of this material safety data sheet. Avoid leakage of the product into the
environment. Do not eat, drink or smoke during use. Remove any contaminated clothes and personal protective equipment before entering
places in which people eat.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities.
Store only in the original container. Store the containers sealed, in a well ventilated place, away from direct sunlight. Keep containers away
from any incompatible materials, see section 10 for details.
7.3. Specific end use(s).
Information not available.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Transported isolated intermediate used under SCC.

SECTION 8. Exposure controls/personal protection.
8.1. Control parameters.
During the risk assessment process, it is essential to take into consideration the ACGIH occupational exposure levels for inert particulate
otherwise classified (PNOC respirable fraction: 3 mg/m3; PNOC inhalable fraction: 10 mg/m3). For values above these limits, use a P type
filter, whose class (1, 2 or 3) must be chosen according to the outcome of risk assessment.
8.2. Exposure controls.
As the use of adequate technical equipment must always take priority over personal protective equipment, make sure that the workplace is
well aired through effective local aspiration. Personal protective equipment must be CE marked, showing that it complies with applicable
standards.
Provide an emergency shower with face and eye wash station.
Exposure levels must be kept as low as possible to avoid significant build-up in the organism. Manage personal protective equipment so as to
guarantee maximum protection (e.g. reduction in replacement times).
HAND PROTECTION
In the case of prolonged contact with the product, protect the hands with penetration-resistant work gloves (see standard EN 374).
Work glove material must be chosen according to the use process and the products that may form. Latex gloves may cause sensitivity
reactions.
SKIN PROTECTION
Wear category III professional long-sleeved overalls and safety footwear (see Directive 89/686/EEC and standard EN ISO 20344). Wash body
with soap and water after removing protective clothing.
EYE PROTECTION
Wear airtight protective goggles (see standard EN 166).
In the presence of risks of exposure to splashes or squirts during work, adequate mouth, nose and eye protection should be used to prevent
accidental absorption.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Use a type P filtering facemask (see standard EN 149) or equivalent device, whose class (1, 2 or 3) and effective need, must be defined
according to the outcome of risk assessment.
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS.
The emissions generated by manufacturing processes, including those generated by ventilation equipment, should be checked to ensure
compliance with environmental standards.

Stability and reactivity

SECTION 10. Stability and reactivity.
10.1. Reactivity.
There are no particular risks of reaction with other substances in normal conditions of use.
10.2. Chemical stability.

10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions.
No hazardous reactions are foreseeable in normal conditions of use and storage.
10.4. Conditions to avoid.
None in particular. However the usual precautions used for chemical products should be respected.
10.5. Incompatible materials.
Information not available.
10.6. Hazardous decomposition products.
Information not available.

Disposal considerations

SECTION 13. Disposal considerations.
13.1. Waste treatment methods.
Reuse, when possible. Product residues should be considered special hazardous waste. The hazard level of waste containing this product
should be evaluated according to applicable regulations.
Disposal must be performed through an authorised waste management firm, in compliance with national and local regulations.
CONTAMINATED PACKAGING
Contaminated packaging must be recovered or disposed of in compliance with national waste management regulations.
