Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Use good personal hygiene practices Guard against dust accumulation of this material. Avoid
breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Wear personal protective equipment. Do not use in
areas without adequate ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling.
"Empty" containers retain product residue (liquid or vapour) and can be dangerous. Do not re-use
empty containers.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of the SDS). Guard against dust
accumulation of this material. Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Keep containers tightly
closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Prevent electrostatic charge build-up by using
common bonding and grounding techniques. Use care in handling/storage.Appropriate engineering

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should
be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other
engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure
limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level. High concentration
of airborne dust may form explosive mixture with air. Ensure that good housekeeping practices are
followed as well as applicable guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association [NFPA]
654, "Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions from the Manufacturing., Processing, and Handling of
Combustible Particulate Solids". Ventilation should be sufficient to effectively remove, and prevent
buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or fumes that may be generated during handling or thermal
processing. In order to ensure appropriate electrical safety practices are followed, consult
applicable standards. These may include guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association
[NFPA] 70, "The National Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended Practice for the
Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical
Installations in Chemical Process Areas ". NOTE: since this material's vapors, dust or fumes can
form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that any potential areas where explosions may occur are
designed to minimize potential damage. For recommendations to prevent such explosions and
associated damage, consult applicable guidelines such as NFPA 69, "Standard on Explosion
Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting Deflagrations".

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General information
Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid contact with skin.

Eye/face protection
Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If splashes are likely to occur, wear: Face-shield.
Eye wash fountain is recommended.

Skin protection
- Hand protection
Wear protective gloves.

- Other
Avoid contact with the skin. Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment. Use a positive-pressure
air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not
known, or any other circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate
protection. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Dust safety masks are recommended
when the dust concentration is more than 10 mg/m3. If engineering controls do not maintain
airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable
level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must
be worn.

Thermal hazards
Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.

Hygiene measures
Do not breathe dust. Wash hands after handling and before eating. Handle in accordance with good
industrial hygiene and safety practices.

Environmental exposure controls
Contain spills and prevent releases and observe national regulations on emissions. Handle in
accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.
