- Most important symptoms and effects: No further relevant information available.
Skin: After contact with this substance reddening and irritation of skin may occur.
Eyes: Irritation. Dust may irritate eyes mechanically.
Hazards and systemic effects: Strong irritating effect after breathing of dust and contact with eyes.
Possible routes of intake: Intake by swallowing or inhalation of dust.
Chronic effects: No chronic effects known.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Water haze, Alcohol resistant foam, Fire-extinguishing powder, Carbon dioxide
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: No restriction in large fires.
- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: High risk of dust explosions! In case of fire, the following can be released: Nitrogen oxides (NOx) Carbon monoxide (CO) Hydrogen chloride (HCl) Chlorine (Cl2)
- Advice for fire fighter: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device. Chemical resistant protective suit. Under the protective suit a fire protective suit according to EN 469 should be applied.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Wear protective clothing.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Do not breathe dust.
Access only for trained personnel with personal protective equipment.
Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.
Remove persons from danger area.
Keep away unprotected persons.
Avoid formation of dust
- Environmental precautions:
Keep contaminated washing water and dispose of appropriately.
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Pick up mechanically. If formation of dust cannot be avoided use respiratory filter device. Possible formation of explosive dust/air mixtures.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: Empty containers must not be used for other products. Nitrogen blanketing required for large scale operations with this compound due to low minimum ignition energy. Contaminated protective equipment should be cleaned before taking it off. Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace. Fill only in dedicated and assigned containers. Keep containers tightly sealed.
Information about fire - and explosion protection: High risk of dust explosions!
- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles: Store in a dry location, keep away from humidity. Store in a cool location.
Corrosion of metals: Test method according to CLP is not applicable (solid material at 55°C). It should generally be borne in mind that there is a possibility of corrosion on contact with this material. Resistance should be checked in each individual case.
Information about storage in one common storage facility: Do not store together with alkalis (caustic solutions). Store away from alcohols. Store away from flammable substances. Store away from oxidising agents.
Maximum storage temperature: approx. +30 °C (relevant for quality reasons)
Acceptable storage time: No data available.
