First-aid measures

Ingestion: No specific first aid required
Inhalation:No specific first aid required
Skin: Remove contaminated clothing, and wash affected areas thoroughly with water. If skin irritation or rash occurs:Get medical advice.attention. Show label if possible.
Eyes: Irrigate eyeball thoroughly with water for at least 10 minutes. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.
Most important symptoms and affects, both acute/delayed: Skin contact :Rash, Eye contact: Redness.
Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: No special requirements.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Any, type to be selected according to material in the immediate neighbourhood
Special risks: Non-flammable. May oxidize to Nickel Oxide if exposed to high temperatures within a fire. Keep containers cool with water spray.
Special protective equipment for fire fighting: None needed. Wear protective equipment if required for other materials within the immediate vicinity

Accidental release measures

Person related precautionary measures: Avoid generation of dusty atmospheres. Do not inhale dusts.Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Use personal protective equipment as required. Wash hands, and face thoroughly after handling.
Environmental protection measures: No specific measures needed.
Procedures for cleaning/absorption: Pick up and replace in original container. Nickel containing material is normally collected to recover nickel values.

Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe Handling: Prevent the generation of inhalable dusts e.g. by the use of suitable ventilation. Do not inhale dusts. Wear appropriate nationally approved respirators if handling is likely to cause the concentration limits of airborne nickel to exceed the locally prescribed exposure limits. Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace.
Conditions for Safe Storage: Keep in the container supplied, and keep the container closed when not in use. Local regulations should be followed regarding the storage of this product.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Nickel: TLV (mg/m3) = 1.5 (inhalable particle size fraction); based on Threshold Limit Values of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (2008); Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Nickel: WEL (mg/m3) = 0.5; based on Maximum Exposure Limit of the Health and Safety Executive in the U.K. in EH40/00; Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.

Occupational exposure controls:
As supplied this product does not pose a health hazard due to inhalation. Mechanical extraction Ventilation may be required if user operations change it to other physical or chemical forms, whether as end products, intermediates or fugitive emissions, which are inhalable. Maintain airborne nickel levels as low as possible.
Personal Protective Equipment
Respiratory protection: If required, use an approved respirator with particulate filters.
Eye protection: None
Hand and skin protection: Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves, which should be selected specifically for the working place, dependent on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous material (overalls and leather/rubber gloves). Wash skin thoroughly after handling and before eating, drinking or smoking. change contaminated clothing frequently. Launder clothing and gloves as needed. Use of skin-protective barrier cream advised.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable under normal conditions.
Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Stable under normal conditions.
Conditions to avoid: This product can react vigorously with acids to liberate hydrogen, which can form explosive mixtures with air. Under special conditions nickel can react with carbon monoxide in reducing atmospheres to form nickel carbonyl, Ni(CO)4, a toxic gas. Metal powders when heated in reducing atmospheres may become pyrophoric.
Incompatible materials: Acids, strong oxidising agents.
Hazardous Decomposition Product(s): Nickel carbonyl gas.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods: Recover or recycle if possible. Dispose of contents in accordance with local, state or national legislation.
