First-aid measures

If inhaled (Dust inhalation) : Move to fresh air, blow nose, oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of persistent problems : consult a doctor.
In case of skin contact : Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water.
In case of eye contact : Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult an ophthalmologist.
If swallowed : In case of problems : Consult a doctor.
Protection of first-aiders : Dust : In case of insufficient ventilation, wear a suitable respiratory equipment and protective suit.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Water spray
Specific hazards : Thermal decomposition giving toxic and corrosive products : nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Specific methods : In case of fire nearby, remove the bags.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : Wear a dust mask and safety glasses/goggles if necessary. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of dust. Remove all sources of ignition.
Environmental precautions : Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains.
Recovery : Shovel into suitable container for disposal. Sweep up to prevent slipping hazard. No sparking tools should be used.
After cleaning, flush away traces with water. Recover waste water for processing later.

Elimination : Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Solid. DUST FORMING, forming EXPLOSIVE mixtures with air(In the presence of
an ignition source). Slightly irritating.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery and at places where dust can be generated. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide water
supplies near the point of use. Provide electrical earthing of equipment.


Safe handling advice:
Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Avoid dust formation. In case of dust formation, wear a dust mask. Avoid
accumulation of static charges during transfers in metallic systems. Avoid charging as a dust shower – risk of product flammability. Keep well
away from naked flames.


Hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid breathing dust. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.
