First-aid measures

In case of inhalation
- Move to fresh air.
- Get medical attention immediately if symptoms occur.

In case of skin contact
- Use appropriate protective equipment when treating a contaminated person.

In case of eye contact
- Rinse with running water whilst keeping the eyes wide open.

In case of ingestion
- Do NOT induce vomiting.
- Rinse mouth with water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Effects
- No hazards to be specially mentioned.
- Inhalation of dust may cause shortness of breath, tightness of the chest, a sore throat and cough.
- Risk of nose bleeding
- Irritating to mucous membranes
Repeated or prolonged exposure
- Contact with dust can cause mechanical irritation or drying of the skin.
- Dust contact with the eyes can lead to mechanical irritation.
- Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
- Mechanical irritation from the particulates generated by the product.
Symptoms
- At high concentrations:
- slight irritation
- Cough
- Redness
- Redness of the conjunctiva

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed Notes to physician
- When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
- Water spray
- Foam
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Multi-purpose powders

Unsuitable extinguishing media
- High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- Risk of dust explosion.
- Avoid generating dust; fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition source is a potential dust explosion hazard.
- Under fire conditions:
- Will burn
- On combustion, toxic gases are released.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
- In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Personal protective equipment comprising: suitable protective gloves, safety goggles and protective clothing
- For further information refer to section 8 "Exposure controls/personal protection".

Specific fire fighting methods
- Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Further information
- Standard procedure for chemical fires.
- Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
- Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Where exposure level is not known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator.
- Where exposure level is known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure.
- For further information refer to section 8 "Exposure controls/personal protection".

Environmental precautions
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
- Contain the spilled material by bunding.
- Do not let product enter drains.
- Do not allow uncontrolled discharge of product into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
- Stop leak if safe to do so.
- Avoid dust formation.
- Dust deposits should not be allowed to accumulate on surfaces, as these may form an explosive mixture if they are released into the atmosphere in sufficient concentration.
- Sweep up and shovel into suitable containers for disposal.
- Keep in properly labelled containers.
- Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.
- After cleaning, flush away traces with water.
- Recover the cleaning water for subsequent disposal.
- Decontaminate tools, equipment and personal protective equipment in a segregated area.
- Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
- Never return spills in original containers for re-use.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
- Routine housekeeping should be instituted to ensure that dusts do not accumulate on surfaces.
- Dry powders can build static electricity charges when subjected to the friction of transfer and mixing operations.
- Provide adequate precautions, such as electrical grounding and bonding, or inert atmospheres.

Hygiene measures
- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
- Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
- When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
- Eye wash bottles or eye wash stations in compliance with applicable standards.

Dust explosion class
- St3

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Technical measures/Storage conditions
- Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels Recommended storage temperature: <= 25 °C
- Keep in a dry, cool place.
- Keep away from direct sunlight.
- To guarantee the quality and properties of the product keep according to Storage temperature and conditions.
