First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation :
Move exposed person to fresh air. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained
breathing apparatus. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie,
belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept
under medical surveillance for 48 hours.

Ingestion:
Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Skin contact:
Wash skin immediately with plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms appear. Wash
clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to
rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazards from the substance or mixture: Fine dust clouds may form explosive mixtures with air.
Hazardous combustion products: Decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides
nitrogen oxides
sulfur oxides
Advice for firefighters
Special precautions for fire-fighters:
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal
risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers
cool. This material is toxic to aquatic organisms. Fire water contaminated with this material must be contained and prevented from being discharged
to any waterway, sewer or drain.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all ignition sources. No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing dust. Provide
adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8 of MSDS).

Environmental precautions:
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has
caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic
environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Small spill:
Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Use spark-proof tools and
explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill:
Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Use sparkproof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Note: see Section 1 of MSDS for emergency contact information and Section 13 of MSDS for waste disposal.

Reference to other sections:
See Section 1 of MSDSfor emergency contact information.
See Section 8 of MSDS for information on appropriate personal protective equipment.
See Section 13 of MSDS for additional waste treatment information.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8 of MSDS). Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe dust. Do not ingest. Avoid release to the environment. Avoid the creation of dust when handling and avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or flame). Prevent dust accumulation. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Electrical equipment and lighting should be protected to appropriate standards to prevent dust coming into contact with hot surfaces, sparks or other ignition sources. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a
dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see Section 10 of MSDS) and food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources.
Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental.
