General advice: Immediately remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled: Fresh air. Seek medical attention if necessary.
On skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and water, rinse abundantly.
On contact with eyes: Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Check breathing and pulse. Place victim in the recovery position, cover and keep warm. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Seek medical attention. Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth if the victim is unconscious or having convulsions. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible)
Note to physician:
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: water spray
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water jet
Specific hazards: carbon oxides
Special protective equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information: The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up: Place into appropriately labeled waste containers.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Avoid dust formation. Avoid direct contact with water. Avoid contact with water vapour.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
7757-82-6: sodium sulphate
7778-80-5: potassium sulphate

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if dusts are formed.
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing. Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
light protective clothing
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid: Avoid extreme temperatures.
Substances to avoid: strong bases, oxidizing agents
Hazardous reactions: The product may contain explosive fine dust or such dust may be produced by abrasion during transport or product transfer.
