First-aid measures

-After inhalation: Provide fresh air.
-After skin contact: Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.
-After eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of flowing water for 10 to 15 minutes holding eyelids apart. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention.
-After swallowing: In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents: Extinguishing powder, water spray jet. In case of major fire and large quantities: Alcohol resistant foam.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: High power water jet, carbon dioxide (CO2).

-Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.
-Additional information: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow entering drains or surface water. Dispose of waste according to applicable legislation.

Accidental release measures

-Person-related safety precautions: Avoid formation of dust. Wear suitable protective clothing.
-Measures for environmental protection: Do not allow to enter into surface water or drains. If the product contaminates lakes, rivers or sewages, inform competent authorities in accordance with local regulations.
-Measures for cleaning/collecting: Do not use a dry brush as dust clouds can be created. Collect in closed and suitable containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Handling:
- Information for safe handling: Prevent formation of dust.

Storage:
- Store in roofed places at room temperature. Keep/Store only in original container.
- Storage class: 13 (TRGS 510)

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection:
With normal handling, no respiratory personal protection (breathing apparatus) is necessary.
If risk for exceedance of OEL/DNEL, use e.g.:
dust filter-half mask P1 (efficiency 75%)
dust filter-half mask P2 (efficiency 90%)
dust filter-half mask P3 (efficiency 95%)
dust filter-full mask P1 (efficiency 75%)
dust filter-full mask P2 (efficiency 90 %)
dust filter-full mask P3 (efficiency 97.5%)

Hand protection:
Chemical proof protective gloves (EN 374) e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4mm),chloroprene rubber (0.5mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7mm), among others. Due to a large variety of types the manufacturer's instructions should be followed.

Eye protection: Protective glasses with side protection (safety goggles) (e.g. EN 166).

General protective and hygiene measures:
Information-training of the workers and their staff and line managers focused on careful hygiene behaviour. Wearing of gloves and protective clothing is compulsory (efficiency >=90%).

Engineering measures:
Local exhaust ventilation systems (generic LEC (84%) as worst case; higher efficiencies (90-95%) are usual. Cyclones/filters (for minimizing dust emissions) : efficiency: 70-90% (cyclones), 50-80% (dust filters), 85-95% (double stage, cassette filters)
Process enclosure, especially in potentially dusty units.
Dust control: dust and Zn in dust needs to be measured in the workplace air (static or individual) according to national regulations.
Special care for the general establishment and maintenance of a clean working environment by e.g.: Cleaning of process equipment and workshop.
Storage of packaged Zn product in dedicated zones.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable when applying the recommended regulations for storage and handling.
Hazardous reactions: No hazardous reactions when stored and handled according to instructions.
Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be dumped or incinerated in accordance with local regulations. Check for possible recycling.
Contaminated packages must be completely emptied and can be re-used following proper cleaning.
Handle contaminated packages in the same way as the substance itself.
Packing which cannot be properly cleaned must be disposed of.
