First-aid measures

Most important symptoms and effects
Dust may be irritating to the respiratory tract and cause symptoms of bronchitis.
Description of first aid measures
General
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Oxygen may additionally be given, by trained
personnel, if it is available. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Skin
Flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if irritation
develops and persists. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean or destroy contaminated shoes.
Eye
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water. If easy to do, contact lenses should be removed during the
flushing, by trained personnel. Occasionally hold the eyelids apart during the flushing to ensure rinsing the
entire surface of the eye and lids with water. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.
Ingestion
Call a physician or a poison control center immediately. Induce vomiting only if directed by medical personnel.
The patient should lie on their left side while vomiting to reduce the risk of aspiration. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious or convulsing person.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
There are no data available that address medical conditions that are generally recognized as being aggravated by
exposure to this material.
Attending physician should treat exposed patients symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Water, foam, sand, dry chemical powder, CO2.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
none known.
Hazardous decomposition / combustion products
CO2, Carbon monoxide.
nitrous gases (NOx).
Protective equipment
Firefighters must wear fire resistant protective equipment. Wear approved respirator and protective gloves.
Other information
Evacuate all non-essential personnel. Treat as an oil fire. Cool closed containers with water. Water used to extinguish
a fire should not be allowed to enter the drainage system or water courses. After a fire, ventilate thoroughly the area
and soak with water, clean the walls and metallic surfaces.
Fire and explosion hazard
In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Do not breathe dust. For personal protection see Section 8.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Stop leakage if possible. Sweep up and put it into a container for disposal. Avoid dust generation. Flush surroundings
with large amounts of water and soap.
Other information
Evacuate personnel to safe area.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
When using do not eat, drink or smoke. The usual precautions for handling chemicals should be observed. Avoid
Incompatible materials (See Section 10).
Fire and explosion prevention
Avoid dust generation.
Conditions for safe storage
Store in accordance with local/national regulations. For maximum quality store below 25 °C / 77 °F.
