First-aid measures

SWALLOWED
-IF SWALLOWED, REFER FOR MEDICAL ATTENTION, WHERE POSSIBLE, WITHOUT DELAY.
-For advice, contact a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.
-Urgent hospital treatment is likely to be needed.
-In the mean time, qualified first-aid personnel should treat the patient following observation and employing
-supportive measures as indicated by the patient's condition.

EYE
-If this product comes in contact with the eyes
-Wash out immediately with fresh running water.
-Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by
-occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.
-Seek medical attention without delay; if pain persists or recurs seek medical attention.
-Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.

SKIN
-If skin contact occurs
-Immediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear.
-Flush skin and hair with running water (and soap if available).
-Seek medical attention in event of irritation.

INHALED
-If fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
-Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
-Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating
first aid procedures.
-Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device,
or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary.

NOTES TO PHYSICIAN
-for poisons (where specific treatment regime is absent)

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
-Foam.
-Dry chemical powder.
-BCF (where regulations permit).
-Carbon dioxide.

FIRE FIGHTING
-Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard.
-Wear breathing apparatus plus protective gloves.
-Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses.
-Use water delivered as a fine spray to control fire and cool adjacent area.

GENERAL FIRE HAZARDS/HAZARDOUS COMBUSTIBLE PRODUCTS
-Combustible solid which burns but propagates flame with difficulty; it is estimated that most organic dusts are
combustible (circa 70%) - according to the circumstances under which the combustion process occurs, such
materials may cause fires and / or dust explosions.
-Avoid generating dust, particularly clouds of dust in a confined or unventilated space as dusts may form an
explosive mixture with air, and any source of ignition, i.e. flame or spark, will cause fire or explosion. Dust
clouds generated by the fine grinding of the solid are a particular hazard; accumulations of fine dust (420
micron or less) may burn rapidly and fiercely if ignited - particles exceeding this limit will generally not form
flammable dust clouds.; once initiated, however, larger particles up to 1400 microns diameter will contribute to
the propagation of an explosion.
-In the same way as gases and vapours, dusts in the form of a cloud are only ignitable over a range of
concentrations; in principle, the concepts of lower explosive limit (LEL) and upper explosive limit (UEL).are
applicable to dust clouds but only the LEL is of practical use; - this is because of the inherent difficulty of
achieving homogeneous dust clouds at high temperatures (for dusts the LEL is often called the "Minimum
Explosible Concentration", MEC)
-A dust explosion may release of large quantities of gaseous products; this in turn creates a subsequent
pressure rise of explosive force capable of damaging plant and buildings and injuring people.
-Combustion products include carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen fluoride, nitrogen oxides
(NOx), other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic material.
-May emit poisonous fumes.
-May emit corrosive fumes.

FIRE INCOMPATIBILITY
-Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. as
ignition may result

Accidental release measures

MINOR SPILLS
-Remove all ignition sources.
-Clean up all spills immediately.
-Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
-Control personal contact by using protective equipment.

MAJOR SPILLS
-Moderate hazard.
-CAUTION Advise personnel in area.
-Alert Emergency Services and tell them location and nature of hazard.
-Control personal contact by wearing protective clothing.
-Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses.

Handling and storage

PROCEDURE FOR HANDLING
-Avoid all personal contact, including inhalation.
-Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs.
-Use in a well-ventilated area.
-Prevent concentration in hollows and sumps.
-Empty containers may contain residual dust which has the potential to accumulate following settling. Such dusts may explode in the presence of an appropria te ignition source.
-Do NOT cut, drill, grind or weld such containers.
-In addition ensure such activity is not performed near full, partially empty or empty containers without appropriate workplace safety authorisation or permit.

RECOMMENDED STORAGE METHODS
-Glass container is suitable for laboratory quantities
-Polyethylene or polypropylene container.
-Check all containers are clearly labelled and free from leaks.

STORAGE REQUIREMENTS
-Store in original containers.
-Keep containers securely sealed.
-Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
-Store away from incompatible materials and foodstuff containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

RESPIRATOR
-Particulate. (AS/NZS 1716 & 1715, EN 1432000 & 1492001, ANSI Z88 or national equivalent)
EYE
-Safety glasses with side shields.
-Chemical goggles.
-Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of len s or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task. This should include a review of lens absorption and adsorption for the class of chemic als in use and an account of injury experience. Medical and first-aid personnel should be trained in their removal and suitable equipment should be readily a vailable. In the event of chemical exposure, begin eye irrigation immediately and remove contact lens as soon as practicable. Lens should be removed at the fi rst signs of eye redness or irritation - lens should be removed in a clean environment only after workers have washed hands thoroughly.[CDC NIOSH Current Intelligence Bulletin 59], [AS/NZS 1336 or national equivalent]

HANDS/FEET
NOTE
-The material may produce skin sensitisation in predisposed individuals. Care must be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin contact.
-Contaminated leather items, such as shoes, belts and watch-bands should be removed and destroyed. Suitability and durability of glove type is dependent on usage. Important factors in the selection of gloves include
-frequency and duration of contact,
-chemical resistance of glove material,
- glove thickness and dexterity
Experience indicates that the following polymers are suitable as glove materials for protection against undissolved, dry solids, where abrasive particles are not present.
polychloroprene
nitrile rubber
butyl rubber
fluorocaoutchouc

OTHER
Overalls.
P.V.C. apron.
Barrier cream.
Skin cleansing cream.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS
-Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or place a barrier between the worker and the hazard.
-Well-designed engineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide this high level of protection.
-The basic types of engineering controls are
-Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.
-Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilation that strategically "adds" and " removes" air in the work environment.

Stability and reactivity

CONDITIONS CONTRIBUTING TO INSTABILITY
-Presence of incompatible materials.
-Product is considered stable.
-Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.

STORAGE INCOMPATIBILITY
-Avoid reaction with oxidising agents, bases and strong reducing agents.
-Avoid strong acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides and chloroformates.

Disposal considerations

Disposal Instructions
All waste must be handled in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
-Containers may still present a chemical hazard/ danger when empty.
-Return to supplier for reuse/ recycling if possible.

Otherwise:
-If container can not be cleaned sufficiently well to ensure that residuals do not remain or if the container cannot be used to store the same product, then pun cture containers, to prevent re-use, and bury at an authorised landfill.
-Where possible retain label warnings and MSDS and observe all notices pertaining to the product.
-Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/ or territory. Each user must refer to laws operating in their area. In so me areas, certain wastes must be tracked.
-A Hierarchy of Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate:
Reduction
Reuse
Recycling
Disposal (if all else fails)
-This material may be recycled if unused, or if it has not been contaminated so as to make it unsuitable for its intended use. Shelf life considerations should also be applied in making decisions of this type. Note that properties of a material may change in use, and recycling or reuse may not always be appropriate. In most instances the supplier of the material should be consulted.
-DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning or process equipment to enter drains.
-It may be necessary to collect all wash water for treatment before disposal.
-In all cases disposal to sewer may be subject to local laws and regulations and these should be considered first.
-Where in doubt contact the responsible authority.
-Recycle wherever possible.
-Consult manufacturer for recycling options or consult local or regional waste management authority for disposal if no suitable treatment or disposal facility can be identified.
-Dispose of by: burial in a land-fill specifically licenced to accept chemical and / or pharmaceutical wastes or Incineration in a licenced apparatus (after admixtur e with suitable combustible material)
-Decontaminate empty containers. Observe all label safeguards until containers are cleaned and destroyed.
