First-aid measures

Description of First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs or persists, get medical attention.

Skin Contact: Remove clothing and wash affected skin with soap and water. This material may not be completely removed by conventional laundering. Consult professional laundry service. Do not home launder. If irritation occurs or persists, get medical attention.

Ingestion: Get medical attention. Do not induce vomiting unless directed by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Get medical attention.

Most Important Symptoms and Effects, Both Acute and Delayed Symptoms and Effects of Exposure: No data available

Medical Conditions  None known

Aggravated by Exposure: Indication of the Immediate Medical Attention and Special Treatment Needed

Notes to Physician: None

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical, or water spray.

Special Hazards Arising from the Substance or Mixture

Hazardous Combustion Products:  Emits toxic fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and other fluorine- and sulfur-containing compounds.

Fire / Explosion Hazards: Strong dust explosion characteristic. Very high sensitivity of a dust cloud to ignition, based on minimum ignition energy.

Advice for Fire-Fighters

Wear approved positive pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective turn out gear.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures

Personnel involved in clean-up should wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Minimize exposure.

Eliminate all sources of ignition and ventilate area using explosion-proof equipment.

Environmental Precautions

Place waste in an appropriately labeled, sealed container for disposal. Care should be taken to avoid environmental release.

Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up

Measures for Cleaning /Collecting   Contain the source of the spill if it is safe to do so. Collect spilled material by a method that controls dust generation. Clean spill area thoroughly. Avoid use of a filtered vacuum to clean spills of dry solids, due to the potential for electrostatic discharge and the strong dust explosion potential and very high sensitivity to ignition.

Additional Consideration forLarge Spills: Non-essential personnel should be evacuated from affected area. Report emergency situations immediately. Clean up operations should only be undertaken by trained personnel.

Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe Handling

Ground and bond all bulk transfer equipment. Avoid open handling. Minimize dust generation. Eliminate possible ignition sources (e.g., heat, sparks, flame, impact, friction, electricity), and follow appropriate grounding and bonding procedures. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Use with adequate ventilation. Use local exhaust ventilation or perform work under fume hood/fume cupboard. Avoid inhalation and contact with skin, eye, and clothing. When handling, use appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands and any exposed skin after removal of PPE. All conductive elements of the system that contact the dry substance should be properly bonded and grounded and equipped with proper explosion relief or suppression systems. This material should not be flowed through nonconductive ducts or pipes because of the potential for electrostatic discharge ignition. Restricting the use of high resistivity materials, such as plastics, should be considered. Releases to the environment should be avoided. Review and implement appropriate technical and procedural waste water and waste disposal measures to prevent occupational exposure or environmental releases. Potential points of process emissions of this material to the atmosphere should be controlled with dust collectors, HEPA filtration systems or other equivalent controls.

Conditions for Safe Storage, Including any Incompatibilities

Storage Conditions: Store out of direct sunlight in a cool, well ventilated dry area.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection: If the applicable Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) is exceeded, wear an appropriate respirator with a protection factor sufficient to control exposures to below the OEL.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability: Stable under normal conditions of use.

Possibility of Hazardous Reactions Oxidizing Properties: Non-oxidizing.

Conditions to Avoid: Keep away from heat and other sources of ignition, including electrostatic discharge.

Incompatible Materials: As a precautionary measure, keep away from strong oxidizers.Hazardous Decomposition Products:No data available.

Disposal considerations

Waste Treatment Methods: Dispose of waste in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Member State specific and Community specific provisions must be considered. Considering the relevant known environmental and human health hazards of the material, review and implement appropriate technical and procedural waste water and waste disposal measures to prevent occupational exposure and environmental release. It is recommended that waste minimization be practiced. The best available technology should be utilized to prevent environmental releases. This may include destructive techniques for waste and wastewater.
