First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
carbon dioxide

Additional information:
Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides, toxic gases/vapours
Do not release chemically contaminated water into drains, soil or surface water. Sufficient measures
must be taken to retain the water used for extinguishing. Dispose of contaminated water and soil
according to local regulations. Cool endangered containers with water-spray.

Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

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:
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Handling
Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Avoid all sources of
ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Storage:
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Gas filter for
gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

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)

General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work
clothing is recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity:
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Conditions to avoid:
Avoid dust formation. Avoid deposition of dust. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open
flame. Avoid electro-static charge.

Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
strong oxidizing agents, strong bases, strong acids

Thermal decomposition:
No decomposition if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Hazardous reactions:
Dust explosion hazard.

Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
