protected. Summon a doctor immediately.
After ingestion
If swallowed do not induce vomiting, seek medical advice and show safety datasheet or label
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms
No symptoms known currently.
Hazards
disorder of the blood function (methemoglobin formation), accompanied by dysfunctions of the central nervous system possible
4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water spray jet
foam
Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons
Full water jet
carbon dioxide
dry powder
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO)
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
5.3. Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighting
Use self-contained breathing apparatus
Further information
Fire residues and contaminated firefighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.
Wear protective equipment.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear suitable personal protective equipment.
6.2. Environmental precautions
Do not allow entry to drains, water courses or soil
6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Take up mechanically
Avoid dust formation and electrical charging (sparking) because dust explosion might occur.
When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".
6.4. Reference to other sections
Additional information
Information regarding Safe handling, see chapter 7.
Information regarding personal protective measures see, chapter exposure controls / personal protection
Information regarding Waste Disposal, see chapter disposal considerations

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not inhale dust.
Avoid dust formation.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charges - earthing necessary during
loading operations.
Keep away from sources of ignition
Dust can form an explosive mixture with air.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions
Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place, open and handle carefully.
Combustible solid. Keep away from sources of ignition.

Exposure controls / personal protection

During its lifecycle the substance is handled under strictly controlled conditions and is rigorously contained in accordance Art. 18.
Based on the knowledge of the basic hazards to humans and environment technical, organizational and PPE measures are taken to minimize release and exposure of this substance. National regulatory requirements for the handling of chemicals are also fulfilled. Employees are regularly trained. The efficiency of these measures is controlled e.g. by workplace measurements. In case of deviations these measures are adapted.

8.1. Control parameters
Exposure limit values
Exposure limit values are not available.
8.2. Exposure controls
General protective measures
Do not inhale dust
Avoid contact with eyes and skin
Hygiene measures
Wash hands before breaks and after work.
Use barrier skin cream.
Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.
Respiratory protection : in case of unintentional release or handling large quantities, respiratory protection (particle filter) must be worn
Hand protection : Chemical resistant gloves (e.g. nitrile rubber)
Minimum breakthrough time (glove): not determined
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
Observe the information of the glove manufacturers on
permeability and breakthrough times and other workplace
requirements
Eye protection : safety glasses
Body protection : working clothes

Stability and reactivity

See section 10.3. "Possibility of hazardous reactions"
10.2. Chemical stability
Under normal conditions the product is stable.
10.3. Possibility of hazardous reactions
risk of explosion/hazardous reactions in contact with potassium hydroxide, bases, strong reducing agents
10.4. Conditions to avoid
strong heating (decomposition)
10.5. Incompatible materials
see 10.3.
10.6. Hazardous decomposition products

Disposal considerations

13.1. Waste treatment methods
Product
Product should be be taken to a suitable and authorized waste disposal site in
accordance with relevant regulations and if necessary after consultation with the waste
disposal operator and/or the competent Authorities
