First-aid measures

First-Aid Measures

Description of first aid measures:
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, 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, consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

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

Fire-Fighting Measures

Extinguishing media:
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:
harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Advice for fire-fighters:
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. Dusty conditions may ignite explosively in the presence of an ignition source causing flash fire.

Accidental release measures

Accidental Release Measures
Forms slippery surfaces with water.

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective measures see, section 8.

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

Methods and material for containment and cleaning 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. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Provide exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. The product is capable of dust explosion. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Suitable materials for containers: Low density polyethylene (LDPE), glass, Paper/Fibreboard, board, High density polyethylene (HDPE)
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Specific end use(s):
For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 the advice mentioned in this section 7 is to be observed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)

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
Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended.
