First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Eye contact: Immediately rinse eyes with plenty of water. Remove any contact lenses, and continue flushing eyes with running water. Hold eyelids apart to ensure rinsing of the entire surface of the eye and lids with water. Get immediate medical attention.

Skin contact: Wash off with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs, seek medical advice/attention.

Ingestion: Rinse mouth thoroughly. Do not induce vomiting without advice from poison control center. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention if any discomfort occurs.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Special powder against metal fire, dry sand, sodium chloride, graphite powder or Met-L-X

Unsuitable extinguishing media : Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : In the event of fire, wear full protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid formation and deposition of dust. Use personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions : Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not release into sewers or waterways.

Methods for cleaning up : Use mechanical handling equipment. Avoid dust formation. Fine, dry material should be removed by vacuuming or wet sweeping methods to prevent spreading of dust. Collect material in appropriate, labelled and closed containers for recovery or disposal in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage


Advice on safe handling : Avoid dust formation. Ensure adequate ventilation and, if necessary, exhaust ventilation when handling or transferring the product. Ensure that the occupational exposure limit values (OEL) and/or other limit values are complied with.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. During processing, dust may form explosive mixture in air. Take precautionary measures against static discharges when there is a risk of dust explosion. Use explosion-proof electrical equipment if airborne dust levels are high.

Dust explosion class: St 1


Requirements for storage areas and containers: No special requirements required.

Further information on storage conditions: Store in tightly closed containers in a dry place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures

Ventilate as needed to control airborne dust. Use explosion-proof ventilation equipment if airborne dust levels are high.

2. Organisational protection measures

Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants. Keep working clothes separately.

3. Hand protection

Butyl-rubber, Natural rubber, Nitrile rubber

The data about break through time/strength of material is not valid for undissolved solids/dust.

4. Feet protection

Antistatic safety shoes

5. Body protection

Protective suit

6. Eye protection

Safety glasses. Wear dust-resistant safety goggles where there is danger of eye contact.

7. Respiratory protection

Respiratory protective device with particle filter EN 143

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable under normal temperature conditions. However, oxidizes slowly at room temperature.

Conditions to avoid : Risk of ignition/autoignition. Keep away from sources of ignition. Avoid dust formation. Risk of dust explosion.

Materials to avoid : materials ignites in gaseous chlorine or fluorine at ambient temperature. Halogens. Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products: not applicable

Thermal decomposition : not applicable

Disposal considerations

Product : The Federal, regional and local rules and regulations governing disposal must be complied with. This product cannot be classified with disposal identification key according to the EU disposal directives as a classification results from the intended utilisation purpose of the consumer

Waste from residues / unused products: Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging: Since emptied containers may retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
