Description of first aid measures

General information

Seek medical assistance if discomfort continues

After inhalation

Remove the casualty into fresh air and keep him calm.

After contact with skin

In case of contact with skin, clean with soap and water.

After contact with eyes

Rinse the affected eye with plenty of water, at the same time keep the unaffected eye well protected.

After ingestion

If swallowed do not induce vomiting,seek medical advice and show safety datasheet or label

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


No symptoms known currently.


No special measures needed.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed


Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

water spray jet


Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons

Full water jet

carbon dioxide

dry powder

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)

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighting

Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear suitable personal protective equipment.

Avoid dust formation.

Keep away sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow entry to drains,water courses or soil

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Avoid dust formation and electrical charging (sparking) because dust explosion might occur.

Damp spilled material with water and pick up mechanically. Transfer warning labels from original containers to containers where the material is collected.

When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".

Reference to other sections

Additional information

Keep away sources of ignition, stop running engines, no smoking.

Moisten spilled material with water, cover with wet sand or wetted binder, then take up.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling

When used and handled appropriately no special measures are needed

Avoid dust formation.

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.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g  earthing during loading and off-loading operations.

Keep away from sources of ignition

Dust can form an explosive mixture with air.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep in original packaging, tightly closed

Advice on storage compatibility

When used and handled as intended,  none.

Do not store or transport together with foodstuffs

Further information on storage conditions

Keep container dry

Storage stability

If correctly stored: storage life > 12 months

Specific end use(s)

No further recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

General protective measures

Observe the usual precautions for handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection

Wear dust mask when handling large quantities

Hand protection

Nitrile rubber gloves.

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

With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.

Because this glove is used only for mechanical protection, the minimum breakthrough time and thickness are not relevant to safety.

Eye protection

safety glasses

Body protection

working clothes

Stability and reactivity


See section "Possibility of hazardous reactions"

Chemical stability


Possibility of hazardous reactions

Risk of dust explosions.


Conditions to avoid



Incompatible materials

not known

Hazardous decomposition products

When handled and stored appropriately, no dangerous decomposition products are known

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods


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

Uncleaned packaging

Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste
