- Skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove and wash any contaminated clothing. Dust may provoke skin irritation.
- Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Get immediate medical attention.
- Ingestion: Rare in industry. Ingestion may cause irritation of the nose and throat. If the person is unconscious, do not give anything to drink or induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.
- Note to attending physician: There is no specific antidote. Please contact poison centre.

Fire-fighting measures

- Flammability of the product: This product is not flammable
- Products of combustion: Cadmium oxides, sulfur oxides
- Extinguishing media
Suitable: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Not suitable: None-know
- Special exposure hazards: Toxic metal oxides can form in the event of fire.
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions: Safety goggles, impervious gloves and boots. If the airborne concentration is above the IDLH (set at 9 mg/m3 for cadmium) or unknown, wear approved self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.
- Environmental precautions: Contain spilled material, and prevent runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains or sewers.
- Clean-up methods: Vacuum the spilled material with an appropriate HEPA Vacuum and place in an appropriate container for disposal in a safe place. Prevent wind dispersal.

Handling and storage

Handling: Never breathe or ingest dust. Wear suitable respiratory equipment in case of insufficient ventilation. In the event of accidental ingestion or inhalation, contact medical services immediately and forward them the material safety data sheet. Avoid skin and eye contact.
