Fire-fighting measures

· Extinguishing media

· Suitable extinguishing agents:

Use fire fighting measures that suit the environment.

CO2, extinguishing powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.

· For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: None

· Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In case of fire, the following can be released:

Carbon monoxide (CO)

Carbon dioxide

· Advice for firefighters

· Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Additional information:

Dispose of fire debris and contaminated fire fighting water in accordance with official regulations.

Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter the sewage system.

Accidental release measures

· Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Avoid formation of dust.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.

· Environmental precautions:

Do not allow product to reach sewage system or any water course.

Do not allow to penetrate the ground/soil.

· Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Pick up mechanically.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Avoid any dust formation. Pick up with a tested and approved industrial vacuum cleaner if necessary.

Make sure to recycle or dispose of in suitable receptacles.

Handling and storage

· Handling:

· Precautions for safe handling

Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace.

Prevent formation of dust.

Avoid inhalation of dust.

Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

Any deposit of dust which cannot be avoided must be regularly removed.

· Information about protection against explosions and fires:

Dust can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.

Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.

Protect against electrostatic charges.

Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.

· Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

· Storage:

· Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles:

Store container tightly sealed at a cool and dry place with sufficient ventilation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

· Control parameters

· Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: Not required.

· CAS No. Designation of material % Type Value Unit

· Additional Occupational Exposure Limit Values for possible hazards during processing:

Observe general threshold limit for dust.

· Additional information: The lists that were valid during the creation were used as basis.

· Exposure controls

· Personal protective equipment:

· General protective and hygienic measures:

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Do not eat or drink while working.

Vacuum clean contaminated clothing. Do not blow or brush off contamination.

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

Do not inhale dust / smoke / mist.

Use skin protection cream for skin protection.

Provide eye bath.

· Breathing equipment:

In case of unintended release:

In case of unintentional release of substance, exceeding the occupational exposure limit value:

At formation of dust:

Short term filter device:

Filter P2.

· Protection of hands:

Chemical resistant gloves

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Selection of the glove material in consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.

Preventive skin protection by use of skin-protecting agents is recommended.

After use of gloves apply skin-cleaning agents and skin cosmetics.

· Material of gloves:

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from

manufacturer to manufacturer.

For undissolved solid substances following materials may be suitable:

Polychloroprene rubber (CR)

Butyl rubber, BR

Nitrile rubber, NBR

Fluorocarbon rubber (FKM)

· Penetration time of glove material:

The exact penetration time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

· Eye protection: Tightly sealed goggles.

· Body protection: Protective work clothing.

Stability and reactivity

· Reactivity

· Chemical stability

· Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:

No decomposition if used and stored according to specifications.

To avoid thermal decomposition do not overheat.

Stable up to melting point.

· Possibility of hazardous reactions Risk of dust explosion.

· Incompatible materials:



· Hazardous decomposition products:

No hazardous decomposition products; if instructions for storage and handling are followed.

At temperatures above 100° C and upon contact with water acetone and acetylacetone may be formed.
