After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water.
In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
If inhaled: Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If breathin is difficult, give oxygen. If no breathing, give artificial respiration, perferably mouth to mouth. Seek medical advice.
After accidental ingestion rinse mouth with water. Give plenty of water to drink. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek medical advice.
Emergency equipment: Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the work location.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures : Ensure good ventilation of the work station. Control parameters
Exposure limit values (Human Health)
- Occupational exposure limit values (most European countries) inert dust : Inhalable dust - 8 h TWA: 10 mg/m3.
Respirable dust - 8 h TWA: 3 mg/m3.
- ACGIH Threshold Limit Values (U.S.A./A.C.G.I.H.) : Inhalable Particles - TLV (TWA) : 10 mg/m3.

Personal protective equipment
- Respiratory protection : If the occupational exposure limit is exceeded :Respiratory protective device with a particle filter.
- Hand protection : Appropriate gloves. In case of mixture with other substances, request advice from your glove supplier. Protective gloves must be chosen according to the function of the work station: other chemicals which may be handled, physical protection necessary (resistance to cutting, puncture, heat), dexterity required. Use suitable chemical-resistant protective gloves (compliant with
Standard EN 374-1)
- Eye protection : Safety spectacles.
- Skin and body protection : Impermeable clothing.
Hygiene measures : General good industrial hygiene practice.

Stability and reactivity

Stability : Very hygroscopic product.
Hazardous reactions
- Conditions to avoid : On contact with humidity and in the presence of heat, the volume of the product may expand causing the drum to burst. Exothermic decomposition.
Further information : When dissolving in acids, carry out with caution

Disposal considerations

Destruction/Disposal : Dispose of materials or solid residues at a licensed site.
Decontamination/cleaning : Clean with water.
Destruction/Disposal : Entrust the thoroughly decontaminated packaging to a licensed waste-contractor.
