First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. In case of symptom of ill-health, consult a doctor. The symptoms may appear after several days.

Skin contact: Wash with soap and water.

Eye contact: Irrigate with copious amounts of low-pressure water. If irritation persists seek medical attention.

Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water. If swallowed, induce vomiting under medical supervision.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide, foam or dry chemical.

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: Never use water near molten metal.

Fire and explosive properties: The metal and the oxides are not combustible.

Specific hazards: Lead oxides and antimony oxides may be formed if the metal is overheated.

Protective equipment for fire fighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus with full-face piece.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Do not inhale fumes or dust. Use personal protective equipment.

Waste measures: Vacuum or sweep up spillage of metals and oxides. Collect in separate container. Avoid discharge to drainage.

Handling and storage

Handling: Handle lead material in such a way, that distribution of dust is minimized. Use proper industrial hygiene. Do not inhale fumes or dust.

Storage: No special precautions

Special provisions / remarks / other:
The product is not classified.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Limitation of exposure at working place: Use proper industrial hygiene and ventilation.

Technical measures: Avoid overheating the metal since oxides easier will be formed. Local exhaust is recommended for melting and where oxides are handled.

Personal protective equipment: Use appropriate protective equipment.

Exposure limit values:
Lead: TWA: 0,15 mg/m3, (as Pb) 8 hour(s). Form: dust and fume

Stability and reactivity

Stability: The product is stable under normal circumstances.

Conditions to avoid: Harmful fumes of lead when the metal is overheated.

Reactivity/Hazardous decomposition products: In presence of moisture and air (oxygen) a slow oxidation of the surface appears. Lead hydroxide oxide is formed, which is slightly soluble in water.

Disposal considerations

General: Waste from handling the product is classified as hazardous waste. Collect spillage of metals and oxides in separate container.

EWC-code: 06 04 05, Wastes containing other heavy metals.
10 04 05, Other particulates and dust.
