First-aid measures

Description of first aid measuresImmediately remove contaminated clothing. If inhaled:If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention. On skin contact:Wash thoroughly with soap and water. On contact with eyes:Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open. On ingestion:Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayedSymptoms: Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment neededTreatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing mediaSuitable extinguishing media: dry powder, foamUnsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: carbon dioxideAdditional information: Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.Special hazards arising from the substance or mixtureharmful vapoursEvolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Advice for fire-fightersSpecial protective equipment:

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency proceduresAvoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing. Environmental precautionsContain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Methods and material for containment and cleaning upFor small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of. For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of. Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handlingBreathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation. Protection against fire and explosion:Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesFurther information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place. Protect from temperatures above: 45 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipmentRespiratory protection:Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2) Hand protection:Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and otherSupplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.Eye protection:Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)Body protection:Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).General safety and hygiene measuresHandle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

ReactivityNo hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.Chemical stabilityThe product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated. Possibility of hazardous reactionsThe product may contain explosive fine dust or such dust may be produced by abrasion during transport or product transfer. Conditions to avoidAvoid dust formation. Avoid deposition of dust. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid humidity. Incompatible materialsSubstances to avoid: strong acids, combustibles, combustion additives, peroxides, water Hazardous decomposition productsHazardous decomposition products:No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.Contaminated packaging:Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
