First-aid measures

General information: As a general rule, in case of doubt or if symptoms persist, always call a doctor.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place
in recovery position and seek medical advice.
First aide personnel: pay attention to self-protection!

In case of inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable and well-ventilated for breathing. In case of irritation of respiratory system or mucous membranes and/or indisposition and/or prolonged exposure, seek medical attention.

In case of skin contact: Wash thoroughly with soap and water. Under no circumstances should organic solvent be used. If irritation develops, seek medical attention. Consult a doctor if skin irritation persists.

In case of eye contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with running
clean water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. If symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

In case of ingestion: Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. In case of spontaneous vomiting be sure that vomitus can freely drain due of danger of suffocation. Give water repeatedly. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to help prevent aspiration. Do not induce vomiting/risk of damage to lungs exceeds poisoning risk. Give nothing by mouth in cases of unconsciousness or convulsion. Get medical attention immediately and show the container or label.

In case of body contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.

Self-protection of the first-aiders: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Notes to physician: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: No specific information.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: No specific information.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry powder, foam, water spray, carbon dioxide

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reason: no specific information

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Harmful vapours: evolution of fumes/fog. The substance can be released in case of fire.

Advice for fire-fighters: Wear full protective clothing. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Other information: Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion. Dusty conditions may ignite explosively in the presence of an ignition source causing flash fire. Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Fight fire from safe distance/protected location. Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not scatter spilled material with high-pressure water streams. Use agents suitable for type of surrounding fire. Avoid breathing hazardous vapours, keep upwind.

Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater. Contaminated water from fire hoses or sprinkler etc must be prevented from draining into watercourses, sewers or the ground water. Sufficient measures must be taken to retain water used for extinguishing. Contaminated water and soil must be disposed of in conformity with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid dust formation. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Use personal protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapours/dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions: Contain contaminated water/fire-fighting water. Avoid releasing to the environment. Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up Spills/Leaks: Avoid raising dust. Remove unnecessary people. Shut off all sources of ignition. Wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, carefully sweep up material and place in suitable labelled, tightly sealed containers for disposal. Do not flush spilled material into sewer.
For small amount: pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: contain with dust binding material and dispose of.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: As a general rule, not to eat, drink and smoke in work areas; to wash hands after use and; to remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. In accordance with good industrial practice, industrial hygiene principles and relevant legal provisions, handle with care and avoid unnecessary personal contact. Closed containers should only be opened in well-ventilated areas.
Containers of this chemical may be hazardous when empty since they retain product residues (dust, solid); observe all warnings and precautions listed for the product.

Handling requirement: Ensure good ventilation/local exhaust at the workplace. Handle and open container with care. Avoid creating dusty conditions. Keep away from ignition sources. Avoid inhalation, skin and eye contact. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Close containers immediately after use.

Fire and explosion hazard: This substance is not expected to present an explosion hazard during normal transportation and storage operations. However, when dispersed in air and subject to sufficient energy of ignition, it may pose a dust explosion hazard. Minimize the energy of ignition, it may pose a dust explosion hazard. Minimize the potential for dust explosion by eliminating/controlling ignition sources (bond and ground), and by using good housekeeping practices during storage, transfer, handling and use to avoid excessive dust accumulation. Protection against fire and explosion.

Condition and materials to avoid: Direct sunlight, excessive light, moisture, oxidizing conditions, excessively high temperatures, sparks and open flame, dusting conditions.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place against strong oxidizers when not in use and during transport, prevent contamination with foreign materials. Keep chemical away from direct sunlight, heat, sparks, open flame and other ignition sources. Keep away from food and drink. Store in the original container securely closed. Protect from moisture and physical damage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: Work in well ventilated areas. Local exhaust ventilation is generally required because it can control the emissions of the contaminant and its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area. Use mechanical ventilation for general area control. Refrigerant concentration monitors may be necessary to determine vapour concentration in work areas prior to use torches or other open flames, or if employees are entering enclosed areas.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Precautionary and hygiene measures: Precautionary measures: Do not handle this chemical near heat, sparks or open flame. Prevent electrostatic discharge formation. Avoid accumulation of dust in enclosed space. Keep container closed when not in use. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Do not breathe dust. Use only with adequate ventilation/personal protection. Before using this substance as such or mixtures containing, read SDS.

Hygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling this substance or mixtures containing substance, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food. During synthesis, formulation or application, follow good industrial hygiene practice. Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.
