If inhaled:
Call a physician or poison control centre immediately. Move to fresh air. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.

In case of skin contact:
If on skin, rinse well with water. If on clothes, remove clothes. Immediate medical treatment is necessary as untreated wounds from corrosion of the skin heal slowly and with difficulty. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.

In case of eye contact:
Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tis-sue damage and blindness. Remove contact lenses. In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Continue rinsing eyes during transport to hospital. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing.

If swallowed:
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Keep respiratory tract clear. Do NOT induce vomiting. Do not give milk or alcoholic beverages. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Take victim immediately to hospital.

Symptoms:
Skin contact may provoke the following symptoms: Burn, corrosive effects, Allergic reactions, Redness
Inhalation may provoke the following symptoms: Shortness of breath, Asthma
In case of eye contact: Excessive lachrymation

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

Specific hazards during fire-fighting :
none
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Hazardous combustion products:
Metal oxides

Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if nec-essary.

Further information:
Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions:
Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for cleaning up:
Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece).

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Avoid formation of respirable particles. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. For personal protection see section 8. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the ap-plication area. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Persons susceptible to skin sensitisation problems or asthma, allergies, chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this mixture is being used.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.

Hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. General industrial hygiene practice. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.

Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Prevent unauthorized access. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leak-age. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight.

Further information on storage stability:
Keep in a dry place. No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
