First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If person is not breathing give artifical respiration. If breathing is difficult administer oxygen. Seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Hold eyelids apart and flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with plenty of soap and water. Launder contaminated clothing before re-use. Seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Vomiting may be induced if a person is conscious and not experiencing convulsions. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical foam and powder.
Product arising from burning: Hazardous decomposition products may consist of carbon and nitrogen oxides. However, there is no experimental evidence to support the anticipated combustion products.
Product determined by test: N
Protective equipment: Full chemical and flame resistant protective clothing gloves, boots and self-contained breathing apparatus must be worn.
Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to the relevant national or international standards, as mentioned in section 2.3.10. At a minimum PPE consisting of coverall, shoe covers, eye protection, impermeable gloves and a respirator with high efficency filters or cartridges must be used.

Minimise dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg. sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste containers, or use a wet/dry HEPA vacuum. Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in the same way as the original substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent and ventilate the area.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with any local regulations in order to prevent exposure to the
extent technically feasible.

Engineering controls in the form of LEV are necessary to reduce exposure to the substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled appropriate personal protective equipment must be worn.

Such protective equipment must conform to the appropriate international or national standards as follows;
Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374
Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368
Eye protection to Standard EN166.
Respiratory protective equipment. eg. a respirator conforming to EN136.
Gloves should be changed regulary and removed after overt contamination. Rubber, neoprene or other gloves may be required if solvents, corrosives or other chemicals are

These measures mentioned above are regarded as a minimum, and must be conformed with.

Storage: Store in a dark dry area, away from heat and sunlight.
Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Ensure containers are properly labelled
Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Material is packaged in UN approved fibre drums.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.
Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.
Dust explosion: Material exhibits strong explosion characteristics if ignited as a dust cloud. Material is highly susceptible to accumulating static charges during processing and uncontrolled static discharge may result in igniting a dust cloud under certain conditions due to the low minimum ignition energy. Provide suitable bonding and grounding for containers and process equipment to control static charges.
Powder handling equipment such as dust collectors, dryers, and mills may require additional protective measures (eg. explosion venting).
Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically or technically feasible, and such waste material will be disposed of off-site by closed cycle incineration. Recovery of larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent use is recommended. As material is used in the process, no recycling of material is possible. The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment processor using a closed-cycle incinerator with scrubbers in accordance with local and national regulations. . The substance should not be discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment but trace quantities in aqueous washes can be treated in secondary biological WWTP before discharge to municipal treatment works. Trace quantities are destroyed by biological oxidation in waste water treatment plants.
