First-aid measures

If inhaled:
If breathed in, move person into fresh air.
If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of skin contact:
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.
Wash off immediately with plenty of water.
Call a physician immediately.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

In case of eye contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.
Call a physician immediately.

If swallowed:
If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious).
Induce vomiting if person is conscious.
Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water mist
Dry powder
Foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Sand
Aqueous film forming foam (AFFF).

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Water spray jet

Specific hazards during fire-fighting:
Risk of dust explosion.

Special protective equipment for firefighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Firefighters must wear fire resistant personal protective equipment.

Further information:
In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Avoid dust formation.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Avoid breathing dust.
Avoid dust formation.
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions:
Should not be released into the environment.

Methods for cleaning up:
Sweep up and shovel into suitable containers for disposal.
Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.
To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Avoid formation of dust and aerosols.
Use personal protective equipment as required.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation.

Hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Dust explosion class:
St2

Recommended storage temperature:
15 - 25 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures:
Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control possible exposures. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep exposure levels below recommended exposure limits.

Personal protective equipment:
- Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles
- Hand protection Remarks: Long sleeve gloves
- Skin and body protection: closed work clothing disposable one-piece overall with integral hood
- Respiratory protection:
Engineering controls should always be the primary method of controlling exposures.
If respiratory protective equipment is needed for certain activities, the type as well as the corresponding protection factor will depend upon the risk assessment and air concentrations, hazards, physical and warning properties of substances pre-sent.
Respirator with a particle filter (EN 143) P2
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in all circumstances when the mask and cartridge do not give adequate protection (e.g. : medium confinement/insufficient oxygen/in case of large uncontrolled emissions).
Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards.
- Protective measures: The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
