Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:       Remove ignition sources. Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid inhalation dust. Avoid skin and eye contact. For personal protection see Section 8.

6.1.2 For emergency responders:       Wear an appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if dust is generated.

6.2 Environmental Precautions:       Avoid disposing into drainage/sewer system or directly into the aquatic environment.

up:       Carefully shovel up spills (avoiding generation of dust) and place in labelled containers for disposal or recycling. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations at a suitable facility.

6.4 Reference to other sections:       See Section 7 for information on safe handling.

See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.

See Section 13 for information on disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:

7.1.1 Protective measures:       Rubber/plastic gloves and safety goggles are worn to prevent skin and eye contact. Dust filter masks are worn where dust or particulates are generated by the use process. General industrial hygiene practices of avoiding contact with eyes, skin and clothing, and washing thoroughly after handling, are followed. Local exhaust ventilation is used.

7.1.2 Advice on general occupational

hygiene:       Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas. Wash hands after use. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters:

8.1.1 Occupational exposure limits:       Not available.

8.1.2 Additional exposure limits under the

conditions of use:       Not available.

8.1.3 DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-Values:       Not available.

8.2 Exposure controls:

8.2.1Appropriate engineering controls:       Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

8.2.2 Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

Eye/face protection:       Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166 Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Hand protection:       Handle with gloves. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

Body protection:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.

Respiratory protection:       For nuisance exposures use type P95 (US) or type P1 (EU EN 143) particle respirator. For higher level protection use type OV/AG/P99 (US) or type ABEK-P2 (EU EN 143) respirator cartridges. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Thermal hazards:       Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent heat.

8.2.3 Environmental exposure controls:       Avoid discharge into the environment.

According to local regulations, Federal and official regulations.
