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 with soap and water. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of eye contact: rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 5 minutes. Remove contact lenses. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

If swallowed: rinse mouth with water (only if the 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. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: water spray jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

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

Hazardous combustion products:  Carbon oxides, Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Advice for firefighters

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

Specific extinguishing methods: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

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

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

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

Environmental precautions:

Should not be released into the environment.

Methods for cleaning up:

Large spills: Sweep up or vacuum with HEPA filter or via wet cleaning into suitable containers for disposal. Pick up and arrange without creating dust. Keep in properly labelled containers.

Small spills: Moisten a towel, cover the spill, pick up the spill or use HEPA vacuum.

Large spills + Small spills: Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:

Ensure all equipment is electronically grounded before beginning transfer operations. To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat. Use personal protective equipment as required. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

Avoid dust formation.

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

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers :

To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight. Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store at room temperature.

Recommended storage temperature: 15 - 25°C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

All personal protective equipment should be based on a risk assessment. Consult a Environment Health Safety expert if necessary.

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: safety glasses with side-shields

Hand protection: nitrile rubber. Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact). Impervious gloves

Skin and body protection: closed work clothing.

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 present. Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards. Suitable mask with particle filter P3.

Protective measures:

The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: none reasonably foreseeable.

Chemical stability: stable under recommended storage conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: risk of dust explosion.

Conditions to avoid: to avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat. Heat, flames and sparks.

Materials to avoid: oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products: carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:

Product: In accordance with local and national regulations.

Must be incinerated in a suitable incineration plant holding a permit delivered by the competent authorities.

Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
