• Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
- Symptoms : No information available
•Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
- Treatment : Treat symptomatically. For specialist advice physicians should contact the Poisons. Information Service.

Fire-fighting measures

•Extinguishing media
-Suitable extinguishing media : Dry extinguishing media based on NaCl or pulverized limestone.
-Unsuitable extinguishing media: Water, Halons, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
•Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
-Specific hazards during firefighting: Dust can form an explosive mixture in air. Burning product decomposes water instantaneously (explosion). May form toxic gases on heating or in case of fire.
•Advice for firefighters
-Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
-Further information : Use a water spray to cool fully closed containers. 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, protective equipment and emergency procedures
-Personal precautions : Remove all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe dust. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
•Environmental precautions
-Environmental precautions : Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Avoid subsoil penetration.
•Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
-Methods for cleaning up : Never allow contact with water. Cover spilled material with limestone powder. Pick up and transfer to properly labelled containers. Adequate disposal

Handling and storage

•Precautions for safe handling
-Advice on safe handling : Handle under inert gas. Keep under argon. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. In general, emissions are controlled and prevented by implementing an appropriate management system, including regular informing and training workers.
-Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Take precautions against dust explosion. Use explosion-proof equipment.
•Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
-Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep under argon. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and wellventilated place. Keep away from heat. Protect from moisture.
-Advice on common storage : Never allow product to get in contact with water during storage. Do not store near acids. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
•Specific end use(s)
-Specific use(s) : Pyrotechnics., Additive for soldering

Exposure controls / personal protection

•Engineering measures
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Electrical equipment should be protected to the appropriate standard.
•Personal protective equipment
-Respiratory protection : In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Half mask with a particle filter P2 (EN 143).
-Hand protection : Glove material: Wear suitable gloves. Protective gloves complying with EN 374. Glove material: Flame retardant gloves. The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other. The exact break through time can be obtained from the protective glove producer and this has to be observed. Protective gloves have to be replaced at the first sign of deterioration.
-Eye protection : Tightly fitting safety goggles. Eye protection (EN 166).
-Skin and body protection : Flame retardant protective clothing according to DIN EN 531.
