First-aid measures

Eye contact: Flush with copious quantities of water or saline, including under eyelids for at least 15 minutes.
Skin contact: Wash affected area with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. Seek medical attention if reaction occurs/persists.
Inhalation: Remove promptly to fresh air. If not breathing, administer artificial respiration. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice if adverse reaction occurs and persists.
Most important symptoms and effects: None noted

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:
Carbon dioxide, Dry powder, water or foam extinguisher
- Unsuitable extinguishing media:
None noted
- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
None known but likely to emit harmful oxides of Carbon and nitrogen
- Advice for fire fighter: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, suitable protective clothing and chemical resistant gloves

Accidental release measures

- Personal protection in case of large spills: A self contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid inhalation of the product. Suitable protective clothing and chemical resistant gloves required.
- Environmental precautions: Avoid contamination of surface waters. Cover drains.
- Methods and materials for containment and clean-up: Vacuum or sweep up material and place into suitable dedicated approved drum (ideally UN). Use non sparking tools.

Handling and storage

Safe handling: Use process enclosure, local exhaust ventilation or other suitable engineering controls to control airborne levels. Charge slowly into vessels to minimize dust clouds. Use slow controlled movements for scooping from one container to another where applicable. Sweep up/ wet down material and place into suitable UN approved disposal container. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhaling dusts. Ensure emergency eyewash equipment is close by.

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

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Material should be stored in static dissipative bags in well ventilated areas at about 25°C in closed containers.

Specific use(s): Ensure adequate earthing of equipment. Avoid ignition sources including static. Ensure adequate earthing of personnel including footwear and gloves and work on a static dissipative floor.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure limits: Internal Occupational Exposure limit set at 1.4 mg/m3 for inhalation exposure. No national occupational exposure limits available.
Biological limit values: None available
Appropriate engineering controls: Dusts of this product should not be breathed in. Engineering methods to prevent or control exposure below the permissible exposure limits should be used. Use process enclosure (glovebox, downflow booth or other suitable engineering controls to control airborne levels below the permissible exposure limits.
Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory: Wear a suitable respirator designed for achieving a high level of filtration to dust such as powered respirators or full face masks with a P3 filter (EN 14387/ EN143).
Hand: Impermeable static dissipative gloves (e.g. nitrile gloves to EN 374-2 with an extended cuff covering part of the forearm) are required as well as donning/doffing training and specific activity training.
Eye: If respirator does not already provide eye protection, wear goggles conforming to EN-166.
Skin: Wear Tyvek or similar static dissipative overalls (e.g. to EN13982, EN13034). If contaminated, must be removed whilst wearing a respirator and disposed off in an appropriate manner. Wear static dissipative footwear and work on a static dissipative floor.

Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep away from food and drink. Wash hands (and face where exposed to product) before breaks and immediately if exposure occurs anywhere else on the body.

Environmental exposure controls: Follow onsite trained procedural controls to minimize advertent exposures. Do not allow material to contaminate the ground water system. Any unused material/ spilt material to be disposed in approved drums, ideally UN approved.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable and non reactive under normal temperatures and pressures (non pyrophoric and does not react with water).
Chemical stability: Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: None known
Conditions to avoid: Generation of dust clouds. Conditions such as static discharge or other physical stresses that might result in a hazardous situation. Careful charging of this material combined with earthing of vessels, tools, floors and workers are essential to avoid such conditions. Sparking tools.
Incompatible materials: None known
Hazardous decomposition products: None known but possibly harmful fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Does not decompose when used for intended purposes.

Disposal considerations

National, local and EU regulations concerning waste disposal must be respected including the following:
S.I. 419 of 2007: Waste Management (Shipment of Waste) Regulations 2007
S.I. 113 of 2008: Waste Management (Registration of Brokers and Dealers) Regulations 2008
S.I. 324 of 2011: European Communities (Shipments of Hazardous Waste exclusively in Ireland) Regulations 2011.

Chemical Neutralisation method: None known
Methods for recovery/ recycling: Only for empty non contaminated packaging
Disposal by incinceration: Recommended
Other recommended disposal methods: Not recommended.
