First-aid measures

Eye contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical attention if necessary
Inhalation
Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Get medical attention. If necessary, call a poison center or physician. If unconscious, place in recovery position.
Skin contact
In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Ingestion
Wash out mouth with water. Don’t induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire. (Carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical, halon or water spray.

Special protective actions for firefighters
No special measures are required
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid breathing dust. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment
For emergency responders
If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any information in Section 8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the information in “For Non-emergency personnel”.
Environmental precautions
Avoid dispersal of split material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drain and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill
Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spill
Move containers from spill area. Approach the release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, watercourses, basements and confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up materials and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Protective measures
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container
Advice on general occupational hygiene
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. See also Section 8 for additional information on hygiene measures.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well- ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see Section 10) and food and drink. Store locked up. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls
Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits
Environmental exposure controls
In some case, dust collection filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.
Individual protection measures
Hygiene measures
Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period.
Eye/face protection
Safety eyewear should be used when there is a likelihood of exposure. Recommended: If operating conditions cause high dust concentrations to be produced, use dust goggles.
Skin protection
Hand protection
Use gloves appropriate for work or task being performed. Recommended: Natural rubber (latex).
Body protection
Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling this product. Recommended: Lab coat.
Other skin protection
Appropriate footwear and any additional skin protection measures should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling this product.
Respiratory protection
Not required under normal conditions of uses. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working limits of the selected respirator. Ensure an MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator or equivalent is used
