First-aid measures

EYE CONTACT
Do not rub eyes; mechanical action may cause corneal damage. Flush eyes with plenty of clean water for several minutes to remove foreign body. Obtain immediate medical attention for foreign body in the eye. If symptoms develop, seek medical advice.

SKIN CONTACT
Avoid repeated skin contact. Remove all contaminated clothing and wash dust from skin with plenty of water and soap for at least 5 minutes. Obtain medical attention in the event of any complaints or symptoms.

INHALATION
In the case of over exposure to dust, remove person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrestoccurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Get medical attention if cough or other symptoms develop.

INGESTION
Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure. Rinse mouth out with water. If victim is fully conscious, give a cupful of water. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting without medical advice. Seek immediate medical attention.

MOST IMPORTANT SYMPTOMS/EFFECTS, ACUTE OR DELAYED
EYES: If particulates are generated by processing or using, may scratch eye surface. May causes mechanical abrasion.
SKIN: Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Discontinue use if signs of skin irritation or rash appear.
INHALATION: Dust may be irritating to respiratory tract.
INGESTION: Ingestion is not a likely route of exposure. Accidental ingestion may cause mechanical irritation.
CHRONIC EFFECTS: No evidence of harmful effects from available information.
INDICATION OF IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND NOTES FOR PHYSICIAN: Based on the individual reactions of the patient, the physician's judgement should be used to control symptoms and clinical condition.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Skin contact may aggravate existing skin disease.

Fire-fighting measures

NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION Ratings (USA).
Health: 1, Flammability: 1, Reactivity: 0
0 = Insignificant 1 = Slight 2 = Moderate 3 = High 4 = Extreme

SUITABLE (AND UNSUITABLE) EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, dry sand or class D type fire extinguisher. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Not known.

SPECIFIC HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE CHEMICAL
No unusual fire or explosion hazards under normal conditions. Explosion hazard; Finely divided powder can smoulder in the presence of high temperatures, static discharges or ignition sources with oxygen or air dependson particle size and blockage by oxidized outer layer. The degree of fire hazard will vary depending on the type of combustible dust, conditions and amount of material present. If involved in a fire, combustion may produce toxic metal oxide fumes.

SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND PRECAUTIONS FOR FIRE FIGHTERS
As with any fire, fire-fighters should wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus to avoid breathing irritant fumes. If safe to do so, move undamaged containers from fire area. Decontaminate or discard any clothing that may contain chemical residues.

Accidental release measures

A. NECESSARY MEASURES AND PROTECTIVE GEAR TO PROTECT HUMANS
Keep non-involved personnel away from the area of spillage until clean-up operations are complete. Minimize airborne dust and eliminate all fire/ignition sources. Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not touch spilled material. If necessary, wear appropriate personal protective equipment depending on the surrounding environment. If spill is indoors, ventilate area.

B. NECESSARY MEASURES TO PROTECT ENVIRONMENT
Do not allow to escape into sewage system or water courses.Notify appropriate government, occupational health and safety and environmental authorities.

C. METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP
Do not create a dust cloud by using a brush or compressed air. Use methods tominimize dust. RECOVERY : Sweep up and shovel into waste drums. Keep in properly labelled containers. The wet spills should not be repacked in sealed containers. DECONTAMINATION/CLEANING : Wash off with plenty of water. Dispose of residues in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations.

Handling and storage

A. PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING
Avoid the formation or spread of dust in the atmosphere. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Do not taste or swallow. Handle and use in accordance with good occupational hygiene and safety practice.

B. CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE (INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES)
Stable under normal storage conditions. Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Protected from humidity. Do not store with strong oxidizing agents, acids and bases.

Exposure controls / personal protection

A. OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMIT(S), BIOLOGICAL EXPOSURE STANDARD
ACGIH Threshold Limit Values : TWA 10 mg/m^3 (Particles (insoluble or poorly soluble) not otherwise specified, inhalable particles).Korea. OELs (ISHL Article 42) : TWA 10 mg/m^3 (Articulates not otherwise regulated (no more than 1% crystalline silica)). : TWA 5 mg/m^3 (Activated Carbon).

B. APPROPRIATE ENGINEERING CONTROLS
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery and at places where dust can be generated.

INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION MEASURES
General advice: The use and choice of personal protection equipment is related to the hazard of the product, the workplace and the way the product is handled. In general, we recommend as a minimum precaution that safety glasses and work clothes protecting arms, legs and body be used.
Respiratory protection: Respiratory protective device with a particle filter where needed If dust is generated and/or if the occupational exposure limit is likely to be exceeded. 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.
Eye protection: Wear goggles if contact with eyes is possible or anticipated, or if dusts are generation is likely.
Hand protection: Wear suitable gloves based on an evaluation of conditions present. The selection of gloves must take into account the extent and duration of use at the workstation. Protective gloves must be chosen according to the function of the work station: other chemicals which may be handled, physical protection necessary (resistance to cutting, puncture, heat), dexterity required.
Body protection: Wear protective clothing. Personal protective equipment must be defined after risk assessment for the workplace. Selection of appropriate personal protective equipment should consult PPE manufacturers. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Wash as often as necessary. Do not eat or drink in the workplace. Respect the general rules for occupational hygiene.

Stability and reactivity

A. CHEMICAL STABILITY
Stable under normal conditions. Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous reactions will not occur.

B. POSSIBILITY OF HAZARDOUS REACTIONS
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

C. CONDITIONS TO AVOID (STATIC DISCHARGE, SHOCK, VIBRATION etc.)
Dust generation and accumulation.
