First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing give

artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give

oxygen.

Emergency measure - Eyes: In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty

of water and seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Skin: In case of contact with skin, wash with soap and copious

amounts of water. If irritation persists, seek medical

advice.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder or

appropriate foam.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg hydrogen chloride, carbon

and nitrogen oxides). However, there is no experimental

evidence to support the anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb

spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg

sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste

containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.

Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in

the same way as the original containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent. do not

direct washings to the open sewer.

Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with

local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used. e.g a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from bright

light.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance is routinely double bagged in 55 US gallon,

4mm clear polypropylene bags and then packed inside UN

approved 23 or 55 US gallon fibre drums with locking ring.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Incompatible with strong oxidising agents.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: There is a potential dust explosion hazard from this organic

powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will not occur. Recovery from

minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be

disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be

possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated

material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is a

skin sensitiser.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous health properties.

The potential dust explosion hazard will be minimised by

appropriate handling and storage.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration under

controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and

nitrgen oxides and hydrogen chloride gas) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not be discharged directly to the

sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is not available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is not available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance is not available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance is not available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is not available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: The substance is not available to the public.
