Skin contact       Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation occurs. Launder contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye contact       In case of contact with eyes, irrigate with water for 15 minutes, occasionally lifting eyelids. Seek medical advice if irritation (pain, redness, or swelling) or other symptoms persist.

Ingestion   If swallowed, wash out mouth thoroughly and give water to drink. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting, unless instructed by medical personnel.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire and explosive properties:              The substance is a powder and may form an explosive dust cloud. Therefore the substance should be treated with caution and keep from sources of ignition.

Extinguishing media:       Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical and foam are recommended. Remove containers from fire or cool them with water.

Specific hazards:       When burned, product may form smoke and toxic fumes, gases or vapours, including oxides of carbon and sulfur.

Protective equipment for fire fighters:       

      Fire fighters should wear an approved self-contained breathing and full protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:       For large-scale industrial spills, ensure full personal protection is worn, including respiratory protection . Keep unauthorised personnel from the spillage area.

Environmental precautions:       Prevent product from entering water courses or drainage system. In the event of a large spillage, contact the emergency services and local authorities.

Method for cleaning up:       Stop the source of leak or release. Clean up spill as soon as possible by sweeping or industrial vacuum cleaner. Avoid forming dusts and use suitable non-sparking equipment.  Collect spilled material and place in suitable container for disposal in accordance with local and national regulations. Wash contaminated surfaces with water and detergent, and collect washings for safe disposal. Follow prescribed procedures for responding to large spills and reporting to appropriate authorities.

Handling and storage

Information for safe handling:   For industrial use, avoid inhalation, direct handling, or ingestion, of the product. Use low-dust techniques, and good industrial hygiene methods. Wear protective clothing

Stability and reactivity

Stable under recommended storage and handling conditions.

Conditions to avoid:       Avoid prolonged storage at high temperature or exposure to sunlight.

Hazardous decomposition products:   None known. No hazardous polymerisation.

Disposal considerations

Disposal must be in accordance with current national and local regulations. Chemical residues generally count as special waste, and their disposal may be regulated in the EC member countries through corresponding laws and regulations. General EU requirements are given in the Waste Framework Directive(75/442/EEC) and the Hazardous Waste Directive(91/689/EEC).
