Accidental release measures

Wear suitable protective devices and clothes with full body protection. In case of fire and/or explosions avoid to breathe smokes and vapors. Use a respiratory device autonomous (SCBA) and adapted protective clothes. The dust can be eliminated through nebulized water.

In case of accidental release in the environment absolutely avoid that the substance can reach drains, surface water and ground water.
Collect all of the material scattered on the ground with protective equipment adapted and put it in a clean and dry container. Recover the substance for suction or with other mechanic means and wash the with plenty of water and cleanings. Store the recovered product recovered in wait of the skilled disposal society. If the effusion happened in highway or in a public place, suitable trickiness should be adopted in order to protect the people from any risk. Advise the Competent Authority.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Eye and Face protection: Safety goggles as for EN 166; facial shield. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.

Respiratory protection: Use only devices approved by the Competent Authorities such as NIOSH (USA) and CEN (EU) .

A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.


Stability and reactivity

Has strong reducing properties. Discoloration when exposed to air and sunlight. .
Avoid contact with oxidising agents, acids and bases .

Incompatibilities: Reacts with oxidizing agents; contact with peroxides and nitrates should be avoided. Contact with concentrated
nitric acid is expected to be highly exothermic.

Disposal considerations
