Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray.
Do not use in areas without adequate ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly
after handling. Do not empty into drains. The usual precautions for handling chemicals should be
observed Do not allow dust to accumulate on surfaces and equipment.
Material can accumulate static charges from material handling management. Bond and ground as
appropriate. For additional recommendations, consult an applicable guideline such as National Fire
Protection Association [NFPA] 77, "Recommended Practices on Static Electricity". The Minimum
Ignition Energy for some organic solids as a dust may be as low as 3 mJ [millijoules]. The
Minimum Explosive Concentration for some organic solids as a dust may be as low as 0.025 oz/ft3
or ~20 g/m3.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Prevent electrostatic charge build-up by using
common bonding and grounding techniques. Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated
place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure guidelines
The UK HSE (EH40) recommends the following limits for dusts: 10 mg/m3 (8hr TWA) total
inhalable dust; 4 mg/m3 (8hr TWA) total respirable dust.

Appropriate engineering controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates
should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or
other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If
exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
Ventilation should be sufficient to effectively remove, and prevent buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or
fumes that may be generated during handling or thermal processing. In order to ensure
appropriate electrical safety practices are followed, consult applicable standards. These may
include guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association [NFPA] 70, "The National
Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts
and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas ".
NOTE: since this material's vapors, dust or fumes can form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that
any potential areas where explosions may occur are designed to minimize potential damage. For
recommendations to prevent such explosions and associated damage, consult applicable guidelines
such as NFPA 69, "Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting
Deflagrations". Keep working clothes separately and do not take them home.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information
Use personal protective equipment as required.

Eye/face protection
Avoid contact with eyes. Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If splashes are likely to
occur, wear: face-shield.

Skin protection
Nitrile or PVC coated gloves with an estimated breakthrough time of >100 minutes are
recommended.
Wear dustproof working clothes.

Respiratory protection
Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable
respiratory equipment.

Hygiene measures
Do not get this material in contact with skin. Do not get this material on clothing. Handle in
accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
