First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure and keep patient at rest. Seek medical


Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate thoroughly with cold clean water for at least 15

minutes. Seek immediate medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected areas with copious volumes of water. If an

irritation develops seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water and give water to drink. Do not

induce vomiting. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam, water spray, dry powder or carbon dioxide.

Product arising from burning: Toxic fumes of nitrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and

halogen-containing gases

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self-contained breathing equipment must be worn by


Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: In the event of a large spillage wear an air suit, rubber

gloves and wellington boots. Carefully scoop up the material

and place in a sealable drum, wipe up residual powder with a

damp cloth and include this in the drum before sealing.

Small spillages may be tackled wearing laboratory coats,

safety glasses and rubber gloves, and if necessary a

suitable respirator to P3 protection or equivalent. Collect

the material and place in a suitable container. Wipe up

residual traces with a damp cloth and include this for

disposal, finally seal the container. The area may be

finally washed down with water providing no significant

residues remain.

Handling and storage

Handling: In production facilities, a full air suit or PVC chemical

suit and half air suit, PVC gauntlet type, nitrile gloves

and wellington boots should be worn. The material should be

handled within closed containers wherever possible. Minor

contamination of protective equipment should be hosed with

water before removal.

In laboratory areas, laboratory coats and nitrile or latex

gloves should be considered minimum protection All

operations involving open containers should be performed in

a fume hood. If this is impracticable, a dust mask to P3

protection or equivalent must be worn.

Storage: Store up to 50 kg (generally 25kg)in UN approved

polyethylene lined fibreboard kegs in a cool, dry, well

ventilated area.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Up to 25 kg polyethylene-lined UN approved fibre board kegs,

fitted with lever ring closure device for security.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of the material is technically possible but would

necessitate very stringent control.  Any residual material

contained in mother liquors are incinerated off site in

accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is non-volatile and unreactive. No simple

chemical treatment is envisaged which will render the

substance harmless.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The process generates no products suitable for landfill

disposal.  All waste/residue goes for incineration off site.

Discharge of aqueous waste to non-industrial outlets is not

anticipated and does not occur.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is the method of disposal for this substance.

This will normally involve dilute solutions in a flammable

organic solvent. Flue gas treatment for acidic gases is


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Aqueous reaction streams diluted with sufficient volumes of

water are rendered harmless within the site waste water

treatment facility.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: Not investigated.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the substance will not enter the public
