First-aid measures

- General advice: Remove material from eyes, skin, clothing. In case of doubt or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention. Wash heavily contaminated clothing before reuse.
- Eye contact: Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with a steady, gentle stream of water for several minutes. If eye irritation persists, seek medical attention.
- Skin contact: Wash off with soap and plenty of water.
- Ingestion: No significant adverse health effects are expected to develop if only small amounts (less than a mouthful) are swallowed.
- Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If symptoms persist, call a physician. If not breathing, give artificial respiration.

Fire-fighting measures

- General advice: Treat as 'Class A' fire. Product will burn when in contact with a flame. Self extinguishes when ignition source is removed. Tends to smoulder.
- Suitable extinguishing media: Water, Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO2).
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: None.
- Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide, Carbon monoxide.
- Dust explosion hazard: Can contain sufficient fines to cause a combustible dust explosion. Do not breathe smoke, gases or vapours generated.
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions: Wet material on walking surfaces will be extremely slippery. Avoid dust formation. In case of exposure to high levels of airborne dust, wear a personal respirator in compliance with national legislation.
- Environmental precautions: Not expected to cause an environmental hazard as a result of its intended use, disposal or incineration.
- Methods for cleaning up: Use vacuum equipment designed specifically for combustible dust. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. The use of water wash down in not recommended unless the spilled material is already wet.

Handling and storage

- Handling: Avoid dust formation. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation in places where dust is formed. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Avoid conditions that generate airborne dust in handling, transfer and clean up. Product may form combustible dust-air mixtures. Keep away from heat, flame sparks and other ignition sources. Avoid emptying package in or near flammable vapours. Static charges may cause flash fire. Remove material from eyes, skin, clothing.
- Storage: Store in a roofed and well ventilated area in the unopened original package.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls:
- Engineering controls: Ventilation - Provide natural or mechanical ventilation to control exposure levels below airborne exposure limits in this section. The use of local mechanical exhaust ventilation is preferred at sources of air contamination such as open process equipment.

Personal protective equipment:
- Eye protection: This product does not cause significant eye irritation or eye toxicity requiring special protection. Where there is significant potential for eye contact, wear chemical goggles and have eye flushing equipment available.
- Skin protection: Although this product does not present a significant skin concern, minimise skin contamination by following good industrial practice.
- Hand protection: Gloves are recommended if extended exposure is anticipated EN420.
- Respiratory protection: If handling generates dust levels which cause irritation, or results in personal exposure exceeding the Occupational Exposure Standard (OES) of 10 mg/cu.m (8 hr TWA reference period) for total inhalable dust, then suitable approved dust respirator should be used. Personal exposure to dust should ideally be controlled to the lowest level possible below the OES.
- Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Stability and reactivity

- Stability: Stable under recommended storage conditions.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.
- Conditions to avoid: Avoid dust formation.
- Materials to avoid (incompatible materials): Strong oxidising agents.
- Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide (CO2).

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with local, state and national regulations.
