First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air; if concerned, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse open eye for several minutes with running water.  Seek

medical advice if concerned.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and launder before re-use. Wash

immediately with soap and water.  If irritation persists or

develops, seek medical advice.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use fire-fighting measures suitable for the environment.  Do

not use water.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen oxides

and soot). However, there is no experimental evidence to

support the anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to

the relevant national or international standards as

mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Collect mechanically - product forms slippery surface when

mixed with water.  Containers filled with waste material

must be labelled in the same way as the original containers.

Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in

accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance.

Avoid high dust concentrations.  Protect against

electrostatic discharges.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 15 kg paper bags which can be recycled.

Exposure controls / personal protection

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn. Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves.

Chemical resistant clothing.

Eye protection.

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be used. e.g. a dust mask.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: There is a potential dust explosion hazard from this organic

powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically or technically feasible, and such waste material will be disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it may be possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent use.  Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the hazardous health or environmental properties.   The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate storage and

handling techniques.  Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local regulations.  Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen oxides and soot) could be formed.  Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However, adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be unlikely.  Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.  Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Not applicable as the neat substance will not enter the public domain.
