First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
If dust generate and difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Note to physician:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Dry extinguishing media, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
Carbon dioxide
Additional information:
When in solidy form, avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.

Specific hazards:
Harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.
Personal precautions:
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Accidental release measures

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Solid: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of. Liquid: collect in appropriate container, and dispose according to local regulations.

Avoid raising dust when in solid form.

Handling and storage

Handling
When in solid form, avoid raising dust. In the event dust production, breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation when present in solid form. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Storage
Suitable materials for containers: Solid: Low density polyethylene (LDPE), glass, paper, board, High density polyethylene (HDPE); Liquid:Low density polyethylene (LDPE), glass, High density polyethylene (HDPE)
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection:
When available in solid form, suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid:
Avoid dust formation when used in solid form.

Thermal decomposition: > 150 °C

Hazardous reactions:
No hazardous reactions when stored and handled according to instructions.

Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Must be dumped or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.

Disposal considerations

Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
