First-aid measures

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. Move exposed person to fresh
air. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer
should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing
apparatus. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if
breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial
respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to
the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If
unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention
immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such
as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The
exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.
Ingestion: Get medical attention immediately. Wash out mouth with water.
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest.
If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is
conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the
exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not
induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If
vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does
not enter the lungs. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a
physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight
clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Skin contact: Get medical attention immediately. Wash skin immediately with
plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns
must be treated promptly by a physician. Wash clothing before
reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Eye contact: Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with
plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids.
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at
least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if
the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill: Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and
place in a designated, labelled waste container. Use spark-proof
tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spill: Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water
courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up
material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Avoid
creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Use sparkproof
tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Put on
appropriate personal protective equipment). Eating,
drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this
material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash
hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Avoid
exposure during pregnancy. Do not get in eyes or on skin or
clothing. Do not breathe dust. Do not ingest. Avoid the creation of
dust when handling and avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark
or flame). Prevent dust accumulation. Use only with adequate
ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Keep in the original container or an approved
alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed
when not in use. Electrical equipment and lighting should be
protected to appropriate standards to prevent dust coming into
contact with hot surfaces, sparks or other ignition sources. Empty
containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. The
product is registered with strictly controlled conditions
and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the
industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated
and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct
sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from
incompatible materials and food and drink.
Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials.
Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.
Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and
kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled
containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
Remarks: Keep under nitrogen or argon. Take precautionary measures
against electrostatic discharges. Avoid all possible sources of
ignition (spark or flame). Vent waste air only via suitable separators or scrubbers.
