damage persists.
In case of inhalation:
Remove the individual to fresh air and keep at rest. Obtain medical advice immediately.
In case of skin contact:
Remove contaminated clothes. Wash skin with large volumes of water.
If irritation persists, or any sign of tissue damage is apparent, obtain medical advice immediately.
In case of ingestion:
Rinse mouth with water. Obtain medical advice immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
No specific data available.

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
No specific data available.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
In the event of fire, adequate extinguishers should be used. Avoid inhalation of smoke and fumes. In case of
insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Special hazard arising from the substance or mixture
No specific hazard known.

Advice for fire-fighters
No specific advice.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel:
Adequate protective gloves should be worn when handling spillages. No smoking. Avoid naked flames or other
potential sources of ignition (eg. electrical equipment).
Avoid skin contamination and inhalation of dust.
Individual washing routines should be followed after any potential contact.
Ensure adequate ventilation in working areas following accidental releases.
For emergency personnel:
Apply the same recommendations as section 6.1

Environmental precautions
Do not discharge directly into drains, air, into soil or into the aquatic environment.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For containment:
For cleaning-up:
Spillages should be disposed of in accordance with Governmental Regulations

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Keep strict control of dust accumulation to a minimum.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Wear adequate protective gloves protection and eye/face protection.
No smoking. Avoid any source of ignition. Use flameproof electrical equipment and spark-reduced tools.
Ensure that all equipments are properly bonding and earthing.
Avoid exposing to high temperature during processing.
Do not ingest or apply to the skin as such. Good personal washing routines should be followed.
Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled.
Protective measures
Keep strict control of dust accumulation to a minimum.Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where
product is handled.Avoid any sources of ignition.
Advice on general occupational hygiene
Good personal washing routines should be followed.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
It is good general practice to store in closed, preferably full, containers away from heat sources, and protected
from extremes of temperature. Do not re-use the empty container.
Respect generals rules for compatibility storage.

Personal protection
Respiratory protection: Where ventilation (LEV) is inadequate to prevent any inhalation of substances, use
adequate respiratory apparatus.
Hand protection: Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN 374: Protective gloves against
chemicals. Preferred glove barrier materials: Neoprene and Nitrile. When prolonged or frequently repeated
contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 4 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 120 minutes
according to EN 374) is recommended. When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of
1 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 10 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. Thickness > or
= 0,2mm.
NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace
should also take into account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which
may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body
reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.
Eye protection: Adequate safety glasses should be used.
Skin protection: Wear protective clothing, overall if necessary to limit the odour contamination of personal
clothing. Individual washing routines should be followed after any potential contact.

decomposition products.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product: when being disposed of in its unused and uncontaminated state should be treated as a hazardous
waste according to EC Directive 2008/98/EC. Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national
and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste.
Contaminated packaging: for used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be
required.
Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
