First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air symptomatic treatment. In all cases
remove any contaminated clothing and launder before reuse.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15
minutes.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with plenty of soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Foam, carbon dioxide, dry
agents and water are suitable.

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Products of combustion may
contain oxides of carbon and sulphur together with some
soot.

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and a
self-contained breathing apparatus are recommended.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the immediate vicinity. Wear
suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1). Dampen down
powder spillages with water. Absorb liquid spillages with a
suitable inert material eg sand or soil. In both cases
transfer the spillage to labelled waste containers or use
an approved sealed industrial vacuum machine. Wash the
spillage area with detergent and water. The substance
should be disposed of by incineration or by landfill in
accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
accordance with the principles of good industrial hygiene
and any local legislation. Where exposure cannot be
adequately controlled by use of engineering controls,
personal protective equipment eg eye protection, chemical-
resistant gloves, a dust mask conforming to BS 6016, type I
(prEN 149, FFP Grade 1) and protective clothing is
recommended.

Storage: Store in polythene bags in fibre drums at ambient
temperature in the dark. When not in use drums should be
kept tightly closed.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from minor spillages or accidental spillages is
not technically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers, waste material or spillages of
solutions mixed with inert material may be disposed of by
landfill in accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration at an authorised facility equipped with waste
gas treatment to remove sulphur oxides is possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. However, the substance is not likely to
have adverse effects on treatment plants.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from preparations is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Articles containing the substance may be disposed of as
normal domestic/office waste.
