First-aid measures

Description of First Aid Measures
Eye Contact: Flush with water while holding eyelids open for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention
immediately.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Flush area with large amounts of water. Use soap. Seek
medical attention.
Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting unless directed by medical personnel. Seek medical attention immediately.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air and keep patient at rest. Seek medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Extinguish fires with CO2, extinguishing powder, foam, or water.
Special Hazards Arising from the Substance or Mixture:
Hazardous CombustionProducts: Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or fire.

Fire / Explosion Hazards: Fine particles (such as dust and mists) may fuel fires/explosions. High sensitivity of a dust
cloud to ignition, based on minimum ignition energy.

Advice for Fire-Fighters
During all fire fighting activities, wear appropriate protective equipment, including self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures:
Personnel involved in clean-up should wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
Minimize exposure.

Environmental Precautions
Place waste in an appropriately labeled, sealed container for disposal. Care should be taken to avoid environmental release.

Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
Measures for Cleaning /Collecting:
Contain the source of the spill if it is safe to do so. Collect spilled material by a method that
controls dust generation. Avoid use of a filtered vacuum to clean spills of dry solids, due to the
potential for electrostatic discharge and high sensitivity to ignition.

Additional Consideration forLarge Spills:
Non-essential personnel should be evacuated from affected area. Report emergency
situations immediately. Clean up operations should only be undertaken by trained personnel.

Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe Handling
Ground and bond all bulk transfer equipment. All conductive elements of the system that contact the dry substance should be
properly bonded and grounded and equipped with proper explosion relief or suppression systems. This material should not be
flowed through nonconductive ducts or pipes because of the potential for electrostatic discharge ignition. Restricting the use of
high resistivity materials, such as plastics, should be considered. Avoid open handling. Minimize dust generation. Use local
exhaust ventilation or perform work under fume hood/fume cupboard. Avoid inhalation and contact with skin, eye, and clothing.
When handling, use appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands and any exposed skin after removal
of PPE. Releases to the environment should be avoided. Review and implement appropriate technical and procedural waste
water and waste disposal measures to prevent occupational exposure or environmental releases. Potential points of process
emissions of this material to the atmosphere should be controlled with dust collectors, HEPA filtration systems or other equivalent
controls.
Conditions for Safe Storage, Including any Incompatibilities
Storage Conditions: Store at room temperature in properly labeled containers. Keep away from heat, sparks and flames.
Incompatible Materials: Avoid contacts with acids. As a precautionary measure, keep away from strong oxidizers

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Controls
Engineering Controls: Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control exposures. Use process
containment, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels
within the OEB range.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Refer to applicable national standards and regulations in the selection and use of personal
protective equipment (PPE).
Hands: Wear impervious gloves to prevent skin contact.
Eyes: Face shield or goggles Avoid all hand to eye contact until gloves have been removed and
hands washed.
Skin: Wear impervious protective clothing to prevent skin contact - consider use of disposable
clothing where appropriate.
Respiratory protection: If the applicable Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) is exceeded, wear an appropriate
respirator with a protection factor sufficient to control exposures to below the OEL.

Disposal considerations

Waste Treatment Methods:
Dispose of waste in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Member State
specific and Community specific provisions must be considered. Considering the relevant
known environmental and human health hazards of the material, review and implement
appropriate technical and procedural waste water and waste disposal measures to prevent
occupational exposure and environmental release. It is recommended that waste minimization
be practiced. The best available technology should be utilized to prevent environmental
releases. This may include destructive techniques for waste and wastewater
