First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure. If not breathing, give artificial
respiration. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical
attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Thoroughly wash exposed area
with soap and water. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse mouth and drink a glass of water. Do not induce
vomiting. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, CO2 or dry chemical

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen
oxides). However, there is no experimental evidence to
support the anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original containers.


Clean the spillage area with alkaline detergent/cleaner.



Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166


When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
used. e.g. a powered air purifying respirator conforming to
EN136.


The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a
minimum.

Storage: Store under nitrogen in a dry, well-ventilated area.



Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 120L fibreboard drums containing 40kg of substance net per
drum. Drums are lined with double plastic bags.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: This material has been shown to present a weak deflagration
hazard. This hazard may exist where sufficient quantities of
finely divided material are (or may become) suspended in
air during typical process operations. This material has
been shown to be particularly sensitive it ignition by
electrostatic discharge.


Deflagration Index (kst): 172 bar m/s, Maximum Explosion
Pressure (PMAX): 9.6 bar, Minimum Ignition Energy (MIE): 2-
5mJ.

Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is
considered harmful based on the result of a repeated dose
toxicity test in the rat.


No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.


The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate storage and
handling.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly
tothe sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.
