First-aid measures after ingestion : Rinse mouth with water. Call Poison Information Centre

(www.who.int/ipcs/poisons/centre/directory/en). Consult a doctor/medical service if you feel

unwell.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : AFFF foam. BC powder. Carbon dioxide. Dry sand. Dry chemical powder. Adapt extinguishing

media to the environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media : Solid water jet ineffective as extinguishing medium.

Fire hazard : DIRECT FIRE HAZARD. Combustible. In finely divided state: increased fire hazard. INDIRECT

FIRE HAZARD. Temperature above flashpoint: higher fire/explosion hazard.

Explosion hazard : DIRECT EXPLOSION HAZARD. Its dust is explosive with air. INDIRECT EXPLOSION

HAZARD. Dust cloud can be ignited by a spark.

Reactivity : On burning: release of (carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide).

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

General measures : Mark the danger area. Prevent dust cloud formation, e.g. by wetting. Dust production: have

neighbourhood close doors and windows. Exposure to heat: have neighbourhood close doors

and windows. In case of dust production: no naked flames or sparks. Dust: spark-

/explosionproof appliances/lighting equipment.

For non-emergency personnel

Protective equipment : See "Material-Handling" to select protective clothing.

For emergency responders

Protective equipment : Use protective measures listed in Section 8.

Environmental precautions

Prevent soil and water pollution.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For containment : Knock down/dilute dust cloud with water spray.

Methods for cleaning up : Carefully collect the spill/leftovers. If melted: allow liquid to solidify before taking it up. Scoop

solid spill into closing containers or into synthetic bags. Clean contaminated surfaces with an

excess of water and soap solution.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Handling temperature : ≥ 10 °C above melting point

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Prohibitions on mixed storage : KEEP SUBSTANCE AWAY FROM: ignition sources. (strong) acids. (strong) bases.

Storage area : Keep container in a well-ventilated place. Store at ambient temperature. Keep out of direct

sunlight. Meet the legal requirements.

Special rules on packaging : SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: closing. correctly labelled. meet the legal requirements.

Personal protective equipment : Gloves. Protective clothing. In case of dust production: protective goggles. Dust production:

dust mask with filter type P2.

Materials for protective clothing : GIVE GOOD RESISTANCE: nitrile rubber.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

On burning: release of (carbon monoxide - carbon dioxide).

Chemical stability

Stable under normal conditions.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Disposal : Scoop solid spill into closing containers,Powdered: do not use compressed air for pumping over

spills,Clean contaminated surfaces with a soap solution

Regional legislation (waste) : No supplementary information available.

Ecology - waste materials : Do not discharge into drains or the environment. Remove to an authorized waste treatment

plant.
