Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

DO NOT handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of ignition. Protect

material from direct sunlight. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded.

Use good personal hygiene practices Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Do not

get this material in contact with eyes. Do not get this material in contact with skin. Do not get this

material on clothing. Wear personal protective equipment. Do not use in areas without adequate

ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling. "Empty" containers retain

product residue (liquid or vapour) and can be dangerous. Do not re-use empty containers. Organics

can obtain an electrostatic charge during processing activities including: storage, mixing, filtering,

or pumping which may represent a spark hazard and, therefore, a fire hazard. Also, a sudden

release of such materials from storage or process equipment particularly at elevated temperatures,

and/or pressures, can result in ignitions from static absent any apparent ignition source. Flashpoint

and autoignition values obtained from standard test conditions may not be applicable to other

situations and, thus, the safe use of this material in any process should be reviewed by one familiar

with both the storage, processing conditions and this material. Note: materials that are static

accumulators may have such high potential differences created that such a situation may result in a

discharge as sparks capable of causing ignition of organic vapors. Such discharges can occur from

insulated conductors (plant items, drums), bulk liquids, mists and insulating plastic materials.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Use care in handling/storage. The pressure in sealed containers can increase under the influence of

heat. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. This material can accumulate static charge

which may cause spark and become an ignition source. Prevent electrostatic charge build-up by

using common bonding and grounding techniques. Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container

tightly closed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls

Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Ventilation should be sufficient to

effectively remove, and prevent buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or fumes that may be generated

during handling or thermal processing. In order to ensure appropriate electrical safety practices are

followed, consult applicable standards. These may include guidelines such as the National Fire

Protection Association [NFPA] 70, "The National Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended

Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for

Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas ". NOTE: since this material's vapors, dust or

fumes can form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that any potential areas where explosions may

occur are designed to minimize potential damage. For recommendations to prevent such

explosions and associated damage, consult applicable guidelines such as NFPA 69, "Standard on

Explosion Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting Deflagrations".

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

General information

Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid contact with skin.

Eye/face protection

Avoid contact with eyes. Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If splashes are likely to

occur, wear: Face-shield. Eye wash fountain is recommended.

Skin protection

- Hand protection

Wear protective gloves.

- Other

Do not get this material in contact with skin. Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection

Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. If engineering controls do not maintain airborne

concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in

countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn.

Use a positive-pressure air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release,

exposure levels are not known, or any other circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not

provide adequate protection.

Hygiene measures

Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Wash hands after handling and before eating. Handle in

accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.
