First-aid measures

1. Description of first aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:

Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

On ingestion:

Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: No significant reaction of the human body to the product known.

3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions). No known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: dry powder, foam, water spray

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water jet

Additional information: Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.

2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

harmful vapours: Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

3. Advice for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment:

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:

Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations. Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.

Accidental release measures

Dust can form an explosive mixture with air.

1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing. Do not breathe dust.

2. Environmental precautions

Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.

For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.

Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

1. Precautions for safe handling: Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid raising dust.

Protection against fire and explosion: Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. The relevant fire protection measures should be noted.

2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Segregate from strong oxidizing agents. Segregate from reducing agents.

Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container dry.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Breathing protection if dusts are formed. Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)

Hand protection:

Wear chemical resistant protective gloves.

Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) etc.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:

Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Avoid inhalation of dusts. Store work clothing separately. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.

Stability and reactivity

1. Reactivity

No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

2. Chemical stability

The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

3. Possibility of hazardous reactions

The product may contain explosive fine dust or such dust may be produced by abrasion during transport or product transfer.

The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

4. Conditions to avoid

Avoid electro-static charge.

5. Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:

strong oxidizing agents, strong bases, strong acids, strong reducing agents

6. Hazardous decomposition products

No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

Contaminated packaging:

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and disposed of in the same manner as the substance/product.

Uncontaminated packaging may be treated as household waste.

Uncontaminated packaging can be recycled.
