First-aid measures

- General advice: Remove contaminated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.

- Following inhalation: When dust is intensively inhaled, seek medical help immediately.

- Following skin contact: In case of contact with skin wash off immediately with plenty of water.

- Following eye contact: In case of contact with eyes rinse thoroughly with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

- Following ingestion: When swallowed seek medical aid immediately and show the physician the packaging or the label of the packaging.

- Most important symptoms and effects: No information available. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: All means (e.g. water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical extinguisher)

- Unsuitable extinguishing media: Strong water jet

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Supposed thermal decomposition/oxidation to carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride (HCl), and sulphurous oxides (SOx)

- Advice for fire fighter: Use self-contained breathing apparatus. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Fire residues and contaminated water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, Protective equipment and emergency procedures: Use personal protective equipment.

- Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter drains or waterways.

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Take up mechanically. Avoid raising dust. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. When picked up, treat material as prescribed under the heading 'Disposal'.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: This substance should be handled under strictly controlled conditions as specified in REACH regulation article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements in accordance with risk-based management system should be available at each manufacturing site. During the whole lifecycle all necessary measures should be undertaken to minimise emissions and any resulting exposure. Enclosed transfer strongly recommended. Work in a defined area with restricted access recommended. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic loading. Render equipment and apparatus inert (nitrogen, inert gases) and earth before putting into operation. Avoid formation of dust. Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep only in the original container. Keep container tightly closed and dry. Protect from light.

Disposal considerations

Product: In accordance with regulations for special waste, must be taken to an authorised special waste incineration plant. Harmful emissions must be removed by flue gas scrubbing.

Uncleaned empty packaging: Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste.
