First-aid measures

> Description of first aid measures
- General information: Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Inhalation: Move affected person to fresh air at once. If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration. Get medical attention if any symptoms develop or discomfort continues.
- Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Get medical attention immediately.
- Skin contact: Remove affected person from source of contamination. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Eye contact: Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids wide apart. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

> Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
- General information: The severity of the symptoms described will vary dependent on the concentration and the length of exposure.
- Inhalation: Dust may irritate the respiratory system.
- Ingestion: May cause discomfort if swallowed.
- Skin contact: Prolonged skin contact may cause temporary irritation.
- Eye contact: May cause temporary eye irritation.

> Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
- Notes for the doctor: No specific recommendations. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

> Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Extinguish with foam, carbon dioxide or dry powder.
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

> Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- Specific hazards: Dust may form explosive mixture with air. Protection against nuisance dust must be used when the airborne concentration exceeds 10 mg/m³.
- Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon monoxide (CO). Nitrous gases (NOx).

> Advice for firefighters
- Protective actions during firefighting: No specific firefighting precautions known
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and appropriate protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

> Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Personal precautions: Wear protective clothing as described in "Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection"

> Environmental precautions
- Environmental precautions: Collect and dispose of spillage as indicated in "Disposal considerations"

> Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
- Methods for cleaning up: Avoid generation and spreading of dust. Remove spillage with vacuum cleaner. If not possible, collect spillage with shovel, broom or the like. Collect and place in suitable waste disposal containers and seal securely. Label the containers containing waste and contaminated materials and remove from the area as soon as possible. Avoid the spillage or runoff entering drains, sewers or watercourses.

Handling and storage

> Precautions for safe handling
- Usage precautions: Avoid spilling. Avoid handling which leads to dust formation. Prevent accumulation of dust. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.

> Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
- Storage precautions: Store in tightly-closed, original container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Earth container and transfer equipment to eliminate sparks from static electricity. Keep separate from food, feedstuffs, fertilisers and other sensitive material.
- Storage class: Chemical storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

> Exposure controls
- Appropriate engineering controls: Use explosion-proof general and local exhaust ventilation.
- Hygiene measures: Use engineering controls to reduce air contamination to permissible exposure level. Wash at the end of each work shift and before eating, smoking and using the toilet.

> Personal Protective Equipment
- Eye/face protection: Eyewear complying with EN166 should be worn if a risk assessment indicates eye contact is possible. Unless the assessment indicates a higher degree of protection is required, the following protection should be worn: Tight-fitting safety goggles consistent with EN166.
- Hand protection Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with EN374 should be worn. It is recommended that gloves are made of the following material: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
- Other skin and body protection: Provide eyewash station and safety shower. Wear appropriate clothing to prevent any possibility of skin contact.
- Respiratory protection: In case if insufficient ventiillation wear CE approved air-fed suit with filter type A2/P3.
