First-aid measures

After inhalation:
Remove to fresh air and keep patient at rest.
Seek medical attention immediately.

Immediately wash skin with soap and copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes.
Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
Seek medical attention.

IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
Seek medical attention immediately.

IF SWALLOWED: Seek medical attention immediately.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If person is conscious, wash out mouth with water.
Do not induce vomiting unless directed by medical personnel.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Extinguish fires with C02, extinguishing powder, foam or spray water.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Avoid to use water jet.

Substance is not flammable. However, formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or fire. May include oxides of carbon, nitrogen and products of sulphur.
Fine particles (such as dust and mists) may fuel fires/explosions.

Firefighting responders should equip themselves with a complete body and heat resistant protective equipment and self contained breathing apparatus (EN 137 / EN 14593 / EN 14594 - NIOSH/MSHA approved in USA).
Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources.

Accidental release measures

Ventilate contaminated area.
Minimize exposure. Avoid contact with the substance. Do not breathe dust.
Consideration for large spills:
Non-essential personnel should be evacuated from affected area. Keep upwind.
Report emergency situations immediately.
Clean up operations should only be undertaken by trained personnel.
Personnel involved in c1ean-up should wear appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8).

Do not flush spill area with plenty of water before picking-up, to avoid contamination of the watercourses and low areas.

Contain the source of spill if it is safe to do so.
Collect spilled material by a method that controls dust generation.
Place waste in an appropriately labelled, sealed container for disposal (See section 13).
A damp cloth or a filtered vacuum should be used to c1ean spills of dry solids.
Wash spill site with plenty of water after material pickup is complete.

Handling and storage

All conductive elements of the system that contact the dry substance should be properly bonded and grounded and equipped with proper explosion relief or surpression systems.
This material should not be flowed through non-conductive ducts or pipes because of the potential for electrostatic discharge ignition.
Restricting the use of high resistivity materials, such as plastics, should be considered.
Avoid open handling.
Minimize dust generation.
Handle and use only in well-ventilated areas.
Safety shower and eyewash fountain should be available.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes.
Avoid breathing dust.
Avoid repeated or prolonged exposure.
Wash thoroughly after handling.
Keep apart working clothes.
When handling, use appropriate personal protective equipment.

The ground of the storage area must be waterproof and form retention basin.
Keep containers tightly closed.
Store at room temperature in properly labelled containers.
Keep away from heat, sparks and flames.
Keep away from strong oxidising agents.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limit values: Not available.
DNEL / PNEC: Not available.

Engineering measures: The use of local exhaust is recommended to avoid dust emissions.

Personal protective equipment:
Eyes / Face protection: Chemical safety goggles with side shields / Face shield (EN 166)

Skin protection: Suitable protective body clothing (EN 13982-1 in case of dust)

Hand protection: In case of limited contact or for a protection against splashes: gloves with minimum protection index of 2 (permeation time > 30 min according to EN 374-3): nitrile rubber, PVC / In case of direct prolonged exposure: gloves with minimum protection index of 4 (permeation time > 120 min according to EN 374-3): butyl rubber, PVC

Respiratory protection: Evaluate additional respiratory protection (EN 140 / EN 136 with filter EN 14387 – Type A), as needed based on available engineering controls, when risk of inhalation. Self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 137 / EN 14593 / EN 14594 – NIOSH/MSHA approved in USA) in case of important risk or prolonged exposure, for example in case of fire fighting.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: No data available.

Chemical Stability: The substance is stable at room temperature and under normal storage and handling conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: No dangerous reaction has been identified.

Conditions to avoid: Fine particles (such as dust and mists) may fuel fires/explosions.
As a precautionary measure, keep away from heat sources and electrostatic discharge.
Risk of dust explosion. Dust may form explosive mixture in air.

Incompatible materials: As a precautionary measure, keep away from strong oxidizers.

Hazardous decomposition products: Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or fire. May include oxides of carbon, nitrogen and products of sulphur. Decomposition in water: not concerned.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
Product residues:
Do not reject in natural environment.
Burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber.

Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging have to be disposed in a site approved for chemical and hazardous waste or burned in a specialised burning centre.

In every case, the wastes must be disposed in accordance with local regulations.
