Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing
are recommended.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Avoid dust formation, wear suitable protective equipment

(cf. 2.3.1). Sweep up material for disposal by incineration.

For the slurry usually handled, absorb spill with
vermiculite or other inert material before collecting for
disposal.
