Note to attending physician: There is no specific antidote. Please contact poison center.
Flammability of the product: This product is not flammable
Products of combustion: May evolve metal oxides fumes above melting point (cadmium oxides, tellurium oxides)
Suitable: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Not suitable: None known
Special exposure hazards: Toxic metal oxides can form in the event of fire.
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Personal precautions: Safety glasses and impervious gloves. Wear at least a P3 type particle filter respirator if the airborne concentrations are above the exposure limit. If the airborne concentrations are unknown, wear approved self-contained breathing apparatus.
Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilled material. Prevent runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains or sewers.
Methods for cleaning-up: Vacuum the spilled material with an appropriate Class H Vacuum and place in an appropriate container for disposal in a
safe place. Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal.
Handling: Avoid inhalation and dust ingestion. Avoid creating dusty conditions. Wear suitable respiratory equipment in case of insufficient ventilation If ingested or inhaled get immediate medical attention.
Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers. Keep in a dry and well ventilated area. Keep away from acids.

Occupational exposure controls
Environmental exposure controls: Use only in well ventilated areas. If handling generates dust, fumes, gases, vapor or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.
Eye protection: Safety glasses
Skin protection: Lab coat
Respiratory protection: If there is a risk of exceeding exposure limits, use at least a P3 filter respirator for toxic particles.
Hand protection: Natural rubber (latex)
Personal safety equipment pictograms
Conditions to avoid: Keep away from strong acids and excessive heat.
Materials to avoid: Strong acids
Hazardous decomposition products: May evolve metal oxides fumes above melting point.
Waste disposal : The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Avoid dispersal of spilled material and prevent runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains or sewers. Disposal of this product, solutions and any by-products should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste disposal legislation and any regional and local authority requirements.
