First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, move

exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is difficult or

ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as

appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept warm and at

rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible

over exposure, or with symptoms including chest pain,

difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness or other adverse

effects, which may be delayed.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water for at

least 15 minutes and seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove

contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with plenty of

water.  Seek medical attention if there is any adverse skin

reaction which may be immediate or delayed.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Never attempt to induce vomiting. Do not attempt to give any

solid or liquid by mouth if exposed subject is unconscious

or semi-conscious. Wash out the mouth with water. If the

exposed subject is fully conscious, give plenty of water to

drink. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Water, foam, dry powder

or carbon dioxide

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: The substance is

combustible and will burn if involved in a fire.  It gives

off noxious fumes (eg. carbon and nitrogen oxides and

fluorine-containing compounds).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and a self-

contained breathing apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Personal Precautions: Fence or cordon the affected area and

do not allow individuals to touch or walk through the

spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective

clothing. Avoid dust generation.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent entry into waterways,

sewers, surface drainage systems and poorly ventilated

areas. If spill is outdoors, cover with plastic sheet to

minimise spreading or contact with rain.

Clean-up Methods: Collect and place it in a suitable,

properly labelled container for recovery or disposal.

Following removal of spillage, wash down spillage area with

copious amounts of water only if waste water can be directed

to an on-site waste treatment system.

Decontamination Procedures: No specific decontamination or

detoxification procedures have been identified for this

material. Consider use of water, detergent solutions, or

other soluble solvents for clean-up and decontamination

operations.

Avoid decontamination with oxidising agents such as

household bleach, which will release hazardous hydrochloric

acid vapours.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in comformity with

local regulations in order to avoid exposure by swallowing,

inhaling dust and skin and eye contact.

Where exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to the

appropriate international or national standards should be

worn:

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.

Furthermore, where respiratory protective equipment has to

be used, it must be capable of adequately controlling

exposure, suitable for the purpose and be of a type

conforming to the appropriate European Standards.  Air hood

to be to the standard of EN 270/EN 467.  Air suit to be to

the standard of EN 270/EN 467.  Air hood - disposable to be

to the standard of Plysu EN 270/EN 467.  Half face

Respirator to be to the standard of EN 140.  Powered

filtered air hood to be to the standard of EN 12941/EN 1835.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in tightly closed containers away from moisture and

away from sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged storage at

elevated temperatures (greater tan room temperature, approx.

20°C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance will be packed in black conductive liners

(minimum strength: 400 gauge). It will then be sub-packed in

a maximum of 20 kg net weight per individual liner

(liner must be closed by means of a recognised tie wrap or

heat seal).

Sub packs (up to three per keg), will be packed within one

large liner inside the final packaging container.

Fibre kegs (U.N. certified and stamped or other acceptable

certification) with security band will be used for the

packaging of the subpacks of the material. The capacity of

the drum can be suitable for holding up to three packs. Each

keg will be sealed with an appropriate tamper evident seal

mechanism.

A bulk box type container can also be used if appropriate

for the packaging and agreed with the notifier.

For material delivered on pallets the size will be, 4 way

entry, 1200 mm x 1000 mm and in good condition.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will be used exclusively by industry and

confined to industrial operations that constitute

predominantly closed systems.  Handling of the substance

will be by trained operators, and it will be kept to a

minimum.

Discharge to the environment will be minimal.  Recovery from

minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be

disposed of by incineration or landfill.  In principle it

may be possible to recover larger spillages of

uncontaminated material for subsequent use, but the notifier

will not do this in practice.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is harmful if swallowed and a severe eye

irritant.  It also has irritant effects on the skin and

presumably is irritant to the respiratory tract.  No

chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise these

hazardous properties.

The dust hazard will be minimized by appropriate handling

and storage eg. bonding and grounding.

The substance is classified with regards to the environment,

harmful to aquatic organisms and may cause long-term

adverse effects in the aquatic environment. Avoid release to

the environment and refer to special instructions/safety

data sheet.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations.  Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and

nitrogen oxides and fluorine-containing compounds) are forme

d.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged to the

sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: This substance will not be available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable. (See section 6.1.00)

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Not applicable.
