Eye contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. In the event of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Get medical attention.
Skin contact: In case of contact, wash affected area with soap and large amounts of water. Remove and wash any contaminated clothing. Dust may provoke skinirritation.
Inhalation: If inhaled, move to fresh air. Get immediate medical attention.
Ingestion: Rare in industry. If the person is unconscious, do not give anything to drink or induce vomiting. Get immediate medical attention.
Note to attending physician: There is no specific antidote. Please contact poison center.

Fire-fighting measures

Flammability of the product: This product is not flammable
Products of combustion: May evolve metal oxides fumes above melting point (cadmium oxides, tellurium oxides)
Extinguishing media:
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).

Accidental release measures

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 and storage

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


Stability and reactivity

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.

Disposal considerations

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.
