First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure area and allow to rest in fresh air. Seek medical advice if cough or other symptoms develop.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation develops or persist.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and promptly wash exposed areas with large amounts of soap and water. Seek medical
attention if irritation develops or persist.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Ingestion is not considered a potential route of exposure. However, if this happens, rinse mouth with water. Seek
medical attention urgently (treat symptometically).

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water.
Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon dioxide and carbon
monoxide).
Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand MSHA/NIOSH ( approved or equivalent) must be worn.
Avoid breathing smoke, fumes and decomposition products.
Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.
Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to the relevant national or international standards.
Avoid dust formation. Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg. sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in the same way as the original substance containers.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.
Avoid prolonged contact with skin or eyes. Do not handle in a manner that creates excessive dust. Provide appropriate ventilation and secure container after each use.
Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the substance.
When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate international or national standards as follows;
*Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374
*Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368
*Eye protection to Standard EN166
Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure, be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate international or national standards, such as a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.
These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Should be stored in a dry well ventilated area. Container should be kept secure after use. Avoid extreme temperatures.
Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 10kg tyvek bags.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Handle in the presence of adequate ventilation and avoid production of dust. It is advised that contact is avoided with skin and eyes; gloves and goggles are recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Material is not reactive towards water or other solvents. It is sensitive to strong acids, but reaction is not hazardous .
Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.
Dust explosion: Under normal conditions of use this material does not present a significant explosion hazard. However, as with most powder samples, explosive mixtures can be formed with sufficient concentrations of dust combined with air.
Dust explosion determined by test: No

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge of the substance is not considered economically or technically feasible, as such, waste material should be disposed of by the appropriate methods.
Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not Applicable - No hazardous properties have been identified as a result of the notification studies.
Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The preparation is used to crystalise plastics. These plastics will be disposed of with other municipal waste at landfilled sites at the end of their life-cycle. There is no leakage or discharge of the notified substance at this life cycle stage as it is completely consumed in the chemical reactions involved in the crystalisation of these plastics.
Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Contaminated items containing the substance or clean-up from spillages should be disposed of by incineration by burning under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local regulation.
Stack gases should be scrubbed, because noxious gases, namely oxides of carbon along with calcium containing compounds could be formed.
Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to the aqueous environment.
Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.
