First-aid measures

Inhalation
If symptoms are experienced, move victim to fresh air and obtain medical advice.

Ingestion
Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water. If irritation or discomfort occurs, obtain medical advice immediately.

Skin
Wash with soap and water. If irritation persists, obtain medical advice. Remove contaminated clothes.

Eye
Do not allow victim to rub eye(s). Flush with lukewarm, gently flowing water for 15 minutes or until particle is removed. If irritation persists, obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media:
Suitable Extinguishing Media: CO2, water
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: None

Special Hazards: None

Hazardous Combustion Products: None

Advice for Fire-fighters:
Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus with chemical resistant gloves should be worn. Protective clothing should conform with European standard EN469, as a minimum.
Keep containers cool with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures:
Avoid breathing dust. Use appropriate personal protective equipment (please see "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection" below for details).

Environmental Precautions:
Do not wash away into sewer.

Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up:
Sweep slowly spilled powder on to paper, and carefully transfer into a waste container. Clean remainder with wet paper, wet cloth or a vacuum cleaner.
If a vacuum cleaner is used, it must rate as a dust explosion-proof type. Fine powder can form explosive dust-air mixtures.

Handling and storage

The substance should be handled under conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with any local regulations in order to avoid unnecessary exposure.
Precautions for Safe Handling:
Avoid breathing dust. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas; wash hands after use and to remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities:
Store in a cool, dry area, away from direct sunlight and/or ignition sources.
Keep away from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed.

Specific End Uses:
Raw material for toner.

Exposure controls / personal protection

The provision of personal protective equipment and the need to provide engineering control measures should be decided upon by the user as part of a formal exposure risk assessment.
Based upon the available toxicological information the protective measures described below should be regarded as a minimum.

1. Technical protection measures
Engineering Controls:
Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls are recommended.

2. Hand protection
Chemical protective gloves to a Standard EN374 should be provided. Usage periods should not exceed the breakthrough times for the chemical stated by the manufacturer of the glove.

3. Body protection
Handling of the material should be done wearing chemical protective clothing suitable for protection against the chemical as classified by Standard EN368.

4. Eye protection
Eye protection should be used when handling the substance. The protection should be capable of giving chemical protection as classified in EN166. Wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles.

5. Respiratory protection
Based upon current information and in the absence of occupational exposure limits the use of a dust mask to a minimum standard of EN149 FFPI/vapour mask to a minimum standard of EN405 FFA1 is recommended.

Reactivity: None
Chemical Stability: The substance is considered to be stable under normal ambient and anticipated storage and handling conditions of temperature and pressure.
Possibility of Hazardous Reactions: None
Conditions to Avoid: None
Incompatible Materials: Avoid strong oxidants
Hazardous Decomposition Products: None

Disposal considerations

Waste Treatment Methods:
Dispose of by incineration or landfill in accordance with local regulations.
