First-aid measures

Eye contact
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get
medical attention if irritation occurs.
Skin contact
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash
clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention if symptoms
occur.
Inhalation
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Ingestion Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. If potentially dangerous quantities of this material have been
swallowed, call a physician immediately. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Fire-fighting measures

Flammability of the product - May be combustible at high temperature.
Auto-ignition temperature - 398°C (748.4°F) (Dust cloud in air); 190oC (374oF) (Dust layer in air)
Flash point - Closed cup: 232°C (449.6°F) [Pensky-Martens.]
Explosion limits - Lower: 0.00288% ( w/v ) (28.8 g/m³ ) ( Dust in air )
Fire/explosion hazards - Fine dust clouds may form explosive mixtures with air. High dust concentrations have a potential
for combustion or explosion.
Unusual fire/explosion hazards - Handling of this product may generate static electricity, which can present an ignition hazard in
some cases.
Extinguishing media
Suitable - In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam or dry chemical.
Not suitable - Do not use water jet.
Fire-fighting procedures - Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire.
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Hazardous combustion products - Combustion products may include the following:
carbon oxides (CO, CO2) (carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide)
Protective clothing (fire) - Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode. Dynamic risk
assessment is to be used throughout mitigation of the incident.

Accidental release measures

Environmental precautions
Avoid breathing dust. Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Eliminate all
ignition sources if safe to do so. Water spray or water fog can be used to remove dust particles
from the air. Do not use water jet. Wetting the spilled material with water spray or water fog will
reduce the amount of airborne dust that is created when the material is cleaned up. Inform the
relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or
air).
Personal protection in case of a large spill
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate
surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or
walk through spilled material. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when
ventilation is inadequate. Chemical/Dust Goggles. Full suit. Boots. Gloves. If dust is generated
and ventilation is inadequate, use respirator that will protect against dust/mist. If concentration is
unknown, a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) should be used to avoid inhalation of the
product.
Methods for cleaning up
Large spill - Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or
confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labeled waste container.
Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Note: see Section 1 for emergency contact
information and Section 13 for waste disposal.
Small spill - For small spills and small amounts of material left after a large spill has been collected, sweep or
vacuum the area and place the spilled material in an appropriate container for disposal in
accordance with local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling
Avoid breathing dust. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. This material can form
combustible dust/air suspensions that are ignitable under some conditions. Dust accumulations
should be avoided. Avoid generating dust and fine dust dispersed in air. Dust in the presence of
an ignition source creates a potential combustible dust hazard. Electrostatic charges of sufficient
energy to ignite combustible dusts may be created during transport of material or material transfer
between containers. Proper assessment of the risk potential should be made for each individual
situation and appropriate mitigation measures taken. Refer to NFPA 654 and NFPA 77 for
procedures regarding fire and explosion hazards relating to combustible dust. The need for
additional measures for explosion protection should also be evaluated (see NFPA 68--Guide for
Venting of Deflagrations; and NFPA 69--Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems). Wash
thoroughly after handling.
Storage
Keep container in a cool, well-ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until
ready for use. Avoid all possible sources of ignition (spark or flame).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure limits
This product does not have any assigned OELs.
Some states may enforce more stringent exposure limits.
Control Measures
If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust
ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or
statutory limits.
Hygiene measures
Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating,
smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques
should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before
reusing.
Personal protection
Eyes - Avoid contact with eyes. Chemical/Dust Goggles
Skin and body - None required; however, use of protective clothing is good industrial practice.
Respiratory - Use with adequate ventilation.
If dust is generated and ventilation is inadequate, use respirator that will protect against dust/mist.
If concentration is unknown, a Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) should be used to
avoid inhalation of the product.
Hands - None required; however, use of gloves is good industrial practice.
Consult your supervisor or Standard Operating Procedure (S.O.P) for special handling instructions.

Stability and reactivity

Stability and reactivity - The product is stable.
Possibility of hazardous reactions - Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous reactions will not occur.
Conditions to avoid - Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
High dust concentrations have a potential for combustion or explosion.
Incompatibility with various substances - Reactive or incompatible with the following materials: oxidizing materials.
None identified.
Hazardous decomposition products - Decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides (CO, CO2) (carbon
monoxide, carbon dioxide)
Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous decomposition products should not be

Disposal considerations

Waste information
The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Empty containers or
liners may retain some product residues. This material and its container must be disposed of in a
safe way. Dispose of surplus and non-recyclable products via a licensed waste disposal
contractor. 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 local
authority requirements. Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil,
waterways, drains and sewers.
NOTE: The generator of waste has the responsibility for proper waste identification (based on characteristic(s) or listing),
transportation and disposal
