First-aid measures

General information: Avoid chance of exposure by any feasible way.
After inhalation: Move the affected person to fresh air. If breathing becomes irregular or ceases, apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or artifical respiration immediately. Get medical attention.
After skin contact: Immediately wash off the contaminated skin with plenty of water. Immediately remove contaminated clothing, wash off the skin with plenty of water.
After eye contact: Rinse the eyes with water for several minutes with eyelids open wide. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Having rinsed the eyes, obtain ophthalmologic attention as soon as possible.
After swallowing: Wash out the mouth with plenty of water, give plenty of water to drink, then obtain medical attenton immediately. Induce vomiting when the affected person is not unconscious.
Information for doctor: The physician must be informed on the time, type and extent of exposure. If needed, show the safety data sheet to the physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: water, Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: none in particular.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Do not inhale explosion and combustion gases. Burning produces heavy smoke.
Advice for firefighters: Use suitable breathing apparatus, collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately, this must not be discharged into drains, move undamaged containers from immediate hazard area if it can be done safely.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid direct contact between the personnel and the substance.
Only the trained personnel in charge of release is allowed to be present at the site of spilling, wearing the prescribed protective equipments.
Environmental precautions: Hinder the spilled substance from entering the soil, sewers or living water.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Collect spilt substance aspiring to the lowest possible dust-level. Put the collected substance into adequately labelled empties and transport them to the site of disposal, then wash the contaminated area with plenty of water.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Handled it the compliance with good industrial hygiene and safety procedures.
All work processes must always be designed so minimize or exclude the risk of exposure.
Avoid any possibility of direct contact with substance while manipulating.
Avoid: dust formation; deposition, contact with skin, eyes; inhalation or ingestion.
If dust develop, explosive dust/air mixture may develop.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store it in a cool, dry, well-ventilated, free from direct sunlight place.
Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Do not store in unlabelled containers.
Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
Storage temperature: 15-30 °C. Outer packing: paper sack. Inner packing: PP sack.
Do not store together with substances specified in section Stability and reactivity.
