First-aid measures

- Inhalation : Remove victim to fresh air. Place the victim in semi-seated position. Allow the victim to rest. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Seek medical attention immediately.
- Skin contact : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water. Obtain medical attention if ill effect or irritation develops.
- Eye contact : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, for at least 15 minutes. Contact ophthalmologist immediately.
- Ingestion : DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Rinse mouth. If swallowed, give 1 pint ofwater if victim completely conscious/alert. Obtain medical attention.
- Note to physician : Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

- Flammable class : Not combustible.
- Extinguishing media
- Suitable : Water. Carbon dioxide. Dry chemical. Foam.
- Surrounding fires : Use water spray or fog for cooling exposed containers. Apply water spray or fog to cool nearby equipment.
- Special exposure hazards : Ignition of a dust cloud produces a weak explosion. Dust clouds are potentially very high sensitive to ignition from incendive electrostatic discharge. On exposure to high temperature, may decompose, releasing toxic gases. (CO, CO2 & NOx)
- Protection against fire : Use self-contained breathing apparatus (cfr. EN 137) and standard firefighting gear (cfr. EN 469) when in close proximity to fire. Avoid (reject) fire-fighting water to enter environment.
- Special procedures : Exercise caution when fighting any chemical fire.

Accidental release measures

- Technical measures : Eliminate every possible source of ignition.
- Personal precautions : Avoid dust production. Evacuate and limit access. No smoking. Equip cleanup crew with proper protection. See also section 8 of the SDS: Exposure controles/personal protection.
- Environmental precautions : Prevent entry to sewers and public waters. After spillage and/or leakage : Sweep or shovel spills into appropriate container for disposal. Use appropriate container to avoid environmental contamination.

Handling and storage

- Technical protective measures : Eliminate every possible source of ignition. Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud. Proper grounding procedures to avoid static electricity should be followed.
- Storage : May be stored at ambient temperature. Protect from high temperature. Protect from low temperatures. Store in a dry and dark area. Keep container closed when not in use. Eliminate every possible source of ignition. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.
- Storage - away from : Heat. Sparks. Open flame.
- Suitable packaging: : The product is stored in UN certified packaging: a double PE liner, packed in a fibredrum (1G/X../S). Use antistatic packing to store the product, to prevent electrostatic discharge when emptying the packing.
- Handling : Avoid dust production. Avoid all unnecessary exposure. Do not breathe dust. Ensure prompt removal from eyes, skin and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety procedures. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Wear suitable protective clothing. See also section 8 of the SDS: Exposure controles/personal protection.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Personal protective equipment
- Respiratory protection : Wear full face dust mask (cfr. EN 136) with P3-dust cannister (cfr. EN 143) for protection against dust.
- Hand protection : Wear suitable synthetic gloves (Category 3, Class 3) resistant to chemical penetration (cfr. EN 374).
- Skin protection : Wear a coverall type 5, specific for manipulation of solids (cfr. ISO 13982-1).
- Eye protection : See respiratory protection.
- Others : Wear suitable safety shoes (cfr. EN 345 S2).
- Industrial hygiene : Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.
Open handling not recommended. Use an adapted installation for handling substances not yet fully tested in a closed system, so that the OEL of the
product can be established.

Stability and reactivity

- Conditions to avoid : Direct sunlight. Heat. Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.
- Explosive properties : Dust explosion hazard
- Oxidising properties : No data available.
- Stability : Stable under normal conditions of temperature and pressure.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in a safe manner in accordance with local/national regulations. Dispose of this material and its container at hazardous or special waste collection point. Avoid release to the environment.
