First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, move
exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is
difficult or ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give
oxygen as appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept
warm and at rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known
or possible over exposure, or with symptoms including chest
pain, difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness or other
adverse effects, which may be delayed.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water.
Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove
contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large
amounts of water. Obtain medical attention if skin reaction
occurs, which may be immediate or delayed.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: No special requirments needed. Water is recommended for
fires involving packaging

Product arising from burning: This product in non-combustible.

Toxic, corrosive or flammable thermal decomposition
products, which might include fluorine and sulphur
compounds, are expected when the material is exposed to
fire.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.



Fight fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow
individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material
unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Avoid dust
generation.



Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage
systems and poorly ventilated areas. If spill is outdoors,
cover with plastic sheet to minimise spreading or contact
with rain.


Collect and place it in a suitable, properly labelled
container for recovery or disposal. Following removal of
spillage, wash down spillage area with copious amounts of
water only if waste water can be directed to an on-site
waste water treatment system.



No specific decontamination or detoxification procedures
have been identified for this material. Consider use of
water, detergent solutions or other soluble solvents (if
specified in Section 9 of this SDS), for clean-up and
decontamination operations.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.

Depending upon the scale of the operation, use of
appropriate exhaust ventilation is recommended to provide
routine control of fire and explosion hazards during
handling of this material.


Ignition Controls: Bond and earth (ground) all plant and
equipment to ensure that no isolated conductors are present.
Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient electrostatic
charge to produce discharges of many hundreds of milli-
Joules. Consider earthing (grounding) personnel dealing with
dusty operations. An isolated (insulated) human body can
readily produce electrostatic discharges in excess of 50mJ,
but have been recorded up to 100 mJ. The maximum surface
temperature of enclosures potentially exposed to this
material should be the lower of the values obtained by
taking 2/3 of the minimum ignition temperature for a dust
cloud or 75 K less than the minimum ignition temperature of
the dust layer, with a maximum temperature of 325 Deg C.


Protective Systems: Assess operations based upon available
dust explosion information to determine the suitability of
preventive or protective systems as precautionary measures
against possible dust explosions. If prevention is not
possible, consider protection by use of containment, venting
or suppression of dust handling equipment. Where explosion
venting is considered the most appropriate method of
protection, vent areas should preferably be calculated based
on the Kst rather than the St value. If nitrogen purging is
considered as the protective system, it must operate with
an oxygen level below the limiting oxygen concentration. The
system should include an oxygen monitoring and shut down
facility in the event of excessive oxygen being detected.


At both ambient and low humidity, this material is of low
conductivity. Generation of electrostatic charge is
considered likely to occur even when handled in an earthed
(grounded) environment.


At both an ambient and low humidity, this material has a
very long charge relaxation time. Accumulation of
electrostatic charge is considered very likely to occur even
when handled in an earthed environment. Under these
conditions, it is considered that this material might
present a very high risk of producing an electrostatic
discharge.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from
moisture and away from sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged
storage at elevated temperatures (> room temperature,
approximately 20 Deg C).

Danger other than fire: None reported

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: Ignition of a dust cloud produces a strong explosion.

Dust clouds are sensitive to electrostatic ignition.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and as such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover large spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The dust hazard will be minimized by appropriate handling
and storage.



No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. stack gases
should be scrubbed, beacause noxious fumes (eg carbon,
sulphur, fluorine and nitrogen containing compounds.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on the sewage treatment system would be
unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
