First-aid measures

- Inhalation: Assure fresh air breathing. Place the victim in semi-seated position. Allow the victim to rest. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Obtain medical attention if breathing difficulty and/or other complaints appear.
- Skin contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, for at least 5 minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes. Eventually wash skin 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. Obtain medical attention if pain, blinking, tears or redness persist.
- Ingestion: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Rinse mouth. If swallowed, give 1 pint ofwater if victim completely conscious/alert. Seek medical advice.
- Note to physician: Treat symptomatically. No specific antidote known.

Fire-fighting measures

- Flammable class : This material is classified as not combustible although it can support limited propagating combustion.
- Extinguishing media
* Suitable : Water. Dry chemical. Foam.
* Not to be used : Carbon dioxide.
- Surrounding fires : Apply water spray or fog to cool nearby equipment. Use water spray or fog for cooling exposed containers.
- Special exposure hazards : High pressure is produced during a dust explosion: 4 - 8. Dust clouds are very high sensitive to ignition from incendive electrostatic discharge. Dust clouds are potentially very high sensitive to ignition from incendive electrostatic discharge. Quantity of dust may be sufficient to burn in open air or explode if confined, when mixed with air and exposed to ignition source. Under fire conditions, highly hazardous fumes will be present: CO, CO2 & SOx.
- Protection against fire : Use self-contained breathing apparatus (cfr. EN 137) and standard firefighting gear (cfr. EN 469) when in close proximity to fire. Exercise caution when fighting any chemical fire.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions : Avoid dust production. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus, and protective clothing. Keep public away from danger area.
- Environmental precautions : Prevent entry to sewers and public waters.
- After spillage and/or leakage : Sweep or shovel spills into appropriate container for disposal.

Handling and storage

- General : Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.
- Prevention : Handle the product in closed equipment and if possible under an inert atmosphere. Sufficient local or general ventilation. Explosion proof electrical equipment . Earth the equipment and take enough time to remove the electrostatic charges. Do not use compressed air to handle the product.
- Storage : May be stored at ambient temperature. Protect from low temperatures. Protect from high temperature. Store in dry, well-ventilated 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 : Avoid prolonged storage at elevated temperatures (>20°C). Sources of ignition.
- 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 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.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- 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

- Hazardous decomposition products : On exposure to high temperature, may decompose, releasing toxic gases. CO, CO2 & SOx.
- Thermal decomposition possible from (°C) : No data available.
- Conditions to avoid : Direct sunlight. Heat. Eliminate every possible source of ignition. Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.

Disposal considerations

Disposal : 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.
