First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air, seek medical attention if

irritation develops.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate with gentle running water for at least 15 minutes,

seek medical attention if irritation develops.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected area with a large volume of water. If

irritation develops seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,

nitrogen and sulfur together with some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Protective clothing and a self contained breathing apparatus

should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear full protective clothing (see 2.3.1).

Local spillage: Sweep carefully into a plastic liner and

contain within a tared plastic labelled drum. Avoid

dispersing dust into the air. Flush contaminated area with

copious quantities of water.

Large spillages: Sweep up throughly into clean polyethylene

liners and place in an appropriately labelled drum. Flood

the area with copious quantities of water to drain.

Dispose of containers and all washings by incineration in

accordance with local regulations. Prevent washings from

entering water supplies. (Any dilution should be at least a

thousand fold.)

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Protective

rubber gloves (14 inch PVC gauntlets), paper suits, safety

glasses (BS2092) and a dust mask should be worn. Where dust

generation cannot be avoided, provide and use local exhaust

ventilation. Where local exhaust ventilation is

impracticable, wear an approved face mask.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area. The substance

should be stored in the original container, which should be

correctly labelled and kept tightly closed.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Fibre board 25 kg drums double lined with antistatic

polyethylene liners, closed with a lever closing ring.
