First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

General advice: If potential for exposure exists refer to Section 8 for specific personal protective equipment.  

Inhalation: Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.  

Skin Contact: Wash skin with plenty of water.  

Eye Contact: Flush eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes.  Remove contact lenses after the initial 1-2 minutes and continue flushing for several additional minutes.  If effects occur, consult a physician, preferably an ophthalmologist.  May cause injury due to mechanical action.  

Ingestion: No emergency medical treatment necessary.  

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Aside from the information found under Description of first aid measures (above) and Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed (below), no additional symptoms and effects are anticipated.

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

No specific antidote.  Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media

Water.  Dry chemical fire extinguishers.  Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers.

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous Combustion Products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating.  Combustion products may include and are not limited to:  Nitrogen oxides.  Carbon monoxide.  Carbon dioxide.  

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Container may rupture from gas generation in a fire situation.  Pneumatic conveying and other mechanical handling operations can generate combustible dust.  To reduce the potential for dust explosions, do not permit dust to accumulate.  

5.3 Advice for firefighters

Fire Fighting Procedures: Keep people away.  Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.  Soak thoroughly with water to cool and prevent re-ignition.  Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire is out and danger of reignition has passed.  Fight fire from protected location or safe distance. Consider the use of unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles.  Immediately withdraw all personnel from the area in case of rising sound from venting safety device or discoloration of the container.  Hand held dry chemical or carbon dioxide extinguishers may be used for small fires.  Move container from fire area if this is possible without hazard.  

Special Protective Equipment for Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves).  If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering the area.  Use appropriate safety equipment. For additional information, refer to Section 8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.  

Environmental precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. See Section 12, Ecological Information.  

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Contain spilled material if possible.  Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers.  See Section 13, Disposal Considerations, for additional information.
