First-aid measures

•General Indication:
Seek medical treatment when symptoms appear.

•Product Inhaled:
Supply fresh air, consult doctor in case of complaints.

•Product on Skin:
Generally the product does not irritate the skin, but in any case, wash thoroughly with water and soap.

•Product in Eye:
Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.

•Product Ingested/swallowed:
Keep patient at rest and seek medical advice.

•The following symptoms may occur:
Asthma attacks and Allergic reactions

Fire-fighting measures

•Extinguishing Media:
-Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam,
-Unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water with full jet (for safety reasons)

•Protective Equipment:
Dust mask, gloves and overalls. Self-contained respiratory protective device should be worn.

•Special hazards caused by the substance, its products of combustion or resulting gases:
In the event of a fire, toxic and combustible gases can be formed. If a fire breaks out nearby, pressure build up and danger of bursting are possible. In the case of exothermal disintegration (‘characteristic’ heavy white smoke development) and a nearby fire, spray or douse intensively with a lot of water immediately to guarantee quick cooling.

•Other Information:
Azodicarbonamide will only burn if it is exposed to a flame and is self extinguishing when the flame is removed.

Accidental release measures

•Person-related safely precautions:
Avoid formation of dust / Keep away from ignition sources / Wear protective clothing

•Measures for environmental protection:
Do not allow to enter sewers / surface or ground water. Spillages should be removed by vacuum cleaner, taking care to avoid creating a dust cloud.

•Measures for cleaning/collecting:
Pick up mechanically, by vacuum cleaner or cover with inert material and sweep up. Dispose of the material collected according to regulations. Dispose contaminated material as waste according to disposal consideration.

Handling and storage

Information for safe handling:
-Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.
-Prevent formation of dust.
-Any unavoidable deposit of dust must be regularly removed.
-Use appropriate industrial vacuum cleaners or central vacuum systems for dust removal.
-Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace.
-Do not raising dust. Do not breathe dust and thermal decomposition products. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.

Information about fire and explosion protection:
-Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.
-Protect against electrostatic charges.
-Dust can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.
-Keep respiratory protective device available.

Requirements to be met by warehouses places and receptacles:
-Store only in the original receptacle.
-Store in a cool location.
-Keep at temperature not exceeding 50°C

Information about storage in one common storage facility:
-Do not store together with reducing agents, heavy-metal compounds, acids and alkalis (with which it react).

Further information about storage conditions:
-Protect from heat and direct sunlight.
-Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed receptacles.
-Protect from humidity and water.
-Packaging containing Azodicarbonaimide shouldn’t be stacked more than two pallets high or compaction may occur.

Exposure controls / personal protection

•Occupational exposure standards (HSE / MAK / ACGIH)
ACGIH TLV: TWA 5 mg/m3 // NIOSH REL: TWA 5 mg/m3.

•Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures:
-In general ensure good personal hygiene.
-During processing, ensure efficient ventilation in the working area.
-Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
-Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Respiratory protection:
-Dust mask.
-Good ventilation is desirable and respiratory protection during dust formation.
-In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device (filter P2).
-In case of intensive or longer exposure, use self-contained respiratory protective device.

Protection of hands:
-Protective gloves.
-The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.
-Preventive skin protection by use of skin-protecting agents is recommended.

Eye protection:
-Safety glasses

Body protection:
-Protective work clothing

Stability and reactivity

•Thermal decomposition /conditions to be avoided:
-No decomposition if used and stored according to specifications.
-To avoid to store close to alkalis.
-To avoid thermal decomposition do not overheat.

> 75 °C

•Incompatible materials:

•Dangerous reactions:
-With strong reducing agent.
-Exothermic reaction.
-Risk of dust explosion.

•Dangerous decomposition products:

Disposal considerations

•Product - Recommendation
- Must not be disposed together with household garbage. Do not allow product to reach sewage system.
- After prior treatment product has to be disposed of in an incinerator for hazardous waste adhering to the regulations pertaining to the disposal of particularly hazardous waste.

•Uncleaned packaging - Recommendation
-Non contaminated packaging may be recycled.
-Empty contaminated packaging thoroughly. They may be recycled after thorough and proper cleaning.
-Packaging that may not be cleaned have to be disposed of in the same manner as the product.
-Disposal must be made according to official regulations.
