Personal precautions:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation or ingestion.

Environmental precautions:
Alert neighbours of possible eye and respiratory irritation risk. Prevent entry into canals, drains and other watercourses. Only allow into surface water drains fitted with suitable filters.

Methods for cleaning up:
Spillages should be removed immediately by a vacuum system. If not immediately available, spray with clean water and remove mechanically avoiding entry to watercourses. Send material in suitable sealed containers for recovery or disposal.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Avoid generating airborne dust wherever possible. Provide good ventilation in working areas (provide local dust extraction where necessary). Protective equipment must be used if exposure limits are exceeded.
