First-aid measures

Inhalation :
Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If
not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial
respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person
providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse
health effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and
get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing
such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Ingestion :
Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air
and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been
swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to
drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not
induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs,
the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical
attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get
medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such
as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Skin contact :
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention. Wash
clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact :
Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact
lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician.

Protection of first-aiders :
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. It
may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Notes to physician :
Symptomatic treatment and supportive therapy as indicated. Following severe
exposure the patient should be kept under medical review for at least 48 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :
Use dry chemical powder.

Non suitable extinguishing media :
Do not use water jet.

Special exposure hazards :
Fine dust clouds may form explosive mixtures with air.
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if
there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable
training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water
spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

Hazardous thermal decomposition products :
Decomposition products may include the following materials:
carbon dioxide
carbon monoxide
sulfur oxides
halogenated compounds
metal oxide/oxides

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters :
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure
mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves)
conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for
chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions :
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all ignition sources.
No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing dust. Provide
adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions :
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental
pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods for cleaning up :
Move containers from spill area. Approach the release from upwind. Prevent entry
into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up
material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Avoid creating dusty
conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof
equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling :
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Eating, drinking
and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and
processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and
smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering
eating areas. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Avoid
breathing dust. Avoid the creation of dust when handling and avoid all possible
sources of ignition (spark or flame). Prevent dust accumulation. Use only with
adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible
material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Electrical equipment and lighting
should be protected to appropriate standards to prevent dust coming into contact
with hot surfaces, sparks or other ignition sources. Take precautionary measures
against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity
during transfer by earthing and bonding containers and equipment before
transferring material. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous
. Do not reuse container.

Storage :
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area
. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated
area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and
drink. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep
container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been
opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store
in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental
contamination.

Use original container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Recommended monitoring procedures :
If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace
atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness
of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory
protective equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for
methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents and
national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous
substances.

Occupational exposure controls :
Use only with adequate ventilation. If user operations generate dust, fumes, gas,
vapour or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other
engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any
recommended or statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas,
vapour or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use explosion-proof
ventilation equipment.

Environmental exposure controls :
Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure
they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some
cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment
will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Respiratory protection :
In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Respirator selection
must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product
and the safe working limits of the selected respirator.

Hand protection :
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should
be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates
this is necessary.

Eye protection :
Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists or
dusts. If operating conditions cause high dust concentrations to be produced, use
dust goggles.

Skin protection :
Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task
being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist
before handling this product.
Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before
eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period.
Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and
safety showers are close to the workstation location.
