First-aid measures

General Advice:
First aiders should pay attention to self-protection and use recommended protective clothing. Never give fluids or induce vomiting if patient is unconscious or is having convulsions

Inhalation:Keep at rest. Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult a physician.

Skin Contact:Clean moistened skin with soap and water.

Eye Contact: Irrigate with flowing water immediately remove contact lenses after 2 minutes and continue irrigating for 15 minutes, also under eyelids. Consult medical personnel.

Ingestion:Rinse with plenty of water. If swallowed do not induce vomiting. Consult medical personnel

Medical attention and special treatment:
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water fog or fine spray. Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Do not use direct water stream as it may spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Carbon disulphide, a flammable, heavier than air gas, is produced on degradation
Incomplete combustion will give carbon oxides

Special protective equipment
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus and protective fire-fighting clothing(includes fire-fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots and gloves)

Environmental precautions
Dike and collect water used to fight fire

Other information
Cool containers/tanks with water spray. Move containers from fire area if it can be done without risk. Diluted xanthates stored in tanks evolves carbon disulphide which is heavier than air.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust.

Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Wear protective equipment to prevent skin and eye contact and breathing in vapours/dust. DO NOT allow material to get wet. Air-supplied masks are recommended to avoid inhalation of toxic material. Vacuum solid spills instead of sweeping.
Collect and seal in properly labelled containers or drums for disposal. Use non-sparking tools.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Avoid skin and eye contact and breathing in dust. In common with many organic chemicals, may form flammable dust clouds in air.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Keep away from sources of ignition
- No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place and out of direct sunlight Avoid contact with heat, moist air, and water. Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Keep dry - reacts with water, may lead to drum rupture. Keep containers closed when not in use - check regularly for spills.

Advice on safe handling
Use with adequate ventilation. Keep container closed. Even empty containers can contain vapours; do not cut, drill, grind or weld on or near empty containers Partially used containers should be isolated and kept cool and well ventilated before complete use – self heating on exposure to oxygen. Xanthate is used as a diluted produce and evolves carbon disulphide. Carbon disulphide is explosive and is heavier than air, tanks must be flushed with air to remove accumulated carbon disulphide before hot work.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls
Ensure ventilation is adequate and that air concentrations of decomposition product(s) is/are controlled below quoted Exposure Standards. Avoid generating and breathing in dusts. Use with local exhaust ventilation or while wearing dust mask. Keep containers closed when not in use.
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166 Use equipment for eye protection tested
and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).

Skin protection
Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices.
Wash and dry hands.
The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

Body Protection
Complete suit protecting against chemicals, The type of protective equipment must be selected
according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Respiratory protection
For nuisance exposures use type P95 (US) or type P1 (EU EN 143) particle respirator.For higher
level protection use type OV/AG/P99 (US) or type ABEK-P2 (EU EN 143) respirator cartridges.
Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards
such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).

Occupational Exposure Limits:
No value assigned for this specific material by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission. However, Exposure Standard(s) for decomposition product(s):
Carbon disulfide: 8hr TWA = 31 mg/m3 (10 ppm), Sk
As published by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission. TWA - The time-weighted average airborne concentration over an eight-hour working day, for a five-day working week over an entire working life.
`Sk' Notice - absorption through the skin may be a significant source of exposure. The exposure standard is invalidated if such contact should occur.
These Exposure Standards are guides to be used in the control of occupational health hazards. All
atmospheric contamination should be kept to as low a level as is workable. These exposure standards should not be used as fine dividing lines between safe and dangerous concentrations of chemicals. They are not a measure of relative toxicity.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product
Offer surplus and non-recyclable solutions to a licensed disposal company. Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber.

Waste disposal
- Segregate floor sweepings of xanthates. Dispose of immediately. Dissolve in high pH water, and reuse if possible. Do not cross contaminate with oxidizing agents or acids. Xanthates will smolder or cause an open fire.
- Empty bags should be disposed of as hazardous waste. Consult local regulations.
- Empty plywood/reconstituted particle boards comprising the xanthate boxes are usually recycled or burned as general refuse. If recycled, the metal reinforcements on the corners should be removed prior to sending to a recycling facility. Consult local authorities for proper disposal guidelines.

Contaminated packaging
Dispose of as unused product.
