Against Methaemoglobin anemia: Give 300 ml Toluidine blue intravenously or 1 to 2 mg/kg Methylene
blue intravenously.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
alcohol-resistant foam
dry powder
carbon dioxide
water spray jet

Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons:
Full water jet

Special hazards from the substance itself, its combustion products or from its vapours:
In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO)
Hydrogen chloride (HCl)
Nitrous gases (NOx)

Special protective equipment for firefighting:
Do not inhale explosion and/or combustion gases
Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Further information:
Fire residues and contaminated firefighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local
regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Use personal protective clothing.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Remove persons to safety.

Environmental precautions:
Do not allow entry to drains,water courses or soil
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water
If the product gets into drains, inform the relevant authorities immediately.

Methods for cleaning up/taking up:
Take up with suitable equipment and if necessary collect in closed containers
Avoid raising dust
Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations
When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with the regulations.

Handling and storage

This substance should be handled under strictly controlled conditions as specified in REACH Article 18 (4).
Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements in accordance with risk-based management
system should be available at each manufacturing site.

Advice on safe handling:
Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary).
Avoid the formation and deposition of dust.
Provide exhaust ventilation if dust is formed.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
In principle, with organic products which are -intentionally or unintentionally- in powdered form, the
danger of a dust explosion should be kept in mind.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charges - earthing necessary during loading
operations.
Keep away from sources of ignition - refrain from smoking.
Dust can form an explosive mixture with air.
Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection

Temperature class : T2

Dust explosion class : ST1 Capable of dust explosion

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels:
Keep only in the original container
Advice on storage compatibility
Do not store or transport together with foodstuffs
Further information on storage conditions
Keep container tightly closed in a well-ventilated place
Protect from heat and direct sunlight

Exposure controls / personal protection

This substance should be handled under strictly controlled conditions as specified in REACH Article 18 (4).
Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements in accordance with risk-based management
system should be available at each manufacturing site.

General protective measures:
Do not inhale dust
Avoid contact with eyes and skin
Hygiene measures
Do not eat, drink or smoke during work time.
Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.
Garments that cannot be cleaned must be destroyed (burnt).
Keep away from foodstuffs and beverages.
Clean hands and face during work intervals and after work
Avoid contact of the substance.

Respiratory protection : Dust mask

Hand protection : Nitrile rubber applied on knitted cotton for mechanical stress.
Leather gloves
Because this glove is used only for mechanical protection, the
minimum breakthrough time and thickness are not relevant to safety.

For long-term exposure:
Butyl rubber gloves.
These types of protective gloves are offered by various
manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements,
especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum
breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions
under which the gloves are being used., With solid dry substances
permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for
this protective glove has not been measured.

Eye protection : tightly fitting safety glasses

Body protection : protective clothing

Stability and reactivity

Thermal decomposition : from 290 °C
Method : DTA

Hazardous reactions:
When handled and stored appropriately no dangerous reactions are known
