General: CAUTION! First aid personnel must be aware of own risk during rescue!

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation: Move to fresh air.
Skin Contact: Destroy or thoroughly clean contaminated shoes. Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes and wash skin with soap and plenty of water. If skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction develops, get medical attention.
Eye contact: Immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.
Ingestion: Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Never give liquid to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting without advice from poison control center.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards: No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Extinguish with foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder or water fog.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed.

3 Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures: No data available.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Keep unauthorized personnel away. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing.

2 Environmental Precautions: Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Avoid release to the environment.

3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Remove the dust with an suck up-system. Avoid swirling.

Handling and storage

1 Precautions for safe handling:
Do not taste or swallow. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.

2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store locked up.

3 Specific end use(s):
Reserved for industrial and professional use.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1 Control Parameters
Occupational Exposure Limits: None of the components have assigned exposure limits.

2 Exposure controls
Appropriate Engineering Controls: Provide adequate ventilation.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:
* General information: Provide easy access to water supply and eye wash facilities. Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level. Follow training instructions when handling this material.
* Eye/face protection: Safety goggles. EN 166.
* Skin protection
* Hand Protection:
Chemical resistant gloves Protective gloves complying with EN 374. Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier.
Other: Safety clothes : long sleeved clothing EN13688
* Respiratory Protection: Dust filter P3 (for especially fine dust/powder).
* Hygiene measures: Do not eat, drink or smoke when using the product. Wash hands after handling. Do not get in eyes. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of the workplace. Avoid contact with skin.
* Environmental Controls: Do not empty into drains.

Stability and reactivity

1 Reactivity: Material is stable under normal conditions.
2 Chemical Stability: Material is stable under normal conditions.
3 Possibility of hazardous reactions: Not known.
4 Conditions to avoid: Avoid heat or contamination.
5 Incompatible Materials: None known.
6 Hazardous Decomposition Products: By heating and fire, harmful vapors/gases may be formed.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
* General information: Disposal considerations (including disposal of contaminated containers or packaging) Dispose of waste at an appropriate treatment and disposal facility in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and product characteristics at time of disposal.
* Disposal methods: Discharge, treatment, or disposal may be subject to national, state, or local laws. Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses. Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
