Extinguishers that must not be used for safety reasons:
Do not use water or halogenated extinguishing media.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE:
Respirable dust.

ADVICE FOR FIRE FIGHTERS:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing and gloves must be worn in case of fire. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated firefighting media in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Avoid inhalation of the dust and/or fumes. Wear suitable clothing, breathing protection (P3 filter) and face protection.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Take action to prevent the substance from ending up in drainage pipes, surface water and the soil.

METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP
Material for containment:
No data
Methods for cleaning up:
Ventilate the area thoroughly.
Restrict the area to those persons wearing respiratory protection. Do not allow unprotected people into the area until clean-up has been completed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

CONTROL PARAMETERS
Occupational exposure limit values: Current OELs in Belgium
Tin 2 mg/m3 Lead 0.15 mg/m3 Zinc 5 mg/m3 Antimony 0,5 mg/m3 Arsenic 0.05 mg/m3 (0.16 short term)
Other limit values: Critical DNEL’s
In accordance with Article 10 of the REACH regulation (1907/2006/EC), a joint CSA was performed on the UVCB substance, upon requ est the DNEL’s are available on the constituents.
Other limit values: Critical Environmental limits PNEC
In accordance with Article 10 of the REACH regulation (1907/2006/EC), a joint CSA was performed on the UVCB substance, upon requ est the PNEC’s are available on the constituents.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS

Technical protection measures:
Local exhaust ventilation with enclosure and general ventilation are required in case of emission of dust/aerosol in air. Suction nozzles of local ventilation should be located at or below work level. Air outtakes of general ventilation should be located at the top of the room and air intakes should be located at the bottom of the room.
Personal Protection:
Avoid direct contact with the material. If the concentration level is determined and known, select appropriate personal protection measures taking into account the concentration at the given workplace, exposure length and works performed by the given employee as well as the instructions provided by the producer of the personal protection equipment.
Eye/face protection:
Protective goggles (EN 166).
Skin protection:
Protective clothing (EN 347, EN 340).
Body /hand protection:
Work gloves against dust (EN 388).
Respiratory protection:
With dust or fume formation: P3-mask (EN 149).
Personal hygiene:
Wash hands thoroughly after work to prevent oral ingestion. Do not eat, drink or smoke in the workplace.
Environmental exposure controls:
Take action to prevent the substance from getting into drainage pipes, surface water and the soil.
