If inhaled :  If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of skin contact :  Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off with soap and water. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of eye contact :  Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Consult a physician.

If swallowed :  If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Call a physician immediately.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms : Causes eye burns.

4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment : Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing media :  Water mist Dry powder Foam Carbon dioxide (CO2) Sand Aqueous film forming foam (AFFF). Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Unsuitable extinguishing media :  Water spray jet

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture Hazardous combustion products  :  Carbon oxides Hydrogen chloride gas Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

5.3 Advice for firefighters Special protective equipment for firefighters :  In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.  

Further information :  In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Avoid dust formation.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions :  Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions :  Should not be released into the environment. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up :  Large spills: Sweep up or vacuum with HEPA filter or via wet cleaning into suitable containers for disposal. Pick up and arrange without creating dust. Keep in properly labelled containers. Small spills: Moisten a towel, cover the spill, pick up the spill or use HEPA vacuum. Large spills + Small spills: Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Treat recovered material as described in the section "Disposal considerations".

6.4 Reference to other sections Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8., For disposal information, see section 13

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling : Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations. To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat. Use personal protective equipment as required. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion :  Avoid dust formation.  

Hygiene measures :  Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.  

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers :  To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight. Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.     Keep refrigerated.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control possible exposures. Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep exposure levels below recommended exposure limits. All personal protective equipment should be based on a risk assessment. Consult a Environment Health Safety expert if necessary.

Personal protective equipment

Eye protection :  Face-shield

Hand protection    

Material : Nitrile rubber

Remarks : Impervious gloves Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact).  

Skin and body protection :  closed work clothing disposable one-piece overall with integral hood

Respiratory protection :  Engineering controls should always be the primary method of controlling exposures. If respiratory protective equipment is needed for certain activities, the type as well as the corresponding protection factor will depend upon the risk assessment and air concentrations, hazards, physical and warning properties of substances present. Use only respiratory protection that conforms to international/ national standards. Suitable mask with particle filter P3

Protective measures :  The type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity None reasonably foreseeable.

10.2 Chemical stability Stable under recommended storage conditions.

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions Hazardous reactions  :  Risk of dust explosion.

10.4 Conditions to avoid

Conditions to avoid : To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat. Heat, flames and sparks. Protect from frost, heat and sunlight. Exposure to moisture Exposure to air

10.5 Incompatible materials

Materials to avoid :  Oxidizing agents

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon oxides, Chlorides

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods Product :  Must be incinerated in a suitable incineration plant holding a permit delivered by the competent authorities. In accordance with National, Federal, State and Local regulations.

Contaminated packaging :  Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
