First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes.
Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected areas with soap and water. Symptomatic
treatment.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry powder or foam.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.


Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity, and remove all
sources of ignition.


Wear protective clothing as detailed in Section 2.3.10


Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg.
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original substance containers.


Clean the spillage area with detergent and water.


Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166


When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
used. e.g. a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.


The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a
minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool dry place, away from strong oxidising agents
and sources of ignition.


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 60 litre capacity sealed plastic "Mauser" kegs, or cardboard
kegs.

powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be zero. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is a
skin sensitiser and is dangerous for the environment. There
is also cause for concern over potential mutagenicity on the
basis of a positive Ames test result observed with metabolic
activation. .

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.


The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate handling
and storage.


No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by
landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local
regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
must be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and
nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However, it is
predicted that adverse effects on sewage treatment systems
would be unlikely.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
