First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appriopriate personal protective equipment, move
exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is difficult or
ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as
appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept warm and at
rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible
over exposure, or with symptoms including chest pain,
difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness or other adverse
effects, which may be delayed.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water.
Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove
contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large
amounts of water. Obtain medical attention if skin reaction
occurs, which may be immediate or delayed.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention immediately

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: No special requirements needed. Water is recommended for
fires involving packaging.

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

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Since toxic, corrosive or flammable vapours might be evolved
from fires involving this material, self contained
breathing apparatus and full protective equipment are

Move containers from the fire area if possible without
increase personal risk.

If possible, contain and collect firefighting water for
later disposal.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow
individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material
unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Avoid dust

Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage
systems and poorly ventilated areas. If spill is outdoors,
cover with plastic sheet to minimise spreading or contact
with rain.

Collect and place it in a suitable, properly labelled
container for recovery or disposal. After all solid or
absorbent material has been collected; the area should be
vacuumed with HEPA filter-equipped apparatus. Following
removal of spillage, wash down spillage area with copious
amounts of water only if waste water can be directed to an
on-site waste water treatment system.

Water can be used for clean-up and decontamination
operations. No specific decontamination or detoxification
procedures have been identified for this material. Consider
use of water, detergent solutions or other soluble solvents,
for clean-up and decontamination operations.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.

Depending upon the scale of the operation, use of
appropriate exhaust ventilation is recommended to provide
routine control of fire and explosion hazards during
handling of this material.

Ignition Controls: Bond and earth (ground) all plant and

equipment to ensure that no isolated conductors are
present. Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient
electrostatic charge to produce discharges of many hundreds
of milli- Joules. Consider earthing (grounding) personnel
dealing with dusty operations. The maximum surface
temperature of enclosures potentially exposed to this
material should be the lower of the values obtained by
taking 2/3 of the minimum ignition temperature for a dust
cloud or 75 K less than the minimum ignition
temperature of the dust layer, with a maximum temperature of
325 Deg C.

Protective Systems: Assess operations based upon available
dust explosion information to determine the suitability of
preventive or protective systems as precautionary measures
against possible dust explosions. If prevention is not
possible, consider protection by use of containment, venting
or suppression of dust handling equipment. Where explosion
venting is considered the most appropriate method of
protection, vent areas should preferably be calculated based
on the Kst rather than the St value. If nitrogen purging is
considered as the protective system, it must operate with
an oxygen level below the limiting oxygen concentration. The
system should include an oxygen monitoring and shut down
facility in the event of excessive oxygen being detected.

At both ambient and low humidity, this material is of low
conductivity. Generation of electrostatic charge is
considered likely to occur even when handled in an earthed
(grounded) environment.

At both ambient and low humidity, this material has a very
long charge relaxation time. Accumulation of electrostatic
charge is considered very likely to occur even when handled
in an earthed environment. Under these conditions, it is
considered that this material might present a very high
riskn of producing an electrostatic discharge.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from
moisture and away from sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged
storage at elevated temperatures (> room temperature,
approximately 20 Deg C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: SB-392033 is recieved and stored in double antistatic
polyethylene liners. The double liners are stored inside
either 20 L steel drums or fibreboard kegs.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: This material is a non-combustible solid. Dust clouds are
potentially of low sensitivity to ignition from incendive
electrostatic discharges. Dust clouds are of very low
sensitivity to ignition from hot surfaces. No ignition or
exotherm of a powder layer observed up to 400 Deg C.
Ignition of a dust cloud produces a strong explosion. High
pressure between 8 and 10 bar is produced during a dust

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment is not aniticipated. 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 and recycle
larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.

The dust hazard will be minimised by good industrial

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Collect for recylcing or recovery if possible. Contaminated
containers or spillages of solutions mixed with inert
material (eg. sand or soil) are incinerated. Wherever
possible, disposal should be in an on-site licenced chemical

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
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon,
nitrogen and chlorine oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly
tothe sewage system or the aqueous environment. All waste
including aqueous waste are incinerated.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
