First-aid measures

Eye contact :  rinse immediately with tap water for 10 minutes - open eyelids forcibly;  consult a physician if irritation persists

Skin contact:  remove immediately contaminated clothes, wash affected skin with water and soap - do not use any solvents

Inhalation - remove the casualty to fresh air and keep him/her calm

- in the event of symptoms get medical treatment

Note to physician - treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media - water spray jet, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

Specific hazards - formation of toxic and corrosive combustion gases (sulfur oxides) possible

- heating containers will cause pressure to rise (risk of bursting or explosion)

- Material can be ignited

- high probability of ignition of dust whirled up

Protection of fire-fighters - precipitate gases/vapours/mists with water spray

Accidental release measures

Environmental protection - do not allow to enter drains or waterways

- if the substance reaches waters or the sewer system, inform the competent authority

Methods for cleaning up - collect solids (avoid dust formation) and hand over to waste removal

Handling and storage

Handling

Technical measures - processing in closed systems, superposed by inert gas (e.g. nitrogen)

- avoid electric charging of dust clouds

- connect conductive pieces of equipment, products and packaging to earth

- handling under inert conditions

- low minimum ignition energy

- avoid dust formation; high dust explosion hazard

Suitable materials - aluminium, enamel, glass, plastic

Note - extremly violent thermal decomposition possible

Storage

Storage conditions - dry and ventilated place

- protected from humidity

- cold

Validity - 12 months

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection - in case of open handling of larger quantities or accidental release:

particle mask or respirator with independent air supply

Hand protection - protective gloves (eg made of neoprene, nitrile or butyl rubber)

Eye protection - safety glasses

Body protection - connect persons to earth by means of conductive shoes and conductive floor

Stability and reactivity

Stability - stable under the conditions mentioned in handling and storage

Conditions to avoid - temperatures above 70 °C

Hazardous decomposition

products

- sulphur oxides (SOx)

Disposal considerations

Waste from residues - observe local/national regulations regarding waste disposal

- incinerate in qualified installation with flue gas scrubbing
