First-aid measures

If inhaled:If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.On skin contact:Wash thoroughly with soap and water.On contact with eyes:Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.On ingestion:Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayedSymptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (seesection 2) and/or in section 11., Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment neededTreatment

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing mediaSuitable extinguishing media:dry powder, foamUnsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:carbon dioxideAdditional information:Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.Special hazards arising from the substance or mixtureharmful vapoursEvolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case offire.Advice for fire-fightersSpecial protective equipment:Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.Further information:The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminatedextinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency proceduresAvoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.Environmental precautionsContain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surfacewaters/groundwater.Methods and material for containment and cleaning upFor small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.Avoid raising dust.Reference to other sectionsInformation regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can befound in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handlingBreathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.Protection against fire and explosion:Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilitiesFurther information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a coolplace.Specific end use(s)For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 the advice mentioned in this section 7 is to beobserved.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with occupational exposure limitsNo occupational exposure limits known.PNECfreshwater: 0.01 mg/lmarine water: 0.001 mg/lsoil: 9 mg/kgsediment (freshwater): 45.1 mg/kgsediment (marine water): 4.51 mg/kgSTP: 1 mg/lDNELworker:Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 0.3 mg/kgworker:Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 0.7 mg/m3Exposure controlsPersonal protective equipmentRespiratory protection:Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Particle filter withmedium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)Hand protection:Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and otherSupplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glovemanufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove inpractice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.Eye protection:Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)General safety and hygiene measuresHandle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed workclothing is recommended.
