After eye contact: Immediately remove contact lenses if present. Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.

After swallowing: Rinse out mouth and then drink plenty of water. If symptoms persist consult doctor.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents: Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions. Water haze. Fire-extinguishing powder. Dry sand.

For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: In case of fire, the following can be released: Carbon dioxide (CO2) and carbon monoxide (CO).

Advice for firefighters: Cool down the containers/equipment exposed to heat with a water spray. Do not attempt to fight the fire without suitable protective equipment: Acid-resistant clothing, Self-contained breathing apparatus. Isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire.

Protective equipment: Mouth respiratory protective device.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from ignition sources. Knock down vapor cloud with water spray or other appropriate solution.

Environmental precautions: No special measures required.

Methods for cleaning up/taking up: Collect mechanically. Treat the assimilated material according to the section on waste disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Use only in well ventilated areas. Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace. Use appropriate industrial vacuum cleaners or central vacuum systems for dust removal. Wear suitable respiratory protective device when decanting larger quantities without extractor facilities. Handle with care. Avoid jolting, friction and impact.

Information about fire - and explosion protection: Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke. Protect against electrostatic charges. Dust can combine with air to form an explosive mixture. Use explosion-proof apparatus / fittings and spark-proof tools.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles: No special requirements.

Information about storage in one common storage facility: Not required.

Further information about storage conditions: Store in dry conditions.
