First-aid measures

General advice:

Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:

If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, move 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 and then drink plenty of water.

Note to physician:

Treatment: Treat according to symptons (decontamination, vital functions), no know specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

dry powder, foam

Unsuitable estinguishing media for safety reasons:

carbon dioxide

Additional information:

Avoid whirling up the material/ product because of the danger of dust explosion.

Specific hazards:

harmful vapours

Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Special protective equipment:

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:

The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.

Environmental precautios:

Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groudwater.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:

For small amounts: Pick up with suitabe appliance and dispose of.

For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.

Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage


Breathing 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.

Dust explosion class 1 (Kst-value>0 up to 200 bar m s-1).


Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment:

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Typ 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. nitirle rubber (0.4mm), chloroprenen rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other.

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data information of glove manufacturers 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 in practice my be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing. Manfacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diviersity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame googles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommende.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid:

Avoid electro-static discharge

Thermal decomposition: 210°C (Isoperibolic (Lütolf oven))

Thermal decomposition: >350°C (dynamic (Lütolf oven))

Thermal decomposition: 260°C (VDI 2263, sheet 1, 1.4.1)

Substances to avoid:

strong oxidizing agents, strong bases, strong acids

Hazardous reactions:

Dust explosion hazard.

Hazardous decomposition products:

No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:

Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.

Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
