First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Not known to be a direct inhalation hazard, but should be
handled as if it is hazardous. If dust is inhaled, move the
subject to area of fresh air and give artificial respiration
if breathing has stopped. If there are signs of discomfort,
seek medical advice. Show copy of safety data sheet or
label to medical staff.


(Note: if in contact with dust, ensure that eyes and skin
are suitably cleaned as appropriate)
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with large volumes of water for 10 - 15
minutes. Seek medical attention. Show copy of safety data
sheet or label to the medical staff.


Remove contact lenses if worn.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water and mild soap or detergent. If signs of
discomfort, seek medical attention. Remove contaminated
clothing and wash thoroughly before re-use.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If subject is conscious, rinse mouth thoroughly and drink
plenty of water. If signs of discomfort, seek medical
advice. Show copy of safety data sheet or label to medical
staff.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry foam, powder, water spray, carbon dioxide and other
extinguishing agents. No adverse reaction with normal
extinguishing agents is known.

Product arising from burning: Complete combustion will lead to the formation of oxides of
carbon and nitrogen. Reduced forms of these oxides (eg.
carbon monoxide) may result from combustion in enclosed
spaces. Other possible combustion products following
incomplete oxidation may include nitrous acids and volatile
carbon/nitrogen products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective equipment should be worn, including self
contained breathing apparatus, suitable gloves, goggles and
face protection.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Collect material while minimising the generation of dust
(through use of a damp mop or other cleaning equipment) and
place in a suitably labelled container. Dispose of in
accordance with local regulations. Residues and minor
spills may be washed with water to process sewer, if
allowable under local and national regulations.


Protective clothing including respirator, suitable gloves
and eye protection should be worn.

Handling and storage

Handling: As the substance exists in a dry form, precautions should be
taken to reduce the possibility of dust formation. Suitable
ventilation should be applied to the working area.


When physical or engineering controls are not sufficient to
control dust exposure, approved respiratory equipment to
EN136 standard should be worn. For manufacturing areas, PPE
such as goggles, coveralls or gowns of impervious material,
neoprene or rubber gloves may be worn.

Storage: Store dry under ambient conditions upright in the original
sealed containers which are correctly labelled.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Packed in fibre drums, 80 kg maximum, UN approved.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Avoid contact with strong oxidising and reducing agents.

Chemical reaction with water: There is not considered to be any adverse reaction with
water.

Dust explosion: The substance was tested to be a combustible dust with a
class ST-2 explosion strength (ASTME 1226 method). As with
most organic materials, a suspended dust cloud of this
substance may ignite if subjected to a strong ignition
source or high voltage.

Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is consumed during use and there is no
opportunity for recovery or recycling once used.


Waste solvent from the production process is sent for
recovery.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not appropriate

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Trace quantites are destroyed though biological oxidation in
wastewater treatment plants.


Code A641

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This is the recommended method of destruction, especially
for large quantities. Closed system incinerators with
scrubbers should be used in compliance with local and
national regulations.


Code A663

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Trace quantites in aqueous washes can be treated in
secondary biological WWTP before discharge to municipal
treatment works, even though SQ32,035 is not considered to
be readily biodegradable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: Not recommended
