First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, move
exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is difficult or
ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as
appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept warm and at
rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible
over exposure, or with symptoms including chest pain,
difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness or other adverse
effects, which may be delayed.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water.
Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove
contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large
amounts of water. Obtain medical attention if skin reaction
occurs, which may be immediate or delayed.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Never attempt to induce vomiting. Do not attempt to give any
solid or liquid by mouth if the exposed subject is
unconscious or semi-conscious. Wash out the mouth with
water. If the exposed subject is fully conscious, give
plenty of water to drink. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: No special requirement needed. Water is recommended for
fires involving packaging.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in
a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow
individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material
unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Avoid dust

Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage
systems and poorly ventilated areas. If spill is outdoors,
cover with plastic sheet to minimise spreading or contact
with rain.

Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert
material (eg. sand or soil). Collect and place it in a
suitable, properly labelled container for recovery or
disposal. After all solid or absorbent material has been
collected; the area should be vacuumed with HEPA filter-
equipped apparatus. Following removal of spillage, wash down
spillage area with copious amounts of water only if waste
water can be directed to an on-site waste water treatment

Water can be used for clean-up and decontamination
operations. No specific decontamination or detoxification
procedures have been identified for this material. Consider
use of water, detergent solutions or other soluble solvents,
for clean-up and decontamination operations.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

*Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

*Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

*Eye protection to Standard EN166.

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling
exposure, be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the
appropriate international or national standards, such as a
dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.

Depending upon the scale of the operation, use of
appropriate exhaust ventilation is recommended to provide
routine control of fire and explosion hazards during
handling of this material.

Ignition Controls: Bond and earth (ground) all plant and
equipment to ensure that no isolated conductors are present.
Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient electrostatic
charge to produce discharges of many hundreds of milli-
Joules. Consider earthing (grounding) personnel dealing with
dusty operations. The maximum surface temperature of
enclosures potentially exposed to this material should be
the lower of the values obtained by taking 2/3 of the
minimum ignition temperature for a dust cloud or 75 K less
than the minimum ignition temperature of the dust layer,
with a maximum temperature of 325 Deg C.

Protective Systems: Assess operations based upon available
dust explosion information to determine the suitability of
preventive or protective systems as precautionary measures
against possible dust explosions. If prevention is not
possible, consider protection by use of containment, venting
or suppression of dust handling equipment. Where explosion
venting is considered the most appropriate method of
protection, vent areas should preferably be calculated based
on the Kst rather than the St value. If nitrogen purging is
considered as the protective system, it must operate with
an oxygen level below the limiting oxygen concentration. The
system should include an oxygen monitoring and shut down
facility in the event of excessive oxygen being detected.

At both ambient and low humidity, this material is of low
conductivity. Generation of electrostatic charge is
considered likely to occur even when handled in an earthed
(grounded) environment.

At both ambient and low humidity, this material has a very
long charge relaxation time. Accumulation of electrostatic
charge is considered very likely to occur even when handled
in an earthed environment. Under these conditions, it is
considered that this material might present a very high risk
of producing an electrostatic discharge.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from
moisture and away from sources of ignition. Avoid prolonged
storage at elevated temperatures (> room temperature,
approximately 20 Deg C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: SB-392033 is received and stored in double antistatic
polyethylene liners. The double liners are stored inside
either 20 Litre steel drums or fibreboard kegs.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported

Chemical reaction with water: None which are hazardous.

Dust explosion: Under normal conditions of use this material does not
present a significant explosion hazard. However, like most
organic compounds it is combustible and may form a dust
explosion if widely dispersed in air.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is a
sensitiser and dangerous to the environment.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health properties.

The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate handling
and storage.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and
nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
