First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Not considered to be a direct inhalation hazard, but if dust
is inhaled, move 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.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water and mild soap or detergent. If signs of
discomfort arise, seek medical attention. Remove
contaminated clothing and wash thoroughly before re-use.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If subject is conscious, rinse mouth thoroughly and then
drink plenty of water. If signs of discomfort arise, 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, nitrogen, hydrogen iodide and iodine gas.

Product determined by test: N

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

Accidental release measures

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


Personal protective equipment (PPE) including respirator,
suitable gloves and eye protection should be worn.

Handling and storage

Handling: As the substance exists in the 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,
coveralls, gowns or other impervious material together with
neoprene, rubber or other suitable gloves which are
impervious to the processing materials should be worn.
Chemical safey glasses to BS 2092 or equivalent should be
worn if a full respirator is not being worn.

Storage: Store dry under ambient conditions in sealed, upright fibre
drums and ensure containers are correctly labelled.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: UN approved fibre drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

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

Dust explosion: Substance has been tested as a combustible dust with a Class
ST-1 explosion strength (ASTME 1226). As with any organic
material, suspended dust cloud of the substance may ignite
if subject to a strong ignition source or static
electricity.

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.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No method of chemical neutralisation is known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Trace quantities can be destroyed by biological oxidation in
the waste water treatment plant.


Code A641

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Large quantities are destroyed by incineration. A
closed-cycle incinerator with scrubbers should be employed.


Code A663

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Trace quantities of material in aqueous washes and in mother
liquors will be treated in a secondary biological waste
water plant before discharge to a municipal treatment plant.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the substance will not enter the public
domain.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Not applicable.
