First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with plenty of water. If irritation
develops, seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, dry powder or carbon dioxide may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur together with metal oxide smoke.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective
clothing should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1)

Sweep up spill avoiding dust generation and transfer to
labelled containers. Dispose of by incineration in
accordance with local regulations . Wash spill site with
water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. Safety glasses/eye protection
and rubber gloves should be worn. Use local exhaust
ventilation or wear an approved dust respirator.

Storage: Store in tightly closed containers away from sources of
ignition and oxidising materials.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Sealed polyethylene-lined fibre containers.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous properties.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method at a suitable facility. Waste gas
treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen, sulfur and metal
oxides should be fitted. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Computer modelling programme predicts 76% removal in water
purification plants, predominantly by adsorption to biomass.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will only enter the public domain incorporated
into photographic articles. Recovery from articles is not
feasible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous properties.
