Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon
dioxide.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.
Hazardous combustion products: No hazardous combustion products are known
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Further information: Standard procedure for chemical fires.
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances
and the surrounding environment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective equipment.
Avoid dust formation.
Methods for cleaning up: Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust.
Sweep up and shovel. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. The substance is rigorously contained during manufacturing and use and appropriate risk management measures including PPE (i.g. during charging or sampling) are applied. Occupational exposure is reduced to a minimum and well controlled by measurements. A management system covering all general aspects of a chemical production is in place, especially cleaning and maintenance of plants and equipment. An authorisation scheme based on instructions covering the whole process ensures that only trained and authorised staff handles the substance.

Advice on safe handling: This substance should be handled under strictly controlled conditions as specified in REACH regulation article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements in ac-cordance with risk-based management system should be available at each manufacturing site. During the whole lifecy-cle all necessary measures should be undertaken to minimize emissions and any resulting exposure.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Normal measures for preventive fire protection.Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.

Hygiene measures: General industrial hygiene practice.
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.
Advice on common storage: No materials to be especially mentioned
Further information on storage stability: Stable under recommended storage conditions.
