First-aid measures

Eye contact: immediately flush eye with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open.
Skin contact: remove contaminated clothing, taking care not to spread the chemical. Flush the contact area with water and soap for at least 15 minutes.
Inhalation: remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Ingestion: rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Never give anything by mouth if victim is rapidly losing consciousness, or is unconscious or convulsing. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
- SUITABLE: water spray, chemical powder, carbon dioxide or foams. Fight larger fires with water jet or alcohol-resistant foam.
- UNSUITABLE: water with a full water jet.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
The thermal decomposition and ignition of the product can produce toxic fumes COx, NOx and SO2.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS
For single units (packages): no special requirements needed. For larger amounts (multiple packages/pallets) of product: Since toxic, corrosive or flammable vapours might be evolved from fires involving the product and associated packaging, self contained breathing apparatus a full protective equipment are recommended for fire fighters. (Full facial mask with “Universal” filter). If possible, contain and collect fire fighting water for later disposal.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Prevention of skin and eye contact and personal clothing: wear protective clothing, protective glasses, rubber boots and heavy-duty rubber gloves
Provision for sufficient ventilation/respiratory protection: wear an independent respirator. Evacuate the area and aerate the zone contaminated by the spilt product after cleaning it away completely.
Control of dust: avoid forming clouds of dust/powder.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Do not allow the product to enter water or the soil. Prevent it from entering the drains or sewers. Use suitable containers for preventing environmental pollution. Alert neighbourhood: Not necessary

METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP
Use of absorbent material: vermiculite, dry sand, earth.
Cleaning methods: immediately contact emergency personnel. Evacuate and ventilate area. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Clean up spills or leak immediately. Wash the contaminated area with water or diluted mineral acids then absorb with a inert material (vermiculite, dry sand, earth, etc) and place in a closed chemical waste container for disposal.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING
Containment, local and general ventilation, measures to prevent aerosol and dust generation and fire: the premises set up for the handling of the product must be fitted out with localised and controlled aeration systems (laminar flow hoods, etc.) capable of confining the dispersion of the active ingredient in the form of air-dispersed powder. Use hoods with interchangeable filters

Advice on general occupational hygiene: use suitable personal protection devices including certified respirators, protective safety glasses and compatible gloves resistant against chemical agents. Wash yourself with care after each handling operation. Never eat, drink or smoke during handling. Safety shower and washing stations for rinsing eyes must be provided.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES
Specific storage requirements to control of the environmental effects: store in a dry, well-ventilated storage area at room temperature. Keep container tightly closed when not in use or empty.
Type of materials used in packing/containers of substance: pack the product in double polythene bags, individually sealed and store in cardboard bins fitted with an aluminium safety locking ring.

Exposure controls / personal protection

INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION MEASURES SUCH AS PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
- EYE/ FACE PROTECTION
Wear protective glasses (EN 166) during the execution of any industrial type of operations. If necessary, wear a protective face shield.
- SKIN PROTECTION
Use work overalls and/or coat, or dustproof overalls in Tyvek with hood for industrial type operations.
- HAND PROTECTION
- Type of material and thickness: wear nitrile or rubber gloves (neoprene). Minimum thickness of gloves: 0.11 mm.
- Typical or minimum breakthrough times of the glove material: permeability is not anticipated with dry solid substances and therefore the duration of the protective gloves has not been calculated. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of the EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.
- RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
Use and selection of respiratory protection is based upon engineering controls in use and potential for aerosol generation. When engineering controls are not sufficient control exposure, wear an approved respirator with NIOSH Class 100 or high efficiency particulate (HEPA) filters or cartridges (EN 140/EN 136) when exposures are up to 10 times the exposure control guideline. Wear a loose-fitting (Tyvek or helmet type) HEPA powered-air purifying respirator (PAPR) (EN 12941) when exposures are 10-25 times the exposure control guideline. Wear a full facepiece negative pressure respirator with Class 100 or HEPA filters (EN 136) when exposures are 25-50 times the exposure control guideline. Wear a tight fitting, full facepiece HEPA PAPR (EN 12942) when exposures are 50-100 times the exposure control guideline. Wear a hood-shroud HEPA PAPR (EN 12941) or full facepiece supplied air respirator (EN 139) operated in a pressure demand or other positive pressure mode when exposures are 100-1000 times the exposure control guideline.

ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS
Avoid dispersion in the environment.

Stability and reactivity

CHEMICAL STABILITY: stable in storage conditions.
POSSIBILITY OF HAZARDOUS REACTIONS: no hazardous polymerisations occur.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: protect from heat and direct light
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: oxidising and acid material as well as heavy metal compounds
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: toxic fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides.

Disposal considerations

WASTE TREATMENT METHODS
INCINERATION: dissolve or mix the product with a combustible solvent then incinerate in an incinerator for chemical products equipped with a postcombustion
and destruction system.
DISPOSAL METHODS SUITABLE FOR THE SUBSTANCE: this material and its containers must be disposed of as hazardous waste products.
SUITABLE DISPOSAL METHODS FOR COMBINED PACKAGING MATERIALS: combined packaging materials must be disposed of as hazardous waste products.
Work in compliance with the national and local laws in force.
