First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Hold eyelids apart and flush with plenty of water for 15
minutes. If irritation occurs, seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash skin with plenty of soap and water. Launder
contaminated clothing before re-use. If irritation occurs
seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical foam and powder.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon oxides). However,
there is no experimental evidence to support the anticipated
combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full chemical and flame resistant protective clothing,
gloves, boots and self-contained breathing apparatus must be

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a wet/dry HEPA vacuum. Containers filled
with waste material must be labelled in the same way as the
original containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent and
ventilate the area.

Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Handling and storage

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

Engineering controls in the form of local exhaust
ventilation should be used to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipmemt should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
usedas a secondary control. e.g. a respirator conforming to

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

Storage: Store in a well-ventilated area with low humidity to prevent

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Ensure
containers are properly labelled.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Material is packaged in UN approved fibre drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: Material exhibits strong explosion characteristics if
ignited as a dust cloud. Material is highly susceptible to
accumulating static charges during processing and
uncontrolled static discharge may result in igniting a dust
cloud under certain conditions due to the low minimum
ignition energy. Provide suitable bonding and grounding for
containers and process equipment to control static charges.
Powder handling equipment such as dust collectors, dryers,
and mills may require additional protective measures (eg.
explosion venting).

Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Handling of the substance will be by trained operators and
will be kept to a minimum.

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 off-site by closed cycle incineration. Recovery
of larger spillages of uncontaminated material for
subsequent use is recommended. Recycling of the material is
not feasible as it is consumed in the process.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not
considered hazardous to health.

No chemical treatment is known to neutralise the substance.
The dust hazard will be controlled by good engineering
processes such as local exhaust ventilation and PPE.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by
incineration at an authorised off-site facility in
accordance with local regulations. Trace quantities are
destroyed by biological oxidation in waste water treatment
plants. (A641)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by using a closed-cycle
incinerator with scrubbing under controlled conditions at a
licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local
regulations. (A663)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Significant quantities of the substance should not normally
be discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous
environment. However, trace quantities in aqueous washes can
be treated in secondary biological WWTP before discharge to
municipal treatment works.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: No other recommended methods of disposal.
