First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove person from exposure. If the victim is not breathing,
perform mouth to mouth resuscitation. Oxygen may be
administered if breathing is difficult. Show copy of safety
data sheet or label to medical staff. Seek immediate medical
Emergency measure - Eyes: Hold eyelids apart and irrigate affected eye(s) with copious
amounts of water, for at least 15 minutes. Seek immediate
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash affected area with
copious amounts of water and a mild soap for at least 15
minutes. If irritation persists seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the
container or the label. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.

Induction of vomiting should be considered for significant
ingestions if person is conscious and not experiencing
convulsions. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use appropriate medium for the underlying cause of the fire
and surrounding environment e.g water,foam or carbon

Product arising from burning: Hazardous decomposition products may consist of COx and NOx

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Fire fighters should wear full protective clothing including
self contained breathing apparatus, chemical and flame
resistant protective clothing, gloves and boots.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable PPE i.e splash goggles, full suit,
coverall,respirator (with high efficiency filters or
cartridges), boots and impermeable gloves. Minimise dust
formation by collecting spilled solids using a wet mop, damp
sponge or wet/dry HEPA vacuum. Place collected material into
a suitable labelled container for reclamation or disposal.
Finish cleaning by spreading water and detergent on the
contaminated surface, ventilate area and dispose of
according to local and regional authority requirements.

Handling and storage

Handling: Engineering controls in the form of local ventilation are
provided at the reactor. When they are not sufficient to
control dust exposures, approved respiratory protection to
EN 136 standard should be worn. For manufacturing areas skin
protection should be provided in the form of coveralls or
full air suits (conforming to standard EN368) along with
impermeable gloves (conforming to standard EN374). Gloves
should be changed regularly and removed after overt
contamination. Rubber, neoprene or other gloves may be
required if solvents, corrosives or other chemicals are
present. Chemical safety glasses should be worn if a full
face respirator is not being worn.

Storage: The substance is stored in a dark, dry area, away from heat
and sunlight. Containers must be correctly labelled and kept
tightly closed when not in use.

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

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known

Chemical reaction with water: No changes upon reaction with water

Dust explosion: The material exhibits explosive characteristics if ignited
as a dust cloud. It is 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.

Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Trace quantities are destroyed by biological oxidation in
the on-site and local authority minicipal wastewater
treatment plants. Larger quantities are destroyed by closed
cycle incineration. No practical means of recovery or
recycling are known.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Trace quantities are destroyed by biological oxidation in
waste water treatment plants.

Method: A641

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is recommended for larger quantities. A
closed-cycle incinerator with scrubbers should be employed.
National and local regulations must be observed.

Method: A663

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Biological oxidation occurs at waste water treatment plants.

Trace quantities in aqueous washes can be treated in
secondary biological WWTP before discharge to municipal
treatment works. The substance should not normally be
discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous
