First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: dry powder, foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: carbon dioxide
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of
fire.
Advice for fire-fighters:
Special protective equipment: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of
in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid dust formation. Do not breathe dust. Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions:
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Avoid raising dust. Avoid inhalation of dusts. Provide exhaust ventilation if dust is formed. Breathing must be protected when large quantities are
decanted without local exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
No special precautions necessary.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed.

Additional transport information

Special provisions / remarks / other:
Not classified as a dangerous good under transport regulations

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
fine dust of the bismuth vanadate pigments
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Particle filter with medium
efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374): e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar
substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove
in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing. Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed
because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Due to the colouring properties of the product closed work clothes should be used, to avoid stains during manipulation. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.
