Fire-fighting measures

General: Non-combustible

Extinguishing media: As appropriate for the surrounding fire situation

Accidental release measures

Personal Protection: During removal of spillages, use personal protection (including gloves and a suitable dust mask).

General: Protect against dust generation. Collect dust and loose material using a high efficiency vacuum cleaner. If vacuum cleaner is unavailable: moisten spillages with water. Clear up spillages. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal. To avoid blockages do not allow product to enter drains / sewage.

Handling and storage

Handling: Dust generation should be minimized. Good housekeeping and hygiene practices should be followed during handling.

Storage: Packaging should be kept closed and intact to reduce the possibility of releasing dust. Re-use of packaging is not recommended in case residual fibrous dust and product debris are present.
