First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Skin

Wash with soap and water for 20 minutes or until chemical is removed. Remove contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Eyes

Rinse cautiously with water for 30 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Get medical attention if eye irritation develops or persists. If eye irritation persists, get medical attention.

Inhaled

Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed. If breathing is labored, administer oxygen. If breathing has stopped, apply artificial respiration. If experiencing respiratory symptoms call a poison center or doctor.

Swallowed

Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to a person who is losing consciousness, unconscious or convulsing. Call a poison center or doctor if exposed or you feel unwell.

Advice for first-aid providers

When providing first aid always protect yourself against exposure to chemicals or blood born diseases by wearing gloves, masks and eye protection. If providing CPR use mouthpieces, resuscitation bags, pocket masks or other ventilation devices. After providing first aid wash your exposed skin with soap and water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

See section  “Toxicological Information”.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Note to physician: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire Fighting Measures

Extinguishing Media

CO2, dry chemical, foam, water spray, water fog. Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material

Special hazards arising from substance or mixture

Solid does not readily release flammable vapors. Container may rupture in a fire situation. Dust generated from the product is combustible if present at a sufficient concentration. Dust can be ignited by static discharge. DO NOT USE a solid stream of water. Take care to minimze airborne dust. See section 10 for additional information.

Advice for firefighters

Wear full protective firegear including self-containing breathing apparatus operated in the positive pressure mode with full facepiece, coat, pants, gloves and boots. Do not direct a solid stream of water on spilled material. Use flooding amounts of water as a fog. Use water to cool containers exposed to fire. Do not release chemically contaminated water into drains, soil or surface water.

Accidental release measures

Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Only trained personnel should be permitted in area. Personal protective equipment must be worn. Ventilate area if spilled in a confined space or other poorly ventilated area. Material on floor may be slippery.

Environmental precautions

Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Pick up free solid for recycle and/or disposal. Avoid raising a dust. Pump any free liquid into an appropriate closed container. Wash spill area with soap and water.

Reference to other sections

See sections “Exposure Controls/Personal Protection” and “Toxicological Information” for additional information.

Handling and storage

Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling

Keep material away from heat, sparks, pilot lights, static electricity and open flame. Use with adequate ventilation. Keep containers closed when not in use. Avoid creating dust. Maintain good housekeeping practices. Avoid eye contact. Avoid repeated or prolonged skin contact. When handling, do not eat, drink, or smoke Avoid drinking, tasting, swallowing or ingesting this product. Avoid breathing dust, fume, gas, mist, vapors or spray. Use grounding and bonding connection when transferring material to prevent static discharge, fire and explosion. Use spark-resistant tools. Wash thoroughly after handling. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Do not reuse empty containers. Empty containers retain material residue. Do not cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind or expose containers to heat, flame, spark or other sources of ignition. Dispose of packaging or containers in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations.

Pumping Temperature

Not applicable.

Maximum Handling Temperature

Not determined.

Maximum Loading Temperature

Not determined.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilites

Store separately from oxidizers. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Store separately from incompatible materials. Keep container tightly closed. Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers. See section 10 for incompatible materials.

Maximum Storage Temperature

Not determined.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Control parameters

None known.

Other Exposure Limits

None known.

Exposure controls

If use generates a dust, local exhaust ventilation is recommended. Additional ventilation or exhaust may be required to maintain air concentrations below recommended exposure limits.

Eye/face protection

Safety glasses. If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield.

Skin protection

Gloves are recommended when handling this material. Unless material is used in a process where the use of gloves would pose sufficient risk of injury to the user/operator. Consult with an industrial hygienist to determine the appropriate clothing protection for your specific use of this material. Consult clothing/glove manufacturer to determine appropriate type of glove for given situation. Gloves should always be inspected before each use and discarded if they show tears, pinholes, or signs of wear. Use good industrial hygiene practices to avoid skin contact. If contact with the material may occur wear chemically protective gloves. Long sleeve shirt is recommended. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material and cause a skin reaction.

Respiratory Protection

Under normal use conditions, respirator is not usually required. Use disposable dust/mist mask if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded.

Hygiene Measures

Wash thoroughly after handling this product. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.

Environmental exposure controls

See section “Accidental Release Measures” for details.
