First-aid measures

General information

CAUTION! First aid personnel must be aware of own risk during rescue!


Move the exposed person to fresh air at once. Rinse nose and mouth with water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.


Immediately rinse mouth and provide fresh air. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Skin contact

Remove affected person from source of contamination. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash the skin immediately with soap and water.

Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Eye contact

Make sure to remove any contact lenses from the eyes before rinsing. Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids.

Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:

General information

The severity of the symptoms described will vary dependant of the concentration and the length of exposure.


NOTE! Effects may be delayed. Keep affected person under observation. Dust irritates the respiratory system, and may cause coughing

and difficulties in breathing. May cause nausea, headache, dizziness and intoxication. Frequent inhalation of dust over a long period of

time increases the risk of developing lung diseases.


Metallic taste. May cause stomach pain or vomiting. Diarrhoea. Fumes from the stomach contents may be inhaled resulting in the same

symptoms as inhalation.

Skin contact

Irritating and may cause redness and pain. Discoloration of the skin. The molten product can cause serious burns.

Eye contact

Irritating and may cause redness and pain.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

No recommendation given, but first aid may still be required in case of accidental exposure, inhalation or ingestion of this chemical. If in


Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

This product is not flammable. Use fire-extinguishing media appropriate for surrounding materials.

Unsuitable extinguishing media

DO NOT use water if avoidable.

Hazardous combustion products

Fire or high temperatures create: Toxic gases/vapours/fumes of: Metal oxides.

Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards

High concentrations of dust may form explosive mixture with air.

Specific hazards

When heated and in case of fire, toxic vapours/gases may be formed.

Special Fire Fighting Procedures

Avoid breathing fire vapours. Fight advanced or massive fires from safe distance or protected location.

Protective equipment for fire-fighters

Self contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear protective clothing.

Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Avoid spreading dust or contaminated materials.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Avoid generation and spreading of dust. Should be prevented from entering drains. Remove spillage with vacuum cleaner. If not possible,

collect spillage with shovel, broom or the like. Ensure that waste and contaminated materials are collected and removed from the work

area as soon as possible in a suitably labelled container.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Avoid spilling, skin and eye contact. Avoid handling which leads to dust formation.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Store in a cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Workplace Exposure Limit: TWA-8hours= 0.1 mg/m³ as Te

Process conditions

Use engineering controls to reduce air contamination to permissible exposure level.

Engineering measures

Provide adequate ventilation. Observe occupational exposure limits and minimize the risk of inhalation of dust.

Respiratory equipment

If ventilation is insufficient, suitable respiratory protection must be provided.

Hand protection

Use suitable protective gloves if risk of skin contact. The most suitable glove must be chosen in consultation with the gloves supplier, who

can inform about the breakthrough time of the glove material.
