After ingestion
If swallowed do not induce vomiting,seek medical advice and show safety datasheet or label

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

No symptoms known currently.

No special measures needed.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media
water spray jet

Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons
Full water jet
carbon dioxide
dry powder

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO)
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighting
Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear suitable personal protective equipment.
Avoid dust formation.
Keep away sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions
Do not allow entry to drains,water courses or soil

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Avoid dust formation and electrical charging (sparking) because dust explosion might occur.
Damp spilled material with water and pick up mechanically. Transfer warning labels from original containers to containers where the material is collected.
When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".

Reference to other sections
Additional information
Keep away sources of ignition, stop running engines, no smoking.
Moisten spilled material with water, cover with wet sand or wetted binder, then take up.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling
When used and handled appropriately no special measures are needed
Avoid dust formation.

Hygiene measures
Wash hands before breaks and after work.
Use barrier skin cream.
Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g earthing during loading and off-loading operations.
Keep away from sources of ignition
Dust can form an explosive mixture with air.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep in original packaging, tightly closed

Advice on storage compatibility
When used and handled as intended, none.
Do not store or transport together with foodstuffs

Further information on storage conditions
Keep container dry

Storage stability
If correctly stored: storage life > 12 months

Specific end use(s)
No further recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

General protective measures
Observe the usual precautions for handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection
Wear dust mask when handling large quantities

Hand protection
Nitrile rubber gloves.
Minimum breakthrough time (glove): not determined
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
Observe the information of the glove manufacturers on permeability and breakthrough times and other workplace requirements
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.
Because this glove is used only for mechanical protection, the minimum breakthrough time and thickness are not relevant to safety.

Eye protection
safety glasses

Body protection
working clothes

Stability and reactivity

See section "Possibility of hazardous reactions"

Chemical stability

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Risk of dust explosions.

Conditions to avoid

Incompatible materials
not known

Hazardous decomposition products
When handled and stored appropriately, no dangerous decomposition products are known

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Product should be be taken to a suitable and authorized waste disposal site in accordance with relevant regulations and if necessary after consultation with the waste disposal operator and/or the competent Authorities

Uncleaned packaging
Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste
