Description of first aid measures

• General information: Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

• After inhalation: Supply fresh air; consult doctor in case of complaints.

• After skin contact: Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.

• After eye contact: Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.

• After swallowing: Seek immediate medical advice.

Information for doctor:

• Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

o Eyes: Dust may irritate eyes mechanically.

o Hazards and systemic effects: No specific hazards known.

o Possible routes of intake: Intake by swallowing or inhalation of dust.

o Chronic effects: No chronic effects known.

• Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: Symptomatic treatment. No specific antidot.

Fire-fighting measures

• Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.

• Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: In case of fire, the following can be released: Carbon monoxide (CO); Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

• Advice for firefighters

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away. Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.

Environmental precautions: No special measures required.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Pick up mechanically. If formation of dust cannot be avoided use respiratory filter device.

Reference to other sections: No dangerous substances are released. Discharge into waste water channels and biological treatment plants only after clearence with the operating company and in accordance with local Authority approval.

Handling and storage


Precautions for safe handling: No special measures required. Any unavoidable deposit of dust must be regularly removed. Keep containers tightly sealed. Prevent formation of dust. Fill only in dedicated and assigned containers.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities


Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles: Store in a cool location. Store in dry location.

Corrosion of metals: No corroding action on metals (expert statement).

Information about storage in one common storage facility: Do not store together with alkalis (caustic solutions). Store away from oxidizing agents.

Further information about storage conditions: None.

Maximum storage temperature: No data available.

Recommended storage temperature: Currently no data available. It is therefore recommended not to exceed room temperature (max25 °C) during storage over a longer period of time.

Acceptable storage time: No data available.

Specific end use(s): See chapter 1 of SDS: Application of this substance/preparation.

Exposure controls:

Personal protective equipment

General protective and hygienic measures: The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection: Use respiratory protective device in case of formation of dust.

Protection of hands: Protective gloves. Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation

For the permanent contact gloves made of the following materials are suitable: The following materials are known from experience to be suitable for protection against undissolved solids: rubber. Check for tightness before use. Replace damaged gloves.

Eye protection: Safety glasses

Body protection: Use dust-proof protective suit.

Protection against thermal hazards: No specific measures required.

Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment: Avoid spillage of product into the environment. If possible use this material only in closed systems and devicesIn case of open plant systems (sampling devices, filling and discharging, cleansing works etc.) use local exhaust and collecting trays. Follow emission limit values. Measures in case of unwanted emissions should be established.

Risk management measures: General protective and hygienic measures have to be observed. Handling and use of this material/formulation only under controlled conditions in closed systems. Employees who use this material/formulation must be trained and demonstrably instructed about possible risks for man and environment. Measures for prevention of hazards in case of unwanted leakage (LOPC) shall be implemented.
