First-aid measures

General advice: Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.
If inhaled: If idifficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical atention.
On skin contact: Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.
On contact with eyes: Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion: Immediately rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water, do not induce vomiting, seek medical attention.
Note to physician: Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no know specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: water spray, dry powder, foam.
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: carbon dioxide.
Specific hazards: Harmful vapours. Evolution of fumes/fog. The substance can be released in case of fire.
Special protective equipment: wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information: The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions: Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Handling: Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation. Protection against fire and explosion: Avoid dust formation. Take precautonary measures against static discharges.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure., acid- resp. lye-proof apron, e.g. of rubber (f.e. according to EN 14605), protection boots, f.e. of rubber (e.g. according to EN 20346), acid-proof chemical protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Corrosion to metals:
Corrosive effect on metals.

Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
No hazardous reactions when stored and handled according to instructions.

Conditions to avoid
Avoid open flames.

Substances to avoid:
strong bases, strong oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products known.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.

A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to dependence on the usage.
Observe national and local legal requirements.

Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
