First-aid measures

If risk of exposure to dust or fumes exists:

Inhalation : In case of exposure to fumes or dust remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Obtain medical attention.

Ingestion : Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything
by mouth to an unconscious person. If large quantities of this material are swallowed, call a physician immediately

Skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Get medical attention immediately

Eye contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with a copious amount of water for at least 15 Minutes. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Material is non-flammable. Use fire fighting measures appropriate to surrounding materials.
Extinguishing media: Do not use water or halogenated extinguishing media.
Special exposure : This material is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Fire fighting water contaminated with this material should be collected, in order that it can not reach ground water, water course or Sewage system

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Accidental release measures

In cases of accident, procedural and/or control technologies must be used to minimise emissions and the resulting exposure during purification or cleaning and maintenance procedures
Personal precautions: Immediately contact emergency personnel. Keep unnecessary personnel away. Use suitable protective equipment
Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.
Methods for cleaning up: If emergency personnel are unavailable vacuum or carefully scoop up spilled materials and place in an appropriate container. For large spills like spilled material or otherwise contain material to ensure runoff does not reach a waterway Avoid creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal.

Handling and storage

Handling :
Only properly trained and authorised personnel must handle the substance
Substance-handling procedures must be well documented and strictly supervised by the site operator
Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep container closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Avoid contact of spilled material and runoff with soil and surface waterways. Avoid generation and spreading of dust. Avoid inhalation of dust and small particles and contact with skin and eyes. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Observe good industrial hygiene practices.

Storage : Keep container tightly closed. Keep container in a well ventilated area.

Exposure controls / personal protection

The substance must be rigorously contained by technical means during its whole lifecycle including manufacture, purification, cleaning and maintenance of equipment, sampling, analysis, loading and unloading of equipment or vessels, waste disposal or purification and storage
Procedural and control technologies must be used that minimise emission and any resulting exposure
Only properly trained and authorised personnel must handle the substance
In the case of cleaning and maintenance works, special procedures such as purging and washing must be applied before the system is opened and entered

PLEASE PROVIDE ANY EVIDENCE SUPPORTING STRICT CONTROL!

Risk reduction measures aiming at protection of human health focus on use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep air borne levels for containing metals below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

Environmental risk reduction measures focus on removal of metal trace constituents from air emissions through fume/dust collection where relevant (mainly for hot processes) and on removal of metal trace constituents in direct cooling water and effluent through physico-chemical techniques.


Occupational exposure controls: Respiratory protection In case of risk of inhalation of dust, use suitable respiratory equipment with particle filter (type P2). Seek advice from local supervisor.

Hand protection: Wear suitable protective gloves to prevent. Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier.

Eye protection: Wear acid-resistant safety goggles where there is danger of eye contact.

Skin and body protection: Wear suitable protective clothing

Environmental exposure controls: Contain spills and prevent releases and observe national regulations on emissions.

Hygiene measures Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices. Wash hands after handling. Work area, equipment and floors regularly cleaned
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in area where this material is handled, Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants. Observe any medical surveillance requirements.

Competence and Training: Activity should only be executed by specialists or authorized personnel. Regular training and Instruction of workers. Procedures for process control to minimize release/exposure

Monitoring: Regular inspection/maintenance of furnaces and ducts to ensure air tightness and prevent fugitive releases. Establish monitoring system to detect leaks and failures in cleaning equipment. Establish monitoring system for exposure at the work place - personal air samplers or fixed measurements. Establish appropriate health surveillance program

Stability and reactivity

Stability : The product is stable under normal circumstances.

Substances to avoid: Strong acids, strong oxidising agents.

Harmful decomposing products: On heating during processing, harmful compounds of Pb, As, Ni may release.

Disposal considerations

Where waste is generated, procedural and/or control technologies must be used to minimise emissions and the resulting exposure during purification or cleaning and maintenance procedures
The generation of waste should be avoided or minimised wherever possible. Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.
Disposal should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste disposal legislation and any regional local authority requirements. This product is recyclable.
