First-aid measures

Ingestion: Seek medical attention.
Inhalation: Seek medical attention.
Skin: Wash thoroughly with water. For rashes seek medical advice. Show label or data sheet if possible.
Eyes: Irrigate eyeball thoroughly with water for at least 10 minutes. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.
Wounds: Cleanse thoroughly to remove any nickel particles.

Fire-fighting measures

This material is stable at normal temperatures. At high temperatures >100 degrees Centigrade an exothermic reaction can be initiated causing the temperature to rise to >500 degrees centigrade. Fires involving this material can be extinguished with normal wet methods. Use water spray to avoid dust dispersion.

Accidental release measures

Collect spills by wet sweeping or vacuuming with the vacuum exhaust passing throug a high efficiency particulate arresting (HEPA) filter if exhaust is discharged into the workplace.
Wear appropriate nationally approved respirators if collection and disposal of spills is likely to cause the concentration limits of airborne nickel to exceed the locally prescribed exposure limits.

Handling and storage

Keep in the container supplied and keep container closed when not is use.
Wear suitable protective clothing including gloves.
Store away from sources of heat.
As packed this material may constitute a manual handling risk.

Exposure controls / personal protection

There is no occupational exposure limit for Reaction Mass Residue, the occupational exposure limits for the main constituents are as follows, as metal in inhalable size fraction:
TLV (mg/m3) = based on Threshold Limit Values of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (2008); Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
WEL (mg/m3) = based on Maximum Exposure Limit of the Health and Safety Executive in the U.K. in EH40/00; Exposure Limits for user operations will depend on the relevant governmental regulations.
Nickel metal TLV=1.5mg/m3. WEL=0.5mg/m3.
Nickel oxide TLV=0.2mg/m3. WEL=0.5mg/m3.
Nickel subsulphide TLV 0.1mg/m3. WEL=0.1mg/m3
Cobalt metal TLV = 0.02mg/m3. WEL=0.1mg/m3
Cobalt oxides TLV=0.02mg/m3. WEL=0.1mg/m3
Copper dusts TLV=1mg/m3. WEL=1mg/m3
Do not inhale dusts. Ventilation is normally required when handling or using this product to keep airborne nickel and cobalt levels below the nationally authorised limits. If ventilation alone cannot control exposure, use respirators nationally approved for the purpose.
Avoid repeated skin and eye contact. Wear goggles or face shield. Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves. Wash skin thoroughly after handling and before eating, drinking or smoking. lauder clothing and gloves as needed.

Stability and reactivity

This material is stable at normal temperatures. At temperatures > 100 degrees centigrade in air an exothermic reaction can be initiated causing the temperature to rise to >500 degrees centigrade.

Disposal considerations

Nickel and cobalt containing material is normally collected to recover metal values. Should disposal be deemed necessary follow local regulations.
