-Ingestion: Rinse mouth. Get medical aid.
-Skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with plenty of soap and water.
-Eye contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, while lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid if irriation occurs.
-Information for a doctor or other professionals giving first aid

Fire-fighting measures

-Suitable extinguishing media: Water, foam, powder, dry sand
-Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: None.
-Special exposure hazards in a fire: Fire can generate toxic or caustic oxides.
-Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.
-Other instructions: Product in itself is not combustible

Accidental release measures

-Personal precautions: Prevent formation and spreading of dust. Wear personal protection. Instructions about protective equipment in Section 8.
-Environmental precautions: The heavy metals in product are dangerous for the environment. Do not release the product in soil, waterways or drains.
-Methods for cleaning up: Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting.
-Flush the area with plenty of water.
-Other instructions

Handling and storage

-Hand protection: Wear suitable protective gloves.
-Eye protection: Safety goggles.
-Skin protection: Use protective clothing.
-Environmental exposure controls: Do not release in soil, waterways or drains.

Stability and reactivity

-Conditions to avoid: Stable if the recommended conditions for use and storage are applied.
-Materials to avoid: Oxidizing agents and strong acids.
-Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition starts at 105-113 °C. Oxidation of elemental sulphur and fine-grained sulphides starts at 224 °C. On combustion and high temperatures, forms toxic and corrosive gases of sulfur oxides.

Disposal considerations

Hazardous waste.
EWC code 06 06 02* : wastes from the MFSU of sulphur chemicals, sulphur chemical processes and desulphurisation processes: wastes containing dangerous sulphides.
Disposal in accordance with local regulations.
