First-aid measures

General Information
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. In the case of accident or if you feel unwell,
seek medical advice immediately (show the label where possible). In case of shortness of breath,
give oxygen. Keep victim warm. Keep victim under observation. Ensure that medical personnel are
aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves.

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation
Move to fresh air. For breathing difficulties, oxygen may be necessary. Induce artificial respiration
with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical
device. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance. Get medical attention if
symptoms occur.

Skin contact
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash off with warm water and soap. For
minor skin contact, avoid spreading material on unaffected skin. Get medical attention if irritation
develops and persists.

Eye contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if
present and easy to do. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Continue rinsing.

Ingestion
IF SWALLOWED: Immediately call a POISON CENTRE or doctor/physician. Never give anything by
mouth to a victim who is unconscious or is having convulsions. If swallowed, rinse mouth with
water (only if the person is conscious). Do not induce vomiting without advice from poison control
center. If vomiting occurs, keep head low so that stomach content doesn't get into the lungs.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Exposure to powder or dusts may be irritating to eyes, nose and throat.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
In case of shortness of breath, give oxygen. Keep victim warm. Keep victim under observation.
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Symptoms may be delayed

Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards
High concentration of airborne dust may form explosive mixture with air. The Minimum Ignition
Energy for some organic solids as a dust may be as low as 3 mJ [millijoules]. The Minimum
Explosive Concentration for some organic solids as a dust may be as low as 0.025 oz/ft3 or ~20
g/m3.

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide (CO2).

Unsuitable extinguishing media
Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with
face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces, SCBA. Structural firefighters protective
clothing will only provide limited protection.

Special fire fighting procedures
Cool containers exposed to heat with water spray and remove container, if no risk is involved.
Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with
face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces, SCBA. High concentrations of dust may
form explosive mixture with air. Vapours are heavier than air and may travel along the ground to
some distant source of ignition and flash back.

Specific methods
In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Cool containers exposed to flames with
water until well after the fire is out.

Accidental release measures

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
DO NOT handle, store or open near an open flame, sources of heat or sources of ignition. Protect
material from direct sunlight. Use good personal hygiene practices Guard against dust accumulation
of this material. Avoid breathing dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Wear personal protective
equipment. Do not use in areas without adequate ventilation. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash
thoroughly after handling. "Empty" containers retain product residue (liquid or vapour) and can be
dangerous. Do not re-use empty containers.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Guard against dust accumulation of this material. Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame.
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store in a closed container
away from incompatible materials. Prevent electrostatic charge build-up by using common bonding
and grounding techniques. Use care in handling/storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should
be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other
engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure
limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level. High concentration
of airborne dust may form explosive mixture with air. Ensure that good housekeeping practices are
followed as well as applicable guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association [NFPA]
654, "Prevention of Fire and Dust Explosions from the Manufacturing., Processing, and Handling of
Combustible Particulate Solids". Ventilation should be sufficient to effectively remove, and prevent
buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or fumes that may be generated during handling or thermal
processing. In order to ensure appropriate electrical safety practices are followed, consult
applicable standards. These may include guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association
[NFPA] 70, "The National Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended Practice for the
Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical
Installations in Chemical Process Areas ". NOTE: since this material's vapors, dust or fumes can
form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that any potential areas where explosions may occur are
designed to minimize potential damage. For recommendations to prevent such explosions and
associated damage, consult applicable guidelines such as NFPA 69, "Standard on Explosion
Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting Deflagrations".

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General information
Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid contact with skin.

Eye/face protection
Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles). If splashes are likely to occur, wear: Face-shield.
Eye wash fountain is recommended.

Skin protection
- Hand protection
Wear protective gloves.

- Other
Avoid contact with the skin. Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment. Use a positive-pressure
air-supplied respirator if there is any potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not
known, or any other circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate
protection. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Dust safety masks are recommended
when the dust concentration is more than 10 mg/m3. If engineering controls do not maintain
airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable
level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must
be worn.

Thermal hazards
Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.

Hygiene measures
Do not breathe dust. Wash hands after handling and before eating. Handle in accordance with good
industrial hygiene and safety practices.

Environmental exposure controls
Contain spills and prevent releases and observe national regulations on emissions. Handle in
accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.
