First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin Contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Immediately take off all contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

Eye Contact: In case of eye contact, remove contact lens and rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention.

Ingestion: Immediately give large quantities of water to drink. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is unconscious or is having convulsions. Call a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: Causes eye burns. Harmful if inhaled. Harmful if swallowed.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical or water.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Dust may form explosive mixture with air. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.

Special protective equipment for firefighting: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

For non emergency personnel: Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.

For emergency responders: not available

Environmental precautions: Avoid discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.

Methods and material for containment and clean up: Do not sweep. Collect spill using a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. Be aware of potential for dust explosion when using electrical equipment. If vacuum is not available, lightly mist/wet material and remove by mopping or wet wiping.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Minimise dust generation and accumulation. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Not available.

Exposure controls / personal protection

TWA (12hrs): 800ug/m3

Appropriate engineering controls: Open handling is not recommended. Use appropriate control measures such as fume hood, ventilated enclosure, local exhaust ventilation, or down-draft booth.

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN 166

Hand protection: Protective gloves complying with EN 374.

Other skin protection: Chemical-resistant gloves and impermeable body covering to minimize skin contact.

Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air purifying or air fed respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicated that is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe working limits of the respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU). If the applicable occupational exposure level (OEL) is anticipated to be exceeded, wear an approved respirator with sufficient protection factor to

control exposure below the OEL.

Hygiene measures: Engineering controls should be used as the primary means to control workplace exposures. Follow good workplace hygiene practices such as washing hands after handling this material.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Not water reactive

Chemical Stability: This material should not be handled above the following temperature: 240°C. This temperature is based on a laboratory test (ARC) and assumes near atmospheric pressures and quantities of less than 500 kg (1100 lb) or 208 L (55 gal). For additional information contact the Chemical Hazards Laboratory.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerisation does not occur.

Conditions to avoid: None known

Incompatible materials: Strong oxidising substances.

Hazardous Decomposition products: Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.
