First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

General information: Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

In case of irregular breathing or respiratory arrest provide artificial respiration.

After inhalation: In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.

After skin contact: Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.

After eye contact: Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. If symptoms persist, consult a doctor.

After swallowing: Call for a doctor immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects,

both acute and delayed No further relevant information available.

Eyes: Dust may irritate eyes mechanically.

Hazards and systemic effects: General information for cyano-compounds: Highest alert!

Hydrocyanic acid may be released!

Possible routes of intake: Intake by swallowing or inhalation of dust.

Chronic effects: Persistant exposition of inhalable dust above threshold limits may cause cough, shortness of breath or chronic pneumonia.

Medicinal indications which may be aggravated by exposition: Breathing in of dust or vapours may complicate existing respiratory

disease or other medical indications like emphysema or asthma.

Exposition may also aggravate existing skin disease or eye complaint.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

Intoxication is determined by formation of hydrocyanic acid.

Antidote: Hydroxycobalamine (vitamine B12, Cyanokit (R)).

Artificial respiration with 100% oxygen.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: In case of fire, the following can be released:

Carbon monoxide (CO)

Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Hydrogen chloride (HCl)

Advice for firefighters

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

Chemical resistant protective suit.

Under the protective suit a fire protective suit according to EN 469 should be applied.

Dispose of fire debris and contaminated fire fighting water in accordance with official regulations.

Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter the sewage system.
