After swallowing: Rinse mouth with water.
Never give an unconscious person anything through the mouth.
Consult physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

In case of inhalation: Inhalation of dust may cause irritation of the respiratory system.
After eye contact: Dust contact with the eyes can lead to mechanical irritation.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treat symptomatically.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

In case of leakage, eliminate all ignition sources. Avoid generation of dust. Avoid contact
with skin and eyes. Do not breathe dust. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate
protective equipment.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow to penetrate into soil, waterbodies or drains.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Take up mechanically, placing in appropriate containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advices on safe handling: When not in use, keep containers tightly closed.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear appropriate protective equipment.
Avoid generation of dust. Do not breathe dust.
Provide for good room ventilation, suctioning/venting.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storerooms and containers:
Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Keep away from heat sources, sparks and open flames.
Store containers in upright position. Do not drop, drag or bang the container.
Handle empty containers with care. Incineration may cause explosion.
