Information for doctor For the evaluation of acute and/or chronic toxicological properties currently no sufficient data are available. Potential health hazards caused by this substance/mixture cannot be definitely excluded.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Eyes: Dust may irritate eyes mechanically.
Hazards and systemic effects: General information for boron-compounds:
Symptoms after intake: Nausea,vomiting, effects on central nervous system.
Possible routes of intake: Intake by swallowing or inhalation of dust.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, extinguishing 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:
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Carbon monoxide (CO)
Sulphur dioxide (SO2)
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.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Wear protective clothing.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Do not breathe dust.
Access only for trained personnel with personal protective equipment.
Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.
Avoid spillage of product into the environment.
Avoid formation of dust.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow product to reach sewage system or any water course.
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course or sewage system.
Keep contaminated washing water and dispose of appropriately.
Methods and material for containment and
cleaning up: Pick up mechanically.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Empty containers must not be used for other products.
Contaminated protective equipment should be cleaned before taking it off.
Any deposit of dust which cannot be avoided must be regularly removed.
Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace.
Fill only in dedicated and assigned containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Additional information about design of
technical systems: Waste gases should be led into the atmosphere only via appropriate separators, scrubbers or incinerators.
Personal protective equipment:
General protective and hygienic measures: Contaminated protective suit shall be cleaned before taking it off.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Store protective clothing separately.
Breathing equipment: Filter P2.
Protection of hands: Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation:
The following materials are known from experience to be suitable for protection against undissolved solids: rubber.
Eye protection: Safety glasses
Body protection: Necessary protective suit has to be selected individually based on risk assessment.
Limitation and supervision of exposure into the environment: Avoid spillage of product into the environment.
If possible use this material only in closed systems and devices. In case of open plant systems (sampling devices, filling and discharging, cleansing works etc.) use local exhaust and collecting trays. Follow emission limit values. Measures in case of unwanted emissions should be established.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity, Chemical stability
Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided: No decomposition if used according to specifications.
Possibility of hazardous reactions The possibility of formation of explosive dust/air mixtures under certain conditions should be principally considered during handling and processing.
Hazardous decomposition products:
Nitrogen oxides
Sulfur dioxide
Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods, Recommendation
Must not be disposed of together with household garbage.
Do not allow product to reach sewage system.
Must be specially treated adhering to official regulations.
Recovery or recycling if possible.
Uncleaned packagings:
Recommendation: Empty contaminated packagings thoroughly. They can be recycled after thorough and proper cleaning.
Contaminated containers or containers with residual amounts must be
treated as hazardous wastes.
