First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
- General information: Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Inhalation: Move affected person to fresh air at once. If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Skin contact: Remove affected person from source of contamination. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
- Eye contact: Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids wide apart. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
- General information: The severity of the symptoms described will vary dependent on the concentration and the length of exposure.
- Inhalation: Dust may irritate the respiratory system.
- Ingestion: May cause discomfort if swallowed.
- Skin contact: Powder may irritate skin.
- Eye contact: May cause temporary eye irritation.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
- Notes for the doctor: No specific recommendations. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
- Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide.
- 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
- Specific hazards: Dust may form explosive mixture with air.
- Hazardous combustion products: Thermal decomposition or combustion products may include the following substances: Carbon monoxide (CO). Carbon dioxide (CO2). Sulphurous gases (SOx).

Advice for firefighters
- Protective actions during firefighting: No specific firefighting precautions known.
- Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and appropriate protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Personal precautions: Wear protective clothing as described in Exposure Controls/personal protection.

Environmental precautions
- Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains or watercourses or onto the ground.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
- Methods for cleaning up: Avoid generation and spreading of dust. No smoking, sparks, flames or other sources of ignition near spillage. Dampen spillage with water or cover with wet sand. Collect and place in suitable waste disposal containers and seal securely.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
- Usage precautions: Avoid spilling. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid handling which leads to dust formation. Prevent accumulation of dust. Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
- Storage precautions: Store in tightly-closed, original container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Protect from light. Earth container and transfer equipment to eliminate sparks from static electricity. Keep separate from food, feedstuffs, fertilisers and other sensitive material.
- Storage class: Chemical storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
- Ingredient comments: No exposure limits known for ingredient(s).

Exposure controls
- Appropriate engineering controls: Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation. Use explosion-proof ventilating equipment.
- Eye/face protection: Eyewear complying with an approved standard should be worn if a risk assessment indicates eye contact is possible. Unless the assessment indicates a higher degree of protection is required, the following protection should be worn: Tight-fitting safety glasses.
- Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn if a risk assessment indicates skin contact is possible. It is recommended that gloves are made of the following material: Polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Rubber (natural, latex).
- Other skin and body protection: Provide eyewash station and safety shower. Wear appropriate clothing to prevent any possibility of skin contact. Anti-static suit. Anti-static boots.
- Hygiene measures: Use engineering controls to reduce air contamination to permissible exposure level. Wash at the end of each work shift and before eating, smoking and using the toilet.
- Respiratory protection: Particulate filter, type P2.
