First-aid measures

FIRST AID MEASURES

INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. Administer artificial respiration if breathing has ceased. IMMEDIATELY consult a

physician.

SKIN CONTACT: In case of skin contact, IMMEDIATELY flush exposed skin thoroughly with plenty of water. While wearing

protective gloves, remove any contaminated clothing, including shoes and continue to wash skin

thoroughly with soap and water for at least 15 minutes. Get IMMEDIATE medical attention.

EYE CONTACT: In case of eye contact, immediately rinse eyes thoroughly with plenty of water. If wearing contact lenses,

remove only after initial rinse, and continue rinsing eyes for at least 15 minutes. If irritation occurs or

persists, consult a physician.

INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting unless under the direction of a qualified medical professional or Poison Control

Center. IMMEDIATELY consult a physician. Do not attempt to give anything by mouth to a seizing,

drowsy or unconscious person. If alert, rinse mouth and drink a glass of water.

FIRST AID RESPONDER PROTECTION: Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect

themselves with appropriate personal protective equipment. Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a

pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. DO NOT use

mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance.

NOTE TO PHYSICIAN: In cases of overexposure treat supportively and symtomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:

Carbon dioxide (CO2), extinguishing powder or water spray.

UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA:

None known.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE

EXPLOSION HAZARDS:

Under normal conditions of use, this material does not present a significant fire or explosion hazard. However, like most organic compounds, this

material may present a dust deflagration hazard if sufficient quantities are suspended in air. This hazard may exist where sufficient quantities of finely

divided material are (or may become) suspended in air during typical process operations. An assessment of each operation should be conducted and

suitable deflagration prevention and protection techniques employed. The sensitivity of this material to ignition by electrostatic discharges has not been

determined. In the absence of testing data, all conductive plant items and operations personnel handling this material should be suitably grounded.

SPECIAL FIRE HAZARDS:

Emits toxic and corrosive fumes under fire conditions.

THERMAL DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:

Carbon monoxide (CO). Carbon dioxide (CO2).

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES:

Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS:

Avoid generation of dust during clean-up. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment as specified in Section 8. Keep personnel away from the

clean-up area.

METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP

SPILL RESPONSE / CLEANUP:

All spills should be handled according to site requirements and based on precautions cited in the MSDS. In the case of liquids, use proper absorbent

materials. For laboratories and small-scale operations, incidental spills within a hood or enclosure should be cleaned by using a HEPA filtered vacuum or

wet cleaning methods as appropriate. For large dry or liquid spills or those spills outside enclosure or hood, appropriate emergency response personnel

should be notified. In manufacturing and large-scale operations, HEPA vacuuming prior to wet mopping or cleaning is required.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

HANDLING:

Avoid breathing dust. Avoid dust generation. Avoid contact with skin and clothing. Keep containers adequately sealed during material transfer, transport,

or when not in use. Wash face, hands, and any exposed skin after handling. Do not eat, drink, or smoke when using this substance or mixture.

Appropriate handling of this material is dependent on many factors, including physical form, duration and frequency of process or task, and effectiveness

of engineering controls. Site-specific risk assessments should be conducted to determine the feasibility and the appropriateness of all exposure control

measures.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY IMCOMPATIBILITIES

STORAGE:

Store at 15-25 deg C. Store in adequately sealed container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection: respirator with P3 filter

Eye protection: safety glasses with side-shields

Hand protection: During the handling of the substance according to the intended use protection gloves from nitrile rubber have been proved. During the handling of pure solid substances or powder mixtures a permeation of the rubber material is not to be expected. In case of doubt, especially

during handling of the substance together with organic solvents, the stability of the protection gloves has to be clarified with the manufacturer.

Skin and body protection: Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.

Stability and reactivity

Stable under conditions specified in Section 7 of this SDS. No hazardous reactions known.

CONDITIONS AND MATERIALS TO AVOID:

Strong oxidizers.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS / REACTIONS:

No dangerous decomposition is expected if used according to manufacturer's specifications.

Disposal considerations

WASTE TREATMENT METHODS

MATERIAL WASTE:

Disposal must be in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial, and/or local regulations. Incineration is the preferred method of disposal, when

appropriate. Operations that involve the crushing or shredding of waste materials or returned goods must be handled to meet the recommended

exposure limit(s).

PACKAGING AND CONTAINERS:

Disposal must be in accordance with applicable federal, state/provincial, and/or local regulations.
