First-aid measures

Substance represents an isolated transported inertmediate. The producer and the user guarantee the respective protection measures. The following concerns both the use as isolated intermediate and the minor use (<1t/a) as technical chemical.
General advice: Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.
Eye contact: In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water. Obtain medical attention.
Inhalation: Provide fresh air. Consult a physician.
Ingestion: Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Specific hazards during fire fighting: May form explosive gas / air mixtures.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Suitable extinguishing media: Dry sodium chloride, Limestone powder, Extinguishing powder based on class B + D (DIN EN 2).
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam
Further information: Be aware of a dangerous reaction with water, if the container is ruptured.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Should not be released into the environment. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
Methods for cleaning up: Never allow contact with water. Cover spilled material with limestone powder. Use mechanical handling equipment. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Handling
Safe handling advice: Handle under inert gas. Never allow water to come into contact with the product. Stored product may form hydrogen gas by hydrolysis.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Storage
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep only in the original container in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Storage stability
Storage temperature: < 0 °C During storage magnesium hydrides are formed.
