Personal precautions
Use personal protective equipment.
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid breathing dust.

6.2 Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions
: Prevent product from entering drains.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up
: Contain spillage, and then collect with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13).

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
: Avoid formation of respirable particles.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
For personal protection see section 8.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the ap-plication area.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
Persons susceptible to skin sensitisation problems or asth-ma, allergies, chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this mixture is being used.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
: Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.

Hygiene measures
: General industrial hygiene practice. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully re-sealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Electrical installa-tions / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. To maintain product quality, do not store in heat or direct sunlight.

Advice on common storage
: No materials to be especially mentioned.

Further information on stor-age stability
