First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice:
First aider needs to protect himself. Move out of dangerous area. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Call a physician if irritation develops or persists.
Skin contact:
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.
Eye contact:
In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If victim is fully conscious, give a cupful of water. Call a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry powder
Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons:
High volume water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
The product is not flammable.
Fire may cause evolution of:
carbon oxides (CO, CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Cobalt/Cobalt oxides
Hydrogen cyanide (hydrocyanic acid)
Advice for firefighters
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not let product enter drains. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Use mechanical handling equipment.
Sweep up and shovel into suitable containers for disposal.
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
Exhaust ventilation at the object is necessary. Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Hygiene measures:
Keep working clothes separately. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls
Occupational exposure controls
The Personal Protective Equipment must be in accordance with EN standards:respirator EN 136, 140,149; safety glasses EN 166; protective suit: EN 340, 463, 468, 943-1, 943-2; gloves EN 374, 511; safety shoes EN-ISO 20345.
Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Engineering measures
Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Hand protection:
Glove material: Natural Latex
Break through time: > 480 min
Glove thickness: 0,6 mm
Gloves must be inspected prior to use.
Replace when worn.
Remarks:Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy. Due to varying conditions ( e.g.temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374. Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove manufacturer reccomends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recomended permeation time. Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types . Suitable gloves tested according EN 374 are supplied e.g. from KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell,
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields
Skin and body protection:
Protective suit
Environmental exposure controls
Handle in accordance with local environmental regulations and good industrial practices.
