First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, move

exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing is difficult or

ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as

appropriate. The exposed subject should be kept warm and at

rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible

over exposure, or symptoms including chest pain, difficulty

breathing, loss of consciousness or other adverse effects,

which may be delayed.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water.

Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove

contaminated clothing and flush exposed area with large

amounts of water. Obtain medical attention if skin reaction

occurs, which may be immediate or delayed.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Never attempt to induce vomitting. Do not attempt to give

any solid or liquid by mouth if the exposed subject is

unconscious or semi-conscious. Wash out the mouth with

water.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, dry powder or foam extinguishers are recommended.

Carbon dioxide extinguishers may be ineffective.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in

a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen

oxides).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow

individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material

unless wearing appropriate protective clothing.

Avoid dust formation.

Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage

systems and poorly ventilated areas. If spill is outdoors,

cover with plastic sheet to minimise spreading or contact

with rain.

For clean-up collect and place it in a suitable, properly

labelled container for recovery or disposal. After all solid

or absorbent material has been collected, the area should

be vacuumed with HEPA filter-equipped apparatus.

No specific decontamination or detoxification procedures

have been identified for this material. Consider use of

water, detergent solutions, or other soluble solvents, for

clean-up and decontamination operations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to minimise exposure.

Avoid dispersion as a dust cloud.

Depending upon the scale of the operation, use of

appropriate exhaust ventilation is recommended to provide

routine control of fire and explosion hazards during

handling of this material.

Any mechanical operations used for particle size reduction

should be performed in manner that do not produce localised

heating. Keep this material away from all form signition

such as open flames, mechanical sparks, frictional heat and

hot surfaces.

Storage: Keep in tightly closed containers or packages away from

moisture and away from sources of ignition.

Avoid prolonged storage at elevated temperatures (greater

than room temperature, approximately 20 degrees C).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 50 litre containers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Avoid direct sunlight, conditions that might generate heat

and dispersion as a dust cloud.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: Under normal conditions of use this material does not

present a significant explosion hazard. However, like most

organic compounds it is combustible and may form a dust

explosion if widely dispersed in air.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from

minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be

disposed of by incineration. In principle, it  may be

possible to recover larger spillages of

uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is

harmful by oral ingestion. There are also concerns due to a

positive result in the Ames study in the absence of

metabolic activation.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous health properties.

The dust hazard will be minimised by appropriate handling

and storage.

No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the

hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed

with inert material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by

incineration at an authorised tip in accordance with local

regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning

under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases

should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon

oxides)could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly

tothe sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
