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 with 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 vomiting. 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. Obtain medical attention.

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 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.


Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

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 avoid 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.


Ignition Controls: Bond and earth (ground) all plant and
equipment to ensure that no isolated conductors are present.
Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient electrostatic
charge to produce discharges of many hundreds of milli-
Joules.

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: 25L drums.

Exposure controls / personal protection

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 not
classified for human health at this level of supply.



The dust hazard will be minimised by good industrial hygiene
such as bonding and grounding.


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.

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
and chlorine containing compounds) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.
