First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
If difficulties occur after dust has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam, water spray, carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water jet
Additional information:
Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of
fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated
extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface
waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium
efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work
clothing is recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability:
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Dust explosion hazard.
Conditions to avoid:
Avoid dust formation. Avoid deposition of dust. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.
Avoid electro-static charge.
Substances to avoid:
strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents
Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated

Disposal considerations

Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.
Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
