First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure. If breathing is feeble or ceases, give
artificial respiration. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse eyes throughly with water for at least 15 minutes.
Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Thoroughly wash exposed area
with soap and water. Obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Give copious amounts of water. Do not induce vomiting.
Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, dry chemical or foam mist.

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: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg.
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original substance containers.


Clean the spillage area with soap and water. Avoid washing
to drain.


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

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid the formation of dust. Engineering controls are
necessary to reduce exposure to the substance.


The substance must be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment must be worn.

Such protective equipment must conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard prEN374

Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,
be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a dry well ventilated area at an ambient
temperature. Dry material is usually stored in double
polythene-lined fibreboard kegs.


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 50kg packs in double-polyethylene-lined fibreboard drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: Under normal conditions of use this material does not
present a significant fire or 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 a
severe eye irritant and is harmful by acute oral exposure .

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 site 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 and
nitrogen oxides) 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. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely.
