First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at

least 15 minutes. Seek urgent medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected area with soap and water. Seek medical

attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse out mouth with water. Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water fog, foam, carbon dioxid and dry chemicals.

Product arising from burning: The substance has been determined to be highly flammable and

will burn if involved in a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg

carbon, and nitrogen oxides and also cobalt containing

compounds). However, there is no experimental evidence to

support the anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

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 "Handling".

Avoid possible 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 containers.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent.

Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in

accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

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

conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with

any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled

appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate

international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166.

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be

used. e.g. a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

minimum.

Storage: Store away from naked flame. Avoid oxidisers and explosives.

Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Brown coloured polyplastic bottle (3 l)

organic powder.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will not occur as all waste is

incinerated. However, recovery from minor spillages or

accidental discharge is not economically or technically

feasible, and such waste material will be disposed of by

incineration or landfill. In principle, it may be possible

to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated material for

subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None

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

landfill 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,

nitrogen, fluorine and phosphorus 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.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable
