First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Treat symptomatically. Get medical
attention if symptoms occur.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Any material that is in the eye should be washed out
immediately with water. Get medical attention if symptoms
occur.
Emergency measure - Skin: After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of
soap and water. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use appropriate agent e.g. water and carbon dioxide for
adjacent fire.

Product arising from burning: Hazardous decomposition products include oxides of sulphur
and oxides of nitrogen.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective
clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Collect up and put in a suitable container. Avoid generating
dust. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual
contamination.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid breathing dust at concentrations greater than the
exposure limits. Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged or
repeated contact with skin. Use with adequate ventilation.
Wash thoroughly after handling.

Storage: Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep from contact with
oxidizing materials. Store at cool conditions (5 - 30
degrees C). Keep container closed.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance will be imported in plastic bags inside of
cardboard cartons.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported.

Chemical reaction with water: Experience in use and structure activity relationships
indicate that the test substance is not hazardous in contact
with water or humid air.

Dust explosion: There are no data or experience indicating this substance
presents a dust explosion hazard; however no testing has
been conducted to characterize its dust explosibility
properties. Fines of this substance, like those of many
organic dusts, may be capable of forming explosible dust
clouds in air. Minimize dust generation and accumulation.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Use adequate
ventilation.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: It is not practical to recover or recycle the substance.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: It is not practical to neutralize the substance

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: A temperature of 1000 degrees C is expected to be sufficient
to destroy the substance. Combustion will produce oxide of
nitrogen and oxides of sulphur. Stack gases should be
scrubbed because noxious fumes (eg carbon and nitrogen
oxides and chlorine containing compounds) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Computer model (SIMPLETREAT) program predicts 93% removal in
water purification plants, predominately by adsorption to
sludge.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable, the substance will not enter the public
domain.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable
