First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure and keep person at rest. Seek medical


Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. If

irritation develops seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected areas with soap and water. If irritation

develops seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, foam, dry-powder or carbon dioxide.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a

fire, evolving noxious fumes such as carbon, sulfur and

nitrogen oxides.

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: In the event of a large spillage wear an air suit, rubber

gloves and Wellington boots and carefully collect up the

solid and transfer to a sealed container. Wipe up any

residual powder with a damp cloth and place in a container

for disposal. All material should be disposed of in

accordance with section 6.1.30. In the event of a small

spillage wear laboratory coat, eye protection, rubber gloves

and, if the spillage occurs outside a ventilated area, a

half air-fed suit or air-fed visor. Collect the solid

carefully and transfer to a sealed container. Wipe up any

residual solid with a damp cloth and place in a container

for disposal. All material should be disposed of in

accordance with section 6.1.03.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.

Protective rubber gloves (14 inch PVC gauntlets BS EN374.1),

paper suits and safety goggles (BS2092.2.I.C grade 2 impact

resistant and chemical splash resistant) should be worn.

Where dust generation cannot be avoided, provide and use

local exhaust ventilation. Where local exhaust ventilation

is impracticable, wear an aproved air-fed visor (TM 14/7.25)

or half air suit (prEN 943 or TM 14/7.27).

Storage: The location should be maintained at ambient temperatures,

be cool, dry and well ventilated.

The substance should be stored in the original container

that should be correctly labelled and kept tightly closed

when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Fibre board drums with double lined polyethylene.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: In normal use as a synthetic intermediate no recycling of

the substance is possible as it is completely converted

during the production processes. Spilled material should be

collected and disposed of by incineration.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is not considered to constitute an immediate


Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: None.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is the preferred method of destruction.

Suitable abatement measures for oxides of nitrogen, carbon

monoxide, carbon dioxide and sulphur containing gases should

be set in place for incinerator waste gases.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: This is not considered to be a normally suitable method for

destruction of the material. However, adverse effects on

sewage treatment systems would be unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

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