First-aid measures

General notes
Self-protection of the first aider.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical advice.
In case of unconsciousness place person in the recovery position. Never give anything by mouth.
Following inhalation
Provide fresh air.
Mouth to mouth resuscitation should be avoided. Use alternative methods, preferably with oxygen or
compressed air driven apparatus.
If breathing is irregular or stopped, immediately seek medical assistance and start first aid actions.
Following skin contact
Wash with plenty of soap and water.
If skin irritation occurs: Get medical advice/attention.
Following eye contact
Irrigate copiously with clean, fresh water, holding the eyelids apart.
Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention.
Following ingestion
Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting.
Get medical advice/attention.

Notes for the doctor

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

This information is not available.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Symptoms may develop several hours following exposure; medical observation therefore necessary
for at least 48 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water, foam, alcohol resistant foam, dry extinguishing powder
Unsuitable extinguishing media
water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous decomposition products: Section 10.
Danger of dust explosion.
Deposited combustible dust has considerable explosion potential.
Hazardous combustion products
nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen cyanide (HCN, prussic
acid), gas/ vapor, toxic
Advice for firefighters
Keep containers cool with water spray.
In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.
Co-ordinate firefighting measures to the fire surroundings.
Do not allow firefighting water to enter drains or water courses.
Collect contaminated firefighting water separately.
Fight fire with normal precautions from a reasonable distance.
Special protective equipment for firefighters
chemical protection suit, self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133)

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel
Remove persons to safety.
Ventilate affected area.
Do not breathe dust.
Control of dust.
Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so.

Wearing of suitable protective equipment (including personal protective equipment referred to under
Section 8 of the safety data sheet) to prevent any contamination of skin, eyes and personal clothing.
For emergency responders
Wear breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/spray/gases.

Environmental precautions
Keep away from drains, surface and ground water.
Retain contaminated washing water and dispose of it.
If substance has entered a water course or sewer, inform the responsible authority.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Advice on how to contain a spill
Covering of drains.
Implementation of capping procedures.
Take up mechanically.
Advice on how to clean up a spill
Take up mechanically.
Other information relating to spills and releases
Place in appropriate containers for disposal.
Ventilate affected area.


Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Provision of sufficient ventilation.
Control of dust.
Removal of dust deposits.
Do not breathe dust.
Measures to prevent fire as well as aerosol and dust generation
Use local and general ventilation.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Only vacuum cleaners containing no ignition sources may be used for combustible dusts.
Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/equipment.
Use only non-sparking tools.

Specific notes/details
Layers, deposits and heaps of combustible dust must be considered, like any other source which can
form a hazardous explosive atmosphere.
Dust deposits may accumulate on all deposition surfaces in a technical room.
Danger of dust explosion.
Measures to protect the environment
Avoid release to the environment.
Advice on general occupational hygiene
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas.
Preventive skin protection (barrier creams/ointments) is recommended.
Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.
Wash thoroughly after handling.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Explosive atmospheres
Removal of dust deposits.
Only vacuum cleaners containing no ignition sources may be used for combustible dusts.
Flammability hazards
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Incompatible substances or mixtures
Incompatible materials: see section 10.
Protect against external exposure, such as
heat, humidity, UV-radiation/sunlight
Consideration of other advice
Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.
Ventilation requirements
Keep any substance that emits harmful vapours or gases in a place that allows these to be perman-
ently extracted.
Provision of sufficient ventilation.
Specific designs for storage rooms or vessels
Store in a dry place. Store in a closed container.
Store contents under inert gas.
Protect from sunlight.
Packaging compatibilities
Keep only in original container.
