TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
Prevent deposition of dust; closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.

EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN
Protective gloves.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety spectacles
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting, then remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
Separated from oxidants.

Signal: Warning
Excl mark
Harmful if swallowed
Causes eye irritation
Harmful to aquatic life

MAK not established.


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion. mouse: 1400 mg/kg, rat: 5410 mg/kg (34);

INHALATION RISK:
A nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes.
