EXPOSURE


 •INHALATION Cough.
Avoid inhalation of dust .
Fresh air, rest.
 •SKIN

Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles .
First rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Remove all ignition sources. Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting.
Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases, strong acids .
