DEVELOPMENTAL TOXICITY: Not available.

The substance is toxic to lungs.

Repeated or prolonged exposure to the substance can produce target organs damage. Repeated or prolonged

inhalation of dust may lead to chronic respiratory irritation.

 

Section 4: First Aid Measures

Eye Contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Do not use an eye ointment. Seek medical attention.

Skin Contact:

After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Gently and thoroughly wash the contaminated skin

with running water and non-abrasive soap. Be particularly careful to clean folds, crevices, creases and groin.

Cover the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. Wash contaminated

clothing before reusing.

Serious Skin Contact:

Wash with a disinfectant soap and cover the contaminated skin with an anti-bacterial cream. Seek immediate

medical attention.

Inhalation: Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area. Seek immediate medical attention.

Serious Inhalation: Not available.

Ingestion:

Do not induce vomiting. Examine the lips and mouth to ascertain whether the tissues are damaged, a possible

indication that the toxic material was ingested; the absence of such signs, however, is not conclusive. Loosen

tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If the victim is not breathing, perform mouth-to-mouth

resuscitation. Seek immediate medical attention.

Serious Ingestion: Not available.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Precautions:

Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a fire risk, evaporate the

residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. Do not ingest. Do not breathe dust. In

case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment If ingested, seek medical advice immediately

and show the container or the label. Avoid contact with skin and eyes Keep away from incompatibles such as

moisture.

Storage:

Keep container dry. Keep in a cool place. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep container tightly

closed. Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place. Combustible materials should be stored away from extreme heat

and away from strong oxidizing agents.

 

Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Engineering Controls:

Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below

recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to

airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.

Personal Protection:

Splash goggles. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent.

Gloves.

Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:

Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self contained breathing apparatus should be used
