Notes to Physician:
SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in
pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full
protective gear. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced
particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Scoop up with a nonsparking tool, then place into a suitable
container for disposal. Provide ventilation.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Handling:Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Storage:Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped
with an eyewash facility and a safety shower.
Personal Protective Equipment
Eyes:Wear chemical goggles.
Skin:Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Clothing:Wear a chemical apron.
Respirators:A NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying dust or mistrespirator or European Standard EN 149.
