4: First Aid Measures
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with running water for at
least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Cold water may be used.
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. Cold water may be used. Cover
the irritated skin with an emollient. If irritation persists,
seek medical attention. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.
Serious Skin Contact: Not available.
Inhalation: Allow the victim to rest in a well ventilated area.
Seek immediate medical attention.
Evacuate the victim to a safe area as soon as possible. Loosen
tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If breathing
is difficult, administer oxygen. If the victim is not breathing,
perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Seek medical attention.
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.

6: Accidental Release Measures
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in
a convenient waste disposal container.
Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal
container. Be careful that the product is not present at a concentration
level above TLV. Check TLV on the MSDS and with local authorities.
7: Handling and Storage
Keep locked up 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. Wear suitable protective clothing
If ingested, seek medical advice immediately and show the container
or the label.
Keep container dry. Keep in a cool place. Ground all equipment
containing material. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a
cool, well-ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials
should be stored in a separate locked safety storage cabinet or
8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
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: Safety glasses. Lab coat. Dust respirator.
Be sure to use an approved/certified respirator or equivalent.
Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:
Splash goggles. Full suit. Dust respirator. Boots. Gloves. A self
contained breathing apparatus should be used to avoid inhalation
of the product. Suggested protective clothing might not be sufficient;
consult a specialist BEFORE handling this product.
TWA: 1 (mg/m3) from ACGIH
