suitable respiratory equipment If ingested, seek medical advice
immediately and show the container or the label. Avoid contact
with skin and eyes
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.
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.
Splash goggles. Lab coat. Dust respirator. Be sure to use an approved/certified
respirator or equivalent.
Personal Protection in Case of a Large Spill:
