|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Combustible. Many reactions may cause fire or explosion. See Notes.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use water in large amounts.|
|EXPLOSION||Risk of fire and explosion.||Do NOT expose to friction or shock. Use non-sparking handtools. Prevent deposition of dust. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!|
|Inhalation||Headache. Nausea. Vomiting.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Protective gloves.||Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|Ingestion||Headache. Dizziness. Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention .|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Remove all ignition sources. Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! 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. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.||
