|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Highly flammable if powdered. Combustible. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust. Prevent build-up of electrostatic charges (e.g., by grounding).||Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|Eyes||Wear safety goggles.||Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Store and dispose of according to local regulations.||
