Hazards and Protection.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid contact with heat, sparks and flame. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use with adequate ventilation.
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to minimize contact with skin.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation. Clean up residual material by washing area with a 2-5% solution of soda ash.
Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
Strong oxidizers, metals, halogenated materials.
Carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide.

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Dusts may be combustible when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizing agents. Dust can be an explosion hazard when exposed to heat or flame. Extinguishing media: For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. Water or foam may cause frothing. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers.
This material is probably combustible.
OSHA PEL: 15 mg/m3 total dust, 5 mg/m3 respirable fraction for nuisance dusts.
Possible cancer hazard based on tests with laboratory animals. May cause cancer according to animal studies. Chronic exposure may cause liver damage.
Ingestion of large amounts may cause gastrointestinal irritation. May cause liver damage.
May cause respiratory tract irritation. May cause liver damage.
Causes mild skin irritation.
May cause eye irritation.
Do NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear. DO NOT use mouth-to-mouth respiration.
Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse.
Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
