Hazards and Protection.
Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use only in a well ventilated area. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
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 protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, using the appropriate protective equipment. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Oxidizing agents, bases, acid anhydrides, acid chlorides.
Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide, aldehydes.

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. Extinguishing media: Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
This chemical is combustible.
This compound may form explosive dust clouds. Static electricity can cause its dust to explode.
Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Animal studies have reported that fetal effects/abnormalities may occur when maternal toxicity is seen. Laboratory experiments have resulted in mutagenic effects. Repeated skin exposure may produce photoallergic contact dermatitis with persistent light reactivitiy.
May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Ingestion of large amounts may produce central nervous system depression, headache, dizziness, diarrhea, and possible hemorrhagic gastroenteritis.
Causes upper respiratory tract irritation. Causes irritation of the mucous membrane. Inhalation of dust may cause irritation of the nose and throat. Inhalation may cause liver, kidney, and bladder effects.
Causes mild skin irritation. May cause skin sensitization, an allergic reaction, which becomes evident upon re-exposure to this material.
May result in corneal injury. Causes severe eye irritation and possible injury.
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.
Immediately 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.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
