Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation.
Eyes: Wear safety glasses with side shields. Skin: Wear appropriate gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
A NIOSH/MSHA approved air purifying dust or mist respirator or European Standard EN 149.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Stable under normal shipping and handling conditions.
Strong oxidizing agents. Explosive mixtures may be formed with fluorine or potassium nitrite.
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, toxic fumes of sodium oxide.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air. Combustion generates toxic fumes. Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) to prevent contact with thermal decomposition products. Extinguishing media: For small fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam.
Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air.
5 (Substances and products with a low hazard& potential)
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause irritation.
May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
May cause respiratory tract irritation.
May cause skin irritation.
May cause mild eye irritation.
