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.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Corrosive to aluminum and other metals
Irritating and toxic fumes and gases, sulfuric acid.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Extinguishing media: Substance is nonflammable; use agent most appropriate to extinguish surrounding fire.
Some may burn but none ignite readily. May polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Containers may explode when heated. Some may be transported hot.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Experimental animals exposed to massive doses have developed CNS depression. Two individuals administered 50 milligrams of zirconium malate intravenously developed vertigo. Small fractions of zirconium were absorbed in female rats by the oral route, and the metal seemed to concentrate in the ovaries and produce hypervascularization. <br>In mice, offspring of clams who received zirconium during pregnancy had long-lasting behavioral changes. <br>Zirconium is found in newborn rats. <br>In rats, zirconium appears in the breast milk.
The toxicological properties of this substance have not been fully investigated.

Causes eye irritation.
Get medical aid. Wash mouth out with water.
Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately.
