FLAMMABILITY.
REACTIVITY
PPE (Sec.8)
Eye contact: Not an irritant. Flush thoroughly with water. Seek Medical attention if irritation persist.
Inhalation:
Excessive inhalation may cause irritation of the nose, throat and respiratory tract.
None currently known.
Ingestion:
Not an irritant, not a sensitizer. Wash contaminated areas with soap and water.
Dermal contact:
Medical Conditions Aggravated By Long-Term Exposure to this product:
Respiratory disorders, such as asthma, maybe aggravated by prolonged exposure to high
concentrations of this product.
Chronic Effects:
If use generates airborne particulates, treats a a NUISANCE PARTICULATE (ACGIH TLV= 10. mg/cu meter)
Signs and symptoms of exposure:
Prolonged exposure to dusts of this product may irritate the respiratory system.
Physical Hazard:
Not classified as flammable or combustible. It will burn in case of fire. Avoid contact with strong oxidizer.
SECTION 4 FIRST AID MEASURES
Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. Treat any irritation symptomatically. Call a physician if condition persists.
Eye Contact: In case of contact immediately flush with plenty of low pressure water for at least
15 minutes. Remove any contact lenses to ensure thorough flushing.
Skin Contact: Wash well with soap and running water.
Ingestion:
Dilute stomach contents with 1-2 glasses of water.
After first aid, get appropriate in-plant paramedic or community medical support
if serious signs and symptoms persist.

Flash Point Method: N/A
Burning Rate:
N/A
Auto Ignition Temperature: Not Determined
LEL:
N/A
UEL:
N/A
Flammability Classification:
1 Slight (HMIS, NFPA)
Extinguishing Media:
Water spray, dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, or halon type extinguishers.
Unusual Fire of Explosion Hazards:
May form flammable dust-air mixture.
Hazardous Combustion Products:
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and smoke.
Under certain conditions some aliphatic aldehydes and carboxylic acids
may form.
Fire-Fighting Instructions: Do not release runoff from fire controls methods to sewers or waterways.
Fire-Fighting Equipment: Because fire may produce toxic thermal decomposition products, wear a
self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with full facepiece operated
in pressure-demand or positive-pressure mode.
SECTION 6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Spill / Leak Procedures:
N/A
Small Spills: Scoop into a container for disposal, suction up remaining material with a high efficiency
vacuum cleaner.
Large Spills: Scoop into a container for disposal, suction up remaining material with a high efficiency
vacuum cleaner.
Containment: For large spills, avoid suspending particles, collect for later disposal. Do not release
into sewers or waterways.
Cleanup:
No special requirements.
Regulatory Requirement: N/A
SECTION 7 HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling Precautions:
Storage Requirements:
Regulatory Requirement:
Keep containers closed at all times. Avoid creating dust. Keep away from ignition sources.
Store in a cool, dry location.
N/A
SECTION 8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering Controls:
Ventilation:
Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations
below OSHA PELs (sec.2). Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant
dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.
Administrative Controls:
Respiratory Protection:
Seek professional advise prior to respirator selection and use.
Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and, if necessary, wear
a MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its suitability
to provide adequate worker protection for given working conditions, level of
airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or
nonroutine operation (cleaning spills, reactor vessels, or storage tanks), wear
an SCBA. Warning! Air-purified respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient
atmospheres.
Protective Clothing/Equipment: Wear chemically protective gloves, boots, aprons, and gauntlets to prevent
prolonged or repeated skin contact. Wear protective eyeglasses or
chemical safety goggles, per OSHA eye and face protection regulations
(29CFR 1910.133). Contact lenses are not eye protective devices. Appropriate
protection must be worn instead of, or in conjunction with contact lenses.
Safety Stations:
Make emergency eyewash stations and washing facilities available in work area.
Contaminated Equipment: Separate contaminated work clothing from street clothes. Launder before
re-use. Remove this material from your shoes and clean personal protective
equipment.
Comments: Never eat, drink, or smoke in works areas. Practice good personal hygiene after using this
material, especially before eating, drinking, using the toilet, or applying cosmetics.
