a Hazardous Substance, and published by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission/AGPS, 1999
SECTION 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
First Aid: Take a copy of this MSDS to medical advisers if signs or symptoms of overexposure occur
and medical attention is required.
Swallowed: DO NOT induce vomiting. Immediately wash mouth out with water and then give
water to drink. If symptoms develop or persist, seek immediate medical attention.
Skin: Wash gently and thoroughly with water and non-abrasive soap. Contaminated clothing and
footwear should be removed as soon as practical and thoroughly cleaned before reuse. If, irritation
develops or persists, seek medical attention. NOTE: Contaminated clothing may be a fire hazard.
Eye: Wash with copious amounts of water for approximately 15 minutes holding eyelid(s) open.
Take care not to rinse contaminated water into non affected eye. If irritation develops or persists,
seek immediate medical attention.
Inhaled: Remove source of contamination or victim to fresh air. Ensure airways are clear and have
qualified person give oxygen through a facemask if breathing is difficult. If breathing has stopped,
have a qualified person begin artificial respiration or, if the heart has stopped, cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) immediately (avoid mouth-to-mouth contact and do not breath in the patient’s
expired air). If irritation develops and persists, seek IMMEDIATE medical attention.
First Aid Facilities: An eye wash fountain, safety shower and a general washing facility should be
available immediately adjacent to the work area.
Advice to Doctor: Treat symptomatically. For further information, contact the Poison Information
Centre.

SECTION 5 -FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Hazchem Code: None allocated.
Extinguishers: Water. Use water spray to cool containers exposed to fire and massive quantities of
water to dilute material involved in a fire.
Fire Fighting Precautions: Wear Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (S.C.B.A.) and full protective
clothing to minimise exposure.
Other Precautions: Not flammable. However, it may increase the burning rate of combustible
material with which it comes in contact with. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced
particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion and can undergo a slow, self-sustaining
decomposition, producing heat and toxic gases. Fire heated containers may rupture/explode.
SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Remove all sources of ignition. Increase ventilation. Use full protective clothing and equipment to
minimise exposure. Sweep/mop/vacuum up spill and avoid generating dust. Collect the material
with non-sparking tools and place into a suitable container for recycling or disposal. Wash surfaces
well with water. If a large quantity of this material enters the environment, contact the relevant
regulatory authorities.
SECTION 7 - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling: Repeated or prolonged contact with this material should be avoided in order to lessen
the possibility of skin/respiratory disorders. Use in a well ventilated area. Do not use near welding
operations, flames or hot surfaces. Wear appropriate protective equipment. It is essential that all
who come into contact with this material, maintain high standards of personal hygiene i.e. washing
hands prior to eating, drinking, smoking or going to the toilet. Build-up of dust in the working
atmosphere must be prevented. Ensure ventilation is adequate. DO NOT enter confined spaces
where airborne dusts exceed exposure limits. Keep containers closed when not in use.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, out of direct sunlight. Keep containers closed
when not in use and securely sealed and protected against physical damage. Inspect regularly for
deficiencies such as damage or leaks. Avoid sparks, flames and other ignition sources. Store away
from incompatible materials such as flammable/combustible materials, reducing materials,
corrosive materials (strong acids or bases). Use corrosion-resistant structural materials and lighting
and ventilation systems in the storage area. Wood and other organic/combustible materials should
not be used on floors, structural materials and ventilation systems in the storage area.
Incompatibilities:
ORGANIC MATERIALS (including all flammable and combustible materials) –
increase risk of fire and explosion.
REDUCING AGENTS (readily oxidisable materials) – May react violently.
NITROGEN CONTAINING COMPOUNDS (eg ammonia, ammonium salts,
urea) – may form hazardous nitrogen trichloride.
ACIDS (especially hydrochloric acid) – reaction generates chlorine gas.
BASES (for example, soda as solution) – may form nitrogen trichloride

SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
Exposure Standards: No ingredients in this product have exposure standards, as outlined in the
standard Exposure Standards for Atmospheric Contaminants in the Occupational Environment third
edition, published by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission/AGPS, 1995.
Engineering Controls: Provide sufficient ventilation to keep airborne levels below the exposure
limit. Where dusts are generated and exposure standards are exceeded, the use of respiratory
protection, or a local exhaust ventilation system is recommended.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Clothing: Suitable impervious protective clothing/overalls.
Skin Protection: Suitable impervious protective gloves and safety boots as required.
Eye Protection: Chemical safety glasses with face shield. Refer to Australian/New Zealand
Standards AS/NZS 1337, Eye Protectors for Industrial Applications.
Respiratory Protection: Avoid breathing of dusts or vapours. Where ventilation is inadequate and
dust or vapours are generated the use of a respirator with filter complying with Australian /New
Zealand Standards AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716 is recommended. Filter capacity and respirator
type depends on exposure levels.
Personal Hygiene: Always wash hands after using this product. Always wash hands before eating or
drinking.
