PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
Prevent deposition of dust; closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.

EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety goggles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: P2 filter respirator for harmful particles).
    Separated from strong oxidants, acids.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    BROWN SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.




    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic and irritating fumes including nitrogen oxides (see also ICSC # 0930). Reacts with strong acids and strong oxidants.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powered.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system , resulting in tremors, excitement and respiratory depression.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point (decomposes): 260C
    Melting point: 120-121C
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: 125
    Flash point: 170.0C
    Auto-ignition temperature: 490C
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    N O T E S
    Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
