SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
General:             Take proper precautions to ensure your own health and safety before attempting rescue
                     and providing first aid. For specific information refer to the Emergency Overview in Section
                     3 of this MSDS.

Inhalation:          If overcome by exposure, remove victim to fresh air immediately. Give oxygen or artificial
                     respiration as needed. Obtain medical attention if breathing difficulty persists.

Eye:                 Thoroughly flush the eyes with large amounts of clean low-pressure water for at least 15
                     minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation persists, seek medical
                     attention.

Skin:                Remove contaminated clothing as needed. Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and
                     water. Flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes. If sticky, use waterless cleaner first.

Ingestion:           Not expected to present a significant ingestion hazard under anticipated conditions of
                     normal use.

Special Conditions to Heat from fire may melt, decompose, and generate flammable vapors. When mixed with
Avoid:                air and exposed to ignition source, vapors can burn in open or explode if confined. Vapors
                      may be heavier than air. May travel long distances along the ground before igniting and
                      flashing back to vapor source. Melting alone may cause steam explosion on contact with
                      water.

Extinguishing Media: Suitable: SMALL FIRE: Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray or regular foam or Sand.
                     LARGE FIRES: Water spray. Water fog. Foam.

                       Unsuitable: No additional information available.

Fire Fighting          Protective Equipment/Clothing:      Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing
Instructions:          apparatus (SCBA). Structural firefighters protective clothing will only provide limited
                       protection.

                       INSTRUCTIONS: Move containers form fire area if you can do it without risk. Fight fire
                       from a safe distance/protected location. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water
                       until well after fire is out. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor
                       nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn. Withdraw immediately in
                       case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank. Always stay away
                       from tanks engulfed in fire.


SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Release Response:      Extinguish all ignition sources. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. With clean
                       shovel place material into clean, dry container and cover loosely; move containers from spil
                       area. Avoid generating dust. Potential dust explosion hazard. For large spills: Wet down
                       with water and dike for later disposal. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or
                       confined areas.


SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
Handling:              Use good housekeeping practices during storage, transfer, handling, and use to avoid
                       excessive dust accumulation/rendering airborne. All electrical equipment should be
                       grounded and conform to applicable electric codes and regulatory requirements.
                       Pneumatic conveyance or transfer of this powder must be accomplished in a nitrogen or
                       other inert gas atmosphere rather than air. Sampling procedures, including transporting
                       and handling, should avoid dust/vapor inhalation and skin/eye contact and only be
                       conducted with proper protective equipment. Follow standard plant procedures or
                       supervisor's instructions for decontamination operations.

Storage:               Store in dry protected location to prevent moisture contact.      All containers should be
                       labeled to warn against exposure.


SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
Engineering            If handling this material results in dust generation, special ventilation may be required to
Controls:              avoid exceeding exposure limit(s) for nuisance dust.

Personal Protection:

                                equipment must be cleaned thoroughly after each use.

                         Eye: Dust service goggles should be worn to prevent mechanical injury or other irritation to eyes
                              due to airborne particles which may result from handling this product.

Other Hygienic                  Selection of appropriate personal protective equipment should be based on an evaluation
Practices:                      of the performance characteristics of the protective equipment relative to the task(s) to be
                                performed, conditions present, duration of use, and the hazards and/or potential hazards
                                that may be encountered during use. Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers
                                should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.

 Recommended Work
         Practices Use good personal hygiene practices. Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or
                   using toilet facilities. Promptly remove soiled clothing/wash thoroughly before reuse.

          Target Organ Effects Mucous membrane irritant. Moderate eye irritant.

          CARCINOGENICITY: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC, 1987) states that styrene
          is 'possibly carcinogenic to humans' (Group 2B) based on 'inadequate evidence' in humans, 'limited
          evidence' in animals and other 'relevant data.' According to the IARC report, these 'other relevant data'
          include studies demonstrating that styrene is metabolized in humans to styrene oxide, an agent which is
          known to induce cancers in two animal species. Subsequent to this IARC evaluation, a long-term
          bioassay in CD-1 mice exposed to styrene vapors at 20, 40, 80, and 160 ppm showed a statistically
          significant increase in the incidence of lung adenomas, as well as degenerative changes in the cell lining
          of the nasal tract. Additionally, styrene has been shown to be mutagenic in several 'in vitro' assays.
          However, unlike some animal species, man apparently is able to readily detoxify the styrene oxide
          generated from styrene exposures. Moreover, studies in humans exposed to styrene for long periods of
          time have not demonstrated any carcinogenic effects.
