4. First-aid-measures

     General remarks: Make sure to protect yourself (see Hazards identification)
                      Remove contaminated clothes. In case of consciousness put the injured into the
                      recovery position and provide mouth-to-mouth resuscitation if necessary.

     Contact with skin: Wash with plenty of water and soap immediately.
                        Remove contaminated clothes.

     Contact with eyes: Rinse with plenty of water, keeping the eyes open.
                        Then immediately consult an eye doctor.

     Additional information on design of technical equipment:

                                   Dust should be removed by vacuum systems. Use only suitable
                                   separators or filters to guide waste air into the open.
                                   Provide uninterruptible potential equalization (grounding).

     Personal protection equipment:

     General measures:             Keep away from foodstuffs and beverages. Observe the usual
                                   precautionary measures for handling chemical substances.

     Respiratory protection:       In case of short-time or low exposure use fine-dust mask.
                                   In case of intensive or long-term exposure use breathing masks
                                   (combination filter ABEK2-P3).

     Hand protection:              Protective gloves

     Eye protection:               Tight-fitting protective goggles, keep eye rinsing bottle ready.

     Body protection:              Safety shoes and working clothes made of flame-retardant antistatic
                                   material (no synthetic fibres).
