Ingestion: Inhalation: Notes to Physician:

If swallowed, do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures

General Information:

Extinguishing Media: Autoignition Temperature: Flash Point: Explosion Limits: Lower: Explosion Limits: Upper: NFPA Rating:

As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion. Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam. 375 deg C ( 707.00 deg F) Not applicable. N/A N/A health: 2; flammability: 1; instability: 1; Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures

General Information: Spills/Leaks:

Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8. Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation. Section 7 - Handling and Storage

Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid breathing dust. Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.
