Other InformationM
 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

 
Suitable Extinguishing MediaWater, or as for other chemicals present.
 
Hazards from Combustion ProductsDecomposes on heating emitting soot, smoke and decomposition products.
 
Specific MethodsIn case of small fire/explosion use water. In case of major emergency use PPE: breathing apparatus and protective gloves.
 
Specific HazardsMild oxidiser. This material is not a combustible or flammable solid. However, under certain conditions this material, if sufficiently distributed in air and a suitable source of ignition is present, may cause a dust explosion.
 
Precautions in connection with FireM
 
Unsuitable Extinguishing MediaM
 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

 
Emergency ProceduresM
 
Spills & DisposalAvoid generating dusts. Wear suitable protective equipment. Ventilate area. If possible wet area down to prevent high dust levels. If available, use dustless methods, such as a HEPA vacuum and filter. Otherwise, use a non-sparking shovel and place into a suitably labeled container for later disposal. Do not dry sweep.
 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

 
Precautions for Safe HandlingM
 
Conditions for Safe StorageStore in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep containers closed, when not using the product. Store in original packages as approved by manufacturer.
 
Storage RegulationsM
 

 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

 
Biological Limit ValuesM
 
Engineering ControlsConsider local mechanical exhaust/extraction if dust risk exists.
 
Respiratory ProtectionM
 
Eye ProtectionM
 
Hand ProtectionM
 
Personal Protective EquipmentAvoid contact with the skin and eyes. Avoid breathing the dust. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-
Safety glasses
Gloves, rubber or plastic
The use of a respirator is not normally required, however, if high dust levels are present, then the use of a suitable dust mask or half-face respirator with a P1 filter is recommended. All respirators must comply with AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
