Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause mild eye irritation.
Skin: May cause skin irritation.
Ingestion: May cause irritation of the digestive tract.
Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation.
Chronic: No information found.
Section 4 - First Aid
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least
15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of soap and
water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.

Ingestion: If victim is
conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately.
If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear.
Section 5 - Fire
Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus
in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective
gear. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air.
During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal
decomposition or combustion.
Extinguishing Media: For small
fires, use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide or chemical foam.
Section 6 -
Accidental Release Measures
Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in
Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and
place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing
precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty
conditions. Provide ventilation.
Section 7 - Handling
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 ingestion and inhalation.
Storage: Store in
a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
Section 8 - Exposure
Controls, Personal Protection
Controls: Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control
