Physician: No specific antidote exists. Treat symptomatically and
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.
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: Sweep up, then place into a
suitable container for disposal. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Section 7 - Handling
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with
adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact
with skin and eyes. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
