None expected.

SECTION 4. First Aid Measures

Emergency and First Aid Procedures
EYE CONTACT: Remove contacts if present. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water or saline solution. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
SKIN CONTACT: Wash skin with plenty of soap and water. If irritation occurs, seek medical attention.
INHALATION: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms appear. If exposed person is not breathing, give artificial respiration.
INGESTION: Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.

No data available.

SECTION 6. Accidental Release Measures

Steps To Be Taken In Case Material Is Released Or Spilled
SMALL SPILL: Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a disposal container.
LARGE SPILL: Reduce airborne dust and prevent scattering by moistening with water. CAUTION: Slippery when wet; can cause falls if walked on.
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: WATER SPILL: Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches that lead to waterways.
LAND SPILL: Shovel or sweep up material and place in waste container.

SECTION 7. Handling and Storage

Precautions To Be Taken in Handling
Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid breathing (dust, vapor, gas, mist). Keep container closed when not in use. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air. Reduce airborne dust and prevent scattering by moistening with water.
Precautions To Be Taken in Storing
Keep away from heat, sparks and flames. Store in a dry area.

SECTION 8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Respiratory Equipment (Specify Type)
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA 1910.134 and ANSI Z8.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.
Eye Protection
Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles) and a face shield.
Protective Gloves
PVC gloves may provide protection against permeation. Gloves of other chemically-resistant materials may provide adequate protection.
Other Protective Clothing
Wear a work uniform or Tyvek suit to provide protection from dust or particulate matter.
Engineering Controls (Ventilation etc.)
Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels.
Work/Hygienic/Maintenance Practices
Remove clothing and launder or dispose of in an approved waste disposal facility. Wash hands with soap and water after handling this product. Use good chemical hygiene practices when handling.
