Special protective equipment and precautions for fire fighters
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. Special Hazards Arising: Carbon & Nitrogen oxides. As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use proper PPE as indicated in Section 8.
Environmental precautions
Avoid generating dusty conditions. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide ventilation.
Methods and materials for containment and clean up
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment Section,
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Precautions for safe handling
Wash thoroughly after handling. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
