Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
NO open flames. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust.
Use water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!
Fresh air, rest.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
Wear safety goggles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.
