Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
NO open flames. Prevent deposition of dust. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.
Use foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide.
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!
Use ventilation (not if powder).
Fresh air, rest.
Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
Wear safety spectacles.
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.
According to UN GHS Criteria
Insufficient data for GHS classification
Transportation UN Classification
UN Hazard Class: 6.1; UN Pack Group: II
Separated from bases, strong oxidants and food and feedstuffs.
Chemical dangers Decomposes on contact with hot surfaces or flames. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes of nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). Reacts with strong oxidants and bases.
