Combustible. Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.
NO open flames. NO contact with combustible substances. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust.
Use water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.
Fresh air, rest.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention .
Wear safety spectacles.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
