|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Risk of fire and explosion.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking. Do NOT expose to friction or shock. Use non-sparking handtools. Prevent deposition of dust. Closed system, dust explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.||Use water in large amounts. In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.|
|PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!|
|SYMPTOMS||ACUTE HAZARDS||FIRST AID|
