TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Finely dispersed particles form explosive mixtures in air.  Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Prevent deposition of dust.   
 
EXPOSURE See EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE.  PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation   Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety goggles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion   Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
BROWN SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air. 

Chemical dangers
May explode on heating. Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides, ammonia and hydrogen cyanide. Reacts with strong acids and strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body in hazardous amounts by ingestion. The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
