  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible.  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.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

   
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. 
Skin Redness. Roughness.  Protective gloves.  Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
