|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Risk of explosion on contact with reducing agents or organic materials.||NO contact with incompatible materials: See Chemical Dangers||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.|
|PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|Inhalation||Cough. See Effects of long-term or repeated exposure.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest.|
|Skin||Redness.||Protective gloves. Protective clothing.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness.||Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||See Effects of long-term or repeated exposure.||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
