EMERGENCY FIRST AID PROCEDURES:
SECTION VI - REACTIVITY DATA
Incompatibility (Materials to avoid): Not Found (NF)
Hazardous Decomposition Products: Hazardous decomposition will not occur.
Hazardous Polymerization: Hazardous polymerization will not occur
SECTION VII - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES
Steps to be taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled: Use dustless methods such as a vacuum and place into closable container for disposal, or flush with water. Do not dry sweep. Flush spilled material into suitable retaining areas or containers with water to avoid airborne particulates. Keep upwind of generated dusts during clean up. Wear proper protective equipment.
Waste Disposal Method:
Dispose in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations.
SECTION VIII - SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION
Engineering Controls: Handle with adequate local exhaust ventilation for nuisance dust; see OSHA 29 CFR 1910.94 ventilation and CFR 1910.1000 (air contaminants). A source of clean water should be available to flush skin.
Respiratory Protection (Specify Type): If airborne concentrations exceed established limits, a NIOSH approved respirator should be worn. In order to limit exposure to NORM, production workers should wear appropriate NIOSH approved dust respirator when conditions are dusty, such as during clean up and equipment malfunction.
Skin Protection: Gloves recommended.
Eye Protection: Protection recommended.
SECTION IX - SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Precautions for Handling and Storing: Keep containers closed. Avoid eye and prolonged skin contact.
Other Precautions: None
