(3) Risk overview

Hazard category
Intrusion route:
Health Hazards: This product is non-toxic to humans. Inhalation of high concentrations can cause mild irritation to the respiratory tract, and it is irritating as a foreign body into the eyes.
Environmental hazards:
Explosion Hazard: This product is flammable

(4) First aid measures

Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing and rinse with running water.
Eye Contact: Lift eyelids, rinse with running water or saline, seek medical attention.
Inhalation: quickly leave the scene to fresh air, keep the airway open, if breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing stops, give artificial respiration immediately and seek medical attention.
Ingestion: Drink enough warm water, induce vomiting, seek medical attention.

(5) Fire protection measures

Hazardous properties: Reacts violently with calcium, cesium carbide, chlorine, cobalt fluoride, fluorine, iodine trifluoride, manganese trifluoride, rubidium carbide, silver fluoride, and potassium-sodium alloys. The dust reacts with flames or contact with oxidants and is a moderate risk.

Hazardous Combustibles: Silica

Extinguishing method: Use dry powder and dry sand to extinguish the fire. Water is prohibited. Carbon dioxide is prohibited.

(6) Emergency treatment of leakage

Emergency treatment: isolate the leaked contaminated area and restrict access. Cut off the source of ignition. It is recommended that emergency personnel wear dust masks and general work clothes. Small spills: Avoid dust, collect with a clean shovel in a dry, clean, covered container. Large Spills: Wet with water, then divert for recovery.

(7) Handling and storage

Operation precautions: closed operation, local exhaust. Operators must undergo special training and strictly abide by operating procedures. Keep away from fire, heat sources, and smoking is strictly prohibited in factory premises. Use explosion-proof ventilation systems and equipment. Avoid fugitive dust. Avoid contact with oxidants. When handling, it should be lightly loaded and unloaded to prevent damage to packaging and containers. Equipped with the corresponding variety and quantity of fire fighting equipment and leakage emergency treatment equipment. Empty containers may be harmful residues.

Storage Precautions: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated warehouse. Keep away from tinder heat sources. The packaging is required to be sealed and not in contact with the air. It should be stored separately from oxidants, etc., remember to mix storage. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. Prohibit the use of mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks. Storage areas should be provided with suitable materials to contain spills.
