Notes to Physician:
**** SECTION 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES ****
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in
pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full
protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases
may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Runoff from
fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
Use extinguishing media most appropriate for the surrounding fire.
Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
**** SECTION 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ****
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated
in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal
container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the
Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
**** SECTION 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE ****
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and
wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust
generation and accumulation. Avoid breathing dust, vapor, mist, or
gas. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container
tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.
Keep container closed when not in use. Store in a tightly closed
container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from
**** SECTION 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION ****
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped
with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate
ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.
Personal Protective Equipment
