4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye: If in eyes, hold eyelids apart and flush continuously with running water. Continue flushing until advised to stop by a Poisons Information Centre, a doctor, or for at least 15 minutes.

Inhalation: If inhaled, remove from contaminated area. Apply artificial respiration if not breathing.

Skin: If skin or hair contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and flush skin and hair with running water. Continue flushing with water until advised to stop by a Poisons Information Centre or a doctor.

Ingestion: For advice, contact a Poison Information Centre on 13 11 26 (Australia Wide) or a doctor (at once). If swallowed, do not induce vomiting.

Advice to Doctor: Treat symptomatically.

5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Flammability: Non-flammable. May evolve toxic gases if strongly heated.

Fire and Explosion: No fire or explosion hazard exists.

Extinguishing: Prevent contamination of drains or waterways.

Hazchem Code: None Allocated

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Spillage: If spilt (bulk), use personal protective equipment. Ventilate area where possible. Contain spillage, then collect and place in suitable containers for disposal. Avoid generating dust.

7. STORAGE AND HANDLING

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, removed from oxidising agents, acids and foodstuffs. Ensure containers are adequately labelled and tightly closed when not in use. Protect from moisture.

Handling: Before use carefully read the product label. Use of safe work practices are recommended to avoid eye or skin contact and inhalation. Observe good personal hygiene, including washing hands before eating. Prohibit eating, drinking and smoking in contaminated areas.

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure Standards: No exposure standard(s) allocated.

Biological Limits: No biological limit allocated.

Engineering Controls: Avoid inhalation. Use in well ventilated areas. Where an inhalation risk exists, mechanical extraction ventilation is recommended. Maintain dust levels below the recommended exposure standard.

PPE:

Eye / Face: Wear dust-proof goggles.

Hands: Wear PVC or rubber gloves.

Body: When using large quantities or where heavy contamination is likely, wear coveralls.

Respiratory: Where an inhalation risk exists, wear a Class P1 (Particulate) respirator.

16. OTHER INFORMATION

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT GUIDELINES: The recommendation for protective equipment contained within this ChemAlert report is provided as a guide only. Factors such as method of application, working environment, quantity used, product concentration and the availability of engineering controls should be considered before final selection of personal protective equipment is made.

HEALTH EFFECTS FROM EXPOSURE: It should be noted that the effects from exposure to this product will depend on several factors including: frequency and duration of use; quantity used; effectiveness of control measures; protective equipment used and method of application. Given that it is impractical to prepare a ChemAlert report which would encompass all possible scenarios, it is anticipated that users will assess the risks and apply control methods where appropriate.
