First Aid Measures
General advice Immediate medical attention is required. In case of accident or unwellness, seek medical
advice immediately (show directions for use or safety data sheet if possible). If symptoms
persist, call a physician.
Eye contact Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. If
symptoms persist, call a physician. Immediately flush with plenty of water. After initial
flushing, remove any contact lenses and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Keep eye
wide open while rinsing.
Skin Contact Wash off immediately with plenty of water. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. If skin
irritation persists, call a physician. Immediate medical attention is not required. Wash off
immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and
Inhalation Remove to fresh air If symptoms persist, call a physician Artificial respiration and/or oxygen
may be necessary Call a physician Immediate medical attention is not required Move to
fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapors
Ingestion Immediate medical attention is not required. Rinse mouth. Drink plenty of water. Do NOT
induce vomiting. Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician.
Self-protection of the first aider Remove all sources of ignition. Use personal protective equipment as required.

to minimize spreading and keep powder dry. Take up mechanically, placing in appropriate
containers for disposal. Avoid creating dust. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly. Soak
up with inert absorbent material. Dam up. Pick up and transfer to properly labeled
containers. Sweep up and shovel into suitable containers for disposal. After cleaning, flush
away traces with water. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.


Advice on safe handling Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Keep away from heat, sparks,
flame and other sources of ignition (i.e., pilot lights, electric motors and static electricity).
Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Use spark-proof tools and
explosion-proof equipment. All equipment used when handling the product must be
grounded. Use with local exhaust ventilation. Use personal protective equipment as
required. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray.

See more Bismuth products. Bismuth (atomic symbol: Bi, atomic number: 83) is a Block P, Group 15, Period 6 element with an atomic radius of 208.98040. The number of electrons in each of Bismuth's shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 18, 5 and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s2 6p3. Bismuth Bohr ModelThe bismuth atom has a radius of 156 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 207 pm. In its elemental form, bismuth is a silvery white brittle metal. Bismuth is the most diamagnetic of all metals and, with the exception of mercury, its thermal conductivity is lower than any other metal. Elemental BismuthBismuth has a high electrical resistance, and has the highest Hall Effect of any metal (i.e., greatest increase in electrical resistance when placed in a magnetic field). Bismuth is found in bismuthinite and bismite. It is also produced as a byproduct of lead, copper, tin, molybdenum and tungsten extraction. Bismuth was first discovered by Early Man. The name Bismuth originates from the German word 'wissmuth,' meaning white mass.
