suitable, closed containers for disposal.
Reference to other sections
For disposal see section 13.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling
Further processing of solid materials may result in the formation of combustible dusts. The
potential for combustible dust formation should be taken into consideration before
additional processing occurs.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
For precautions see section 2.2.

SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands
before breaks and at the end of workday.
Personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166 Use equipment for eye
protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as
NIOSH (US) or EN 166(EU).
Skin protection
Handle with gloves. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove
removal technique (without touching glove's outer surface) to avoid skin contact
with this product. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with
applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands.
Body Protection
Choose body protection in relation to its type, to the concentration and amount of
dangerous substances, and to the specific work-place., The type of protective
equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the
dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
Respiratory protection
Respiratory protection is not required. Where protection from nuisance levels of
dusts are desired, use type N95 (US) or type P1 (EN 143) dust masks. Use
respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government
standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Control of environmental exposure
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains.
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
