SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
GENERAL ADVICE: Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Move out of dangerous area.
EYE EXPOSURE: Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. A victim may need help keeping their eyelids open. Seek immediate medical attention. Continue rinsing during transport to hospital.
SKIN EXPOSURE: Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Seek medical attention.
INHALATION: Move victim into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Seek medical attention.
INGESTION: Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Seek medical attention.
SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES
Suitable Use dry chemical.
Unsuitable DO NOT USE WATER!
CONDITIONS OF FLAMMABILITY:
Flammable in the presence of a source of ignition when the temperature is above the flash point. May burn in presence of air, or emit a flammable gas in the presence of water or water vapor. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flame/hot surface/air/water. No smoking.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION AND DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS:
Carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and Tantalum oxides
ADVICE FOR FIRE FIGHTERS
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Beware of vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas.
For personal protection see section 8.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not allow material to enter drains or streams.
METHODS AND MATERIALS
Contain spillage, and then collect with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and place in container for disposal according to local regulations (see section 13). Do not flush with water.
SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist.
Keep away from sources of ignition – No smoking. Take measures to prevent the buildup of electrostatic charge.
CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Never allow product to get in contact with water during storage.
Handle and store under inert gas. Air sensitive.
Exposure to air, moisture.
SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
COMPONENTS WITH WORKPLACE CONTROL PARAMETERS
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use a full-face air-purifying respirator with multi-purpose combination or type ABEK respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards.
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: Wear chemical safety goggles, faceshield. Use equipment for eye protection tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH or EN.
SKIN PROTECTION: Compatible chemical-resistant gloves. Inspect gloves before each use. Use proper glove removal technique 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: Complete suit protecting against chemicals, flame retardant antistatic protective clothing, the type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
