5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Use alcohol foam, carbon dioxide, or water spray when fighting fires involving this material.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Do not use a sold water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Explosion Limits, Lower: 0.025g/L. Upper: Not available. Dust may form explosive mixture in air.
Hazardous Combustion Products
Carbon oxides. CaO
Protective Measure in Fire
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid dust formation. Remove all sources of ignition. Do not breathe vapors/dust.
Environment
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system. Do not let product enter drains.
Spill Clean Up
Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Sweep up or absorb material, then place into a suitable clean, dry, closed container for disposal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed
Usage Descriptions
Normal measure for preventive fire protection
Storage Precautions
Keep container closed tightly in a dry and well ventilated place
Handling Precautions
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. May form flammable dust-air mixtures. Store in a cool, dry place. Keep containers tightly closed. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces, and sources of ignition.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are proximal to the work-station location. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.
Process Conditions
Eye skin & Upper Respiratory tract irritation. Does not include stearates of toxic metals. Not classifiable as a human carcinogen
Respirators
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.
Protective Gloves
Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure.
Eye Protection
Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133.
Other Protection
Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
