4.) FIRST AID MEASURES
 
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
Skin Contact
Flush skin with water. Wash clothing before reuse. Call a doctor if irritation occurs.
Eye Contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a doctor.
Ingestion Contact
If swallowed, call a physician immediately.
Warning

5.) FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 
Extinguishing Media
Class D Fire: Use dry powder, dry sand or CO2 to smother fire.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures
Fire may also be isolated and allowed to burn itself out. Do not disturb burning metal while extinguishing the fire.
Fire and Explosion Hazzards
Lump material is not combustible. When suspended in air, dusts of silicon metal can be readily ignited, propagate flame, and generate some pressure or explode. The degree of combustibility in air is dependent upon particle size, oxide coating, and quality of dispersion. The hazard increases with particle fineness
Hazardous Combustion Products
No information found.
Protective Measure in Fire
Avoid generating sparks or ignition sources in areas of high airborne dust levels or in areas with accumulated dust. Thoroughly clean areas or equipment to be maintained prior to dust disturbing or ignition source generation activities.

6.) ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
 
Personal Precaution in Spill
Utilize recommended protective clothing and equipment.
Environment
Collect wash water for approved disposal. Keep from entering water or ground water.
Spill Clean Up
Clean spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air. Spill area can be washed with water.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols
Usage Descriptions
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Keep away from sources of ignition. No smoking. Take measures to prevent the buildup of electrostatic charge.
Storage Precautions
keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Over time, pressure may increase causig containers to burst. Moisture sensitive
Handling Precautions
Store at ambient temperature. Avoid breathing dust. Avoid getting in eyes or on skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. Store in a dry place away from direct sunlight, heat and incompatible materials. Reseal containers immediately after use. Store away from food and beverages.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Use local ventilation if dusting is a problem, to maintain air levels below the recommended exposure limit.
Process Conditions
OSHA TLV: 15 mg/m3
Respirators
Work ambient concentrations should be monitored and if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded, a NIOSH/MSHA approved dust respirator must be worn.
Protective Gloves
Wear PVC gloves.
Eye Protection
Wear safety glasses or goggles. Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be available.
Other Protection
Wear impervious boots and apron or coveralls.
Hygienic Work Practices
Educate and train employees in the safe use and handling of hazardous chemicals. Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking or using tobacco products.
