Personal Precaution in Spill
Wear respiratory protection. Avoid breathing vapors, mist, or gas. Evacuate personnel to save areas.
Environment
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Spill Clean Up
Sweep up and shovel. 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. Do not flush with water. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

7.) HANDLING AND STORAGE
 
Usage Precautions
Usage Descriptions
Laboratory chemicals, manufacture of substances.
Storage Precautions
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Never allow product to get in contact with water during storage. Do not store near acids. Air sensitive. Moisture sensitive. Heat sensitive.
Handling Precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Keep away from sources of ignition. No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.

8.) EXPOSURE CONTORLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
 
Protective Equipment
Impervious clothing. Flame retardant and antistatic protective clothing. This type of protective equipment must be selected according to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance at the specific workplace.
Process Conditions
Respirators
Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face particle respirator type N100 (US) or type P3 (EN 143) 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 govenrment standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Protective Gloves
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.
Eye 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).
Other Protection
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Hygienic Work Practices
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
