SPILL OR LEAK PRECAUTIONS: Wear appropriate protective clothing, gloves and equipment. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Contain spill . Transfer to secure containers and dispose of according to local and state regulations. Thought should always be given to collecting the material in such a manner that it could be
recycled. Clean/scrub affected area with detergent. Prevent run-off into sewers or
natural waterways. Spills in excess of the RQ must be reported to the local emergency response organizations. Major spills should also be reported to the National Response Center. Spills with potential to contaminate coastal waterways must be reported to the U.S. Coast Guard (800-424-8802) WASTE DISPOSAL: All containers should be effectively labeled to facilitate the appropriate disposal or reclaim. CERCLA Reportable Quantity: 10 pounds / 4.54 Kilograms (USA) SECTION VII HANDLING AND STORAGE
Store in sealed containers in dry, ambient temperature conditions (less than 110°F). Perform packaging in well-ventilated area wearing protective eye shields and clothing. SECTION VIII EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION
VENTILATION: Use only where sufficient ventilation exists to keep exposure levels of fumes and dust below recommended levels. RESPIRATORY AND PERSONAL PROTECTION: Respirators should be selected when TWA exceeded. Safety glasses with side shields; gloves, boots and apron as appropriate. Use respirators in accordance with the code of Federal regulations, labor part 1910.134. Use a positive pressure demand full face self contained breathing apparatus. FACILITIES: Consideration to properly engineered explosion suppression should be considered when large amounts of product are handled. There should be a shower facility and eyewash in the building where this product is being stored and handled. Exercise good chemical handling practice. Airborne Exposure Limits: OSHA PEL/8-Hr TWA: None established. Nuisance Dust. OSHA PEL/8Hr TWA= 15 mg/m3 (total dust). OSHA PEL/8 Hr TWA – 05 mg/m3 (respirable dust), ACGIH TLV/8 – Hr
