Notes to Physician:
Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. This material in sufficient quantity and reduced particle size is capable of creating a dust explosion.
Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Avoid generating dusty conditions.
Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
Do not breathe dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not store near combustible materials.
Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
