Classification : It is not regarded as Hazardous.


Fire and Explosion : Will not support combustion but does contain some organic material which will
burn or decompose if subjected to heat.

SECTION 4 – FIRST AID MEASURES


Eye contact : Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting lower and
upper eyelids occasionally. Get medical attention immediately if irritation persists.

Skin contact : Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove

mouth to an unconscious person.

Inhalation : Remove to fresh air area. If breathing becomes difficult, get medical attention.

SECTION 5 – FIRE–FIGHTING MEASURES

Extinguishing media
– Suitable : Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.
Special risk : Fine dust dispersed in air in sufficient concentrations, and in the presence of an ignition
source is a potential dust explosion hazard. As with most organic solids, fire is possible
at elevated temperatures or by contact with an ignition source.

Other information : In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained
breathing apparatus with full facepiece operated in the pressure demand or other
positive pressure mode.
