4. FIRST AID MEASURES

General advice Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration Consult a physician.

In case of skin contact Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.

In case of eye contact Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.

If swallowed Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

 

5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

 

6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the

environment must be avoided.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

 

7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling Avoid formation of dust and aerosols.Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.

Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Normal measures for preventive fire

protection.

Conditions for safe storage Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.

 

8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection 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 government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN

(EU).

Hand protection The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the

standard EN 374 derived from it.

Handle with gloves.

Eye protection Face shield and safety glasses

Skin and body protection Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the

work place.

Hygiene measures Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the

product.

Signs and Symptoms of Exposure  Lead salts have been reported to cross the placenta and to induce embryo- and feto- mortality. They also have

teratogenic effect in some animal species. No teratogenic effects have been reported with exposure to organometallic lead compounds. Adverse effects of lead on human reproduction, embryonic and fetal development, and postnatal (e.g., mental) development have been reported. Excessive exposure can affect blood, nervous, and digestive systems. The synthesis of hemoglobin is inhibited and results in anemia. If left

untreated, neuromuscular dysfunction, possible paralysis, and encephalopathy can result. Additional symptoms of overexposure include: joint and muscle pain, weakness of the extensor muscles (frequently the hand and wrist), headache, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, blue line on the gums, insomnia, and metallic taste. High body levels produce increased cerebrospinal pressure, brain damage, and

stupor leading to coma and often death., Anorexia., Vomiting, Convulsions, Nausea, Headache, Weakness, anemia, To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties have not been thoroughly investigated.
