First-aid measures

Inhalation - Consult a physician if respiratory tract irritation occurs.
Skin contact - Cool affected area as soon as possible in cold water; be sure to leave plastic in place.
Place furacin soluble dressing on plastic & surrounding area. Cover affected area with
protective bandage. Consult a physician in case of a severe burn.
Eye contact - Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact
lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention.
Ingestion - Rinse mouth thoroughly. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is
unconscious or is having convulsions. Get medical attention immediately.
Most important symptoms/effects, acute & delayed -  Respiratory tract irritation, thermal burns from molten material, chronic exposure may pose a silicosis risk.
Indication of immediate medical attention & special treatment needed - In case of shortness of breath, give oxygen. Keep victim warm. Keep victim under observation. Symptoms may be delayed.
General information - If exposed or concerned: get medical attention/advice. Ensure that medical personnel
are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves.
Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Fire-fighting measures

Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters - Wear self contained breathing apparatus in the positive mode to
avoid smoke and fumes. Avoid direct contact with water to
avoid splattering of molten plastic.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment
and emergency procedures - Keep unnecessary personnel away. Do not touch damaged containers
or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. See
Section 8 of the SDS for Personal Protective Equipment.
Methods and materials for containment
and cleaning up - Granular material may be scooped up or swept. Allow molten material
to cool and then dispose of in accordance with Federal, State and Local

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling - Avoid inhaling dust particles. Wash hands after use. Do NOT eat, drink, or
smoke in work areas.
Conditions for safe storage, including
any incompatibilities - Keep in a ventilated area when possible. Store in a cool, dry area and away from acids or oxidizers.
