GHS Hazard and Precautionary Statements

Hazard Statements: H228-H260-H500

Flammable solid. In contact with water releases flammable gases which may ignite spontaneously. May form combustible dust concentrations in air

Precautionary Statements: P210-P223-P231+P232-P240-P241-P280-P335+P334-P370+P378q-P501c

Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Keep away from any possible contact with water, because of violent reaction and possible flash fire. Handle under inert gas. Protect from moisture. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/ equipment. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. Brush off loose particles from skin. Immerse in cool water/wrap in wet bandages. In case of fire: Use CO2, dry chemical, or foam Dispose of contents/ container to an approved waste disposal plant
