Storage: Keep container dry. Keep in cool place. Ground all equipment containing material. Keep container tightly
closed. Keep in a cool, well ventilated place. Highly toxic or infectious materials should be stored in a separate locked
safety storage cabinet or room.
Precautions: Keep locked up. Keep away from heat. Keep away from sources of ignition. Empty containers pose a
fire risk, evaporate the residue under a fume hood. Ground all equipment containing material. DO NOT ingest. DO
NOT breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. If ingested seek medical advice immediately and show the
container or the label. Keep away from incompatibles such as oxidizing agents, acids.
Small Spill and Leak: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish
cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose according to local and regional authority
