Precautions for Safe Handling and Use



===========================================================================



Steps If Matl Released/Spill: AVOID USING COMPRESSED AIR TO MANEUVER



SPILLS/LEAKS OF FINE MATERIAL. FINE MATERIAL SHOULD BE SWEPT UP/VACUUMED.



NO PROBLEM IS ASSOCIATED WITH SPILLS/LEAKS OF LUMP MATERIAL. KEEP WET



MATERIAL SEPARATED FROM DRY MATERIAL. *



Neutralizing Agent: NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER. *



Waste Disposal Method: AVOID REPACKING WET MATERIAL IN SEALED CONTAINERS.



DISPOSE OF I/A/W APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL REGULATIONS. *



Precautions-Handling/Storing: EXCLUDE CONT W/MOISTURE & ACIDS AS MUCH AS



POSS. CALCIUM-SILICON ALLOYS SHOULD BE KEPT AWAY FROM SPARKS, HEAT & OPEN



FLAMES IN A WELL VENTD AREA. *



Other Precautions: MILLING: SPECIAL PREC, SUCH AS USE OF INERT ATMOSPHERE,



SHOULD BE USED WHEN SIZING TO MINUS 8 MESH. MINIMIZE AND CONTROL DUSTY



OPERATIONS. GRINDING WET MATL MAY BE HAZ DUE TO THE POSSIBILITY OF HYDROGEN



EVOLUTION. *



===========================================================================



Control Measures



===========================================================================



Respiratory Protection: IN DUSTY AREAS, USE NIOSH/MSHA APPROVED SCHEDULE



21C RESPIRATOR. *



Ventilation: LOCAL FOR DUSTY AREAS. PROVIDE VENTILATION DURING STORAGE OR



HANDLING OF MOIST MATERIAL. *



Protective Gloves: IMPERVIOUS GLOVES (FP N). *



Eye Protection: ANSI APVD CHEMICAL SAFETY GOGGLES (FP N) *



Other Protective Equipment: AS WITH OTHER METAL DUSTS AVOID CONTAMINATION



OF WORK CLOTHING. *



Work Hygienic Practices: NONE SPECIFIED BY MANUFACTURER. *



Suppl. Safety & Health Data: MP:>1292F,>700C. EXTING MEDIA: BURN ITSELF



OUT. DO NOT DISTURB METAL WHILE EXTING FIRE. EXPLO HAZ: READILY, GENERATE
