VI.   REACTIVITY DATA

Stability:  Stable

Conditions to Avoid:  N/A

Incompatibility (Material to Avoid):  Contact with acids generates hydrogen sulfide gas.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:  Oxides of Zinc, Copper Aluminum and sulfur may be evolved at extreme temperature.

Hazardous Polymerization:  Will not occur.

 

 

VII.   SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Steps to Be Taken in Case Material Is Released or Spilled:  Ventilate area of spill.  Clean-up using methods which avoid dust generation such as vacuuming (with appropriate filter to prevent airborne dust levels which exceed the PEL or TLV), wet dust mop or wet clean-up.  If airborne dust is generated, use an appropriate NIOSH approved respirator.

Waste Disposal Method:  Dispose of in accordance with applicable government regulations.

 

 

VIII.   SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

Respiratory Protection (Specify Type):  Use a appropriate NIOSH approved respirator if airborne dust concentrations exceed the TLV  or PEL.  All appropriate requirements set forth in 29 CFR 1910.134 should be met.

Ventilation:  Use local exhaust ventilation which is adequate to limit personal exposure to levels which do not exceed the TLV or PEL.  If such equipment is not available, use respirators as specified above.

Protective Gloves:  Gloves are recommended when prolonged or repeated contact is likely.

Eye Protection:  Safety glasses or goggles are recommended.

Other Protective Equipment/Work Practices:  N/A

 

 

IX.   SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS

Precautions to Be Taken in Handling and Storage:  Maintain good housekeeping procedures to prevent accumulation of dust.  Use clean-up methods which minimize dust generation such as vacuuming or wet clean-up.  If airborne dust is generated, use an appropriate NIOSH approved respirator.

Other Precautions:  Wash thoroughly after handling and before eating or smoking and at the end of the work shift.  Do not shake clothing or other items to remove dust.  Use a vacuum.  Avoid dust inhalation and direct skin contact.  Do not ingest.
