Storage & Handling

Handling

Handle away from heat and humidity sources (if possible in covered and well ventilated premises). Avoid contact with incompatible substances (organic materials and reducing agents, especially fuels, oils, greases, etc.). Avoid contact with eyes and skin (wear appropriate personal protective equipment: glasses, gloves and mask in case of dust). Prevent any contamination of the environment via the sewers or water sources.

Storage
  • Do not store with reducing agents, organic materials, especially fuels, oils, greases, etc.
  • Do not store with explosive substances that may detonate.
  • Do not store close to a heat source that could cause temperatures to approach the decomposition temperature.
