2.9 Explosion limit: lower >500g/m3    upper : not determined

2.10 Thermal decomposition: above approx. 170-180C onset of decomposition

2.11 Hazardous decomposition Products: None, besides the usual products of combustion like CO and CO2.

2.12 Hazardous reaction: None on physical contact.

 3) Transport: Not hazardous goods according to the transport rules.

 4) Instructions

4.1 Since dusts from organic material may cause both explosions as well as irritation in the bronchial regions, the information of dust has to be avoided during filling operation and/or processing. Adequate ventilation must be provided, where ever necessary.

4.2 Generally the precautionary rules for the handling of chemicals, starches, and flours to be observed.

 5) Protective measure, storage and handling

5.1 Technical protective measures: Store in a cool and dry place and not together with strongly oxidizing materials.

5.2 Personal protective: Respiration protection i.e. respirators, eye protection goggles

Measure equipment: Hand protection and others. If strong dust formation is to be expected handling of large quantities.

5.3 Occupational hygiene:  Observe usual conditions for handling chemicals, starches, flours etc., (see point 4.1).

5.4 Fire/ explosion protection: Deposits of dust are to be avoided and regularly removed.

5.5 Disposal: Incinerate or disposal as chemical was according to local regulations.

 6) Measure to be taken in case of accidents and fire

6.1 After spill / leak / gas escape: In connection with water: slipper. Dry powder: sweep or scoop up or clean by vacuum.

6.2 Extinguishing materials: Powder or Foam extinguishers, CO2, Halon

6.3 First Aid: 

Skin contact: Flush and wash off

Eye contact: Flush eyes with lukewarm water for at least 15 minutes

Inhalation: May cause allergic reactions and irritate the respiratory ducts. Search for fresh air and call a physician if irritation persists.

7) Toxicological information:  Approximate 91% of the product is consisting of a harmless plant Polysaccharide. Chemical analysis shows other dry constituent to be protein, ash, fiber and fat.

8) Ecological information: The product is bio-degradable.

9) Additional remarks: The above information is giving in good faith and to the best of our knowledge. It is not intended guarantee specific properties but solely to assist in setting up suitable precautionary measures. No guarantee can be given for risks arising from unforeseen circumstances.
