First aid measures
On contact with eyes: flush with water On prolonged contact with skin: wash with soap and water On breathing dust: breathe plenty of fresh air On ingestion: do not induce emasis because of risk of aspiration harmless if swallowed
Accidental release measures
Recover in a manner to minimise the generation of dust.
Handling and storage
Dust from dry granules is a nuisance dust. If required, use local exhaust ventilation.
Exposure controls/personal protection
Local exhaust ventilation and general ventilation should be provided to control atmospheric dust to below the occupational exposure standard: UK EH40: Total inhalable 10mg/m3 8h TWA, respirable 4mg/m3 8h TWA.
Use disposable facemask as respiratory protection, which meets the requirements of EN149 FFP2 (S), if this occupational exposure standard would otherwise be exceeded.
If prolonged exposure is expected, use gloves to minimise skin contact. Select glove types to suit work being carried out.
No particular specification is required to suit the dust.
Where there is a risk of entry of dust into the eye, wear safety goggles. In the case of abnormal skin sensitisation, consult a medical adviser for a suitable barrier cream.

Stability and reactivity
Very stable with no potential, adverse reactions under normal conditions. Will react with acidic solutions which may produce an exothermic reaction. Decomposes to magnesium oxide and calcium oxide at approx. 750ºC with evolution of carbon dioxide.
No adverse ecological effect.
Waste material is considered inert and may be disposed of in sanitary landfills. In the U.K. observe duty of care requirements.
No special risk. Non-hazardous.
U.K. occupational exposure standard 10mg/m3 (8 hour TWA total inhalable) nuisance dust.
