Section 4 - Fire and Explosion Hazard Data
Flash Point: N/A
FLAMMABLE LIMITS: N/A
LEL: N/A
UEL: N/A
Extinguishing Media: Use fine dry sand. Do not use water or any type of chemical extinguisher.
Special Fire Fighting Procedures: As packaged for shipment, under an inert atmosphere, the powder is not flammable. Should the packaging be opened or damaged so as to expose the contents to air, the risk of flammability is increased.
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards(s): N/A
Section 5 - Reactivity Data
Stability: N/A
Conditions to Avoid: Fine particle size and elevated temperatures will increase chance of oxidation. Extreme heat is generated during oxidation, and powder will glow red-hot and create a fire hazard. If exposed to water during oxidation, hydrogen may be released from water.
Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid): Avoid contact with mineral acids, moisture, and long term exposure to air. Reacts violently with halogens.
Hazardous Decomposition or Byproducts : N/A
Hazardous Polymerization: N/A
Section 6 - Health Hazard Data
Health Hazards (Acute & Chronic): N/A
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
Procedure ForProcedure
Eyes
Irrigate with water for at least 15 minutes
Skin
Wash off in flowing water or shower. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with the skin. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Ingestion
Induce vomiting if large amounts are ingested. Consult medical personnel.
Inhalation
Remove to fresh air if effects occur. Consult a physician.
Section 7 - Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Spill Procedure: The flammable nature of the powder must be considered in a clean-up operation. Particularly if particle sizes are below 10 microns. Spilled material must be placed in a sealed container. Wear approved protective equipment during the cleanup of powder spills. Collect spills by dry sweeping methods.
Waste Disposal Method: Salvage spilled material profitably for reuse locally or contact the appropriate local authority for guidance on acceptable waste disposal methods.
Precautions to be taken in Handling and Storing: Avoid inhalation of dust and minimize skin contact. No food or smoking when working with the powder. Keep containers tightly closed. Avoid contact with mineral acids, moisture and long-term exposure to air. Store under a dry, inert atmosphere (nitrogen or argon).
Section 8 Control Measures
Respiratory Protection: Use NIOSH-approved (high efficiency particulate air filter) dust respirators whenever dust levels are encountered.
Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses.
Skin Protection: Wear impervious gloves to prevent skin contact.
Ventilation: Use local exhaust ventilation at the point of dust generation. The potential reactivity of the fine particles that are collected by a dust collection system should be considered when operating these systems.
Work / Hygienic Practices: N/A
WARNING: RARE EARTH MAGNETS ARE EXTREMELY POWERFUL! They have very strong magnetic forces which make them attract to other magnets and other ferromagnetic materials such as iron or steel. HANDLE WITH EXTREME CAUTION!
