Section 4 - Fire and Explosion Hazard Data Flash PointN/A : FLAMMABLE LIMITSN/A : LELN/A : UELN/A : Extinguishing MediaUse fine dry sand. Do not use water or any type of chemical extinguisher. : Special Fire Fighting ProceduresAs 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 StabilityN/A : Conditions to AvoidFine 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 PolymerizationN/A :
Section 6 - Health Hazard Data Health Hazards (Acute & Chronic)N/A : Emergency and First Aid Procedures
Section 7 - Precautions for Safe Handling and Use Spill ProcedureThe 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 MethodSalvage 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 StoringAvoid 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 ProtectionUse NIOSH-approved (high efficiency particulate air filter) dust respirators whenever dust levels are encountered. : Eye ProtectionWear safety glasses. : Skin ProtectionWear impervious gloves to prevent skin contact. : VentilationUse 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 PracticesN/A :
WARNINGRARE 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!
