3. Composition/ Information on ingredients

Potencially hazardous
Humates (coal dust, humic acids)
4. Hazards identification
The product, when wet, renders surfaces slippery.
5. First aid measures
Inhalation: No hazards which require special first aid procedures.
Skin Contact: No hazards which require special first aid procedures.
Eye Contact: Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water, also under the eyelids. If eye irritation occurs, consult a physician.
Ingestion: The product is not considered toxic based on studies on laboratory animals.
6. Fire fighting procedures
Suitable extinguishing media: Water, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide, dry power.
Fire extinguishing agents to avoid: None
Special fire fighting precautions: Wear respiratory protection to avoid breathing dust and smoke.
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Take precautions against explosion hazard associated with airborne concentrations of spore dust at high temperature.

7. Accidental release measures
Personal precautions: No special precautions required.
Environmental precautions: Take same precautions that one would take with dust.
Methods for cleaning up: Clean up promptly by scoop or vacuum. Avoid stirring up dust. Sweep up under a water mist to reduce dust potential. If contact with skin occurs wash skin with soap and water. Keep in suitable and closed containers for disposal. 

8. Handling and storage
Handling: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid dust formulation. Do not breathe dust. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of the workday.
