Administrative data

First-aid measures

General information

Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately

In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately.

In any case show the physician the Safety Data Sheet

After inhalation

Remove the casualty into fresh air and keep him calm.

After contact with skin

In case of contact with skin wash off immediately with polyethylene glycol 400, then with

plenty of water. If polyethylene glycol is not available, rinse of with plenty of water.

After contact with eyes

Rinse the affected eye with plenty of water, at the same time keep the unaffected eye well protected.

After ingestion

When swallowed, allow water to be drunk.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

water spray jet, dry powder, carbon dioxide, alcohol-resistant foam

Extinguishing media that must not be used for safety reasons

Full water jet

Special hazards from the substance itself, its combustion products or from its vapours

In case of fires, hazardous combustion gases are formed: Carbon monoxide (CO), Carbon dioxide (CO2), Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Under certain conditions of combustion traces of other toxic substances cannot be excluded

Special protective equipment for firefighting: Use self-contained breathing apparatus

Further information

Fire residues and contaminated firefighting water must be disposed of in accordance with the local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow entry to drains,water courses or soil

Methods for cleaning up/taking up

Take up with absorbent material (eg sand, kieselguhr, universal binder)

When picked up, treat material as prescribed under heading "Disposal".

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling

Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). Avoid spilling, spraying or splashing

When working with open containers, adequate suctioning off of the vapours is necessary.

Product should be worked up in closed equipment as far as possible.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

The product is combustible. The product vapours are heavier than air. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. Keep away from sources of ignition - refrain from smoking. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charges - earthing necessary during loading operations.

Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels

Storage rooms must be properly ventilated. Keep in original packaging, tightly closed

Advice on storage compatibility

Observe TRGS 514Ü (storage compatibility)

Exposure controls / personal protection

During its lifecycle the substance is handled under strictly controlled conditions and is rigorously contained.

Based on the knowledge of the basic hazards to humans and environment technical, organizational and PPE measures are taken to minimize release and exposure of this substance. National regulatory requirements for the handling of chemicals are also fulfilled. Employees are regularly trained. The efficiency of these measures is controlled e.g. by workplace measurements. In case of deviations these measures are adapted.

General protective measures

Observe the usual precautions for handling chemicals. Avoid contact with eyes and skin

Hygiene measures

Wash hands before breaks and after work. Use barrier skin cream.

Remove soiled or soaked clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again.

Respiratory protection : Full mask, Short term: filter apparatus, Filter A

Hand protection : Butyl rubber gloves. Minimum breakthrough time / gloves : > 480 min, Minimum thickness / gloves 0,35 mm

Nitrile rubber gloves. Observe the information of the glove manufacturers on permeability and breakthrough times and other workplace,

requirements. Minimum breakthrough time / gloves : < 125 min, Minimum thickness / gloves 0,35 mm

Eye protection : safety glasses, or face shield if necessary

Body protection : Clothing suitable to prevent skin contact.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions

Plastic materials can be attacked. Incompatible with acid chlorides and acid anhydrides. Reactions with oxidising agents. Reactions with halogens

Reactions with acids.

Hazardous decomposition products: Nitrous gases, Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide

Disposal considerations


Product should be be taken to a suitable and authorized waste disposal site in accordance with relevant regulations and if necessary after consultation with the waste disposal operator and/or the competent Authorities

Uncleaned packaging

Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of as product waste
