First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:

Pay attention to self-protection.

Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance. Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.

Do not leave victims unattended.

If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.


Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated.

After inhalation move subject to fresh air.

With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.

If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact

Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water.

Continue decontamination with polyethylene glycol 400 after initial rinsing with water and then wash with water and soap.

If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact

With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.

Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.


Rinse mouth.

Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.

Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:


Irritation of skin and mucous membranes


irritant effects

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:

The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation.

Coughing is a symptom of a respiratory tract irritation after inhalation of aerosols or mists from caustic liquids.

In the eye, irritating liquids cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, irritation of the conjunctiva and, in exceptional cases, damage to the cornea.

There is a danger of blindness if corneas are damaged!

Superficial irritations and only infrequent damage with ulcerations develop on the skin.

An irritation of the mucous membranes may develop and lead to coughing after inhalation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media:       Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       high volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Hazardous fumes in fires, specific to the product:

hydrochloric acid

Carbon oxides

Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic products may occur.

Advice for firefighters:

Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.

Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.

In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.

Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.

Pay attention to self-protection.

Keep out unprotected persons.

In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:


Keep unauthorized persons away

Environmental precautions:

Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).

Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.

If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Absorb with liquid-binding material, e. g.: chemisorption, diatomaceous earth, universal binder

Transfer into suitable containers.

Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Pack and label wastes like the pure substance. Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.

Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Use permissible in closed systems only. Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).

Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks. Do not ventilate into the open.

Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.


Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Suitable materials       stainless steel

Unsuitable materials       Light metals, copper, brass

Observe prohibition against storing together!

Further information

Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.

In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.

In the event of internal transportation, already-opened containers are to be kept closed in order to avoid spillage.

German storage class

Combustible / non-combustible liquids and solids not assigned to other storage classes.

Specific end use(s):

We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported in Section 1 SDS.

Exposure controls:

Engineering measures

Refill and handle product only in closed system.

Leak detection recommended

Wastewater can be added to a biological wastewater treatment plant.

Minimization of emissions by means of suitable technical measures such as flanges and valves with low leakage rates, recirculation of vapours.

Dispose of waste gases in a suitable incineration plant.

All precautionary measures indicated have to be observed.

Exposure controls

The substance must be handled under strictly controlled conditions in accordance with Article 17/18 of the REACH regulation.

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection

Accidental release measures

use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type P3) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.

Hand protection

Accidental release measures

Glove material       Nitrile/Chloroprene, for example, Nitopren 717, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany

Method              DIN EN 374

Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.

Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.

Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Eye protection
