First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
If aerosol or mists are formed:
Move victims into fresh air.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult doctor immediately.
Skin contact
Wash off immediately with plenty of water.
In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Eye contact
Keeping eyelid open, immediately rinse thoroughly for at least 5 minutes using plenty of water or, if necessary, eye rinsing solution.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult an ophthalmologist.
Have the mouth rinsed with water.
Call a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
After absorbing large amounts of substance:
Liberation of reaction products (Methanol) can lead to symptoms of poisoning.
Possible signs of poisoning:
daze, dizziness, nausea, colicky abdominal pain, respiratory disturbance.
Symptoms upon increasing intoxication: dysopia, loss of eyesight.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Immediate gastric lavage. Antidote treatment, correction of acid-base balance.
Detection of substance (Methanol) possible in:
Antidote treatment: ethanol.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray jet
Dry powder
Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

Advice for firefighters
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Retention of fire-extinguishing water in Germany: see FireExtinguishing Water Retention Directive "LoeRueRL":
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Transfer into suitable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

Suitable binder: sand (for damming up)

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Application, processing: ensure sufficient ventilation

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Standard procedure for chemical fires.
Store in original container.
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Protect from frost.
The product might flocculate at low temperatures. The flocculations disappear as soon as the temperature is increased again. This does not cause any impairment to the quality.
Protect from moisture.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type ABEK) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Use only respiratory protection equipment with CE-symbol including four digit test number.
The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
Hand protection
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)
Material thickness 0,4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
Safety glasses
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Protective measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of directive 89/686/EEC and amendments (CE certification).
If workplace exposure limits are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Stability and reactivity

No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

Chemical stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Possibility of hazardous reactions No dangerous reactions known.

Conditions to avoid
Protect from moisture.

Incompatible materials

Hazardous decomposition products
Methanol in case of hydrolysis.
Alcohol formed by hydrolysis lowers the flash point of the product.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
