First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation: If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

Eye contact: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

Skin Contact: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water [or shower]. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards: No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: CO2, dry chemical, foam, water spray, water fog.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Not determined.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Keep upwind. Keep unauthorized personnel away.

Environmental Precautions: Avoid release to the environment. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Dike far ahead of larger spill for later recovery and disposal. Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Do not breathe dusts or mists. Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not get in eyes. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Avoid environmental contamination.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed. Store in a well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls: Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded. Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
General information: Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Provide easy access to water supply and eye wash facilities. Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Eye/face protection: Wear tight-fitting goggles or face shield. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166.

Skin protection
Hand Protection: Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier. Chemical resistant gloves

General: Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.

Break-through time: Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove type.

For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.
For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.

Glove thickness: For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.
It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material. Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.

Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.

Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves (down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.

Other: Wear apron or protective clothing in case of contact. Chemical resistant boots. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material.

Respiratory Protection: A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator. Use respirator with a combination organic vapor and high efficiency filter cartridge if recommended exposure limit is exceeded. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the respiratory equipment. Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application. Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of the working conditions. Please refer to the relevant EN standards for the RPE selected.

Hygiene measures: Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapours/spray. Do not get this material in contact with skin. Do not get in eyes. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
