First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Get medical attention if symptoms are severe or persist.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Get medical attention immediately.

Skin contact Remove contaminated clothing immediately and wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation persists after washing.

Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation persists after washing.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

General information: Repeated exposure may cause skin dryness or cracking. Entry into the lungs following ingestion or vomiting may cause chemical pneumonitis.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Notes for the doctor: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards: Combustible liquid. Containers can burst violently or explode when heated, due to excessive pressure build-up.

Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon monoxide (CO).

Advice for firefighters

Protective actions during firefighting: Cool containers exposed to heat with water spray and remove them from the fire area if it can be done without risk. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and appropriate protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions: Avoid inhalation of vapours and contact with skin and eyes. Wear adequate protective equipment at all operations.

For non-emergency personnel: Keep upwind to avoid inhalation of gases, vapours, fumes and smoke.

For emergency responders: Prevent unauthorized access. Use only in well-ventilated areas.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions: Avoid release to the environment. Stop leak if safe to do so. Avoid the spillage or runoff entering drains, sewers or watercourses. Inform the relevant authorities if environmental

pollution occurs (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Risk of soil and ground water contamination.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up: Immediately start clean-up of the liquid and contaminated soil. Large spills should be collected mechanically (remove by pumping) for disposal. Small Spillages: Absorb spillage with sand or other inert absorbent. Pay attention to the fire and health hazards caused by the product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Usage precautions: This material is a static accumulator. Avoid heat, flames and other sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. All handling should only take place in well ventilated areas. Try to avoid product volatilization during handling and transferring. Avoid inhalation of vapours and contact with skin and eyes. Use personal protective equipment and/or local ventilation when needed. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands and any other contaminated areas of the body with soap and water before leaving the work site. During tank operations follow special instructions (risk of oxygen displacement and hydrocarbons).

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Storage precautions: Flammable liquid storage. Store in accordance with local regulations. Keep container tightly closed, in a cool, well ventilated place. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Store in a demarcated bunded area to prevent release to drains and/or watercourses. Take precautions against leakage by constructing collecting pools and sewerage systems as well as by surfacing the loading and unloading stations.

Suitable container materials: Stainless steel. Carbon steel. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, Teflon). Polypropene Polyethylene.

Unsuitable container materials: Butyl rubber. Rubber (natural, latex). EPDM (ethylenepropylene-diene monomer). Polystyrene

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Ingredient comments: The individual limit values can be applied for the hydrocarbons.

DNEL: DNEL derivation is not justified.

PNEC: Not available.

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls: All handling should only take place in well-ventilated areas. Use personal protective equipment and/or local ventilation when needed. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Eye/face protection: Tight-fitting safety glasses.

Hand protection: Wear protective gloves. It is recommended that gloves are made of the following material: Nitrile rubber. Neoprene. The selected gloves should have a breakthrough time of at least 4

hours. Protection class 5. Protective gloves according to standards EN 420 and EN 374. Change protective gloves regularly.

Other skin and body protection: Protective clothing when needed. Wear anti-static protective clothing if there is a risk of ignition from static electricity.

Respiratory protection: Filter device/half mask Gas filter, type A2. Filter device could be used maximum 2 hours at a time. Filter devices must not be used in conditions where the oxygen level is low (< 19 vol.-%). At high concentrations a breathing apparatus must be used (self-contained or fresh air hose breathing apparatus). Filter must be changed often enough. Respirator according to standard EN 140.

Environmental exposure controls

Take precautions against leakage by constructing collecting pools and sewerage systems as well as by surfacing the loading and unloading stations.
