Do not leave victims unattended.

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

Inhalation

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.

Ingestion

Rinse out mouth.

Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.

Consult a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

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

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

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

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

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

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. Contaminated fire-extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.

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

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Wear personal protective equipment

Environmental precautions

Prevent product from entering drains.

Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil or stretches of water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Fill into marked, sealable containers.

Suitable binder: universal absorbent, absorbent for liquids

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Observe the rules usually applicable when handling chemicals.

Wear personal protective equipment

Avoid residues of the product on the containers.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Storage

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

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

Unsuitable materials: light metals, iron

Further information
