First-aid measures

Ingestion:

Never attempt to induce vomiting. Do not attempt to give any solid or liquid by mouth if the

exposed subject is unconscious or semi-conscious. Wash out the mouth with water. If the

exposed subject is fully conscious, give plenty of water to drink. Obtain medical attention.

Inhalation:

Using appropriate personal protective equipment, move exposed subject to fresh air. If breathing

is difficult or ceases, ensure and maintain ventilation. Give oxygen as appropriate. The exposed

subject should be kept warm and at rest. Obtain medical attention in cases of known or possible

over exposure, or with symptoms including chest pain, difficulty breathing, loss of consciousness

or other adverse effects, which may be delayed.

Skin Contact:

Using appropriate personal protective equipment, remove contaminated clothing and flush

exposed area with large amounts of water. Obtain medical attention if skin reaction occurs, which

may be immediate or delayed.

Eye Contact:

Wash immediately with clean and gently flowing water. Continue for at least 15 minutes. Obtain

medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire and Explosion Hazards

This material is combustible. Fire and explosions might result if vapours are allowed to accumulate in the vicinity of a source of ignition.

Suitable Extinguishing Media:

Carbon dioxide, dry powder or foam extinguishers are recommended. Do not use water extinguishers. Water jets may intensify the fire or be ineffective.

Special Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters

Since toxic, corrosive or flammable vapours might be evolved from fires involving this material, self contained breathing apparatus and full protective equipment are recommended for firefighters. Move containers from the fire area if possible without increased personal risk. If possible, contain and  collect firefighting water for later disposal.

Specific Hazards arising from the Material

Toxic, corrosive or flammable thermal decomposition products are expected when the material is exposed to fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions:

Stop leak and eliminate all sources of ignition (no smoking, sparks or flames). Fence or cordon the affected area and do not allow individuals to touch or walk through the spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Wear protective clothing and equipment consistent with

the degree of hazard.

Environmental Precautions

Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, surface drainage systems and poorly ventilated areas.

Clean-up methods

Spread an inert absorbent on the spill and place in a suitable, properly labelled container for recovery or disposal.

Decontamination Procedures

No specific decontamination or detoxification procedures have been identified for this material.

Consider use of water, detergent solutions, or other soluble solvents  for clean-up and decontamination operations.

Handling and storage

General Requirements

Assess all operations involving this material for potential fire and explosion risks and take suitable precautions based on the guidance provided.

Depending upon the scale of operation, use of appropriate exhaust ventilation is recommended to provide routine control of fire and explosion

hazards during handling of this material. Ensure that any area in which this material is handled has sufficient ventilation to avoid the build up of

vapour and to control employee potential exposure to volatiles below National Occupational Exposure Limit

Ignition Controls

Bond and earth (ground) all plant and equipment to ensure that no isolated conductors are present. Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient electrostatic charge to produce discharges of many hundreds of milli-Joules. Bond and earth (ground) all plant and equipment to ensure that

no isolated conductors are present. Isolated conductors can accumulate sufficient electrostatic charge to produce discharges of many hundreds of milli-Joules. Keep this material away from all forms of ignition such as open flames, mechanical sparks, frictional heat and hot surfaces.

Conditions for Safe Storage

eep material in sealed containers in a cool, well-ventilated area away from sources of ignition.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Controls

An Exposure Control Approach (ECA) is established for operations involving this material based

upon the OEL/Occupational Hazard Category and the outcome of a site- or operation-specific risk

assessment. Refer to the Exposure Control Matrix for more information about how ECA's are

assigned and how to interpret them.

Containment

Open handling should be limited to small quantities. Consider use of enclosures.

Ventilation

Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) should be applied at the source to capture contaminants from open or semi-enclosed operations.

Administrative

Entry to the working area should be controlled.

Personal Protective Equipment

Eye Protection: Wear approved safety glasses with side shields or cover goggles if eye contact is possible.

Gloves:

The selection of gloves for a specific activity must be based on the material's properties and on

possible permeation and degradation that may occur under the circumstances of use. Glove

selection must take into account any solvents and other hazards present. Potential allergic

reactions can occur with certain glove materials (e.g. Latex) and therefore these should be

avoided. Care must be exercised if insufficient data are available and further guidance should be

sought from your local EHS department.

Respirators:

If respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is used, the type of RPE will depend upon air concentrations present, required protection factor as well as

hazards, physical properties andwarning properties of substances present. Follow local regulations for respirator use in the workplace.

An eye wash station should be available.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to Avoid

Avoid direct sunlight, conditions that might generate heat and sources of ignition.

Disposal considerations

Disposal Recommendations

Collect for recycling or recovery if possible. The recommended method of disposal is incineration.

Wherever possible, disposal should be in an on-site licenced chemical incinerator, if allowed by

the incinerator licence or permit.  If no on-site incinerator is available, dispose of material in a

licenced commercial chemical incinerator.

Regulatory Requirements

Observe all local and national regulations when disposing of this material.
