First-aid measures

In case of eye contact: Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush eyes with runningclean water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Obtain emergency medical attention (e.g. contact ophthalmologist) if pain, blinking, tears or redness persist.

In case of ingestion: Immediately give plenty (> 500 ml) of water (if possible charcoal slurry). In case of spontaneous vomiting be sure that vomitus can freely drain due of danger of suffocation. Give water repeatedly. Do not induce vomiting/risk of damage to lungs exceeds poisoning risk. Give nothing by mouth in cases of unconsciousness or convulsion. Get medical attention immediately and show the container or label.

In case of body contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.

Self-protection of the first-aiders: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Notes to physician: No specific treatment. Treat symptomatically.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: No specific information.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: No specific information.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:       Carbon dioxide (CO2), dry powder, foam

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reason: High volume water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Contaminated fire water from fire hoses, sprinkler systems, etc., not enter to water, sewer or into ground water in the flush. To ensure adequate facility for fire water retention. Disposal of contaminated water and soil according to local regulations.

Advice for fire-fighters: Wear full protective clothing. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Hazard decomposition products: Burning may produce toxic combustion products: Carbon oxides, Nitrogen oxides.

Other information: Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Fight fire from safe distance/protected location. Apply aqueous extinguishing media carefully to prevent frothing/steam explosion. Use water spray for cooling. Avoid contact with molten product to prevent serious burns. Avoid raising powdered materials into airborne dust, creating an explosion hazard. Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater. Contaminated water from fire hoses or sprinkler etc must be prevented from draining into watercourses, sewers or the ground water. Sufficient measures must be taken to retain water used for extinguishing. Contaminated water and soil must be disposed of in conformity with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Remove all sources of ignition. Ventilate area of leak or spill. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spit material. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Avoid inhalation of mist or vapour. Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged skin contact. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8).

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up Spills/Leaks: Remove unnecessary people. Pick up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth etc.). Place into approved waste containers. Wear suitable protective equipment. Should not be released into the environment. Collect the spilled product into suitable containers which must be tightly sealed and properly labelled.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

As a general rule, not to eat, drink and smoke in work areas ; to wash hands after use and; to remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.Handling requirement:Substance may cause long lasting harmful effects to aquatic life. Handle and open container with care. In accordance with good industrial practice and avoid unnecessary personal contact. Avoid eye, skin and clothing contact. Do not inhale. Do not taste or swallow. Avoid vapour or mist formation. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep away from ignition sources. Handle according to industrial hygiene principles and relevant legal provisions.Protection against fire and explosion:No physical hazard determined at this time. Handle this substance in liquid form with care and follow standard industrial practices.Condition and materials to avoid:Direct sunlight, excessive light, moisture, oxidizing conditions, excessively high temperatures, sparks and open flame, dusting conditions.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:       Keep container tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place against strong oxidizers when not in use and during transport, prevent contamination with foreign materials. Keep chemical away from direct sunlight, heat, sparks, open flame and other ignition sources. Keep away from food and drink. Store in the original container securely closed. Protect from moisture and physical damage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters

No occupational exposure limits known.

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for

gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,

corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):

e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove

manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.

temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice

may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work

clothing is recommended.
