First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If necessary, seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate immediately with running water for at least 5


Emergency measure - Skin: Wash under running water or in a shower.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Recommended extinguishing agents: Water-spray, dry

chemical, carbon dioxide and foam may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products arising from pyrolysis: Combustion products will

contain carbon oxides.

Protective equipment: Protective equipment: Wear a respirator, avoid smoke


Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Contain spillage. Absorb using sand, earth or similar

absorbent material (mix in vigorously to assist

absorption). Collect with a rubber shovel and transfer to

drums or plastic bags for disposal by incineration. Prevent

from flowing into ground water or surface waters.

Handling and storage

Handling: Do not smoke in the work area. Avoid formation of dry

distillation residues (peroxides are formed). Appropriate

safety precautions should be observed for this highly

flammable substance. Wear protective clothing made of

anti-static material.

Storage: Store in suitable containers in a well ventilated area.

Ensure good ventilation to avoid formation of explosive

vapour/air mixtures. Ensure containers are earthed

(grounded); use only spark-proof systems. Protect from

sunlight, explosive peroxides may be formed.
