First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothes, undergarments and shoes immediately. First aid personnel should pay
attention to their own safety.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Areas affected by molten material should be quickly placed under cold running water. After contact
with skin, wash immediately with plenty of propylene glycol.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Note to physician:
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, dry powder
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.
Cool endangered containers with water-spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Allow to solidify and sweep/shovel up.
For large amounts: Allow to solidify and sweep/shovel up.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Wear suitable protective clothing and eye/face
protection.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Combination filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2)
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) 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), butyl rubber (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.
Use additional heat protection gloves when handling hot molten masses (EN 407), e.g. of textile or
leather.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of
dust).
General safety and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended.
Avoid inhalation of vapour. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Handle in accordance with
good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
