First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

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:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire-Fighting Measures
Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Risk of bursting. Burning produces harmful and toxic fumes.

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:
Containers/tanks should be cooled with water spray. Risk of bursting. In case of combustion evolution of dangerous gases possible. Combustion vapors of organic materials are basicly classified as inhalation toxic substances. Vapours are heavier than air and may accumulate in low areas and travel a considerable distance up to the source of ignition. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

Accidental Release Measures
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Keep people away and stay on the upwind side.

Environmental precautions
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth etc.). Do not use saw-dust or other combustible substances as an absorbant during cleanup.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling and Storage
Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. It is recommended that all conductive parts of the machinery are grounded. Use explosion-proof apparatus and fittings.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from alkalies and alkalizing substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point <65 °C, f.e. EN 14387 Type AX)

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):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
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.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

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)., chemical-protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605), chemical protection overall (f.e. according to EN 13982) if dust is formed.

General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid inhalation of vapour. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothes is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.
