First-aid measures

- General Advice: If symptoms persist, call a physician. Show this material safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
- In Case of Eye Contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
- In case of Skin Contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Consult a physician.
- In Case of Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.
- In Case of Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, drink plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Obtain medical attention.
- Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: Causes skin and eye burns. Inhalation of vapors is irritating to the respiratory system, may cause throat pain and cough. If ingested, severe burns of the mouth and throat, as well as a danger of perforation of the esophagus and the stomach. May be fatal if swallowed.
- Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: Consult a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable Extinguishing Media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray, dry chemical, Alcohol-resistant foam.
- Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: High volume water jet
- Specific hazards: Flammable. Vapors may form explosive mixture with air. Vapors are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Flash back possible over considerable distance. Heating or fire can release toxic gas: Carbon monoxide, Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Ammonia.
- Specific methods: In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
- Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Environmental precautions: Should not be released into the environment. Remove immediately adhering matter. Prevent product from entering drains. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
- Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Use explosion-proof equipment. Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container. Large spills should be collected mechanically (remove by pumping) for disposal. Neutralize with hydrochloric or sulfuric acids.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Wear personal protective equipment. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Avoid breathing vapors or mists.
- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: In accordance with local and national regulations. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Engineering Controls: Local exhaust ventilation (LEV).
- Eye/face Protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles. Face-shield. Respirator with a full face mask.
- Skin Protection: Wear suitable protective equipment. Complete suit protecting against chemicals.
- Hand Protection: Neoprene gloves, solvent-resistant gloves (butyl-rubber). The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/689/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. The suitability for a specific workplace should be discussed with the producers of the protective gloves.
- Respiratory Protection: In the case of vapor formation use a respirator with filter model K. In case of higher concentrations use a self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133).
- Environmental exposure controls: Prevent product from entering drains. Do not contaminate surface water. Avoid subsoil penetration.

Stability and reactivity

- Chemical Stability: Hazardous polymerisation does not occur.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: None under normal processing.
- Conditions to Avoid: Heat, flames and sparks. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapors). Handle under nitrogen, protect from moisture.
- Incompatible materials to avoid: Zinc, Copper, Aluminum, Strong acids and oxidizing agents, Halogenated hydrocarbons.
- Hazardous Decomposition Products: Heating or fire can release toxic gas (Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon monoxide, Ammonia).

Disposal considerations

- Waste Disposal Method: Should not be released into the environment. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
- Contaminated Packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
