First-aid measures

General advice

When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical

attention immediately. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

Eye Contact:

Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Keep eye wide open while rinsing.

Immediate medical attention is required. Do no rub affected area.

Skin contact:

Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. In the case of skin irritation or

allergic reactions contact a doctor. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Discard contaminated shoes.

Ingestion

If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Keep

victim warm and quiet. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If material has been swallowed and the

exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be

dangerous. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a

physician. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration. Maintain an open airway. If not breathing,

give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician immediately.

Inhalation:

Remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician. Keep victim

warm and quiet. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Maintain an open airway. Persons who have inhaled

vapours or smoke fumes have to be put under medical observation for at least 48 hours, due to the delayed appearance of

poisoning.

Protection of first-aiders

Wear personal protective equipment. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to

protect themselves.

Notes to physician

Treat symptomatically. Persons who have inhaled vapours or smoke fumes have to be put under medical observation for at least

48 hours, due to the delayed appearance of poisoning.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water spray, Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO 2).

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Fire will produce dense black acrid smoke. Thermal decomposition can lead to release of toxic and corrosive gases/vapours.

Decomposition products: Carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides. Very toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects. Runoff may pollute

waterways.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and structural firefighters’ protective clothing willprovide adequate protection.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. Try to prevent the material fromentering drains or water courses. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow entering drains or surface

water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Advice for non-emergency personnel: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Do not touch or walk throug spilled material. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wear personal protective equipment.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless

wearing appropriate protective clothing. Stop leak if you can do it without risk.

Advice for emergency responders: Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth,

vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local/national regulations (see Section 13). Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8 of the SDS.

Environmental Precautions:

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Clean up spill immediately. Prevent product and washings from entering drains,

sewers or surface water due to high toxicity to aquatic organisms. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot

be contained.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Methods for Containment: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Dike to collect large liquid spills. Contain and collect spillage with

non-combustible absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local/national regulations (see Section 13 of the SDS).

Methods for cleaning up: Take up with sand or other noncombustable absorbent material and place into containers for later disposal. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly. Prevent product and washings from entering drains, sewers or surface water due to high toxicity to aquatic

organisms.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling

Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Handle product only in closed system or provide

appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wear

personal protective equipment. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. See also section 8. Consider

technical advances and process upgrades (including automation) for the elimination of releases. Minimise exposure using

measures such as closed systems, dedicated facilities and suitable general/local exhaust ventilation. Drain down systems and

clear transfer lines prior to breaking containment. Clean/flush equipment, where possible, prior to maintenance. Where there is

potential for exposure: restrict access to authorised persons; provide specific activity training to operators to minimise exposures;

wear suitable gloves and coveralls to prevent skin contamination; wear respiratory protection when its use is identified for certain

contributing scenarios; clear up spills immediately and dispose of wastes safely. Ensure safe systems of work or equivalent

arrangements are in place to manage risks. Regularly inspect, test and maintain all control measures. Consider the need for

risk-based health surveillance.

Advices on general occupational hygiene

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close

to the workstation location. Use personal protection recommended in Section 8. It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize

skin contact. Do no eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Remove

and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Technical measures/Storage conditions

Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from direct sunlight. Keep away from contact with

oxidizing materials. Keep in properly labelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Store in accordance with local

regulations.

Packaging material

Recommended: Store in original container.
