First-aid measures

4.1. 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. If breathing difficulties develop, aid in breathing and seek immediate medical attention.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes:
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.


4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see section 2) and/or in section 11., Further symptoms are possible


4.3. 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

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, nitrous gases
Under certain conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.

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

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Avoid contact with the substance.

6.2. Environmental precautions

Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Dispose of in compliance with the environmental protection requirements.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder).
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr).
Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Product should be worked up in closed equipment as far as possible.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.

Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits


872-50-4: N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone
Skin Designation (WEL/EH 40 (UK))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
STEL value 80 mg/m3 ; 20 ppm (WEL/EH 40 (UK))
TWA value 40 mg/m3 ; 10 ppm (WEL/EH 40 (UK))
Skin Designation (OEL (EU))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
STEL value 80 mg/m3 ; 20 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative
TWA value 40 mg/m3 ; 10 ppm (OEL (EU))

PNEC
freshwater: 0.25 mg/l

marine water: 0.025 mg/l

intermittent release: 5 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0.805 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0.0805 mg/kg

soil: 0.138 mg/kg

STP: 10 mg/l

oral (secondary poisoning): 1.67 mg/kg


DNEL

Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 19.8 mg/kg

worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 40 mg/m3


8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection required in case of exceeding the occupational exposure limit: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A) Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Combination filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2) Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

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
Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame 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).

Under no circumstances should the product come into contact with the skin of pregnant women or be inhaled by them. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks).
