First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation:
Inhalation is possible if aerosols, mists, dusts, or smoke form.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
With liposoluble substances, products, or preparations, continue decontamination with polyethylene glycol 400 after initial rinsing with water and then wash with water and soap.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately (key words: burns in eye).

Ingestion:
Rinse mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms:
Irritation of skin and mucous membranes.
Causes burns.
Daze, headache, vertigo, somnolence (sleepiness), nausea.
Aspiration in the lungs might cause a chemical pneumonia.
Aspiration may cause pulmonary oedema and pneumonitis.
Health injuries may be delayed.

Hazards:
Strongly irritating to corrosive.
Harmful by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed.
Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
In case of substances with high water solubility, inhalation of vapors, aerosols, mists, and smoke from caustic substances, products, and preparations, as well as caustic gases, results in irritations up to formation of necrosis in the upper respiratory tract.
The initial focus is on the local action: signs of irritation of the respiratory tract such as coughing, burning behind the sternum, tears, burning in the eyes or nose.
There is a fundamental risk of acute toxic pulmonary edema!
In case of substances with low water solubility, only slight local irritations may appear at first, but after several hours of latency without symptoms, may develop into increasingly labored breathing and cyanosis as a result of a delayed pulmonary edema.
There is a danger of underestimating the severity of the intoxication!

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
- Water
- Dry powder
- Foam
- CO2

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
- Hydrogen chloride
- Chlorine
- Phosgene
- Hydro-cyanic acid
- Nitrous gases

Advice for firefighters:
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Keep out unprotected persons.
In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Pick up mechanically with a suitable material and collect in a suitable container.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance.
Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Use permissible in closed systems only.
Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).
Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks.
Do not ventilate into the open.
Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Storage:
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Further information:
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
In the event of internal transportation, already-opened containers are to be kept closed in order to avoid spillage.

German storage class:
3 - Flammable liquids.
