Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Inhalation
- May cause respiratory irritation, and drowsiness or dizziness.
- May be harmful by inhalation (after often repeated exposure).
Skin contact
- May cause skin irritation.
- The product may be absorbed through the skin.
Eye contact
- Contact with eyes may cause irritation.
Ingestion
- Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
- Powder
- Foam
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Water spray

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons
- None.

Special exposure hazards in a fire
- Highly flammable liquid and vapour.
- Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
- Risk of ignition.
- Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.
- Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.
- Full protective flameproof clothing
- Wear chemical resistant oversuit
- Special protective actions for fire-fighters
- In case of fire, use water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.

Other information
- In case of fire, use water spray.
- Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition.
- Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Environmental precautions
- Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
- If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for cleaning up
- Dam up.
- Soak up with inert absorbent material.
- Prevent product from entering drains.
- Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Handling
- Used in closed system
- Use only in well-ventilated areas.
- Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
- Heating can release vapours which can be ignited.
- To avoid ignition of vapours by static electricity discharge, all metal parts of the equipment must be grounded.
- When transferring from one container to another apply earthing measures and use conductive hose material.
- Preferably transfer by pump or gravity.
- Do not use sparking tools.
- Keep away from Incompatible products.

Storage
- Store in original container.
- Keep container closed.
- Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place.
- Keep in a bunded area.
- Keep away from Incompatible products.
- Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking.
- Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations.
- Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.

Packaging material
- Steel drum
- Stainless steel
