First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General information: Move victim to fresh air, put at rest and loosen restrictive clothing. Keep victim warm. If victim is at risk of losing consciousness, position and transport on their side. Call a physician immediately.

After inhalation: Move victim to fresh air, put at rest and loosen restrictive clothing. If breathing becomes irregular or ceases, apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or artificial respiration immediately, where required supply oxygen. Immediately get medical attention.

In case of skin contact: Immediately remove any wetted clothing, shoes or stockings. After contact with skin, wash immediately with soap and plenty of water. Then cream your skin. In case of skin irritation, consult a physician.

After eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of flowing water for 10 to 15 minutes holding eyelids apart. Subsequently seek the immediate attention of an ophthalmologist.

After swallowing: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting: seek medical advice immediately and show this container or label. Give activated carbon, in order to reduce the resorption in the gastro-enteric tract.

After inhalation: For the development of any overt signs of toxicity in humans, accidental exposures to extremely large amounts of hydroxyacetone by ingestion of liquid are necessary.

In case of ingestion: Gastric and intestinal problems.

After contact with skin: No indication for sensitising properties in humans.

After eye contact: not Irritant.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Combat acidosis. Monitor alkali reserves. Monitor breathing. If breathing becomes irregular or ceases, apply mouth-to-mouth resuscitation or artificial respiration immediately, where required supply oxygen.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Extinguishing powder, alcohol resistant foam, carbon dioxide, water fog.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Full water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Flammable. Explosive mixtures with air may even form at room or elevated temperature. Beware of reignition. In case of fire may be liberated: Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical protective clothing.

Additional information:
Do not expose to high temperature. Danger of bursting and explosion. Use fine water spray to cool endangered containers. Move undamaged containers from immediate hazard area if it can be done safely. Do not allow fire water to penetrate into surface or ground water. Fire residuals and contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations of the local authorities.

Fire class: B
Flash point 56 °C.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Remove persons not involved upwind. Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical protective clothing. Solvent-resistant protective clothing recommended.

Environmental precautions
Plug leak if safely possible. Do not allow to enter drains, surface waters, basements or pits. When released into the environment, alert police and fire brigade. Seal all low level rooms.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
In case of spills of large quantities: Dam spills and pump to remove. Absorb leftover product with non-flammable liquid-binding material (e.g. earth, sand, vermiculite or ground sand stone) and place in closed containers for disposal. Flowing water: Dilution occurs quickly. In case of large spills/leaks inform appropriate local, state, and federal spill reporting authorities. Standing water: Seal off. Remove all sources of ignition.

Additional information: Remove all sources of ignition. Cover drainage holes and evacuate basement. Dilute with plenty of water.

Liquid: Flammable.
Vapours: Flammable.


Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advices on safe handling: Provide adequate ventilation, and local exhaust as needed. Provide room air exhaust at ground level. Concentrated vapours are heavier than air. Avoid the formation of aerosol. Do not breathe vapours. Use only explosion-protected equipment/instruments. Do not use air pressure.

Precautions against fire and explosion: Exposure to temperatures exceeding 50 °C will increase pressure: resulting in danger of bursting or explosion. Keep away from sources of ignition. - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Beware of reignition. Potentially explosive mixture may form within partially empty containers. Emergency cooling must be provided for in case of a fire in the vicinity. Do not weld.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storerooms and containers: Keep container dry. Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect from direct sunlight.
Steel, stainless steel, and aluminium are stable container materials. Copper may be attacked.
Unsuitable container/equipment material: May attack plastics.

Hints on joint storage: Do not store together with combustible or self-igniting materials or any highly flammable solids. Peroxide may form when product is exposed to light and air.

Further details: Potentially explosive mixture may form within partially empty containers.
For outdoor storage: Use only equipment approved for use in 1 zone.
For indoor storage: Use only equipment approved for use in 2 zone.
Storage class: 3 Flammable liquids

Exposure controls / personal protection

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.
Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device. Filter A/P2

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the substance. Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation. The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

Stability and reactivity

No decomposition if used according to specifications. Do not store together with oxidizers or strong acids.

Disposal considerations

Do not spill. Must not be disposed together with household garbage. Do not allow product to reach sewage system. Dispose properly acoring national regulation.
