Symptoms
None known
Hazards
None known
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
If substance has been swallowed:
Gastric lavage, administration of activated charcoal, acceleration of gastrointestinal passage.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
foam, CO2
Unsuitable extinguishing media
alkali-containing extinguishing media
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.
Closed container may rupture if strongly heated.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
In the case of fire, wear respiratory protective equipment independent of surrounding air and chemical protective suit.
Advice for firefighters
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment.
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.
Leave room immediately.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Alert all persons!
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Do not allow to enter drains (danger of explosion).
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.
Cover over drainage system. Avoid penetration into drainage system or in rooms situated at a lower level because of danger of explosion.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.
Suitable binder: dry sand, diatomaceous earth

Handling and storage

Handling
Precautions for safe handling
If possible, use material transfer/filling, metering and blending plants that are closed.
Ventilators required at emission site.
Handle and open container with care.
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.
Protect from moisture.
Store under lock and key or in a way that only skilled persons have access to it.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Explosion protection equipment required.
Danger of explosion from residual product fumes; therefore avoid spark production through cutting, grinding, or welding work in the area of the container.
When repairs of the production system are to be made (e.g. welding work), the section to be repaired must be essentially free of product.
Storage
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Protect from moisture.
Comply with storage regulations and regulations prohibiting storage of hazardous substances in non-stationary containers in the same room (TRGS 510).

German storage class
3 - Flammable liquids

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Engineering measures
If possible, use material transfer/filling, metering and blending plants that are closed, or provide for local suction devices.
Priority should be given to closed-system units.
in case of leakage: Extraction at the emission source required.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type A) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Use only respiratory protection equipment with CE-symbol including four digit test number.
The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
Hand protection
Glove material for example, Nitrile rubber/Nitrile latex (NBR)
Material thickness 0,35 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (FKM)
Material thickness 0,4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Method Source: GESTIS substance database (hazardous substance information system of commercial professional associations)
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles)
Skin and body protection
When handling larger quantities:
chemical protective suit
protective clothing made from non-flammable fibres, acid-proof
(Solvent-resistant)
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove immediately all contaminated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Cleanse skin with soap, then apply skin salve containing grease.
Protective measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to directive 89/686/EEC and amendments.
If workplace exposure limits are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
Use protective clothing / face shield if necessary.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Stability and reactivity

Possibility of hazardous reactions
decomposition (exothermic) with:
alkalis
acids
iron
formation of: silane (Risk of spontaneous ignition).
hydrogen
Risk of explosion.

Disposal considerations

Product
With respect to local regulations, e.g. taking special safety precautions dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
