First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

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

On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Note to physician:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

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

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.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder).
For large amounts: Pump off product.
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

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:
Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Storage
Segregate from strong oxidizing agents.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Avoid extreme heat. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months
Keep under nitrogen.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
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
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
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.

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).

General safety and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Store work clothing separately.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid:
Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid electro-static discharge. Avoid extreme temperatures.

Hazardous reactions:
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.


Possible thermal decomposition products:
carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide
nitrogen oxides

Disposal considerations

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.


Contaminated packaging:
Uncleaned empties should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
