First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove person to fresh air. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush with large volumes of water for at least 15 minutes.
Do not remove contact lenses if worn. Obtain medical
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with soap and
water. If irritation develops obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Alcohol-type or all purpose foam extinguishers should be
used for large fires. Water spray, carbon dioxide or dry
chemical media extinguishers may be used on small fires.
Solid water stream or foam should not be directed into hot
burning pools of the product; this leads to frothing and an
increase in fire intensity. Burning materials may produce a
floating fire hazard.

Product arising from burning: Combustion yields water and carbon dioxide. Incomplete
combustion may yield carbon dioxide and other organic

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Self contained breathing apparatus and fire resistant
clothing should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear eye and skin protection. Spills may cause a slip
hazard and should be contained with inert materials (sand,
earth) to avoid discharge into water (rivers, streams, water
collection areas). Liquid and solid diking material should
be transferred to suitable containers for disposal. Water
should not be used to flush away spills to avoid gelling and

Handling and storage

Handling: Mechanical room ventilation should be used for general area
control. Workers should wear PVC coated protective gloves
and monogoggles at all times

Storage: May be stored long-term in original high density
polyethylene factory packed drums at or below 50 °C, with
the exclusion of water and the headspace of the containers
filled with Nitrogen. The same conditions apply to
stainless steel containers which may be used to store larger
quantities. Slow oxidative degradation of the product
occurs on storage in air, and agitiation and heat accelerate
this decomposition.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 55 gallon (208 l) open head steel drums. Stainless steel is
recommended for bulk shipments.

55 gallon (208 l ) high density polyethylene (HDPE) drums.
HDPE drums are used for quality purposes for the surfactant
used in metal cleaning.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Prolonged, excessive heat may cause product decomposition.
Avoid exposure to strong bases at high temperature, strong
oxidising agents and materials that react with hydroxyl

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: Not applicable as test substance is a liquid

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is intended to be chemically cleaved by
treatment with acid as part of its intended function so
recycling or recovery of the used substance is not feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: [Code 631]

Adjustment of pH < 5 by acid treatment chemically cleaves
the substance

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended for the untreated substance. Discharge is
only suitable once the substance has been treated with acid
to pH < 5

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: [Code 660]

The substance may be incinerated without any prior treatment

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should only be allowed to enter the water
system after treatment with acid to pH < 5

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not be available to the public at large
