General advice: Move out of dangerous area. Consult a physician.
If inhaled: Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of dust or fumes from overheating or combustion. If symptoms persist, call a physician.
In case of skin contact: Take of contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash off with soap and plenty of water.
In case of eye contact: Flush eyes with water as a precaution. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. A physician should be consulted.
If swallowed: Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Do not give milk or alcoholic beverages. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: Aspiration may cause pulmonary oedema and pneumonitis.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: For specialist advice physicians should contact the Poisons Information service.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Specific hazards during firefighting: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information: Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water seperately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface wter or sanitary sewer system. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the prosuct contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling: Keep away from heat, exposure to moisture, Organic matter or contact with alkalis. Reacts vigorously with Water, strong alkalis and other alkaline Chemicals

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep lights flames, and sparks away from tank opening since inflammable hydrogen gas may be formed upon reaction of SDC with steel in pressure of moisture.

Requirements for storage areas and containers: Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated area away from strong alkalis. Moisture from ambient air should not be allowed to enter the SDC storage tank or vessel.
