Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
To clean the floor and all objects contaminated by this material, use plenty of water. 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.

6.4. Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Product tends to form lumps. Avoid raising dust.

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Suitable materials for containers: Low density polyethylene (LDPE), glass, High density polyethylene (HDPE)
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.

Storage class according to TRGS 510 (originally VCI, Germany): (11) Combustible solids

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: < 40 °C
Storage duration: 12 Months
Tends to cake.
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits

No occupational exposure limits known.

PNEC
freshwater: 0,119 mg/l

marine water: 0,0119 mg/l

intermittent release: 1,19 mg/l

STP: 10000 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0,476 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0,0476 mg/kg

soil: 0,886 mg/kg

oral (secondary poisoning):
No PNEC oral derived, as accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.


DNEL
worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 1,1 mg/m3

worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 3,08 mg/kg

consumer:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 0,27 mg/m3

consumer:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 1,54 mg/kg

consumer:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, oral: 0,15 mg/kg


8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if breathable aerosols/dust are formed. Particle filter with low efficiency for solid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P1or FFP1)

Hand protection:
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
natural rubber/natural latex (NR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness

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
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks). Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Store work clothing separately.
