First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If rapid recovery does not occur, transport to nearest medical facility for additional treatment.
Skin Contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Flush exposed area with water and follow by washing with soap if available.
Eye Contact: Immediately flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. Transport to the nearest medical facility for additional treatment.
Ingestion: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting: transport to nearest medical facility for additional treatment. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration.
Advice to Physician: Causes central nervous system depression. Call a doctor or poison center for guidance.

Fire-fighting measures

Clear fire area of all non-emergency personnel.

Specific Hazards: Carbon monoxide may be evolved if incomplete combustion occurs. Will float and can be reignited on surface water. The vapour is heavier than air, spreads along the ground and distant ignition is possible.

Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide or protein based foam. If water has to be used it must only be sprayed in large quantities. Do not discharge extinguishing waters into the aquatic environment.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use water in a jet.

Protective Equipment of Firefighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Additional Advice: Keep adjacent containers cool by spraying with water.

Accidental release measures

Observe all relevant local and international regulations.

Protective measures:
Avoid contact with spilled or released material. Immediately remove all contaminated clothing. Shut off leaks, if possible without personal risks. Remove all possible sources of ignition in the surrounding area. Use appropriate containment (of product and fire fighting water) to avoid environmental contamination. Prevent from spreading or entering drains, ditches or rivers by using sand, earth, or other appropriate barriers. Attempt to disperse the vapour or to direct its flow to a safe location for example by using fog sprays. Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Ensure
electrical continuity by bonding and grounding (earthing) all equipment. Monitor area with combustible gas indicator.

Clean up methods:
For large liquid spills (> 1 drum), transfer by mechanical means such as vacuum truck to a salvage tank for recovery or safe disposal. Do not flush away residues with water. Retain as contaminated waste. Allow residues to evaporate or soak up with an appropriate absorbent material and dispose of safely. Remove contaminated soil and dispose of safely.
For small liquid spills (< 1 drum), transfer by mechanical means to a labelled, sealable container for product recovery or safe disposal. Allow residues to evaporate or soak up with an appropriate absorbent material and dispose of safely. Remove contaminated soil and dispose of safely.

Additional advice:
Notify authorities if any exposure to the general public or the environment occurs or is likely to occur. Vapour may form an explosive mixture with air.

Handling and storage

General Precautions:
Avoid breathing vapours or contact with material. Only use in well ventilated areas. Wash thoroughly after handling. Use the information in this safe use guidance as input to a risk assessment of local circumstances to help determine appropriate controls for safe handling, storage and disposal of this material.

Handling:
Avoid contact with the skin. Electrostatic charges may be generated during pumping. Electrostatic discharge may cause fire. Extinguish any naked flames. Do not smoke. Remove ignition sources. Avoid sparks. Handling Temperature: Ambient. Ensure electrical continuity by bonding and grounding (earthing) all equipment.

Storage:
Keep away from aerosols, flammables, oxidizing agents, corrosives and from products harmful or toxic to man or to the environment. Must be stored in a well-ventilated area, away from sunlight, ignition sources and other sources of heat.
Storage Temperature: Ambient. Test for peroxides at regular intervals and before use. For bulk storage without nitrogen blanketing and opened drums, test every three months.

Product Transfer:
Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not use compressed air for filling, discharging or handling.

Unsuitable Materials:
Container Advice: Containers, even those that have been emptied, can contain explosive vapours. Do not cut, drill, grind, weld or perform
similar operations on or near containers.

Additional Information:
Ensure that all local regulations regarding handling and storage facilities are followed.
