First-aid measures

On contact with eyes : Flush with water.
On skin contact : Flush with water. Wipe off. Obtain medical attention.
If inhaled : Remove to fresh air.
On ingestion : Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : On large fires use dry chemical, foam or water spray (fog). On small fires use carbon
dioxide (CO2), dry chemical or water spray. Water can be used to cool fire exposed containers.
Unsuitable extinguishing media : None known.
Hazards during fire fighting : Vapours are heavier than air and can travel along ground to remote ignition sources. Electrostatic charges may be generated during transfer of product from its container. Ensure that all equipment is electrically earthed. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.
Hazardous Combustion Products : Thermal breakdown of this product during fire or very high heat conditions may evolve the following decomposition products: Silica. Carbon oxides and traces of incompletely burned carbon compounds. Formaldehyde.
Special protective equipment/procedures : A self-contained respirator and protective clothing should be worn. Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan. Use water spray to keep fire exposed containers cool.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures : A self-contained respirator and protective clothing should be worn. Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan. Eliminate all possible sources of ignition.
Environmental precautions : Do not empty into drains. Prevent from spreading or entering into drains, ditches or rivers by using sand, earth or other appropriate barriers. Inform local authorities if this cannot be prevented.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up : Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan. Eliminate all possible sources of ignition. Very large spills should be contained by bunding, etc... procedures. Mop, wipe or soak up with absorbent material and place in a container with a lid. The spilled product produces an extremely slippery surface.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling : General ventilation is required. Local ventilation is recommended. Avoid skin and eye contact. Do not breathe vapour. Do not ingest. Do not empty into drains.
Advice on storage : Store in a flameproof, well ventilated area. Electrostatic charges may be generated during transfer of product from its container. Ensure that all equipment is electrically earthed. Keep container tightly closed. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering Controls: General ventilation is required. Local ventilation is recommended. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is required for outdoor loading ( if non Local Exhaust ventillation)

Respiratory protection :Suitable respiratory protection should be worn if the product is used in large quantities, confined spaces or in other circumstances where the OEL may be approached or exceeded. Contact with water or humid air will form methanol. Please take into account any
occupational exposure limits for methanol which are applicable in your country. Respiratory protective equipment (RPE) is required for outdoor loading (if non Local Exhaust ventillation)
Hand protection : Chemical protective gloves or gauntlets should be worn and removed correctly to avoid skin contamination: butyl rubber, fluorinated rubber or PVA (4H) or other appropriate gloves/gauntlets and protective clothing. Regarding glove's breakthroughtime,contact your chemical protective glove supplier.
Eye/face protection : Safety glasses should be worn.
Skin protection : Wear impervious overalls in circumstances where significant skin contact can occur.
Hygiene measures : Exercise good industrial hygiene practice. Wash after handling, especially before eating,
drinking or smoking. Remove contaminated clothing immediately.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity : This product releases methanol.
Stability : Stable under normal usage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions : None known.
Conditions to avoid : Eliminate all possible sources of ignition.
Materials to avoid : Can react with strong oxidising agents.
Hazardous decomposition products : Thermal breakdown of this product during fire or very high heat conditions may evolve
the following decomposition products: Silica. Carbon oxides and traces of incompletely burned carbon compounds. Formaldehyde.

Disposal considerations

This material must be disposed of as hazardous waste. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations. According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific. Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.
