First-aid measures

General indications: if you feel unwell, get medical advice. Show this safety data sheet.
Contact with the eyes: rinse cautiously with water for several minutes, holding the eyelids open. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists, get medical advice.
Contact with the skin: take off all contaminated clothing. Wash with plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, get medical advice. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse.
Inhalation: remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If experiencing respiratory symptoms, give oxygen and get medical advice. In the absence of breathing, provide artificial respiration.
Ingestion: rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Do not induce vomiting. Get medical advice.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: no specific symptom or effect known.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: basic first aid, decontamination and symptomatic treatment

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: use extinguishing media appropriate to the source of the fire and the surrounding area (foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.). No extinguishing media is specifically not recommended.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: the substance is not flammable. In case of fire, carbon oxides and other pyrolysis products may evolve.

Advice for firefighters: evacuate and isolate the area until complete fire extinction, by limiting access only to trained personnel. Firefighters must always wear appropriate protective equipment (helmet, boots, fireproof gloves and positive pressure self contained breathing apparatus with facial protective screen) [ref. EN 469]. Prevent the contaminated extinguishing water from flowing into drains or waterways.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment, and procedures in case of emergency: evacuate and isolate the area until complete dispersion of the substance, by limiting access only to trained personnel. Avoid generation of dust. Avoid breathing dust/mist/vapours and contact with eyes and skin. Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions: prevent the substance from leaking into the environment and run off into drains, surface waters and groundwater. Alert competent authorities if large amounts into drains or watercourses.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: cover the drains. Collect the spillage through mechanical means or vacuum cleaners. Transfer into a suitable container properly labeled. Dispose of contents/container at hazardous or special waste collection point, in accordance with local/ national regulation. Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: provide adequate training to workers on safe handling of the substance and on first aid procedures. The work place and work methods shall be organized in such a way that direct contact with the substance is prevented or minimized. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices. Do not eat, drink, or smoke during use. Wash hands and other exposed areas after use. Wash periodically clothes and personal protective equipment to remove contaminants. Avoid generation of dust. Avoid breathing dust/mist/vapours and contact with eyes and skin. Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: store in a cool, dry and well ventilated place. Keep only in the original container, tightly closed and properly labeled. Avoid exposure to moisture and direct sunlight. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. Keep away from incompatible materials.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters: not defined.
Exposure controls: wear personal protective equipment in accordance with standards set by specific legislation. Consult the supplier in all cases before making a final decision.
Skin protection: wear protective clothing impervious to chemicals and safety footwear for professional use.
Hand protection: wear work gloves impervious to chemicals made of nitrile rubber (thickness = 0.11 mm ; permeation time > 480 minutes) or equivalent [ref. EN 374]. Replace gloves immediately in case of contamination or breakage.
Eye protection: wear appropriate safety glasses with side shields [ref. EN 166].
Respiratory protection: for low exposure levels, wear a dust mask with a type 1 filter [ref. EN 143]. For higher exposure levels, wear a cartridge respirator with a type ABEK-P2 filter [ref. EN 14387 / EN 143]. A final decision on respiratory protection must be taken in all cases on the basis of known or anticipated exposure levels, of the substance hazards and of the safe working limits of the selected device.
Technical and hygienic measures: provide local exhaust ventilation suction or other devices to maintain the levels of particles in the air below the recommended exposure limits. Ensure monitoring of emissions in the air and in the environment. Provide the installation of eyewash fountains and emergency showers in the vicinity of the handling of the substance. Do not eat, drink, or smoke during use. Wash hands and other exposed areas after use. Wash periodically clothes and personal protective equipment to remove contaminants. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: no particular danger of reaction with other materials under recommended conditions of use.
Chemical stability: stable under recommended use and storage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: the substance could react violently with bases, oxidizing agents and reducing agents.
Conditions to avoid: avoid exposure to moisture and direct sunlight. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. Keep away from incompatible materials.
Incompatible materials: bases, oxidizing agents and reducing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: in case of thermal decomposition, carbon oxides may evolve.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods: the substance must be handled as hazardous waste. Disposal must be performed in accordance with local/national regulation. These provisions are also applicable to the contaminated packaging. It is therefore advisable to contact the authorities or specialized treatment companies that can give indications on how to dispose. The assignment of an appropriate EWC code is a specific responsability of the waste producer.
