First-aid measures

General advice : Seek medical advice.
If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Inhalation : Move to fresh air.If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations.
Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Skin contact : Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Wash off with soap and water.
Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay.

Eye contact : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contact lenses.

Ingestion : Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim's head to the side.Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If a person vomits when lying on his back, place him in the recovery position.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical
Dry sand
Limestone powderAlcohol-resistant foam

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.
Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing.

Environmental precautions:
Construct a dike to prevent spreading.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Place in appropriate chemical waste container.Call Emergency Response number for advice.
Neutralize with a dilute solution of sodium carbonate.
If possible, stop flow of product.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling :
Use personal protective equipment.
Do not eat, drink or smoke during use.
Overheating of a quaternary amine for prolonged p eriods above 180 F (82.22 C) can cause product to degrade.
Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily accessible.
Adhere to work practice rules established by government regulations.
Use only in well-ventilated areas.
Avoid contact with eyes.
Avoid breathing vapors and/or aerosols.

Hygiene measures : Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.

General protective measures : Discard contaminated leather articles.
Wash hands at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or using the toilet.

Storage Information : Do not store near acids.
Keep away from alkalis.
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls :
Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Provide natural or explosion-proof ventilation adequate to ensure concentrations are kept below exposure limits.

Eye protection : Chemical safety glasses.

Hand protection : Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
butyl-rubber
Nitrile rubber
Neoprene gloves
Polyvinyl Alcohol Gloves (PVA).

Body Protection : Long sleeve shirts and trousers without cuffs.

Respiratory protection : Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability : Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: hygroscopic
Avoid moisture.

Incompatible materials:
Amines
Incompatible with bases.
Reducing agents
Reactive metals (e.g. sodium, calcium, zinc etc.).
Materials reactive with hydroxyl compounds.
Dehydrating Agents.
Organic acids (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.).
Mineral acids.
sodium hypochlorite
Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and galvanized surfaces.
Reaction with peroxides may result in violent decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an expl osion.
Oxidizing agents
Alkalies.
Powdered metals

Hazardous decomposition products :
Nitric acid
Ammonia
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive nitric acid.
Carbon monoxide
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Aldehydes
Flammable hydrocarbon fragments.
Organic acid vapors.
Heating above 65 °C in the presence of strong base can liberate flammable hydrocarbon fragments.
Carbon oxides
Under lean oxygen conditions and temperatures above 180F, hydrochloric acid, amides, and low molecular weight hydrocarbons can be produced.

Disposal considerations

Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with national and local requirements.
Contact supplier if guidance is required.
