First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest.
If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest
occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel.
It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-tomouth
resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health
effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery
position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air.
Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed
and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of
water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting
may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do
so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be
kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical
attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious,
place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.
Skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if
symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact
lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid
breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on
appropriate personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil,
waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if
the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers,
waterways, soil or air). Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause
long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute
with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container.
Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent
entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent
material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and
place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as
the spilt product.

Handling and storage

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. The substance is rigorously contained during manufacturing and use and appropriate risk management measures including PPE (i.g. during charging or sampling) are applied. Occupational exposure is reduced to a minimum and well controlled by measurements. A management system covering all general aspects of a chemical production is in place, especially cleaning and maintenance of plants and equipment. An authorisation scheme based on instructions covering the whole process ensures that only trained and authorised staff handles the substance.
Precautions for safe handling:
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where
this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should
wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not
breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin
and clothing. Avoid release to the environment. Keep in the original
container or an approved alternative made from a compatible
material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers
retain product residue and can be hazardous.
The product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 17
(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 (REACH Regulation)
and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the industry
guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original
container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated
area, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until
ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully
resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in
unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid
environmental contamination.
