First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes:
In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately for at least 15 minutes with plenty of water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr).
Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect from direct sunlight.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: 25 °C
Storage duration: 24 Months
The product is stabilized, the shelf life should be noted.
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

additives:
potassium hydroxide; caustic potash (CAS Number: 1310-58-3)
Content: 0.1 %

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters

No occupational exposure limits known.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Breathing protection if gases/vapours are formed.

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Store work clothing separately.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
Strong exothermic reaction with acids.



Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Polymerization occurs with acids. The product can polymerize if the shelf life or storage temperature are greatly exceeded. Heat develops during polymerization.


Conditions to avoid
Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid heat.

Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:
boron trifluoride, acids

Hazardous decomposition products

No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

acetaldehyde; ethanal
The substances/groups of substances mentioned may be released upon the reaction with water.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.


Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
