First-aid measures

SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY IF ANY SYMPTOMS ARISE.
REMOVE IMMEDIATELY ANY CONTAMINATED CLOTHING.
REMOVE SUBJECT FROM ANY EXPOSURE SOURCE.
After inhalation: Remove subject from exposure area to fresh air. Administer oxygen or artificial respiration in severe cases.
After skin contact: Remove all contaminated clothing. Wash exposed area with non abrasive soap and water.
After eye contact: Flush open eyes immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then consult doctor.
After ingestion: If conscious, first try to induce vomiting and then give copious quantities of water. Do not give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical help immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
 Suitable: Dry chemicals, carbon dioxide, sand, foam, steam or water fog.
 Not Suitable: Water jet (may spread fire).

Special hazards caused by the material, its products of combustion or resulting gases:
Incomplete combustion in a fire may result in a release of toxic carbon monoxide.

Protective equipment:
Full-body protective clothing, including breathing apparatus.
Do not inhale combustion gases.

Additional information:
Cool storage containers with water spray jet.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Wear full-body, industrial-type work clothing, including chemical resistant gloves, boots and goggles.
Avoid breathing vapours or contact with skin and eyes. Ventilate the area if the spill occurs indoors.
Keep away from ignition sources.

Environmental precautions:
Keep away from drains, surface- and ground-water and soil.
Inform respective authorities in case of seepage into water course/sewage system.

Cleaning up methods:
Adsorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust), collect mechanically and place in containers for safe disposal. Containers should be sealed and labelled.
Dispose of contaminated material and waste according with local authority and national legislation. Dispose of as Toxic and Hazardous Waste (Directive 78 / 319 / EC).
Ensure adequate ventilation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

TRAIN WORKERS AND USERS IN SAFETY MEASURES
This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates and, in case the substance is transported to other sites for further processing, the substance should be handled at these sites under Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH regulation Article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at each manufacturing site.
Written confirmation of application of Strictly Controlled Conditions has been received from every affected Distributor and Downstream Processor/User of the Registrant’s intermediate.

Additional information about design of technical facilities:
General or local exhaust ventilation may be necessary.

Components with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:
91-20-3 naphthalene, pure
OES: Short term value: 80 mg/m3, 15 ppm
Long term value: 53 mg/m3, 10 ppm
CHAN
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs): TLV is 0.2 mg/m3 (OSHA PEL / ACGIH)

General protective and hygienic measures:
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
Wash hands before breaks and toilet visits.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Do not drink, eat, smoke or sniff while working.
Shower or take a bath at the end of work. Steam baths are recommended.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
Store protective clothing separately.

Respiratory protection:
In case of brief exposure or low pollution use breathing filter apparatus (filter ABEK). In case of intensive or longer exposure use (self-contained) breathing equipment.

Protection of hands:
Impermeable and chemical resistant gloves (heat resistant gloves if molten).
Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.

Material of gloves:
Butyl rubber, BR
Nitrile rubber, NBR
Neoprene

Penetration time of glove material:
The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.
Discard gloves as soon as any signs of degradation are noticed (e.g. swelling).

Eye protection:
Tightly sealed safety glasses or chemical grade goggles.

Body protection:
Wear full-body, industrial-type work clothing.
Do not use contaminated clothing.
