First-aid measures

General advice: Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.
Inhalation: Move to fresh air.
Skin contact: Wash off with plenty of water.
Eye contact: Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.
Ingestion: Drink plenty of water. Do NOT induce vomiting. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Alcohol-resistant foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder
Extinguishing media which shall jet not be used for safety reasons: High volume water
Further information: Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system.
Methods for cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Handling and storage

HANDLING
Safe handling advice Ensure adequate ventilation. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. Do not allow to enter drains (danger of explosion). Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
STORAGE
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep container tightly closed. Store between 5 and 25 °C in a dry, well ventilated place away from surces of heat, ignition and direct sunlight.
Storage classification (VCI system/Germany): 3; Flammable Liquids
container material suitable materials: stainless steel

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Respiratory protection: No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance with EN 141.
Hand protection: The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other., Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).
gloves suitable for permanent contact: Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex
Break through time: >= 480 min
Material thickness: 0.35 mm
Material: butyl-rubber
Break through time: >= 480 min
Material thickness: 0.5 mm
gloves suitable for splash protection: Material: Polychloroprene
Break through time: >= 240 min
Material thickness: 0.5 mm
unsuitable glove: Material: Natural rubber/natural latex, Polyvinylchloride
Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles
Hygiene measures: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Protective measures: Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist.

Stability and reactivity

Thermal decomposition: No decomposition if used as directed.
Hazardous reactions: Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Disposal considerations

Product: Following pre-treatment and observing the regulations for hazardous wastes, it must be taken to a permitted hazardous wastes landfill or hazardous wastes incinerator.
Contaminated packaging: Can be used after re-conditioning.
waste code of the European Union: EWC: A waste code in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) may not be assigned to this product since it admits of a classification only when the consumer uses it for some purpose.
