First-aid measures

General Information: Pay attention to own protection | Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely | In any case show the physician the Safety Data Sheet | Inhalation : Keep at rest | Move to fresh air | Call a physician immediately | Skin : Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes | Obtain medical attention | Eyes : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes | Call a physician immediately | Ingestion : If swallowed give 1-2 glasses of water to drink immediatly | Call a physician immediately | Notes to physician: Notes to physician | Main symptoms : Vapours may cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory system and the skin | Special hazard: respiratory disorder | Treatment: Treat symptomatically | In case of lung irritation first treatment with dexametason aerosol (spray) | If ingested, irrigate the stomach |

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: foam | Dry chemical | carbon dioxide (CO2) | Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire | Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases: Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of | carbon monoxide | carbon dioxide (CO2) | Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons | Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133) | Environmental precautions: Dike and collect water used to fight fire | Other Information: Cool containers / tanks with water spray |

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes | Keep away from heat and sources of ignition | Provide adequate ventilation | Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage | Do not discharge into the drains/surface waters/groundwater | Methods for cleaning Up: Soak up with inert absorbent material | Do not use rags, paper towels or combustible materials to clean up a spill, because spontaneous combustion can occur | Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal | Dispose of in accordance with local regulations |

Handling and storage

Handling: - | Advice on safe handling: vapors may form explosive mixtures with air | The pressure in sealed containers can increase under the influence of heat | Refill and handle product only in closed system | Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms | Protection - fire and explosion: : Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking | Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors | Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge | Ground and bond containers when transferring material | In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available | Temperature class: T4 | Dust Explosion Group : - | Storage: - | Material storage: The product will oxidize in air and release heat | Oxidization creates acids and peroxides, that may lead to corrosive damages in storage and handling equipment | Technical measures/Storage conditions: Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place | Handle and open container with care | Store under nitrogen | Incompatible products: Keep away from: acids, bases, amines, oxygen, oxidizing agents, reducing agents | German storage class: 3A: Flammable liquids |

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls: | Engineering measures: General or dilution ventilation is frequently insufficient as the sole means of controlling employee exposure. Local ventilation is usually preferred | Explosion-proof equipment (for example fans, switches, and grounded ducts) should be used in mechanical ventilation systems | General advice : Avoid contact with skin and eyes | Do not breathe vapors or spray mist | Use only in an area equipped with a safety shower | Hold eye wash fountain available | Hygiene measures: When using, do not eat, drink or smoke | Take off all contaminated clothing immediately | Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product | Respiratory protection: respirator with A filter | Full mask with above mentioned filter according to producers using requirements or self-contained breathing apparatus | Equipment should conform to EN 136 or EN 140 and EN 143 | Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles | In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to the face | Equipment should conform to EN 166 | skin protection: impervious clothing | Hand protection: Chemicals resistant gloves | Suitable material : butyl-rubber | Type : Butoject (Company KCL) or comparable article; or refer to glove manufacturer's recommendation | Evaluation : according to EN 374: level 4 | Material thickness : approx 0.7 mm | Break through time: approx 120 min | Suitable material: butyl-rubber | Type: Butoject (Company KCL) or comparable article; or refer to glove manufacturer's recommendation | Evaluation : according to EN 374: level 3 | Material thickness : approx 0.3 mm | Break through time: approx 60 min |

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable if protected from heat and exposure to air. | Conditions to avoid: Avoid any source of ignition. | Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge. | Materials to avoid : Keep away from: | oxygen | oxidizing agents | reducing agents | acids | bases | Thermal decomposition : No decomposition if used as directed | Hazardous reactions: May form explosive peroxides | Polymerization can occur | Polymerization is a highly exothermic reaction and may generate sufficient heat to cause thermal decomposition and/or rupture containers | Hazardous decomposition products : - |

Disposal considerations

Product information: Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local statutes and possibilities for disposal. | Uncleaned empty packaging: Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for reuse. |
