If inhaled:
If inhaled, remove to fresh air.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

In case of skin contact:
Wash with water and soap as a precaution.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

In case of eye contact:
Flush eyes with water as a precaution.
Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

If swallowed:
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
None known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment:
Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media :
Water spray
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media : None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting:
Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.
Fire burns more vigorously than would be expected.

Hazardous combustion products:
Carbon oxides
Silicon oxides
Formaldehyde

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary. Use personal protective equipment.

Specific extinguishing methods:
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to do so.
Evacuate area.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
Remove all sources of ignition.
Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment recommendations.

Environmental precautions:
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).
Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.
Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up:
Soak up with inert absorbent material.
For large spills, provide dyking or other appropriate containment to keep material from spreading. If dyked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container.
Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absorbent.
Local or national regulations may apply to releases and disposal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to determine which regulations are applicable.
Sections 13 and 15 of this SDS provide information regarding certain local or national requirements.
Dispose of saturated absorbent or cleaning materials appropriately, since spontaneous heating may occur.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Technical measures:
See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION section.

Local/Total ventilation:
Use only with adequate ventilation.

Advice on safe handling:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice, based on the results of the workplace exposure assessment
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.

Hygiene measures:
Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Keep in properly labelled containers. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.

Advice on common storage :
Do not store with the following product types:
Strong oxidizing agents

Specific end use(s):
These precautions are for room temperature handling. Use at elevated temperature or aerosol/spray applications may require added precautions.
For further information regarding the use of silicones / organic oils in consumer aerosol applications, please refer to the guidance document regarding the use of these type of materials in consumer aerosol applications that has been developed by the silicone industry (www.SEHSC.com)

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Processing may form hazardous compounds (see section 10).
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.

Personal protective equipment
Eye protection:
Wear the following personal protective equipment:
Safety glasses

Hand protection
Remarks: Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Skin and body protection: Skin should be washed after contact.

Respiratory protection: No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
Not classified as a reactivity hazard.

Chemical stability
Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Hazardous reactions :
Can react with strong oxidizing agents.
When heated to temperatures above 150 °C (300 °F) in the presence of air, product can form formaldehyde vapours.
Safe handling conditions may be maintained by keeping vapour concentrations within the occupational exposure limit for formaldehyde.
Hazardous decomposition products will be formed at elevated temperatures.

Conditions to avoid :None known.

Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid : Oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products
Thermal decomposition:Formaldehyde

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product:
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific.
Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.

Contaminated packaging : Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste han-dling site for recycling or disposal.
If not otherwise specified: Dispose of as unused product.
