First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation:
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing,
if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or
oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to
give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects
persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband.

ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Move exposed person to
fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the
exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the
exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should
be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if adverse
health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical
attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband

skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse.
Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse

eye contact: Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact
lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated
promptly by a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.
Not suitable: None known.
Special exposure hazards: No specific fire or explosion hazard.
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if
there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable
training.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Provide adequate ventilation.
Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate
personal protective equipment

Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental
pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Handling and storage

Handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8). Eating, drinking
and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and
processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and
smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Keep in the
original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept
tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be
hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Storage: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from
direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible
materials (see section 10) and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and
sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully
resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers.
Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls: No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to
control worker exposure to airborne contaminants. If this product contains
ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or
other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or
statutory limits.

Hygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before
eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period.
Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and
safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved
standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must
be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and
the safe working limits of the selected respirator.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should
be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates
this is necessary. Recommended: nitrile rubber,.,PVC Breakthrough Time: <1
hours

Eye protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk
assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists
or dusts.

Skin protection: Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task
being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist
before handling this product.

Environmental exposure controls: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure
they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some
cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process
equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: none

Chemical reaction with water: none

Dust explosion: none

Disposal considerations
