First-aid measures

General Advice:
Remove to fresh air immediately. Get medical attention immediately. Show this material safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.
Eye Contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
Skin Contact:
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. If skin irritation persists, call a physician. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use
Inhalation:
Remove from exposure, lie down. Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If symptoms persist, call a physician
Ingestion:
rinse mouth. Clean mouth with water and afterwards drink plenty of water. Obtain medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie, belt and waistband

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
• Causes eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation
• Vapors may cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory system and the skin
• May cause skin irritation and/or dermatitis
• Provokes tears
• Dermal absorption possible
• Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
No further relevant information available

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media:
• carbon dioxide (CO2)
• water spray
• dry chemical
• Alcohol-resistant foam

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
• high volume water jet

Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical:
Specific hazards:
• Vapors are heavier than air and may spread along floors
• Vapors may form explosive mixture with air
• Heating or fire can release toxic gas (Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon monoxide)

Specific methods
• Cool containers / tanks with water spray
• Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition
• Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system
• Prevent product from entering drains
• Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains

Protective Equipment and Precautions for Firefighters:
Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
• Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing
• Evacuate personnel to safe areas
• Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak
• Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit
• Rubber gloves

Environmental precautions:
• Should not be released into the environment
• Remove immediately adhering matter
• Prevent product from entering drains
• Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
• Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit
• Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container
• Remove all sources of ignition

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
• Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapours)
• Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation
• Wear personal protective equipment
• Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product
• Wash hands after handling
• Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas
• Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location
• Avoid breathing vapors or mists

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
• In accordance with local and national regulations
• Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition
• Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place
• Keep at temperatures above 25°C
• hygroscopic

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters: Exposure Guidelines
Exposure controls:
Engineering Controls:
• Local exhaust

Personal Protective Equipment:
• Eye/face Protection
• Tightly fitting safety goggles
• Face-shield
• Respirator with a full face mask
Skin Protection:
• Wear suitable protective equipment
• Complete suit protecting against chemicals
Hand Protection:
• Neoprene gloves
• Solvent-resistant gloves (butyl-rubber)
• The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/689/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it
• The suitability for a specific workplace should be discussed with the producers of the protective gloves
Respiratory Protection:
• In the case of vapor formation use a respirator with filter model A
• self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133) (in case of higher concentration)

Environmental exposure controls
• Prevent product from entering drains
• Do not contaminate surface water
• Avoid subsoil penetration

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity - Chemical Stability:
• Stable under normal conditions
• Hazardous polymerisation does not occur
• hygroscopic

Possibility of hazardous reactions: None under normal processing

Conditions to Avoid:
• Heat, flames and sparks
• Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapors)

Incompatible materials to avoid:
• Strong acids and oxidizing agents
• Strong bases

Hazardous Decomposition Products:
• Heating or fire can release toxic gas (Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon monoxide)

Disposal considerations

Waste Disposal Method:
• Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local regulation
Contaminated Packaging:
• Empty containers should be taken for local recycling, recovery or waste disposal
