First-aid measures

General advice : Immediate medical attention is required. Move out of dangerous area.
Inhalation : If breathed in, move person into fresh air. Consult a physician after significant exposure.
Skin contact : Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Immediate medical treatment is necessary as untreated wounds from corrosion of the skin heal slowly and with difficulty. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.
Eye contact : Rinse with plenty of water. Get medical attention immediately. Continue to rinse during transport. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tissue damage and blindness.
Ingestion : Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Take victim im mediately to hospital. Do not induce vomiting! May cause chemical burns in mouth and throat.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Dry chemical Alcohol-resistant foam
Specific hazards during fire fighting: Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced fire fighter Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information : Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
For safety reasons in case of fire, cans should be stored
separately in closed containments.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions :Use personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions : Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for cleaning up : Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling : Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Persons with a history of skin sensitisation problems or asthma, allergies, chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this mixture is being used. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion : Avoid formation of aerosol. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
Requirements for storage areas and containers: No smoking. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Reacts with copper, aluminium, zinc and their alloys.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering Controls:
Effective exhaust ventilation system. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection : In the case of vapour formation use a respirator with an approved filter. Wear full face mask supplied with: Gas cartridge K (ammonia, green).
Hand protection : Glove material: butyl-rubber
Eye protection : Tightly fitting safety goggles Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.
Skin and body protection : Protective suit. Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.
Hygiene measures : Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid : Heat, flames and sparks.
Materials to avoid : Strong acids and oxidizing agents. Halogenated compounds. Reacts with copper, aluminium, zinc and their alloys.
Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products are known.
Thermal decomposition : Heating can release hazardous gases., nitrogen oxides (NOx)
