First-aid measures

INHALATION: If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. Get immediate medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes, or use a waterless handcleaner, whilst removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get immediate medical attention, if needed.
EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical attention.
INGESTION: DO NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to help prevent aspiration. Do not give anything by mouth to unconscious or convulsive person. Get medical attention, if needed.

Fire-fighting measures

FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Dust/air mixtures may ignite or explode. During fire conditions, vapours and decomposition products may be released, forming flammable/explosive mixtures in air.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: regular dry powder, regular foam, carbon dioxide, water mist.
FIRE FIGHTING: Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Cool containers with water spray until well after the fire is out. Do not use water jets. Directly spraying water or foam onto hot burning product may cause frothing. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by-products. Stay upwind and keep out of low areas. Treat contaminated water prior to discharge.
FIRE FIGHTING PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Full fire fighting apparel.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS:
Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons

Accidental release measures

OCCUPATIONAL RELEASE:
Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Keep out of water supplies and drains. Contact authorities in the event of pollution of soil and aquatic environment or discharge into drains. Remove contaminated soil. See Section 8 for personal protection information.

Handling and storage

STORAGE: Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Label all containers. Keep separated from incompatible substances.
HANDLING: Use only with adequate ventilation. Use methods to minimise dust. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water, or a waterless handcleaner, after skin contact and before eating, drinking, using tobacco products, or toilets.

Exposure controls / personal protection

EXPOSURE LIMITS:
Naphthalene:
50 mg/m3 (10 ml/m3) EC OEL
50 mg/m3 (10 ml/m3) AGS TRK peak (effective 1 Jan 2005 no longer valid per amendment)
DFG MAK (cutaneous absorption danger)
10 ppm (50 mg/m3) DANMARK
VENTILATION: Ensure adequate ventilation. If ventilation cannot reduce airborne concentrations below acceptable limits, appropriate respiratory protection should be used. Ventilation equipment should be explosionresistant if explosive concentrations of material are present. Ensure compliance with applicable exposure limits.
EYE PROTECTION: Wear appropriate splash resistant eye protection if contact is possible. Provide eye wash bottles in the immediate work area.
CLOTHING: Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. Contaminated clothing should be removed and laundered before reuse.
GLOVES: Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves.
PROTECTIVE MATERIAL TYPES: polyethylene/ethylene vinyl alcohol laminate.
RESPIRATOR: Individuals at risk to inhalation of dust and vapours must use a respirator which conforms to EN140, with Type A2-P2 filter.

Stability and reactivity

REACTIVITY: Stable at standard temperatures and pressure.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Avoid contact with incompatible materials.
INCOMPATIBILITIES: oxidising materials
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION:
Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons.
POLYMERISATION: Will not polymerise.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations. Carcinogenic waste products should be clearly labelled and stored securely until such time as they are removed by a competent specialist contractor, or are disposed of safely on site by incineration or in another way that does not accentuate the risk to other workers or outside environment. EWC-code: 050699 (waste from pyrolysis of coal, other non-specified waste)
