First-aid measures

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. 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. 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. In case of inhalation of
decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The
exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.
Ingestion: Get medical attention immediately. Wash out mouth with water.
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. 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: Get medical attention immediately. Flush contaminated skin with
plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Wash clothing before
reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
Eye contact: 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. Get medical
attention if irritation occurs.

Handling and storage

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. The substance is rigorously contained during manufacturing and use and appropriate risk management measures including PPE (i.g. during charging or sampling) are applied. Occupational exposure is reduced to a minimum and well controlled by measurements. A management system covering all general aspects of a chemical production is in place, especially cleaning and maintenance of plants and equipment. An authorisation scheme based on instructions covering the whole process ensures that only trained and authorised staff handles the substance.
Precautions for safe handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
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 breathe dust. Do not
ingest. Avoid release to the environment. Use only with adequate
ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. 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. The product is registered with strictly controlled
conditions as defined in Article 17(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no.
1907/2006 (REACH Regulation) and must therefore be handled as
such. Refer to the industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/
EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated
and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct
sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from
incompatible materials and food and drink. Store
locked up. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing
materials. 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.
