First-aid measures

General advice

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible).

If inhaled

Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapours. Consult a physician after significant exposure.

In case of skin contact

Wash off with soap and water.

In case of eye contact

Immediately flush eye(s) with plenty of water.

If swallowed

Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Water spray, Dry powder, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Unsuitable extinguishing media

High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting

Dangerous gases or fumes may occur in case of fire.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters

Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Further information

Standard procedure for chemical fires. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Special precautions

Danger of slipping after spill or leakage. Spilling onto the container's outside will make container slippery.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions

Avoid subsoil penetration.

Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up

Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Use mechanical handling equipment. The material taken up must be disposed of in accordance with regulations. If they get dirty, wash clothes.  If equipment gets dirty, clean using a surfactant solution. Do not allow washing water to get into the environment.  Dispose of it instead via the drains.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling

Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from combustible material. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

No smoking.

Requirements for storage areas and containers

No special storage conditions required. Keep in a well-ventilated place.

Storage class (TRGS 510)       10: Combustible liquids not in Storage Class 3

container material       suitable materials: Stainless steel

7.3 Specific end use(s)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ESPECIALLY FOR USE AS HEAT TRANSFER FLUID:

Advice on safe handling:

Follow advice in the 'Marlotherm® Heat Transfer Fluids' product brochure and in DIN 4754 (heat transfer systems using organic heat transfer fluids).

During the use at elevated temperatures thermal decomposition leads to the formation of low-boiling and high-boiling secondary products.

During removal of low boiling decomposition products with potential highly flammable properties from the system, appropriate risk management measures for flammable liquids have to be applied – especially when they are concentrated and collected. Risk management measurements for flammable liquids are at least: Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Use explosion-proof electrical/ ventilating/ lighting/ equipment. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Keep container tightly closed. Wear protective gloves/ protective clothing/ eye protection/ face protection.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

Spontaneous combustion can occur should the product come into contact with hot fibre glass or mineral fibre insulations (e.g. in case of leackages),

especially when exposed to atmospheric oxygen (e.g. removal of insulation panels).

The use of foam glass as an insulating material can reduce the risk of such spontaneous combustion.

Insulation material soaked with the product must be replaced with new insulation material as soon as possible.

EUROPEAN OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS

no data available

Respiratory protection       No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are

exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing

 apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance

 with EN 141.

Hand protection       The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other., Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

gloves suitable for permanent contact:

Material: Fluorinated rubber

Break through time: >= 480 min

Material thickness: 0.4 mm

Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex

Break through time: >= 480 min

Material thickness: 0.35 mm

gloves suitable for splash protection:

Material: Polyvinylchloride

Break through time: >= 60 min

Material thickness: 0.5 mm

unsuitable gloves

Material: Natural rubber/natural latex, Polychloroprene

Eye protection       Tightly fitting safety goggles

Hygiene measures       General industrial hygiene practice.

Protective measures       Avoid contact with eyes. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

waste code of the European Union: EWC

A waste code in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) may not be assigned to this product since it admits of a classification only when the consumer uses it for some purpose. The waste code must be determined in agreement with the regional waste disposal authority or company.
