First-aid measures

Protection of first-aiders:
First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing (chemical resistant gloves, splash protection). If potential for exposure exists refer to Section 8 of MSDS for specific personal protective equipment. If inhaled: move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician. In case of skin contact: suitable emergency safety shower facility should be available in work area. Wash off with plenty of water. In case of eye contact: immediately flush eyes with water; remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue flushing eyes for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention without delay, preferably from an ophthalmologist. Suitable emergency eye wash facility should be immediately available. If swallowed: do not induce vomiting. Give one cup (8 ounces or 240 ml) of water or milk if available and transport to a medical facility. Do not give anything by mouth unless the person is fully conscious. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Notes to physician
Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient. No specific antidote. Due to irritant properties, swallowing may result in burns/ulceration of mouth, stomach and lower gastrointestinal tract with subsequent stricture. Aspiration of vomitus may cause lung injury. Suggest endotracheal/esophageal control if lavage is done.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water fog or fine spray. Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers. Dry chemical fire extinguishers. Foam.

Specific hazards during firefighting: none known.

Hazardous combustion products: during a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include and are not limited to: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots, and gloves). If protective equipment is not available or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.Further information: soak thoroughly with water to cool and prevent re-ignition. Cool surroundings with water to localize fire zone. If material is molten, do not apply direct waterstream. Use fine water spray or foam. Keep people away. Isolate fire and deny unnecessary entry.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Isolate area. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering the area. Refer to section 7 of MSDS, Handling, for additional precautionary measures. Use appropriate safety equipment. For additional information, refer to Section 8 of MSDS, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.

Environmental precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater. See Section 12 of MSDS, Ecological Information.

Methods for cleaning up: Contain spilled material if possible. Collect in suitable and properly labeled containers. See Section 13 of MSDS, Disposal Considerations, for additional information.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling: Keep container closed. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Good housekeeping and controlling of dusts are necessary for safe handling of product. Avoid generating and breathing dust. Wash thoroughly after handling.
See Section 8 of MSDS, EXPOSURE CONTROLS AND PERSONAL PROTECTION.

Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in original container. Do not store in: Zinc. Galvanized containers. Aluminum. Copper. Copper alloys. Brass.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures:

Local exhaust ventilation may be necessary for some operations. Use local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below exposure limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, general ventilation should be sufficient for most operations.

2. Organisational protection measures: see above.

3. Hand protection

Use gloves chemically resistant to this material when prolonged or frequently repeated contact could occur. Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN374: Protective gloves against chemicals and micro-organisms. Glove thickness alone is not a good indicator of the level of protection a glove provides against a chemical substance as this level of protection is also highly dependent on the specific composition of the material that the glove is fabricated from. The thickness of the glove must, depending on model and type of material, generally be more than 0.35 mm to offer sufficient protection for prolonged and frequent contact with the substance. As an exception to this general rule it is known that multilayer laminate gloves may offer prolonged protection at thicknesses less than 0.35 mm. Other glove materials with a thickness of less than 0.35 mm may offer sufficient protection when only brief contact is expected. When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove is recommended to prevent contact with the solid material. Examples of preferred glove barrier materials include: Neoprene. Polyvinyl chloride ("PVC" or "vinyl"). Nitrile/butadiene rubber ("nitrile" or "NBR"). NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.

4. Feet protection: see below

5. Body protection:

When prolonged or frequently repeated contact could occur, use protective clothing chemically resistant to this material. Selection of specific items such as faceshield, boots, apron, or full-body suit will depend on the task.

6. Eye protection:

Use chemical goggles.
Chemical goggles should be consistent with EN 166 or equivalent.

7. Respiratory protection

Respiratory protection should be worn when there is a potential to exceed the exposure limit requirements or guidelines. If there are no applicable exposure limit requirements or guidelines, wear respiratory protection when adverse effects, such as respiratory irritation or discomfort have been experienced, or where indicated by your risk assessment process.
In dusty or misty atmospheres, use an approved particulate respirator.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Hygroscopic Stable under recommended storage conditions. See Storage, Section 7 of MSDS.

Reactivity: No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

Possibility of hazardous reactions: No information available.

Conditions to avoid: Exposure to elevated temperatures can cause product to decompose. Avoid moisture.

Disposal considerations

Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste. For used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be required. Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
