First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move person into fresh air. Unconscious: maintain adequate airway and respiration. Consult a doctor/medical service if breathing problems develop.
Skin contact: Rinse with water. Soap may be used. Remove contaminated clothes before washing. Consult a doctor/medical service if irritation persists.
Eye contact: First rinse with plenty of water (remove lenses if possible).If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice / attention.
Ingestion: Never give water to an unconscious person. Do not induce vomiting. Consult a doctor/medical service if you feel unwell.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol-resistant foam, BC powder, carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media: water may be ineffective. Water may spread fire/ Solid water jet ineffective as extinguishing medium

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
- High gas/vapour concentration: compressed air/oxygen apparatus
- Gas mask with filter type AX
- Gloves (natural rubber, viton)
- Protective goggles
- Head/skin protection
- Heatproof clothing (butyl rubber, viton)

Environmental precautions:
- Prevent spreading in sewers
- Contain released substance, pump over in suitable containers
- Plug the lead, cut off the supply
- Dam up the spill liquid
- Try to reduce evaporation

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
- Advice on spillage containment:
- Damage/cooled tanks must be emptied
- Do not use compressed air for pumping over spills
- Appropriate clean up procedures:
- Take up liquid spill into a non combustible material e.g. dry sand/earth/vermiculite or kieselguhr.
- Scoop absorbed substance into closing containers
- Carefully collect the spill/leftovers
- Take collected spill to manufacture/competent authority.
- Inappropriate containment or clean up techniques: none known.

Handling and storage

Recommendations for safe handling:
- Reduce/avoid exposure and/or contact
- Use spark-/explosion proof appliances and lighting systems
- Take precautions against electrostatic charges
- Handle uncleaned empty containers as full ones
- Do not discharges the waste into the drain.

Advice on occupational hygiene:
- Do not eat, drink or smoke in work areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Protection against incompatibilities substances:
- Keep container tightly closed
- Store in a cool area
- Ventillation of floor level
- Provide a tub to collect spills
- Keep away from: heat sources, ignition sources, oxidizing agents, acids, bases, organic materials.
Protection against ambient influences:
- Store in a cool area
- Recommendation storage temperature: 20°C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
- Ventilation and local exhaust.
- Measure the concentration in the air regularly

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective:
- Eye protection: protection goggles (EN 166)
- Skin protection: hand protection: gloves (EN 374) breakthrough time not determined/suitable material: butyl rubber, viton
- Body protection: protective clothing/suitable material: butyl rubber, viton
- Respiratory protection: high gas/vapour concentration: compressed air/oxygen apparatus/gas mask with filter type AX (EN 14387)

Environmental exposure controls: Direct polluted air of the local exhaust ventilation out of the plant in a manner in accordance with environmental regulations.

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity: not reactive
- Chemical stability: stable under normal temperature and pressures
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: exothermic polymerisation with explosive violence in the presence of (strong) acid.
- Conditions to avoid: Keep away from: heat sources, ignitions sources, oxidising agents, acids, bases, organic materials
- Incompatible materials: reacts violently with oxidants and strong acids (polymerisation)
- Hazardous decomposition products: upon decomposition emits carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and/or low molecular weight hydrocarbons.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment method:
- recycling by distillation
- Removal to an authorized waste incinerator for solvents or as chemical waste in accordance with local regulations. Do not discharge wastewater into sewer.

European waste list (EURAL): 07 01 04 (other organic solvents, washing liquids mother liquors).

Waste materials codes (Flanders): 015; 034

Packaging/container: 10 01 10 (packaging containing residues of or contaiminated by dangerous substances).
