First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Eye contact: Rinse with plenty of running water. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. Prevent cooling of the person. Keep victim at rest in half-upright position. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Get medical attention.

Skin contact: Rinse with plenty of running water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Ingestion: If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Protection of first-aiders: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Small fire: Non-combustible. Use extinguishing media suitable for surrounding materials.

Large fire: Non-combustible. Use extinguishing media suitable for surrounding materials.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazards from the substance or mixture: No specific hazard

Hazardous combustion products: In case of fire, may produce toxic and/or corrosive decomposition products.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Fire water contaminated with this material must be contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway, sewer or drain.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear suitable protective clothing. Self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders: If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any information in the exposure controls/personal protection section for suitable and unsuitable materials. Refer also to information in the exposure controls/personal protection section for additional information on hygiene measures.

Environmental precautions: Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas. Dyke if necessary.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Small spill: Take up with suitable material. Place in a suitable container. Clean up affected area with a large amount of water.

Large spill: Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas. Dyke if necessary. Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth) and place in a chemical waste container. Recycle, if possible.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Protective measures: Preferably use in closed systems. Use with adequate ventilation. Use suitable protective equipment. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, respiratory tract and clothing.

Advice on general occupational hygiene: 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. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. See also Section 8 for additional information on hygiene measures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed. Keep containers deep-frozen.

Suitable packaging materials: Polyethylene containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Occupational exposure limits: 60 ng/m3

Recommended monitoring procedures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment. Reference should be made to monitoring standards, such as the following: European Standard EN 689 (Workplace atmospheres - Guidance for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents for comparison with limit values and measurement strategy) European Standard EN14042 (Workplace atmospheres - Guide for the application and use of procedures for the assessment of exposure to chemical and biological agents) European Standard EN 482 (Workplace atmospheres - General requirements for the performance of procedures for the measurement of chemical agents) Reference to national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances will also be required.

DNELs/DMELs: No DNELs/DMELs available.

PNECs: No PNECs available

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls: Use only with adequate ventilation.

Individual protection measures

Hygiene measures: When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands after handling compounds and before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the day.

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses with side shields.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at alltimes when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. > 8 hours (breakthrough time): Nitrile rubber, butyl rubber, neoprene, Viton®. Replace damaged gloves.

Skin and body: Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection: Respirator approved for this type of substance or self-contained breathing apparatus.

Environmental exposure controls: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Advice on personal protection is applicable for high exposure levels. Select proper personal protection based on a risk assessment of the actual exposure situation.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: No specific test data related to reactivity available for this product or its ingredients.

Chemical stability: Stable under recommended storage and handling conditions

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous reactions will not occur.

Conditions to avoid: No special recommendations.

Incompatible materials: No special recommendations.
