First-aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing. In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical
attention.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.
On contact with eyes:
In case of contact with the eyes, rinse immediately for at least 15 minutes with plenty of water. If
irritation develops, seek medical attention.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: No significant reaction of the human body to the product known.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, foam, dry powder
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain
conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and bases. Segregate from oxidants.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep only in the original container. Keep container tightly
closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container dry. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks,
open flame.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
No occupational exposure limits known.
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if dusts are formed. Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release.
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work
clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Hazardous reactions in presence of mentioned substances to avoid.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid heat. Avoid direct sunlight. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid
electro-static charge. Avoid humidity.
Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
acids, Alkalines, substances with an acid reaction, oxidizing agents, reducing agents
Hazardous decomposition products
Hazardous decomposition products:
carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
