First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
-----------------------------
Inhalation:
- Remove to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration.
- If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Skin:
- After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water. Consult a physician.

Eye:
- In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

Ingestion:
- Call a physician immediately. Clean mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice.
- Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
---------------------------------------------------------
- May cause sensitization by inhalation and skin contact.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
------------------
Appropriate fire-fighting equipment:
- Foam, powder, water spray.

Inappropriate fire-fighting equipment
- Do not use water jets as they can disperse and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
------------------------------------------------
In combustion emits toxic fumes of carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide.

Advice for firefighters
--------------------
- In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Water mist may be used to cool closed containers.
- Use personal protective equipment to protect skin/eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
----------------------------------------------------------------
- Move any people not authorized to contain the emergency out of the area.
- Avoid coming in contact with the substance or handling containers without adequate protection.
- Use the personal protective equipment described in section 'Exposure controls/personal protection'
- Use a respirator in the event of emissions/spillage of large quantities.
- Eliminate all sources of ignition.
- Remove all incompatible materials as outlined in section 'Stability and reactivity'.
- Avoid dust formation.

Environmental precautions
------------------------
- Contain the spillage as far as possible.
- Prevent spilled materials getting into the drainage system, wells, surface water or groundwater.
- In the case of leaks into a water course, drains, or if the product has contaminated the ground or vegetation, contact the local authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
-------------------------------------------------
- Do not use equipment that can generate sources of ignition when cleaning.
- Clean the spilled material mechanically and put it in an appropriate container for disposal in accordance with in accordance with section 'Disposal considerations'. After collection, ventilate and clean the affected area with water before granting access.
- Do not flush the water used for cleaning into watercourses or down drains.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
--------------------------
Recommendations for safe use:
- Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Avoid accumulation of electrostatic charges, to prevent risk of powders exploding.
- Avoid formation of respirable particles.
- Avoid breathing dust.

Advice on general occupational hygiene:
- Do no eat, drink or smoke when using this product.
- Wash hands thoroughly after handling.
- Take off contaminated clothing and wash it before reuse.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
-----------------------------------------------------
- Eliminate all sources of combustion.
- Keep container hermetically closed in a dry and well ventilated environment.
- Avoid the formation of dust.
- Keep away from incompatible materials (see section 'Stability and reactivity').
- Keep away from food, feed and beverages.
