First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
General advice
First aider needs to protect himself. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.
Inhalation
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Skin contact
Wash off immediately with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash clothing before reuse.
Eye contact
In case of eye contact, remove contact lens and rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Protect unharmed eye. Call ambulance. (Cue: caustic burn of the eyes) . Continue rinsing eye until arrival at ophthalmic hospital. Immediate further treatment in ophthalmic hospital/ ophthalmologist.
Ingestion
Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Acute dermal irritation/corrosion, Acute eye irritation/corrosion, Skin Sensitisation

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, Alcohol-resistant foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.

5.3. Advice for firefighters

Special fire fighting procedures:
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Use only explosion-proof equipment.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Larger quantities: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! Smaller quantities and/or residues: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose of in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
For personal protection see section 8. For disposal considerations see section 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Do not eat, drink or smoke during use. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Use only explosion-proof equipment. Keep container tightly closed. Provide good room ventilation even at ground level (vapours are heavier than air).

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. Protect from the action of light. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability. Can polymerize with intense heat release.
German storage class
Combustible substances, toxic

7.3. Specific end use(s)
no
