First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice: In the case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical ad-vice immediately. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.
Protection of first-aiders: First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection, and use the recommended personal protective equipment when the potential for exposure exists.
If inhaled: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
In case of skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention.Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
In case of eye contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If easy to do, remove contact lens, if worn. Get medical attention.
If swallowed: If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs have person lean forward. Call a physician or poison control centre immediately. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Risks: May be fatal if swallowed and enters airways. Causes skin irritation. May cause an allergic skin reaction. Causes serious eye irritation. Harmful if inhaled.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Alcohol-resistant foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry chemical
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire-fighting: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire. Flash back possible over considerable distance. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. The product burns violently. Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.
Hazardous combustion products: Carbon oxides
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Use personal protective equipment.
Specific extinguishing methods: Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to do so. Evacuate area.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions: Remove all sources of ignition. Use personal protective equipment. Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equip-ment recommendations.
Environmental precautions: Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers). Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up: Waste must NOT be included in a tight way. Clear spills immediately.Do not clean-up or dispose of, except under supervision of a specialist. Take any precaution to avoid mixing with combustibles. Keep substance wet using water spray. Non-sparking tools should be used.
Soak up with inert absorbent material. Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. For large spills, provide dyking or other appropriate contain-ment to keep material from spreading. If dyked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container. Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absor-bent. Keep waste moist, cool and well-ventilated. Isolate waste and do not reuse. Local or national regulations may apply to releases and dis-posal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to deter-mine which regulations are applicable.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Technical measures: See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION section.
Local/Total ventilation: Use with local exhaust ventilation. Use only in an area equipped with explosion proof exhaust ventilation.
Advice on safe handling: Do not get on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Non-sparking tools should be used. Prevent pressure build-up. Confinement can rapidly increase rate of decomposition. Keep container tightly closed. Protect from contamination. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Keep away from combustible material. Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.
Hygiene measures: Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep in properly labelled containers. Store in original contain-er. Store locked up. Keep tightly closed. Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Protect from sunlight. Adhere to recommended storage temperature. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Advice on common storage: Store away from other materials.
Recommended storage temperature: < 25 °C
Other data: Avoid confinement.
