First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance. Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation:
Potential for exposure by inhalation if dusts or smoke are generated.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor immediately.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water.
Continue decontamination with polyethylene glycol 400 after initial rinsing with water and then wash with water and soap.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.

Ingestion:
Rinse mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms: Irritation of skin and mucous membranes
Hazards: irritant effects

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation.
In the eye, irritating solids cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, irritation of the conjunctiva and, in exceptional cases, damage to the cornea.
There is a danger of blindness if corneas are damaged!
Superficial irritations and only infrequent damage with ulcerations develop on the skin.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray jet
Dry powder
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Alcohol-resistant foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Carbon monoxide
Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Advice for firefighters:
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
In case of fire, remove the endangered barrels and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Cool down container with a water jet from a safe distance.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep out unprotected persons.
Avoid formation of dust. Ensure sufficient ventilation.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Collect up material. Transfer into suitable containers for recovery or disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.
Use mechanical handling equipment.
Avoid dust formation.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see section "Exposure controls/personal protection"

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Keep in a dry, cool place.
Keep container tightly closed.
Provide sufficient ventilation and exhaust at the workplace.
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid residues of the product on the containers.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from combustion sources such as sparks, flames and unprotected light sources
When using do not smoke.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Storage:
