First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Consult a physician.

Skin contact: In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Remove contaminated clothing. Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Get medical attention immediately if irritation develops and persists. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Do not take clothing home to be laundered.

Eye contact: IMMEDIATELY flush eyes with a large amount of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

Ingestion: Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. IMMEDIATELY see a physician. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep airway clear. Do not induce vomiting: contains petroleum distillates and/or aromatic solvents. Careful gastric lavage may be indicated.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Aside from the information found under Description of first aid measures (above) and Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed (below), no additional symptoms and effects are anticipated.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Notes to physician: In acute cases of naphtha overexposure or ingestion, patients should be evaluated for signs of respiratory distress. Product contains a petroleum distillate that may cause CNS symptoms. If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting due to the risk of aspiration posed by petroleum distillates. If swallowed, careful evacuation of the stomach is advisable.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Use the following extinguishing media when fighting fires involving this material: Carbon dioxide (CO2) Dry chemical Water spray Foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous combustion products: During a fire, smoke may contain the original material in addition to combustion products of varying composition which may be toxic and/or irritating. Combustion products may include and are not limited to: Carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide.

Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Closed containers may rupture via pressure build-up when exposed to fire or extreme heat. Combustion generates toxic fumes of the following: Carbon oxides Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Advice for firefighters
Fire Fighting Procedures: Move containers promptly out of fire zone. If removal is impossible, cool containers with water spray. Remain upwind. Avoid breathing smoke. Contain run-off.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Appropriate protective equipment must be worn when handling a spill of this material.

Environmental precautions: Prevent from entering into soil, ditches, sewers, waterways and/or groundwater.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Keep spectators away. Ventilate the area. Avoid breathing vapor. Floor may be slippery; use care to avoid falling. Contain spills immediately with inert materials (e.g., sand, earth). Transfer liquids and solid diking material to separate suitable containers for recovery or disposal. CAUTION: Keep spills and cleaning runoff out of municipal sewers and open bodies of water.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Vapors can be evolved when material is heated during processing operations. Wash after handling and shower at end of work period. This material is a potential skin sensitizer.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Avoid temperature extremes during storage; ambient temperature preferred. Store away from excessive heat (e.g. steampipes,radiators), from sources of ignition and from reactive materials. Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store out of direct sunlight in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Limits: No exposure limits established.

Engineering controls: Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation.

Protective measures: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower.

Individual protection measures
Eye/face protection: Use chemical splash goggles (ANSI Z87.1 or approved equivalent). Eye protection worn must be compatible with respiratory protection system employed.

Skin protection
Hand protection: Chemical-resistant gloves should be worn whenever this material is handled. The glove(s) listed below may provide protection against permeation. (Gloves of other chemically resistant materials may not provide adequate protection): Neoprene gloves VITON Synthetic Rubber (registered Trademark of Dupont Dow Elastomers) Silver Shield (Trademark of Siebe North, Inc.) Gloves should be removed and replaced immediately if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough. Rinse and remove gloves immediately after use. Wash hands with soap and water.

Other protection: Use chemically resistant apron or other impervious clothing to avoid prolonged or repeated skin contact.

Respiratory protection: Use certified respiratory protection equipment meeting EU requirements(89/656/EEC, 89/686/EEC ), or equivalent, when respiratory risks cannot be avoided or sufficiently limited by technical means of collective protection or by measures, methods or procedures of work organization.
