First-aid measures

- General advice: Take affected persons out of danger area and lay down. Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product. Remove breathing equipment only after contaminated clothing have been completely removed. In case of irregular breathing or respiratory arrest provide artificial respiration. If symptoms persist, call a physician.
- Eye contact: Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention.
- Skin contact: Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly. If skin irritation continues, consult a physician.
- Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.
- Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse out mouth and then drink plenty of water. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), water spray, dry chemical, alcohol-resistant foam
- Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: High volume water jet
- Specific hazards arising from the chemical: Vapors are heavier than air and may spray along floors. Heating or fire can release toxic gas: Carbon monoxide, Nitrogen oxides (NOx), ammonia
- Specific methods: In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Keep product and empty container away from heat and sources of ignition. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
- Protective equipment and precautions for firefighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep people away from and upwind spill / leak. Wear protective clothing.
- Environmental precautions: Should not be released into the environment. Remove immediately adhering matter. Prevent product from entering drains. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Do not allow to penetrate the ground / soil.
- Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Use explosion-proof equipment. Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. dry sand or earth), then place in a chemical waste container. Large spills should be collected mechanically (remove by pumping) for disposal.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Wear personal protective equipment. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Avoid breathing vapors or mists.
- Conditions for safe storage, including incompatibilities: Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Store in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

- Engineering controls: Local exhaust ventilation (LEV)
- Eye/face protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles. Face-shield. Respirator with a full mask.
- Skin protection: Wear suitable protective equipment. Complete suit protecting against chemicals.
- Hand protection: Neoprene gloves. Solvent-resistant gloves (butyl-rubber). The selected gloves have to satisfy the specifications of EU Directive 89/689/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it. The suitability for a specific workplace should be discussed with the producers of the protective gloves.
- Respiratory protection: In the case of vapor formation use a respirator with filter model K. In case of higher concentrations use a self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133).
- Environmental exposure controls: Prevent product from entering drains. Do not contaminate surface water. Avoid subsoil penetration.

Stability and reactivity

- Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions. Hazardous polymerisation does not occur.
- Possibility of hazardous reactions: None under normal processing.
- Conditions to avoid: Temperatures above 50 °C. Heat, flames and sparks. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which might cause ignition of organic vapors).
- Incompatible materials to avoid: Strong oxidizing agents.
- Hazardous decomposition products: Heating or fire and release toxic gas - Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon oxides.

Disposal considerations

- Waste disposal method: Should not be released into the environment. Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
- Contaminated packaging: Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
