First-aid measures

Information based on the mixture Aerosol TR 70% Surfactant.

Eye Contact:

Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical advice if there are persistent

symptoms.

Skin Contact:

Remove contaminated clothing and shoes without delay. Wash immediately with plenty of water. Do not reuse

contaminated clothing without laundering. Get medical attention if pain or irritation persists after washing or if signs

and symptoms of overexposure appear.

Ingestion:

If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Only induce vomiting at the instruction of a physician. Never give

anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Inhalation:

Material is not expected to be harmful if inhaled. Remove to fresh air.

Fire-fighting measures

Information based on the mixture Aerosol TR 70% Surfactant.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Suitable Extinguishing Media:

Use water spray, alcohol foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical to extinguish fires. Water stream may be ineffective.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE

Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS

Protective Equipment:

Firefighters, and others exposed, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full firefighting protective clothing.

See MSDS Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal Protection).

Accidental release measures

Information based on the mixture Aerosol TR 70% Surfactant.

Where exposure level is known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure. Where exposure level is not

known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator. In addition to the protective clothing/equipment in

Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal Protection), wear impermeable boots.

Environmental Precautions:

Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Remove sources of ignition. Cover spills with some inert absorbent material; sweep up and place in a waste disposal

container. Flush spill area with water.

Handling and storage

Information based on the mixture Aerosol TR 70% Surfactant.

Precautionary Measures: Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing.

Keep container closed. Use with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Special Handling Statements: If a batch of this material should gel/crystallize, a small amount of ethanol should

be added and the drum rolled until the gel has disappeared. To effect more rapid liquefaction, the drum should be

put in a steam-heated chest or hot room. Containers must be bonded and grounded when pouring or transferring

material.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Areas containing this material should have fire safe practices and electrical equipment in accordance with

applicable regulations and/or guidelines. Standards are primarily based on the material`s flashpoint, but may also

take into account properties such as miscibility with water or toxicity. All local and national regulations should be

followed.

In the Americas, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 30: Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, is a

widely used standard. NFPA 30 establishes storage conditions for the following classes of materials: Class I

Flammable Liquids, Flashpoint <37.8 °C. Class II Combustible Liquids, 37.8 °C < Flashpoint <60 °C. Class IIIa

Combustible Liquids, 60 °C < Flashpoint < 93 °C. Class IIIb Combustible Liquids, Flashpoint > 93 °C. Containers

filled with this material should be kept closed when not in use, as evapouration of water and solvent may cause

gelation/ crystallization. The quality of this material is not affected by this physical change.

VCI Storage Class: 10

Exposure controls / personal protection

Information based on the mixture Aerosol TR 70% Surfactant.

Where this material is not used in a closed system, good enclosure and local exhaust ventilation should be provided

to control exposure.

Respiratory Protection:

Where exposures are below the established exposure limit, no respiratory protection is required.

Where exposures exceed the established exposure limit, use respiratory protection recommended for the material

and level of exposure.

Eye protection:

Wear eye/face protection such as chemical splash proof goggles or face shield.

Eyewash equipment and safety shower should be provided in areas of potential exposure.

Skin Protection:

Avoid skin contact.

Wear impermeable gloves and suitable protective clothing.

Since this product is absorbed through the skin, care must be taken to prevent skin contact and contamination of

clothing.

Hand protection:

Wear impermeable gloves. Replace gloves immediately when torn or any change in appearance (dimension,

colour, flexibility etc) is noticed. Barrier creams may help to protect the exposed areas of the skin, they should

however not be applied once exposure has occurred.

Additional Advice:

Food, beverages, and tobacco products should not be carried, stored, or consumed where this material is in use.

Before eating, drinking, or smoking, wash face and hands thoroughly with soap and water.

It is recommended that a shower be taken after completion of workshift especially if significant contact has

occurred.

Work clothing should then be laundered prior to reuse.

Street clothing should be stored separately from work clothing and protective equipment.

Work clothing and shoes should not be taken home.
