First-aid measures

Eye contact :
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower
eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10
minutes. Get medical attention.

Inhalation :
Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If
it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate
mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular
or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained
personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth
resuscitation. Get medical attention. If necessary, call a poison center or physician.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or
waistband.

Skin contact :
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and
shoes. Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or
wear gloves. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention. Wash
clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Ingestion :
Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air
and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been
swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to
drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not
induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs,
the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical
attention. If necessary, call a poison center or physician. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get
medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such
as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Protection of first-aiders :
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. If it is
suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask
or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person providing
aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly
with water before removing it, or wear gloves.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazards from the substance or mixture :
Extremely flammable liquid and vapour. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase
will occur and the container may burst, with the risk of a subsequent explosion. The
vapour/gas is heavier than air and will spread along the ground. Vapours may
accumulate in low or confined areas or travel a considerable distance to a source of
ignition and flash back. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. This
material is harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects. Fire water contaminated
with this material must be contained and prevented from being discharged to any
waterway, sewer or drain. May form explosive peroxides.

Hazardous combustion products:
Decomposition products may include the following materials:
carbon dioxide
carbon monoxide

Advice for firefighters
Special precautions for fire-fighters :
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if
there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable
training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water
spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters :
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure
mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves)
conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for
chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

For non-emergency personnel:
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all ignition sources.
No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Do not breathe vapour or mist.
Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders:
If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any
information in Section 8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the
information in "For non-emergency personnel".

Environmental precautions
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental
pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Water polluting material. May be harmful
to the environment if released in large quantities.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Small spill
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop
up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use spark-proof tools
and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach the release
from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined
areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand,
earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal
according to local regulations (see section 13). Use spark-proof tools and explosionproof
equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Handling and storage

Protective measures
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Avoid exposure -
obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions
have been read and understood. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not
breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Avoid release to the environment. Use only
with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined spaces unless adequately
ventilated. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a
compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from
heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion-proof electrical
(ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Use only non-sparking tools.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. Empty containers
retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Advice on general occupational hygiene:
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is
handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before
eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective
equipment before entering eating areas. See also Section 8 for additional
information on hygiene measures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved
area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated
area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and
drink. Store locked up. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing
materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers
that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent
leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to
avoid environmental contamination. Incompatible with plastics.
