PROTECTION OF FIRE-FIGHTERS

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS

Eliminate all sources of ignition. If outside do not approach from downwind. If outside keep bystanders upwind and away from danger point. Mark out the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel. Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection : Filters capturing particles.

Hand protection : Impermeable gloves resistant to chemical products.

Take into account that the resistance of the gloves could be influenced by different factors, e.g. the work condition or temperature. Conseguently the resistance could be different from the one indicated by the permeation data for a certain type of gloves.

Eye protection : Protective goggles

Body protection : Workers have to wear closed working clothes. The contaminated clothing should be washed before re-using them.

Additional information about engineering measures : Ventilation of the local where the product has been stored and/or manipulated.

Provide adequate ventilation.  

If this is not sufficient to maintain concentrations of particulates and solvent vapour below the OEL (=Occupational Exposure Limit) , suitable respiratory protection must be worn.

Stability and reactivity

Stable under recommended storage and handling conditions.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods : The disposal must be made in conformity with actual rules, in authorized dump or thermodistructions plant. Do not empty into waters or drains.

Contaminated packaging : Not reclaimable packs must be disposed with the product. Do not release in the environment.
