First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become
unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately
remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a
corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Hazards: No hazard is expected under intended use and appropriate handling.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam

Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Use personal protective clothing. Breathing protection required.

Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater. Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.
For large amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid aerosol formation.

Protection against fire and explosion:
No special precautions necessary.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool
place.
Protect from temperatures above: 60 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness

Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in
practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case
of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures
Do not inhale gases/vapours/aerosols. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety
practice. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Conditions to avoid
Avoid extreme heat.

Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
strong oxidizing agents, strong alkalies

Hazardous decomposition products
No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Must be disposed of or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.
Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
