First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation Remove patient from exposure, keep warm and at rest.
Obtain medical attention if ill effects occur.
Skin Contact Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin with water.
If symptoms develop, obtain medical attention.
Eye Contact Irrigate with eyewash solution or clean water, holding the eyelids apart, for at least 10 minutes.
Obtain medical attention.
Ingestion Do not induce vomiting.
Provided the patient is conscious, wash out mouth with water and give 200-300 ml (half a pint)
of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Unlikely to be required but if necessary treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable Extinguishing Media As appropriate for surrounding materials/equipment.
Use water with care to avoid possible violent production of steam.
Water spray should be used to cool containers.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media None anticipated.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Likely to be low fire hazard (by analogy with similar substances). Thermal decomposition likely to evolve irritant vapours.

Advice for fire-fighters
A self contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

Environmental precautions
Do not allow spillages to enter drains, sewers, or watercourses.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Adsorb spillages onto sand, earth or any suitable adsorbent material. Transfer to a container for disposal or recovery.

Additional information
Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be alerted to the Environment Agency or other appropriate
regulatory body.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapour. Provide adequate ventilation.
Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep away from strong oxidising agents.
Keep container dry. Avoid ingress of moisture by keeping containers properly sealed when not in use.
Suitable containers: Mild steel
Storage Temperature : Ambient.
Total storage life at recommended conditions: 2 years if stored in accordance with advice given above.

Special provisions / remarks / other:
Unlikely to be classified as Dangerous for Transport (by analogy with similar substances)

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls
Provide adequate ventilation where operational procedures demand it.
Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
Personal Protection
Eye/face protection If splashes are likely to occur: Wear eye/face protection.
Skin protection Good working practice suggests gloves and goggles should be worn. The following materials
are suitable for protective gloves (permeation time >= 8 hours): Nitrile rubber (0.35 mm), Butyl
rubber (0.5 mm), Poly(vinyl chloride) PVC (0.5 mm), Fluorocarbon rubber (0.4 mm),
Check with protective equipment manufacturer's data.
Unsuitable gloves materials : Natural rubber , Polychloroprene
Respiratory protection Wear suitable respiratory protective equipment if exposure to high levels of material are likely.
A suitable mask with filter type A may be appropriate. Check with protective equipment
manufacturer's data.

Stability and reactivity

Likely to be non-reactive (by analogy with similar substances).

Chemical Stability
Likely to be stable at ambient temperatures (by analogy with similar substances).

Possibility of hazardous reactions
May need to keep away from strong oxidising agents.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Do not discharge into drains or the environment, dispose to an authorised waste collection point.

Additional information
Disposal should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation.
