First-aid measures

1.Description of first aid measures
General
Seek for medical attention in case of persistent irritation, discomfort or any other severe trouble.
Inhalation
Bring patient to fresh air. Seek medical advice if breathing discomfort persists.
Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water
for a few minutes. Soap is not necessary as product is a surfactant.
Launder clothes and carefully clean shoes before reuse.
Eye
Rinse immediately and as long as possible (15 minutes at least) with plenty of water. Eyelids should be
held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do.
Ingestion
Rinse mouth with water. DO NOT DRINK. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING because of risk of aspiration.
Self protection of qualified first-aiders
First-aiders shall wear the recommended personal protection equipment (see section 8).
2. Most important symptoms and effects (acute & delayed)
Harmful if swallowed or inhaled. Causes respiratory irritation. Irritates the skin.
Causes serious damage to eye.
In case of inadequate first-aid measures there is a possibility of persistent effects on the eye.
3. Indication of any immediate needed attention and special treatment needed.
Advice to physician: symptomatic treatment is advised.
Eye rinsing device shall be made available at any point of handling of the product.

Fire-fighting measures

1. Extinguishing media
All extinguishing means are allowed.
High-pressure water jets will produce foam due to the surfactant property of the substance.
2. Special Hazards arising from the substance.
Material is flammable. If involved in a fire, it may give off fumes containing sulphur and carbon oxides.
3. Advice for fire fighters
Use standard procedure for chemical fire.
Use self-contained breathing apparatus if necessary as substance may release toxic fumes if involved in
a fire.

Accidental release measures

1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedure.
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Remove all ignition sources.
Provide sufficient ventilation. May make floor very slippery if in contact with water.
2. Environmental precautions
Contain by any physical mean. Protect drains.
Do not allow to escape into ground, drains, sewage system, surface and ground waters.
3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Collect as much as possible by any mechanical mean in a clean container for (preferably) reuse or
disposal in accordance with local regulations. Clean the ground with any mechanical mean (brush). Do
not allow cleaning water to enter into public watercourses. Wear personal protection equipment during
cleaning up operations.

Handling and storage

1. Precautions for safe handling
Wear protective equipments (see section 8). Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Immediately clean spillages (see section 6); slippery floor in case of spillage on wet ground. See section
10 as well.
Powder forms explosive dust. All engineering risk management measures have to be taken to avoid dust
explosion conditions. Avoid static electricity sparks and flames. All handling equipment shall be grounded.
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work area. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment and
wash hands before entering eating areas.
2. Safe storage conditions and incompatibilities
Store in tightly closed plastic or plastic lined bags or fiber drums. Recommended storage temperature:
40°C maximum. Do not store close to strong oxidising agents.
3. Specific end uses
The ingredients of this mixture are very widely used and is not designed for any very specific uses

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters
Occupational exposure limit value: No exposure limit has been established.
8.2. Exposure control.
Engineering controls: The general precautionary measures for handling chemicals should be observed.
In particular, dust exhaust system shall be installed where handling conditions will generate dust.
Personnal protective equipment
§ Respiratory : Wear anti dust mask (FFP3/NPF 50 type according to EN 149-2009).
§ Hand: Recommended protective gloves: Nitrile 0.4 mm, level 4 > 120 min in case of full contact.
§ Eye : Wear eye tightly fitting safety goggles.
§ Skin and body: Wear appropriate protective clothing, slip proof shoes.

Stability and reactivity

10.1. Reactivity
The mixture shows low reactivity as all substances of the anionic surfactants category. Contact with
strong oxidising agents shall however be avoided
10.2. Chemical stability
The mixture is stable if stored and handled properly.
However, if stored at high temperature (above 50°C or between 40 and 50°C for a long period of time) or
in contact with hot spots or if it enters in contact with small amount of strong acid, product may undergo
acid hydrolysis and generate sulphuric acid. If this occurs, pH of the product will drop drastically.
10.3. Possibility of hazardous reaction
None if stored and handled properly with the exception of the here above described hydrolysis conditions.
10.4. Conditions to avoid
Temperatures in excess of 50°C.
10.5. Incompatible materials
Avoid contact with acids (see here above) and with strong oxidising agents.
10.6. Hazardous decomposition products
No decomposition at recommended handling temperature. However, in case of extreme hydrolysis (see
here above), product may release a corrosive mixture of fatty alcohol and sulphuric acid.

Disposal considerations

Product and contaminated packaging
Recycle as much as possible the recovered product. If recycling is not possible, dispose product and/or packaging
according to local regulations and via authorised elimination channel (most probably controlled incineration).
