First-aid measures

EYES: Wash immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and seek medical advice at once.

SKIN: Immediately take off all contaminated clothing and have a shower. Seek medical advice.

INGESTION: Have the patient drink water as much as possible and seek medical advice immediately. Do not induce vomiting before consulting a doctor.
INHALATION: Immediately seek medical advice. In the meantime, remove the patient to open air, far from the contaminated premises; if respiration stops or is difficult, give an artificial respiration adopting the proper measure for the helper.

Fire-fighting measures

GENERAL INFORMATION
Use jets of water to cool the containers to prevent product decomposition and the development of substances potentially hazardous for health. Always wear full fire prevention gear. Collect extinguishing water to prevent it from draining into the sewer system. Dispose of contaminated water used for extinction and the remains of the fire according to applicable regulations.

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
The extinction equipment should be of the conventional kind: carbon dioxide, foam, powder and nebulised water.

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA WHICH SHALL NOT BE USED FOR SAFETY REASONS.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Use breathing equipment if fumes or powders are released into the air.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
The product must not penetrate the sewers, surface water, ground water and neighbouring areas.

METHODS FOR CLEANING UP
Confine using earth or inert material. Collect as much material as possible and eliminate the rest using jets of water. Contaminated material should be disposed of in compliancewith national and local regulations.

Handling and storage

Store in a wellventilated place, keeping the containers closed when not used. Do not smoke while handling. Keep far away from sources of
heat, bright flames and sparks and other sources of ignition.
Store only in the original container. Follow the instructions of the supplier. Store in a ventilated and dry place, far away from sources of ignition. Ensure that there is an adequate earthing system for the equipment and personnel.

Exposure controls / personal protection

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates.
The substance is not used as transported isolated intermediate.

HAND PROTECTION
Protect hands with category I (ref. Directive 89/686/EEC and standard EN 374) work gloves, such as those in latex, PVC or equivalent. The following should be considered when choosing work glove material: degradation, breakage times and permeation. Work glove resistance to preparations should be checked before use, as it can be unpredictable. Gloves’ limit depends on the duration of exposure.

SKIN PROTECTION
Wear category I professional long-sleeved overalls and safety footwear (ref. Directive 89/686/CEE and standard EN 344). Wash body with soap and water after removing overalls.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
If the threshold value for one or more of the substances present in the preparation for daily exposure in the workplace or to a fraction established by the company’s prevention and protection service is exceeded, wear a mask with an B or universal filter, the class (1, 2 or 3) of which must be chosen according to the limit concentration of use (ref. standard EN 141).
The use of breathing protection equipment, such as masks with organic vapour and dust/mist cartridges, is necessary in the absence of technical measures limiting worker exposure. The protection provided by masks is in any case limited.
If the substance in question is odourless or its olfactory threshold is higher than the relative exposure limit and in the event of an emergency, or when exposure levels are unknown or the concentration of oxygen in the workplace is less than 17% volume, wear self-contained, open-circuit compressed air breathing apparatus (ref. standard EN 137) or fresh air hose breathing apparatus for use with full face mask, half mask or mouthpiece (ref. standard EN 138).

EYE PROTECTION
Use of protective airtight goggles (ref. standard EN 166) recommended.

Stability and reactivity

The product is stable in normal conditions of use and storage. In the event of thermal decomposition or fire, vapours potentially dangerous to health may be released.
Thermal decomposition and combustion release carbon monoxides and other toxic gases and vapours. The product may react exothermically on contact with strong oxidizing agents or reducers, strong acids or bases.

Disposal considerations

Reuse, when possible. Product residues should be considered special hazardous waste. The hazard level of waste containing this product should be evaluated according to applicable regulations.
Disposal must be performed through an authorised waste management firm, in compliance with national and local regulations.

CONTAMINATED PACKAGING
Contaminated packaging must be recovered or disposed of in compliance with national waste management regulations.
