First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and
transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). First aid personnel should pay attention to
their own safety.
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:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see
section 2) and/or in section 11., Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.
4.3. 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

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of
fire.
5.3. Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated
extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Breathing protection required.
6.2. Environmental precautions
Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do
not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance
with regulations.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Avoid all direct contact with the substance/product. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves.
Containers must only be opened under local exhaust ventilation. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Sources of ignition should be kept well clear. Take precautionary measures against static
discharges. If delivered in plastic packing, highest permissable emptying temperature is 5 Kelvin
below the flash point.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: 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
Polyethylene-Laminate (PE laminate) - ca. 0.1 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding >
30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Body protection:
chemical-protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work
clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Avoid all contact with
the substance.
