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 soap and water, seek medical attention.
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.

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 of MSDS) and/or in section 11 of MSDS. Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.

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

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon oxides, nitrous gases
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective measures see, section 8. Ensure adequate ventilation. Sources of ignition should be kept well clear. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation.

Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr).
Wear suitable protective equipment. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section "Exposure controls/personal protection" and "Disposal considerations"

Handling and storage


Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Product should be worked up in closed equipment as far as possible. Personal protective equipment should be worn during open handling. The workplace should be equipped with an emergency shower and eye-rinsing facility.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.
Suitable materials for containers: High density polyethylene (HDPE), Low density polyethylene (LDPE), Stainless steel 1.4301 (V2), Stainless steel 1.4401, glass, Carbon steel (Iron), Aluminium
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Storage stability:
Storage temperature: 20 °C
Storage duration: 12 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with occupational exposure limits
No occupational exposure limits known.

PNEC
freshwater: 0.19 mg/l
marine water: 19 mg/l
intermittent release: 1.9 mg/l
sediment (freshwater): 17.2 mg/kg
sediment (marine water): 1.72 mg/kg
soil: 3.31 mg/kg
STP: 785 mg/l
oral (secondary poisoning):
No PNEC oral derived, as accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

DNEL
worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 0.24 mg/m3
worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 0.35 mg/kg

Exposure controls
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):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 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)
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
natural rubber/natural latex (NR) - 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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
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 contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation. Where there is any possibility that the eyes of an employee may be exposed to this substance, the employer should provide an eye wash fountain within the immediate working area for emergency use. Under no circumstances should the product come into contact with the skin of pregnant women or be inhaled by them. Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario. No eating, drinking, smoking or tobacco use at the place of work. Store work clothing separately. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks).

Environmental exposure controls
For information regarding environmental exposure controls, see Section "Accidental release measures".
