First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation:Get medical attention immediately. Move exposed person to fresh air. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours. In the event of any complaints or symptoms, avoid further exposure.

Ingestion:Get medical attention immediately. Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Skin Contact:Get medical attention immediately. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash the skin immediately with plenty of soap and water; cleaning immediately with polyethyleneglycol 400 and washing subsequently with plenty of soap and water would be more effective. Wash skin immediately with plenty of soap and water even when contact with the product is suspected. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye Contact:Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with
plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Notes to physician:Basic aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment. Treat with a
corticoid metered aerosol depending on the amount inhaled. If appropriate symptoms occur or inhalation of large quantities is suspected, administer cortisone intravenously in addition Medical surveillance for at least 48 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media : In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2.

Unsuitable extinguishing media :Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazards from the substance or mixture:
Highly flammable liquid. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst, with the risk of a subsequent explosion.
Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard.

Hazardous combustion products:
Decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides; nitrogen oxides; hydrogen cyanide

Advice for firefighters
Special precautions for firefighters:
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. This material is harmful to aquatic organisms. Fire water contaminated with this material must be contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway, sewer or drain.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self¬contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.
Remark:
The vapours are heavier than air and creep at ground level. If they are ignited, the flame may cover large distances.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions,protective equipment and emergency procedures:
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all ignition sources. No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions:
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Small Spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Take up with a moist, liquid-binding material (e.g. sand, sawdust or chemical binder based on hydrated calcium silicate) and treat carefully with diluted ammonia solution. Do not firmly seal waste containers (risk of CO2 generation!). Once the reaction is fully complete, pass on to disposal facilities. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.
Large Spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Use spark-proof tools and explosion¬proof equipment. Collect spillage. Absorb with an inert material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Do not firmly seal waste containers (risk of CO2 generation!). Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Carefully decompose residues with an aqueous ammonia solution.

Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Persons with a history of skin sensitisation problems or asthma, allergies or chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this product is used. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion¬proof electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion, dissipate static electricity during transfer by earthing and bonding containers and equipment before transferring material. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. The product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 17(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 (REACH Regulation) and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials (see Section 10) and food and drink. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Remarks : Ensure effective ventilation. Make sure all pipelines, tanks and
equipment are leakproof. Vent waste air only via suitable separators or scrubbers.
