First-aid measures

General advice:
Under the shower: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing (including shoes).

Inhalation:
Inhalation of mists: Move patient from contaminated area to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed.
Keep under medical surveillance. In case of problems : Hospitalise.

Skin contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. Consult a physician. In case of extensive burns, hospitalize.

Eye contact: Wash open eyes immediately, abundantly and thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately.

Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting, rinse mouth and lips with plenty of water if the subject is conscious, then hospitalize.

Protection of first-aiders: If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus. Protective suit.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Specific hazards:
Flammable., Possible re-ignition of vapours from a distance
Thermal decomposition giving toxic products:, nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon oxides

Specific methods: Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Ensure containers can be rapidly moved. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke.


Advice for firefighters:
Specific methods:
Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Ensure containers can be rapidly moved. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers.
Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Complete suit protecting against chemicals

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Use personal protective equipment. Beware of vapours accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapours can accumulate in low areas.

Environmental precautions:
Prevent product from entering drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).
Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Moist product : absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material
Capture the gas with fine water spray (scrubbing), collect and treat contaminated water

Neutralisation: Neutralize with a sodium bisulphate solution.

Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures/Precautions: Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Liquid. Highly flammable Toxic. Corrosive. With vapours explosive in air. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide fire-blanket nearby. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide water supplies near the point of use. Provide waterproof electrical equipment. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby.

Safe handling advice: Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure. Do not use air for transfers. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Use only in an area containing explosion proof equipment.

Hygiene measures: Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Store protected from moisture and heat. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide impermeable floor. Provide waterproof electrical equipment. Provide electrical earthing of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres.Do not store above: 50 °C

Incompatible products: Strong acids, Strong oxidizing agents, Product likely to react violently in alkaline environment such as Nitrous acid - Nitrites - Oxygen

Packaging material: Recommended: Ordinary steel
