4.1. Description of first aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:

If difficulties occur after vapour/aerosol has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

On contact with eyes:

Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

On ingestion:

Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.

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

SECTION 5: Fire-Fighting Measures

5.1. Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

water spray, dry powder, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:

water jet

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

SECTION 6: Accidental Release Measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective clothing. Breathing protection required.

6.2. Environmental precautions

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.

6.4. Reference to other sections

Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

SECTION 7: Handling and Storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

No special measures necessary provided product is used correctly.

Protection against fire and explosion:

Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-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 for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding >
30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
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:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case
of dust).
General safety and hygiene measures
Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.
No eating, drinking, smoking or tobacco use at the place of work. Handle in accordance with good
industrial hygiene and safety practice.
