First-aid measures

General advice
Take care of your own personal safety.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.
Keep patient warm and at rest.
Do not leave victims unattended.
after inhalation of vapours / spray mist
Move victims into fresh air.
If symptoms persist, call a physician.
In case of difficulties in breathing, supply oxygen.
Employ artificial respiration if breathing ceases.
Consult a physician immediately.
Skin contact
Wash off with plenty of water and soap immediately.
Continue flushing with polyethylene glycol 400.
If symptoms persist, call a physician.
Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.
Protect unharmed eye.
Consult an ophthalmologist.
Do not induce vomiting and seek medical advice immediately.
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.
Notes to physician
Has skin-degreasing properties.
No specific antidote known.
Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
high volume water jet
Specific hazards during fire fighting
In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.
Closed container may rupture if strongly heated.
Heavier than air vapour.
Formation of flammable or explosive vapour/air mixtures possible.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
In the case of respirable dust and/or fumes, use self-contained breathing apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, drainage systems, stretches of water, soil.
Avoid penetration into drainage system or in rooms situated at a lower level because of danger of explosion.
Issue an immediate alarm report to the company environmental protection department if the product unintentionally leaves the production area.
Methods for cleaning up
Take up mechanically or with an absorbent material.
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

Handling and storage

Safe handling advice
Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.
Ensure sufficient ventilation.
Handle and open container with care.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Ensure explosion proofness.
Temperature class
Temperature classification T 3.
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Suitable materials for example, Unalloyed steel
Suitable materials See DECHEMA materials table for additional materials.
Advice on common storage
Observe prohibition against storing together!
German storage class
3B - Combustible Liquids

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Provide for good ventilation if vapours/aerosols are formed.
Occupational exposure controls
Further information
ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industry Hygienists)
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type A) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Hand protection
Chemical-resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0.5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Method Source: GESTIS substance database (hazardous substance information system of commercial professional associations)
Glove material for example, nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) gloves
Material thickness 0.35 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Method Source: GESTIS substance database (hazardous substance information system of commercial professional associations)
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).
Eye protection
Safety glasses with side-shields
Skin and body protection
Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace involved.
Hygiene measures
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.
Use barrier cream regularly.
Protective measures
Wear suitable protective clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Materials to avoid
strong oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products
In case of fire or thermal decomposition production of, for example, Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide (CO2)

Hazardous reactions
Reaction with strong oxidants.

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Disposal considerations

With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to waste incineration plant
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority
