First-aid measures

Inhalation

-In case of accident by inhalation: remove casualty to fresh air and keep at rest

-Victim to lie down in the recovery position, cover and keep him warm

-Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed

-If symptoms persist, call a physician

Eye contact:

-Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes

-In the case of difficulty of opening the lids, administer an analgesic eye wash (oxybuprocaine)

-Immediate medical attention is required

Skin contact:

-Remove and wash contamined clothing before re-use

-Wash off with soap and water

-If symptoms persist, call a physician

Ingestion

-Consult a physician

-Take victim immediately to hospital

If victim is conscious:

-If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious)

-Do NOT induce vomiting

-Do not give anything to drink

-Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary

If victim is unconscious but breathing:

-Artificial respiration and/or oxygen may be necessary

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

-Powder

-Foam, AFFF

-Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons:

-High volume water jet

Special exposure hazards in a fire:

-Extremely flammable

-Vapours are havier than air and may spread along floors

-Risk of ignition

-Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air

-Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:

-Evacuate personnel to safe areas

-Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit

-Fire fighters must wear fire resistant personnel protective equipment

-Protect intervention team with a water spray as they approach the fire

-Clean contamined surface thoroughly

Other information:

-Cool containers/tanks with water spray

-Flood the product with water

-Avoid propagating the fire when directing the extinguishing agent as a jet onto the surface of the burning liquid

-Avoid propagating the fire, by flotation of the product (density <1)

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

-Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so

-Vapours are havier than air and can cause suffocation by reducing oxygen available for breathing

-Wear self-contained breathing apparatus in confined spaces, in cases where the oxygen level is depleted, or in case of significant emissions

-Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition

-Cover the spreading liquid with foam in order to slow down the evaporation

-Keep away from incompatible products

-Ventilate the area

-Refer to protective measures listed below

Environmental precautions:

-Should not be released into the environment

-If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities

Methods for cleaning up:

-Dam up

-Soak up with inert absorbent material

-Prevent product from entering drains

-Keep in properly labelled containers

-Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal

Handling and storage

Handling:

-Use only in well-ventilated areas

-Used in closed system

-Handle small quantities under a lab hood

-Keep away from heat and sources of ignition

-Prevent product vapours decomposition from contacting hot spots

-Prevent product vapours decomposition from electric arc action (welding)

-Preferably transfer by pump or gravity

-Transfer using a pump equipped for collection and return of gas/vapour

-Do not use compressed air for transferring or handling the product

-Use only equipment and materials which are compatible with the product

-No sparking tools should be used

-Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking

-Keep away from incompatible products

Storage:

-Store in orignal container

-Keep contained closed

-Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place

-Keep away from heat and sources of ignition

-Keep away from incompatible products

-Keep in a bunded area

Packaging material:

-Steel drum

-Stainless steel

Other information:

-Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame - No smoking

-Provide electrical equipment safe for hazardous locations

-Ensure all equipment is electrically grounded before beginning transfer operations

-Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge

-To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat

-Refer to protective measures listed below
