First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing. Remove affected person from danger area. First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport instable sideways position (recovery position). Show container, label and/or safety data sheet to
physician.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
dry extinguishing media, foam, carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Burning produces harmful and toxic fumes.
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing
water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.
Fire debris must be disposed of in accordance with offical regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr).
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Vacuum up spilled product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Storage
Suitable materials for containers: High density polyethylene (HDPE), Low density polyethylene
(LDPE), aluminum, Stove-lacquer RDL 50, glass, tin (tinplate)
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated
place. Protect from the effects of light.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
none
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
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.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Hands and/or face should be
washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability:
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Hazardous reactions:
When finely distributed, self-ignition is possible.
Conditions to avoid:
Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.
Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Observe national and local legal requirements.
