First-aid measures

General advice: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.

If inhaled: Take the person into the fresh air and keep him warm, let him rest; if there is difficulty in breathing, medical advice is required.

In case of skin contact: In case of skin contact wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and plenty of water. Consult a doctor in the event of a skin reaction.

In case of eye contact: Hold the eyes open and rinse with preferably lukewarm water for a sufficiently long period of time (at least 10 minutes). Contact an ophthalmologist.

If swallowed: DO NOT induce the patient to vomit, medical advice is required.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam, extinguishing powder, in cases of larger fires, water spray should be used.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet Burning releases carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and traces of hydrogen

cyanide. In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Firemen must wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Do not allow contaminated extinguishing water to enter the soil, ground-water or surface waters.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Put on protective equipment (see chapter 8). Ensure adequate ventilation/exhaust extraction. Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions: Do not allow to escape into waterways, wastewater or soil.

Methods for cleaning up: Take up with absorbent for chemicals or, if necessary with dry sand and store in closed containers.

Additional advice: For further disposal measures see chapter "Disposal considerations".

Handling and storage


Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

In all workplaces or parts of the plant where high concentrations of aerosols and/or vapors may be generated (e.g. during pressure release, mold venting or when cleaning mixing heads with an air blast), appropriately located exhaust ventilation must be provided in such a way that the WEL is not exceeded. The air should be drawn away from the personnel handling the product. The efficiency of the exhaust equipment should be periodically checked.

Precautions should generally be taken against electrostatic charges according to the equipment used and the way the product is handled and packaged.


Keep container tightly closed and dry.

Storage temperature regarding personal safety: max. 50 °C.

VCI storage class (VCI = German Association of the Chemical Industry): 10

Exposure controls / personal protection

UK Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL), per EH40 document (Health & Safety Executive). If no UK value exists, EU exposure limits given where available.

No information on Exposure Limit Values necessary according to EC directive 2006/121/EG

Respiratory protection:

Unless the product is entirely enclosed, do not handle it until you have studied the respiratory precautions issued by the appropriate authority or accident prevention association. If vapors form, respirators must be used. Put on full-mask respirator with filter type ABEK.

Hand protection:

Protective gloves are recommended.

Nitrile rubber - NBR (>= 0.35 mm)

Breakthrough time not tested; dispose of immediately after contamination.

Conditionally suitable materials for protective gloves; EN 374-3:

Eye protection:

Wear eye/face protection.

Skin and body protection:

Wear suitable protective clothing.

Hygiene measures:

Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Keep working clothes separately. Change contaminated or soaked clothing immediately.

Safety precautions for handling freshly molded polyurethane parts:

Depending on the production parameters, any uncovered surfaces of polyurethane moldings produced using this raw material may contain traces of substances (e. g. starting and reaction products, catalysts, release agents) with hazardous characteristics. Skin contact with traces of these substances must be avoided. When demolding or otherwise handling freshly molded polyurethane parts, protective textile gloves must be worn as a minimum. Their palm and finger areas should preferably be coated on the outside with nitrilerubber, PVC or polyurethane.

Protective gloves should be changed daily. The wearing of protective clothing suited to the conditions normally encountered when handling freshly molded polyurethane parts is recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions: No hazardous reactions when used as directed.

Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products when stored and handled correctly.

Thermal decomposition: Does not occur until initial boiling point.

Disposal considerations

Dispose in accordance with applicable international, national and local laws, ordinances and statutes.

For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) should be used.

After containers have been emptied as thoroughly as possible (e.g. by pouring, scraping or draining until "drip-dry"), they can be sent to an appropriate collection point set up within the framework of the existing take-back scheme of the chemical industry. Containers must be recycled in compliance with national legislation and environmental regulations.
