First-aid measures

Inhalation: No hazards which require special first aid measures.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water. In case of persistent skin irritation, consult a physician.
Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. In case of persistent eye irritation, consult a physician.
Ingestion: No hazards which require special first aid measures. Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth. Drink plenty of water. Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
May evolve oxides of carbon (COx) under fire conditions. May evolve oxides of nitrogen (NOx) under fire
conditions.In the event of a spill, prevent material and fire water from entering sewers or waterways.

SPECICAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE FIGHTERS
Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS
Restrict access to area as appropriate until clean-up operations are complete. Use personal protective equipment. Stop or reduce any leaks if it is
safe to do so. Ventilate spill area if possible. Remove sources of ignition. Ensure clean-up is conducted by trained personnel only. Do not touch
spilled material. Have emergency equipment (for fires, spills, leaks, etc.) readily available. Notify appropriate government, occupational health and
safety and environmental authorities.

METHODS FOR CLEANING UP
SMALL SPILLS: Soak up spill with absorbent material. Place residues in a suitable, covered, properly labeled container. Wash affected area.
LARGE SPILLS: Contain liquid using absorbent material, by digging trenches or by diking. Reclaim into recovery or salvage drums or tank truck for
proper disposal. Clean contaminated surfaces with water or aqueous cleaning agents. Contact an approved waste hauler for disposal of
contaminated recovered material. Dispose of material in compliance with regulations

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Prevent substance from entering sewers or waterways.

Handling and storage

HANDLING:
Do not get in eyes, on skin, on clothing. Do not take internally. Use with adequate ventilation. Do not breathe aerosols. Keep the containers closed
when not in use. Have emergency equipment (for fires, spills, leaks, etc.) readily available. Ensure all containers are labeled. Do not use, store, spill orpour near heat, sparks or open flame.
STORAGE CONDITIONS:
Store in suitable labeled containers. Store the containers tightly closed. Store away from heat and sources of ignition. Have appropriate fire
extinguishers available in and near the storage area.
SUITABLE CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL:
Carbon Steel C1018, Stainless Steel 304, Stainless Steel 316L, Surface-modified HDPE (high density polyethylene), Perfluoroelastomer, TFE, FEP (encapsulated), Compatibility with Plastic Materials can vary; it is recommended that compatibility is tested prior to use.
UNSUITABLE CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL:
Neoprene, Nitrile, EPDM

Exposure controls / personal protection

ENGINEERING MEASURES
The use of local exhaust ventilation is recommended to control emissions near the source. Laboratory samples
should be handled in a fumehood. Provide mechanical ventilation of confined spaces

GENERAL ADVICE
The use and choice of personal protection equipment is related to the hazard of the substance, the workplace and the way the substance is handled.
In general, as a minimum precaution safety glasses with side-shields and work clothes protecting arms, legs and body should be used.
In addition any person visiting an area where this substance is handled should at least wear safety glasses with side-shields. The applicable
European standard can be found in EN 166.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION
At ambient temperature none needed for vapour. If substance is heated or if aerosol generation is likely, use of a half face filter mask. A suitable
filter material depends on the amount and type of chemicals being handled. Consider the use of filter type: A-P. The applicable European standard
can be found in EN 140, EN 137, EN 143 and EN 14387. In event of emergency or planned entry into unknown concentrations a positive pressure, full-
face piece SCBA should be used. If respiratory protection is required, institute a complete respiratory protection program including selection, fit
testing, training, maintenance and inspection.

HAND PROTECTION
When handling this substance, use chemical gloves. The choice of work glove depends on work conditions and what chemicals are handled, but
under light handling conditions consider using gloves made from PVC. Gloves should be replaced immediately if signs of degradation are observed. The applicable European standard can be found in EN 374.

SKIN PROTECTION
See general advice. The applicable European standard can be found in EN ISO 20345.

EYE PROTECTION
Wear chemical splash goggles. The applicable European standard can be found in EN 166.

Stability and reactivity

STABILITY
Stable under normal conditions.

HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION
Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

CONDITIONS TO AVOID
Heat

MATERIALS TO AVOID
Contact with strong oxidizers (e.g. chlorine, peroxides, chromates, nitric acid, perchlorate, concentrated oxygen,
permanganate) may generate heat, fires, explosions and/or toxic vapors.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS
Under fire conditions: Oxides of carbon, Oxides of nitrogen,

Disposal considerations

Dispose of wastes in an approved incinerator or waste treatment/disposal site, in accordance with all applicable
regulations. Do not dispose of wastes in local sewer or with normal garbage. This substance is ashless and can be
burned directly in appropriate equipment. Any chemical waste is a potential environmental pollutant and is NOT
suitable for disposal via ground, municipal sewers, drains, natural streams or rivers. Empty drums should be taken for recycling, recovery,
or disposal through a suitably qualified or licensed contractor
