First-aid measures

General advice:
take care to self-protect by avoiding becoming contaminated
Move contaminated patient(s) out of the dangerous area
If symptoms persist, call a physician
Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance
Do not breathe dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray

Eye Contact:
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water, also under the eyelids
Keep eye wide open while rinsing
If symptoms persist, call a physician

Skin Contact:
Consult a physician if necessary
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes

Consult a physician
If not breathing, give artificial respiration
Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapors

Rinse mouth
If symptoms persist, call a physician
Do NOT induce vomiting

Protection of First-aiders:
Use personal protective equipment

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Cool containers / tanks with water spray, Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO), Water spray, Alcohol-resistant foam
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases:
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air
Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks)

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit
Other Information:
Cool containers / tanks with water spray
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal Precautions:
Remove all sources of ignition
Heat, flames and sparks
Ensure adequate ventilation
Use personal protective equipment
Evacuate personnel to safe areas
Take precautionary measures against static discharges

Advice for emergency responders:
Immediately evacuate personnel to safe areas

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions:
Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas

Methods and materials for cleaning up

Methods for Cleaning Up:
Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13)
Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on Safe Handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition
Take precautionary measures against static discharges
Keep container tightly closed
Wear personal protective equipment

Prevention of fire and explosion:
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition Design installations (machinery and equipment) to prevent burning product from spreading (tanks, retention systems, interceptors (traps) in drainage systems). Operate only on cold and degassed tanks in ventilated premises (to avoid risk of explosion)
Do not use compressed air for filling, discharging or handling Empty containers may contain flammable or explosive vapours.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Technical Measures/Storage Conditions:
Keep in properly labeled containers
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place
Protect from light

Specific end use(s)
Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location
