Fire-fighting measures

· Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam.

· Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic gases cannot be excluded.

Hydrocarbons, carbondioxide and -monoxid.

· Advice for firefighters:

Protective equipment: Do not inhale explosion gases or combustion gases.

Additional information: Cool endangered receptacles with water spray. Self-protection first!

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Keep away from ignition sources.

After exceeding the emergency temperature  must be diluted with a suitable desentisation agent to < 10 %.

In case of further temperature should be cooled with waterspray from a safe distance.

Wear breathing apparatus with filter A during decomposition of materials.

Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Environmental precautions:

Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Large quantities should be diluted with suitable desensitation agent to a concentration below 10 % before disposal.

Soak up with absorbant material (e. g. Vermiculit) and dispose of in accordance with government regulations.

Reference to other sections:

In case of large spillage the environmental authority should be informed.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

· Keep receptacles tightly sealed.

· Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.

· Open and handle receptacle with care.

· Prevent formation of aerosols.

· Wear suitable respiratory protective device when decanting larger quantities without extractor facilities.

· Do not refill residue into storage receptacles.

· Restrict the quantity stored at the work place.

· Before break and at the end of work hands should be thoroughly washed.

· Only use tools made of suitable materials (e. g. polyethylene or stainless steel).

· The product must be preserved, stored and transported continously cool.

· Keep away from dirt, rust, chemicals in particular concentrated acids, alkalis and accelerators (e. g. heavy-metal compounds and amines).

· Oxidizing because of releasing oxygene.

· While using do not eat, drink or smoke.

· Do not generate flames or sparks.

· Keep product and emptied container away from heat and sources of ignition.

· Avoid shock and friction.

· Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

· Do not smoke.

Information about fire - and explosion protection:

· Protect from heat.

· Protect against electrostatic charges.

· Prevent impact and friction.

· Use explosion-proof apparatus / fittings and spark-proof tools.

· Dust can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.

· Substance/product is oxidizing when dry.

· Product is not explosive. However, formation of explosive air/dust mixtures are possible.

· Avoid open flames, sparks, direct sunlight and other sources of ignition.

· Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

· Storage: Pay attention to the special requirements of your local autorithies for storing dangerous goods.

· Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles: Store only in the original receptacle. Prevent any seepage into the ground. Use only receptacles specifically permitted for this substance/product.

· Information about storage in one common storage facility: Do not store or park organic peroxide together with heavy metal compounds and amines. Store away from foodstuffs, drinks and feeding stuffs.

· Further information about storage conditions: Keep container tightly sealed. Protect from heat and direct sunlight. Protect from contamination.

· Recommended storage temperature (To maintain quality): max.: +15°C

· Control temperature: +30°C

· Emergency temperature: +35°C

· Storage class: 5.2 "Organic Peroxides" (VCI Guideline)

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures:

· Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: Not required.

· Additional information: The lists valid during compilation of the SDS were used as basis.

2. Organisational protection measures:

Personal protective equipment: General protective andhygienic measures:

· The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.

· Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

· Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.

· Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

· Store protective clothing separately.

· Do not eat, drink, smoke or sniff while working.

· Use skin protection cream for skin protection.

· Be sure to clean skin thoroughly after work and before breaks.

3. Hand protection:

· Only use chemical-protective gloves with CE-labelling of category III.

· Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.

· Protective gloves.

· Material of gloves: The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Butyl rubber, BR; Fluorocarbon rubber (Viton); Nitrile rubber, NBR; Neoprene

· Penetration time of glove material The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

4. Feet protection: /

5. Body protection: Protective work clothing

6. Eye protection: Tightly sealed goggles

7. Respiratory protection:

· In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Use suitable respiratory protective device in case of insufficient ventilation.

· Filter P2

Stability and reactivity

· Chemical stability, thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:

SADT (Self Accelerating Decomposition Temperature) is the lowest temperature at which self accelerating decomposition may occur with substance in the packaging as used in transport. A dangerous self-accelerating decomposition reaction and, under certain circumstances, explosion or fire can be cause decomposition at and above the temperature. Contact with incompatible substances can cause decomposition at or below the SADT.

No decomposition if used and stored according to specifications.

To avoid thermal decomposition do not overheat.

· Possibility of hazardous reactions: Self-accelerating decomposition at SADT.

· Conditions to avoid: No further relevant information available.

· Incompatible materials: Rapid decomposition by dirt, rust, chemicals in particular concentrated acids, alkalis and accelerators (e. g. heavy-metal compounds and amines).

· Hazardous decomposition products: Hydrocarbons, carbondioxide and -monoxid.

No hazardous decomposition products if used and stored according to specifications.

· Additional information: Emergency procedures will vary depending on conditions. The customer should have an emergency response plan in place.

Disposal considerations

· Recommendation:After diluting with a suitable inert solid material to 10 %, the product must be supplied to a special treatment (e. g. thermal utilization) under observance of all official regulations. Must not be disposed together with household garbage. Do not allow product to reach sewage system.

· Waste disposal key: Please contact your hazardous waste disposers to assign the right EWC-(European waste catalog)-number.

· Uncleaned packaging: Recommendation: This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste.
