Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel
Protective equipment: Gloves. face shield. protective clothing. Contact with walking surface may result in formation of slippery film/falling hazard.
Emergency procedures:Wash contaminated clothing immediately. Keep public away from danger area.

For emergency responders
Protective equipment:Wear protective gloves/protective clothing and eye/face protection.
Emergency procedures:Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothes.

Environmental precautions

Prevent soil and water pollution. Prevent spreading in sewers.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For containment:Contain leaking substance, pump over in suitable containers. Small quantities of liquid spill: take up in non-combustible absorbent material and shovel into container for disposal.
Methods for cleaning up:Contain leaking substance, pump over in suitable containers. Clean up any spills as soon as possible, using an absorbent material to collect it. Collect in closed and suitable containers for disposal. To clean the floor and all objects contaminated by this material, use plenty of water. Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
Other information:Comply with local regulations for disposal.
