First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing. First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, foam, dry extinguishing media
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing
water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Fire debris must be disposed of in
accordance with offical regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective clothing. Ensure adequate
ventilation.
Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
StorageSuitable materials for containers: Low density polyethylene (LDPE), glass, High density polyethylene
(HDPE), aluminum, Stove-lacquer RDL 50
Further information on storage conditions: Protect from air. Containers should be stored tightly sealed
in a dry place. Protect against heat.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
none
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,
corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended.
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep away from food, drink
and animal feeding stuffs. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Store work clothing separately
