First-aid measures

Inhalation. Remove to fresh air. Keep warm and at rest. Get medical attention.
Skin: Remove contaminated clothing. Immediately wash skin with soap and water. Get medical attention if skin cracking or redness occurs.
Eyes: Immediately flush eye with large quantities of water for at least 10 minutes holding the eye open. Avoid contaminating unaffected eye.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. Keep patient warm and at rest. Give 240-300 ml water to drink ( only if patient is conscious). Repeat if patient vomits. Get medical attention if patient is unwell. Get medical attention and show the product label.

Fire-fighting measures

Special hazards: Hazardous combustion products may include carbon monoxide.
Fire/explosion hazards: Combustible material. Burns but does not ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated.
Extinguishing media: Suitable: Alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, water mist. Unsuitable: Water in a jet.
Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Exposure controls and personal protection: Evacuate all non-essential personnel. Avoid eye and skin contact, and inhalation of vapour. Wear appropriate protective clothing. Wear respiratory protection. Ventilate area.
Environmental precautions: Keep away from drains, water and soil. Advise authorities if spilled material has entered water courses or sewer or has contaminated soil or vegetation.
Clean up methods: Absorb or contain liquid with sand, earth or spill control material. Collect and place in a labelled sealable container for subsequent safe disposal. Flush contaminated area with plenty of water. Put leaking containers in a labelled drum or overdrum.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid contact with skin. Do not breathe vapour. Only use in well ventilated areas. Keep container tightly closed when not in use. Provide emergency eye washing and shower facilities.
Storage: Storage area should be cool and dry. Keep away from direct sunlight. Keep in a well-ventilated place. Store in a bunded area. For containers use mild steel or stainless steel. Do not store in plastics or natural, butyl, polychloroprene or nitrile rubbers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure standards: EU agreed limit (IOELV) 10ppm (50.1mg/m3) (8hr TWA). Skin notation.
Technical control measures: Use local exhaust ventilation if concentrations in air could exceed occupational exposure standard.
Respiratory protection: Use positive pressure breathing mask if concentrations in air could exceed occupational exposure standard
Eye protection: Protective goggles with side-shields
Hand protection: Gloves made from butyl rubber, Neoprene™ rubber, Viton™ or nitrile rubber.
Body protection: Neoprene™ apron. Rubber boots.
Environmental protection: Defined as a volatile organic chemical under directive 99/13. No special limits apply.

Occupational Exposure Limit
Type of limit MEL (UK) 120 mg/m3

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under normal conditions. May form peroxides on prolonged exposure to air and light.
Conditions to avoid: High temperatures and sources of ignition. Prolonged exposure to air/oxygen and light.
Materials to avoid: Oxidising agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: Oxides of carbon on combustion.

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal: Dispose of as hazardous waste. Recover or recycle if possible. Otherwise incineration. Dispose of in accordance with all local regulations.
Container disposal: Drain container thoroughly. After draining, vent in a safe place. Send to drum recover or metal reclaimer.
