First-aid measures

General advice
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance. Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation
Potential for exposure by inhalation if dusts or smoke are generated.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately (key words: burns in eye).

Ingestion
Rinse out mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Consult a physician immediately.
When dealing with caustic substances, notify emergency physician immediately.

Notes to physician
The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation; caustic substances result in quickly progressing deep tissue damage.
In the eye, caustic dusts or smoke cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, severe irritation, destruction, and ablation of the epithelium of the conjunctiva and cornea, corneal clouding, edema and ulcerations.
Danger! Possible loss of eyesight!
Superficial irritations and damage up to ulcerations and scarring develop on the skin.
After accidental absorption in the body, the pathology and clinical findings are dependent on the kinetics of the substance (quantity of absorbed substance, the absorption time, and the effectiveness of early elimination measures (first aid)/ excretion - metabolism).
A specific action of the substance is unknown.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, foam, dry powder

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
high volume water jet

Specific hazards during fire fighting
In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.
In the case of fire, the following hazardous smoke fumes may be produced:
Carbon oxides
nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Have ready/wear respiratory protection equipment.

Further information
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil, or stretches of water Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire. Contaminated fire-extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protective equipment

Environmental precautions
Prevent product from entering drains.
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil or stretches of water.

Methods for cleaning up
Use mechanical handling equipment.
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling

Safe handling advice

Disposal considerations

Product
With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
