First-aid measures

General advice: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin: Get medical aid. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Get medical aid immediately. Call a poison control center.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.
Protection of first-aiders: If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus. Protective suit

Fire-fighting measures

General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, and full protective gear.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Will burn if involved in a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air., Thermal decomposition giving toxic products:, Carbon oxides (by combustion)
Extinguishing Media: Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

Advice for firefighters: Cool containers / tanks with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. Ensure
adequate ventilation. Use personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material.
Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby. Well
ventilate empty vats and tanks before entering.
Keep well away from naked flames. Provide electrical earthing of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres. Take
precautionary measures against static discharges.
Hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid exposure to vapor. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store away from heat and ignition sources. Store at ambient temperature. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide electrical earthing
of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres.
Incompatible products: Strong acids, Halogens, Oxidizing agents

General protective measures:
Ensure sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work areas
On each manufacture or use site, clearly-written substance-handling procedures should be
available, kept up-to-date and their implementation controlled.
Use material of high integrity for loading and unloading.
Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures.
Routine monitoring and inspections for leaks to reduce fugitive emissions.
Frequently monitor and control the working atmosphere.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Hand protection: PVC gloves
Eye/face protection: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles conform to European Standard EN166.
Skin and body protection: Protective suit
