First-aid measures

Skin contact
Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Do not use organic solvents.
Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. In case of eye irritation, seek medical attention.
Move to fresh air. In case of irritation of respiratory system or mucous membranes, seek medical attention. In case of
indisposition, seek medical attention. In case of prolonged exposure, seek medical attention.
Immediately give plenty (> 500 ml) of water (if possible charcoal slurry). In case of spontaneous vomiting be sure that
vomitus can freely drain due to danger of suffocation. Give water repeatedly. Artificial induction of vomiting should
be restricted to first aid staff. Give nothing by mouth in cases of unconsciousness or convulsion. Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam, Dry powder
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
High volume water jet
Exposure hazards
Contaminated water from fire hoses or sprinklers, etc., must be prevented from draining into watercourses, sewers, or
the ground water. Sufficient measures must be taken to retain water used for extinguishing. Contaminated water and
soil must be disposed of in conformity with local regulations.
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear full protective clothing. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Combustion products
Oxides of carbon; Oxides of nitrogen (NOx); Oxides of phosphorus; Hydrogen cyanide; Toxic gases/vapours

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Do not inhale or ingest. Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system.
Methods for cleaning up
Use mechanical handling equipment. Collect the spilled product into suitable containers, which must be tightly sealed
and properly labelled. Avoid dust formation.

Handling and storage

Handle and open container with care. Avoid dust formation and ignition sources. Ensure good local exhaust
ventilation. Do not eat, drink or smoke at the workplace.
Keep away from food and drink. Store in the original container securely closed.
Danger! Explosion risk. Risk of explosion if an air-dust mixture forms. Avoid creating dusty conditions. Empty only
into earthed containers. If container is larger than 2000 liter in volume, or when flammable solvents are present inert
container or use a system otherwise designed to prevent or contain an explosion -- seek expert advice.

Disposal considerations

Waste from residues / unused products
Residual chemical should be disposed by incineration or by other modes of disposal in compliance with local
Contaminated packaging
Contaminated packaging material should be treated equivalent to residual chemical. Clean packaging material should
be subjected to waste management schemes (recovery recycling, reuse) according to local legislation.
