Inhalation Remove casualty to fresh air and provide warmth and rest; if necessary, seek medical
advice.
Skin contact Immediately clean areas of skin affected with soap and plenty of water; if necessary seek
medical advice.
Eye contact Immediately wash out eye thoroughly with plenty of water until irritation subsides; consult
an eye specialist/ophthalmologist.

Fire-fighting measures

General hazard THE PRODUCT IS FLAMMABLE
Extinguishing media To suit local surroundings (e.g. water spray, carbon dioxide, foam, chemical powder, sand,
earth)
Extinguishing media not to
be used
None known. Do not use earth for large fires
Special exposure hazards Decomposition products released in a fire should be considered as probably harmful if
inhaled.
Protective equipment Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information Avoid run-off water entering the drains (e.g. use barriers). Vapours may form explosive
mixtures with air. Vapour is heavier than air and may spread along the ground to ignition
sources.

Accidental release measures

Methods for cleaning up Adhere to personal protective measures. Remove all sources of ignition - No Smoking!
Take up with absorbent material, e.g. sand, sawdust, into tightly closed containers. Label
container and dispose of as prescribed. Ensure that all equipment used when handling the
product is earthed.
Environmental
considerations
Do not allow to get into waste water or waterways; if this occurs, inform the relevant water
authority at once.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling Handle in accordance with good hygiene and safety practice. Keep away from
incompatible substances. Only use non-sparking equipment. And be aware of static
electricity.
Storage conditions Ensure adequate ventilation of the storage area. Keep containers tightly closed, cool and
dry. Keep away from incompatible substances. Store closed drums with bung in “up”
position. Vapour space above stored liquid may be flammable/explosive unless blanketed
with inert gas.
Further information Stainless steel packaging is recommended.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls There are no workplace exposure limit (WEL) values available. Comply with good practice
for the control of exposure.
Engineering controls Provide adequate ventilation (e.g. local exhaust ventilation).
Take measures against the build up of electrostatic charges
Personal protection Observe normal standards for handling chemicals.
Avoid inhalation, and contact with eyes and skin
It is recommended that those with a medical history of sensitisation should not handle this
product.
Wear personal protective equipment appropriate to the task (see below)
Eye protection Safety goggles
Skin protection PVC or neoprene gloves (also consider your own risk assessment; e.g.
breakthrough times, rates of diffusion and degradation, tasks
undertaken)
Respiratory protection Approved respirator (e.g. EN 149:2001 FFP3) if ventilation is
insufficient.
Other protection Protective overall

Stability and reactivity

Stability Stable under normal conditions of handling. May form peroxides in air.
Thermal decomposition Not determined
Conditions to avoid Sources of ignition
Material to avoid Oxidising agents, acids, alkalies, ammonia, amines, sodium, zinc, magnesium and their
alloys, halides.
Hazardous reactions None known
Hazardous decomposition
products
Irritating and toxic vapours following fires

Disposal considerations

Disposal should be carried out In accordance with EU Hazardous Waste Regulations,
Contaminated packaging Treat empty containers as the product or if possible wash out thoroughly and recycle. dispose of washings as hazardous waste.
