First-aid measures

Inhalation : Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If

not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial

respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person

providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse

health effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and

get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing

such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Ingestion : Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air

and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been

swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to

drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not

induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs,

the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical

attention. If necessary, call a poison center or physician. Never give anything by

mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get

medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such

as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Skin contact : Wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.

Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear

gloves. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if adverse

health effects persist or are severe. If necessary, call a poison center or physician.

Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact : Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower

eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10

minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Protection of first-aiders : No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. It

may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear gloves.

Notes to physician : Symptomatic treatment and supportive therapy as indicated. Following severe

exposure the patient should be kept under medical review for at least 48 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.

Special exposure hazards : In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst.

Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if

there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable

training.

Hazardous thermal decomposition products : Decomposition products may include the following materials:

carbon dioxide

carbon monoxide

sulfur oxides

metal oxide/oxides

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters : Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained

breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure

mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves)

conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for

chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from

entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid breathing vapour or mist

. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is

inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions : Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains

and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental

pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods for cleaning up : Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach the release

from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined

areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.

Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand,

earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal

according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Handling and storage

Handling : Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Eating, drinking

and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and

processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and

smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering

eating areas. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Avoid

breathing vapour or mist. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative

made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty

containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Storage : Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from

direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible

materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and

sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully

resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers.

Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Packaging materials Recommended : Use original container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Recommended monitoring procedures : If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace

atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness

of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory

protective equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for

methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents and

national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous

substances.

Occupational exposure controls : No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to

control worker exposure to airborne contaminants. If this product contains

ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or

other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or

statutory limits.

Environmental exposure controls : Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure

they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some

cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment

will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Respiratory protection : In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Respirator selection

must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product

and the safe working limits of the selected respirator.

In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing apparatus with a combined filter (e.g. A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance with EN 141.

Hand protection : Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should

be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates

this is necessary.

gloves suitable for permanent contact: Material: butyl-rubber; Break through time: >= 480 min; Material thickness: >= 0.7 mm

gloves suitable for splash protection:Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex; Break through time: >= 30 min; Material thickness: >= 0.4 mm

Eye protection : Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk

assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists,

gases or dusts.
