First-aid measures


Remove from area to fresh air.

Seek medical attention if respiratory irritation develops or if breathing becomes difficult.


After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of soap and water.

Seek medical attention if irritation develops and persists.


For eye contact, flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.

Hold eyelids apart to ensure rinsing of the entire surface of the surface of the eyes and lids with water.

Get medical attention.


Do not induce vomiting.

If vomiting occurs naturally, have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration.

Call a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Appropriate fire-fighting equipment:

Foam, carbon dioxide (CO2), powder, water spray.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In combustion emits toxic fumes of carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide.

Advice for firefighters

In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Water mist may be used to cool closed containers.

Use personal protective equipment to protect skin/eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Move any people not authorised to contain the emergency out of the area.

Avoid coming in contact with the substance or handling containers without adequate protection.

Use the personal protective equipment described in section 'Exposure controls/personal protection'.

Use a respirator in the event of emissions/spillage of large quantities.

Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Remove all incompatible materials as outlined in section 'Stability and reactivity'.

Environmental precautions

Contain the spillage as far as possible.

Prevent spilled materials getting into the drainage system, wells, surface water or groundwater.

In the case of leaks into a water course, drains, or if the product has contaminated the ground or vegetation, contact the local authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Do not use equipment that can generate sources of ignition when cleaning.

Clean the spilled material mechanically and put it in an appropriate container for disposal in accordance with section 'Disposal considerations'. After collection, ventilate and clean the affected area with water before granting access.

Do not flush the water used for cleaning into watercourses or down drains.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Recommendations for safe use:

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Avoid breathing vapours.

Advice on general occupational hygiene:

Do no eat, drink or smoke when using this product.

Wash face and hands thoroughly after handling.

Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Eliminate all sources of combustion.

Keep container hermetically closed in a dry and well ventilated environment.

Do not store near heat sources or expose to direct sunlight, to preserve the quality of the product.

Keep away from incompatible materials (see Section 'Stability and reactivity').

Keep away from food, feed and beverages.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:

Use preferably in a closed loop, or provide adequate localized extraction and ventilation systems.

Eye / face protection:

Goggles or protective visor.

Skin protection / of the Hand:

The material the gloves are made of must be impermeable and stable when in contact with the substance. No specific information available on the suitability of the material and thickness of the gloves. Consult the glove manufacturer for specific information on the suitability of the gloves. Replace the gloves in the case of internal contamination, when punctured, or if external contamination cannot be removed. The actual duration of protection depends on the conditions of use.

Skin protection / of the body:

Wear protective clothing resistant to chemical substances.

Respiratory protection:

Mask with A type filter for vapours and organic gases with a boiling point> 65°C. (EN 149)

Environmental exposure controls:

See sections 'Accidental release measures' and 'Disposal considerations'.

Stability and reactivity


In combustion emits toxic fumes of carbon dioxide / carbon monoxide.

Chemical stability

Stable under normal conditions

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Not applicable.

Conditions to avoid

Heat. Sources of ignition.

Incompatible materials

Strong oxidising agents. Strong acids. Strong chemical bases.

Hazardous decomposition products

See section 'Fire-fighting measures'

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Recycle if possible, or send to an authorized incinerator. Follow the instructions in sections 'Accidental release measures' and 'Handling and storage' when handling waste spillages, taking the steps indicated in the same sections. We recommend recycling containers instead of disposal. Observe the local and national legislation in force.
