First-aid measures

General information

Immediate medical attention is required. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to protect themselves. Keep victim warm. In case of shortness of breath, give oxygen.

Description of first aid measures


Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim inhaled the substance. Induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device.

Skin contact

In case of contact, immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention immediately.

Eye contact

Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.


If material is ingested, immediately contact a physician or poison control centre. Have victim

rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is unconscious or

is having convulsions. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. If vomiting occurs naturally,

have victim lean forward to reduce risk of aspiration.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Corrosive effects. The product causes burns of eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Permanent eye  damage including blindness could result.

Indication of any immediate  medical attention and special treatment  needed. Symptoms may be delayed. If evacuation of stomach contents is necessary, use method least likely to cause aspiration. This material, if aspirated into the lungs, may cause chemical pneumonitis; treat the affected person


Fire-fighting measures

General fire hazards

Not available.

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Dry chemical, CO2, water spray or regular foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising  from the substance or mixture

Decomposition of this product may emit oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters

Not available.

Special firefighting procedures

Wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained positive pressure or pressure

demand breathing apparatus, and face mask. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without

risk. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible,

withdraw from area and let fire burn. ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in flame. Some of these

materials, if spilled, may evaporate leaving a flammable residue. In the event of fire and/or

explosion do not

breathe fumes. In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency  procedures

For non-emergency personnel Avoid contact with spilled material. For emergency  responders

Keep unnecessary personnel away. Ventilate closed spaces before entering. Do not touch damaged

containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Remove all sources

of ignition. Stay upwind.

Environmental precautions

Not available.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning  up

Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area).

Extinguish all flames in the vicinity. Should not be released into the environment. Prevent entry

into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later

disposal. Move the cylinder to a safe and open area if the leak is irreparable.

Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Move the cylinder to a safe and

open area if the leak is irreparable. Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite, sand or

earth to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal.

Never return spills to original containers for re-use. Clean up in accordance with all applicable


Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean contaminated surface

thoroughly. For waste disposal, see section 13.

Reference to other sections

See Section 8 for personal protective equipment. For waste disposal, see section 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not empty into drains.

Follow all SDS/label precautions even after container is emptied because they may retain product


Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Protect from moisture. Use care in handling/storage. Keep in a well-ventilated place. Store in a

closed container away from incompatible materials. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Keep container tightly closed. Keep the container dry. Keep this material away from food, drink and

animal feed.

Specific  end use(s)

Not available.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls

Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Good ventilation should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits.

Individual protection measures, such as personal  protective equipment

General information

Wear chemical protective equipment that is specifically recommended by the manufacturer. Eye wash fountain is recommended.

Eye/face protection

Wear chemical goggles.

Skin protection

- Hand protection

Protective gloves.  Solvent-resistant gloves (butylrubber). Permeation rate:

>480 min

Thickness: >0.7 mm

- Other

Wear suitable protective clothing.

Respiratory protection

Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). When workers are facing concentrations above the

exposure limit they must use appropriate certified respirators.
