Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- Move any people not authorized 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'.
- 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.
- If possible, vacuum up the spilled material and/or absorb parts that can't be vacuumed up with inert materials (sand, earth, absorbent materials...) and place in suitable containers (separate liquids and solids) 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.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
- Ensure the premises where the substance is stored/handled are adequately ventilated, cool and dry.

Eye / face protection:
- Safety goggles or visor (EN 166)

Skin protection / of the Hand:
- Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm),PVC (0.7 mm) and other. 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 practical usage time depends on many conditions, see manufacturer's directions.

Skin protection / of the body:
- Use suitable protective clothing for chemical substances.

Respiratory protection:
- When vapors concentrations exceed permissible exposure limits, wear respiratory protection.
