First-aid measures


- Move the person away from the contaminated area.

- If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration and seek medical attention.


- Wash with water.

- Remove all contaminated clothing and footwear.

- Use appropriate protective equipment when treating a contaminated person.

- Seek medical treatment in case of complaints.


- Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes (at least 15 minutes). Remove contact lenses. Continue rinsing.

- Protect unharmed eye.

- Call a doctor immediately.

- Rinse with running water whilst keeping the eyes wide open (at least 15 minutes).

- If irritation persists, consult a doctor. Show this sheet to the doctor.


- Never attempt to induce vomiting. Do not give anything to drink but rinse mouth thoroughly with water.


- Ensure adequate ventilation of the working area.

- Respiratory protection with a particle filter if dust from solid is present.

- Appropriate gloves.

- Goggles.

- Protective clothing.


- Use appropriate protective equipment when treating a contaminated person.

- Place contaminated clothing in a sealed bag for disposal.

Fire-fighting measures


- Suitable: use extinguishing media suitable to surrounding fire conditions.

- Not suitable: None. If there is a fire close by, use suitable extinguishing agents.


- Burning can produce irritating toxic and obnoxious fumes.

- Use water spray to cool containers.


- Ensure adequate ventilation of the working area.

- Personal protective equipment:

     - Safety spectacles

     - Goggles

     - Suitable protective clothing

     - Appropriate gloves

Accidental release measures


- Do not allow product to enter drains. Prevent further spillage if safe.


- Recovery:

    - For solid matter: Collect up the product and place it in a spare container, suitably labelled.

    - For liquid matter: Absorb with inert, absorbent material. Sweep up. Transfer to suitably labelled container for disposal.

- Cleaning/Decontamination: Clean spillage area thoroughly with lime and flush to drain with plenty of water, observing any local regulations.

Handling and storage


- Technical measures: Avoid contact with eyes and skin.

- Measures: Adopt best Manual Handling considerations when handling, carrying and dispensing.

- Safe handling advice: Only use in well-ventilated areas.


- Storage conditions recommended: Stable under normal storage conditions.

- Incompatible products: Strong alkalis and metals.

- Packaging: Product must only be kept in the supplier's packaging.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: Avoid creating mist or spray. Avoid splashing. Either local exhaust or general room ventilation is usually required. Emergency safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure. Minimise exposure by partial enclosure of the operation or equipment and provide extract ventilation at openings.

Personal protective equipment: Protective goggles. Gloves.

Hand protection: Wear protective gloves. PVC. EN374.

Eye protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields. Use splash goggles when eye contact due to splashing is possible. EN166.

Respiratory protection: A properly fitted respirator with acid/mist cartridges is recommended in instances where exposures may be exceeded. EN 12083.

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity: Thermal decomposition generates: Corrosive vapours.

- Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.

- Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

- Conditions to avoid: Avoid excessive heat or cold.

- Incompatible materials: May react violently with alkalis. May be corrosive to metals.

- Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition generates: Sulphur oxides.

Disposal considerations

- Waste treatment methods: Disposal should be carried out with lime under controlled conditions at a licensed waste processor.

- Waste disposal recommendations: Dispose in a safe manner in accordance with local/national regulations.

- Ecology - waste materials: Avoid release to the environment.

- EURLW code: For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) should be used.
