First-aid measures

General Advice:
Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Call a physician immediately.

Eye Contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.

Skin Contact:
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Inhalation:
Move to fresh air. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Ingestion:
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
- Pneumonia
- Lung oedema
- superficial burning sensation
- Lachrymation
- Shortness of breath
- Suffocation
- Eye disease

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media
- water spray
- Alcohol-resistant foam
- carbon dioxide (CO2)
- dry chemical

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
- Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
- Do NOT use water jet.

Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical
Specific hazards during fire fighting:
- May displace oxygen and cause rapid suffocation.
- The product will float on water and can be reignited on surface water.
- Flash back possible over considerable distance.

Hazardous combustion products:
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
- Carbon monoxide

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
- Wear an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus in addition to standard fire fighting gear.

Further information:
- In case of fire: Evacuate area. Fight fire remotely due to the risk of explosion.
- Flammable gas, may cause flash fire.
- Cool containers/tanks with water spray.
- If the product release cannot be shut off safely, allow the product to burn itself out.
- Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
- Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
- Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions:
- Avoid release to the environment.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up:
- Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
- Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
- Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
- Ensure adequate ventilation.
- Wash thoroughly after handling.
- Sudden Release of Pressure Hazard
- Use equipment rated for cylinder pressure.
- Protect container from physical shock.
- Pressurized container: protect from sunlight and do not ex-pose to temperatures exceeding 50 °C. Do not pierce or burn, even after use.
- May displace oxygen and cause rapid suffocation.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
- Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Hygiene measures:
- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Do not enter areas where used or stored until adequately ven-tilated. Do not store together with oxidizing and self-igniting products. Protect from sunlight. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Store in upright position only. Store locked up.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering Controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) 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. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Personal protection equipment
Eye protection:
- Safety glasses with side-shields
- Face-shield
- Always wear eye protection when the potential for inadvertent eye contact with the product cannot be excluded.

Hand protection
Remarks:
Nitrile rubber Neoprene gloves Protective gloves against cold The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specifica-tions of Regulation (EU) 2016/425 and the standard EN 374 derived from it. The break through time depends amongst other things on the material, the thickness and the type of glove and therefore has to be measured for each case.

Skin and body protection:
- Complete suit protecting against chemicals

Respiratory protection:
- If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentra-tions below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn.

Protective measures:
- Remove respiratory and skin/eye protection only after vapors have been cleared from the area.
- Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place.
- Use personal protective equipment as required.

Environmental exposure controls
Environmental precautions:
- Avoid release to the environment.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: None reasonably foreseeable.

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Hazardous reactions:
- Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire condi-tions.

Conditions to avoid
Conditions to avoid:
- Protect container from physical shock.
- Heat
- Exposure to sunlight.

Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid:
- Mercury
- Strong acids and oxidizing agents
- Halogenated compounds

Hazardous decomposition products
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Carbon monoxide
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product:
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging:
Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste han-dling site for recycling or disposal.
