First-aid measures

First aider needs to protect himself. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.
4.1 Description of first aid measures
Move subject to fresh air and keep him calm. See a physician.
Skin Contact:
If skin irritation occurs consult a physician. Wash off immediately with soap and water.
Eye contact:
Flush eyes thoroughly with a large amount of water and consult a physician.
Do not induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Causes eye irritation. Skin sensitizer
4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
No data available.
Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray. foam Dry chemical. Carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures:
Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Assure sufficient ventilation. Use personal protective clothing. Keep away sources of ignition. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/mist/aerosol. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:
No data available.
6.1.2 For emergency responders:
No data available.
6.2 Environmental Precautions:
Prevent product from getting into drains/surface water/groundwater.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Larger quantities: Take up mechanically (by pumping). Smaller quantities and/or residues: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid absorbent, universal absorbent or sawdust). Dispose of in accordance with regulations.
6.4 Reference to other sections:
For personal protection see section 8. For disposal considerations see section 13.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:
Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Take action to prevent static discharges. In the event of fire, cool the endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability.Protect from the action of light.Can polymerize with intense heat release.
7.3 Specific end use(s):
We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported in Section 1.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection:
tightly fitting goggles
Hand Protection:
Material: Butyl rubber.
Break-through time: 480 min
Glove thickness: 0.3 mm
Guideline: EN 374
Additional Information: Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., The above mentioned hand protection is based on special knowledge of the chemical and the intended handling of this product, however, it still may not be suited for all workplaces. A qualified hazard assessment should be made prior to the onset of work in order to determine the suitability of gloves for specific working environments and processes., Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.
Skin and Body Protection:
On handling of larger quantities: face mask, chemical-resistant boots and apron
Respiratory Protection:
Breathing apparatus in case of high concentrations short term: filter appliance, filter A

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods
General information:
Dispose of waste and residues in accordance with local authority requirements.
Disposal methods:
Waste is hazardous. It must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations after consultation of the competent local authorities and the disposal company in a suitable and licensed facility. Strictly controlled conditions during disposal or treatment to air, wastewater and waste. Do not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant Bring wastewater containing AOX for professional disposal. The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
Contaminated Packaging:
Contaminated packages must be emptied as good as possible. They may then be recycled after proper cleaning. Packages that cannot be cleaned must be disposed of in the same way as the substance.
