First-aid measures

General advice
Take care of your own personal safety.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Keep patient warm and at rest.
Do not leave victims unattended.
Inhalation
Move victims into fresh air.
Place person on side in stable position if unconscious.

In case of difficulties in breathing, supply oxygen.
Employ artificial respiration if breathing ceases.
Consult a physician immediately.
Skin contact
In the event of frostbite, rinse copiously with water.
Do not remove clothing that adheres due to freezing.
Cover with sterile dressing and seek medical advice.
Eye contact
Flush affected eye immediately with water at ambient temperature.
Do not force eyelids open.
Consult an ophthalmologist.
Ingestion
Ingestion by swallowing is not considered a possible mode of exposure.
Notes to physician
Oxygen-displacing gas.
No specific antidote known.
cardio-vascular monitoring.
Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
high volume water jet
Specific hazards during fire fighting
Heavier than air vapour.
Formation of flammable or explosive vapour/air mixtures possible.
Keep all ignition sources out of area
In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.
Closed container may rupture if strongly heated.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
In the case of respirable dust and/or fumes, use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Heavier than air vapour.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Ensure good room ventilation at floor level too.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, drainage systems, stretches of water, soil.
Avoid penetration into drainage system or in rooms situated at a lower level because of danger of explosion.
Issue an immediate alarm report to the company environmental protection department if the product unintentionally leaves the production area.
Methods for cleaning up
taking special safety precautions
Confine and allow to evaporate.

Handling and storage

Handling
Safe handling advice
Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Provide good ventilation or extraction.
Ensure good room ventilation at floor level too.
Observe special instructions applicable to compressed gases.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static charges, keep away from sources of ignition.
Explosion protection equipment required.
Temperature class
T 2
Storage
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Keep away from direct sunlight.
Suitable materials mild steel
Advice on common storage
Observe prohibition against storing together!

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Use closed-system units.
If contact with gases or vapours cannot be excluded: Provide good ventilation or extraction.
Occupational exposure controls
Further information
ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industry Hygienists)
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
If concentrations in the breathed air are low:
Respirator with brown AX-type filter
Put on Respiratory protective equipment independent of surrounding air with high gas/vapour concentrations.
Hand protection
Glove material suitable protective gloves, e.g. nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) gloves, leather gloves, heat insulating
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).
Eye protection
close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles) or face protection
Skin and body protection
Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace involved.
Hygiene measures
Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.
Observe the rules usually applicable when handling chemicals.
Protective measures
Wear suitable protective clothing.
full protective suit, if necessary
Environmental exposure controls
see section 6.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Materials to avoid
strong oxidizing agents, chlorine, oxygen

Hazardous decomposition products
In case of fire or thermal decomposition production of, for example, Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide (CO2)

Hazardous reactions
Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Disposal considerations

With respect to local regulations, e.g. incineration via flare system.
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
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.
