- Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

--Additional information

- Cool endangered containers with water spray jet.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

- Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Environmental precautions:

- Do not allow to enter drainage system, surface or ground water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

- Ensure adequate ventilation.

- Absorb with liquid-binding material (sand, diatomite, acid binders, universal binders, sawdust).

- Send for recovery or disposal in suitable containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

--Personal protective Equipment

--General protective and hygienic measures

- The usual precautionary measures should be adhered to general rules for handling chemicals.

- Use skin protection cream for preventive skin protection.

- Be sure to clean skin thoroughly after work and before breaks.

- Take off immediately all contaminated clothing

- Wash hands during breaks and at the end of the work.

- Store protective clothing separately.

--Breathing equipment:

- In case of brief exposure or low pollution use breathing filter apparatus. In case of intensive or longer exposure use breathing apparatus that is independent of circulating air.

- Filter A (EN 14387)

--Protection of hands:

- Only use chemical-protective gloves with CE-labelling of category III (EN 374).

- Heat protection gloves (in case of elevated storage- and transport temperature).

--Material of gloves

-Nitrile rubber

. Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0,425 mm

. Value for the permeation: 60-120 min

Fluorocarbon rubber (Viton) / Butyl rubber

. Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0,7 mm

. Value for the permeation: > 480 min

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Penetration time of glove material

- The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

As protection from splashes gloves made of the following materials are suitable:

- Butyl rubber, BR

- Nitril rubber, NBR

Eye protection:

- Tightly sealed safety glasses (EN 166)

Body protection:

- Protective work clothing (EN340)

Stability and reactivity


- No further relevant information available.

Thermal decomposition / conditions to be avoided:

- No decomposition if used according to specifications.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

- No dangerous reactions known

Conditions to avoid

- No further relevant information available.

Incompatible materials:

- No further relevant information available.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods


- Remove according to local authority recommendations, e.g. convey to a suitable incinerator.

--European waste catalogue

- The disposal of waste within the EU is regulated by Directive 2008/98/EC

- The waste code classification is to be carried out according to the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) specifically for each branch of industry and each type of process.

--Uncleaned packagings:


- Disposal must be made according to official regulations.
