Rinse mouth with water.

Keep respiratory tract clear.

Do NOT induce vomiting.

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.


Unsuitable extinguishing media:

High volume water jet.


Specific hazards during firefighting:

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.


Special protective equipment for firefighters:

In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.


Further information:

In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.

Standard procedure for chemical fires.

Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.

Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Use a water spray to cool fully closed containers.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Use personal protective equipment.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Evacuate personnel to safe areas.


Environmental precautions:

Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.


Methods for cleaning up:

Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations.

Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:

Avoid formation of aerosol.

Use personal protective equipment.

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms.

Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.


Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

Do not spray on a naked flame or any incandescent material. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.


Hygiene measures:

When using do not eat or drink. When using do not smoke. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.


Requirements for storage areas and containers:

No smoking. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Observe label precautions. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.


Advice on common storage:

No special restrictions on storage with other products.


Further information on storage stability:

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Tightly fitting safety goggles.

Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.


Hand protection:

Take note of the information given by the producer concerning permeability and break through times, and of special workplace conditions (mechanical strain, duration of contact). Wear chemicals-resistant gloves, e.g. safety gloves of nitril (thickness 0.4mm) or of butyl rubber (thickness 0.7mm).


Skin and body protection:

Impervious clothing.

Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at the work place.


Respiratory protection :

Not required; except in case of aerosol formation.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity and chemical stability:

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.


Hazardous reactions:

No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.



Conditions to avoid:

Heat, flames and sparks.


Hazardous decomposition products:

No hazardous decomposition products are known.
