First-aid measures

General advice
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible).
If inhaled
Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapours. Consult a physician after significant exposure.
In case of skin contact
Wash off with soap and water.
In case of eye contact
Immediately flush eye(s) with plenty of water.
If swallowed
Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray, Dry powder, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Unsuitable extinguishing media
High volume water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting
Dangerous gases or fumes may occur in case of fire.
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.
Further information
Standard procedure for chemical fires. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Special precautions
Danger of slipping after spill or leakage. Spilling onto the container's outside will make container slippery.
Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions
Avoid subsoil penetration.
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Use mechanical handling equipment. The material taken up must be disposed of in accordance with regulations. If they get dirty, wash clothes. If equipment gets dirty, clean using a surfactant solution. Do not allow washing water to get into the environment. Dispose of it instead via the drains.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling
Avoid inhalation, ingestion and contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from combustible material. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
No smoking.

Requirements for storage areas and containers
No special storage conditions required. Keep in a well-ventilated place.
Storage class (TRGS 510) 10: Combustible liquids not in Storage Class 3
container material suitable materials: Stainless steel

7.3 Specific end use(s)



ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ESPECIALLY FOR USE AS HEAT TRANSFER FLUID:

Advice on safe handling:
Follow advice in the 'Marlotherm® Heat Transfer Fluids' product brochure and in DIN 4754 (heat transfer systems using organic heat transfer fluids).
During the use at elevated temperatures thermal decomposition leads to the formation of low-boiling and high-boiling secondary products.
During removal of low boiling decomposition products with potential highly flammable properties from the system, appropriate risk management measures for flammable liquids have to be applied – especially when they are concentrated and collected. Risk management measurements for flammable liquids are at least: Take precautionary measures against static discharge. Ground/bond container and receiving equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Use explosion-proof electrical/ ventilating/ lighting/ equipment. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. - No smoking. Keep container tightly closed. Wear protective gloves/ protective clothing/ eye protection/ face protection.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Spontaneous combustion can occur should the product come into contact with hot fibre glass or mineral fibre insulations (e.g. in case of leackages),
especially when exposed to atmospheric oxygen (e.g. removal of insulation panels).
The use of foam glass as an insulating material can reduce the risk of such spontaneous combustion.
Insulation material soaked with the product must be replaced with new insulation material as soon as possible.

EUROPEAN OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
no data available

Respiratory protection No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are
exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing
apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance
with EN 141.
Hand protection The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other., 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., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

gloves suitable for permanent contact:
Material: Fluorinated rubber
Break through time: >= 480 min
Material thickness: 0.4 mm


Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex
Break through time: >= 480 min
Material thickness: 0.35 mm


gloves suitable for splash protection:
Material: Polyvinylchloride
Break through time: >= 60 min
Material thickness: 0.5 mm


unsuitable gloves
Material: Natural rubber/natural latex, Polychloroprene

Eye protection Tightly fitting safety goggles
Hygiene measures General industrial hygiene practice.
Protective measures Avoid contact with eyes. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product
Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.
waste code of the European Union: EWC
A waste code in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) may not be assigned to this product since it admits of a classification only when the consumer uses it for some purpose. The waste code must be determined in agreement with the regional waste disposal authority or company.
