First-aid measures

Inhalation:
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Ingestion:
Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Skin contact:
Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention in the event of any complaints or symptoms. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact:
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.

Large spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Small spill:
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Avoid release to the environment. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Storage:
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated
area, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Additional transport information

Additional transport information
Environmentally hazardous substance (GGVSE, RID/ADR).
Keep separated from foodstuffs.

The producer uses packaging for the product, which meets the requirements for products with a hazard potential as far as tightness and stability are concerned. Consequently transport is possible without increased danger as long as attention is paid to the usual measures such as stack height, protection against falling and correct labelling. In case of partially fractured containers, these must be kept closed on any transport, in order to prevent spillage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. Manufacture and use takes place under strictly controlled conditions. The substance is rigorously contained (production, use), appropriate risk management measures are applied and a management system is in place. An authorisation scheme covers the prosess and a procedure ensures that only trained and authorised persons handle the substance. Process procedures for containment during cleaning and maintenance have been accounted for in plant and engineering design as appropriate for the site. Procedures to ensure containment have been applied for all stages of production and processing. Occupational procedures have been assessed and are documented.
Recommended monitoring procedures:
If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal,
workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to
determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control
measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective
equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN
689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to
chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for
the determination of hazardous substances.

Exposure controls:
Occupational exposure controls: Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local
exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker
exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or
statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas,
vapor or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use
explosion-proof ventilation equipment.

Hygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical
products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the
end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used
to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated
clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety
showers are close to the workstation location.
Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying
with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicates this is
necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or
anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe
working limits of the selected respirator.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves or gauntlets complying with
an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling
chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
After contamination with product change the gloves immediately
and dispose of them according to relevant national and local
regulations
<1 hours (breakthrough time): PVC or rubber gloves .

Eye protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be
used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid
exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts.
Recommended: Tightly fitting safety goggles.

Environmental exposure controls: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be
checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of
environmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume
scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process
equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable
levels.
