First-aid measures

INHALATION
Remove from further exposure. For those providing assistance, avoid exposure to yourself or others. Use adequate respiratory protection. If respiratory irritation, dizziness, nausea, or unconsciousness occurs, seek immediate medical assistance. If breathing has stopped, assist ventilation with a mechanical device or use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

SKIN CONTACT
Wash contact areas with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. For hot product: Immediately immerse in or flush affected area with large amounts of cold water to dissipate heat. Cover with clean cotton sheeting or gauze and get prompt medical attention.

EYE CONTACT
Flush thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes. Get immediate medical assistance. If medical assistance is not immediately available, flush an additional 15 minutes.

INGESTION
Give one or two glasses of water if patient is alert and able to swallow. Seek immediate medical attention. Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Appropriate Extinguishing Media: Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.

FIRE FIGHTING
Fire Fighting Instructions: Evacuate area. Prevent run-off from fire control or dilution from entering streams, sewers or drinking water supply. Fire-fighters should use standard protective equipment and in enclosed spaces, self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Use water spray to cool fire exposed surfaces and to protect personnel.

Unusual Fire Hazards: Hazardous material. Firefighters should consider protective equipment indicated in Section 8.

Hazardous Combustion Products: None.

FLAMMABILITY PROPERTIES
Flash Point [Method]: >105C (221F)
Flammable Limits (Approximate volume % in air): LEL: 1.1 %V UEL: 6.6 %V
Autoignition Temperature: N/D

Accidental release measures

NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES
In the event of a spill or accidental release, notify relevant authorities in accordance with all applicable regulations.

PROTECTIVE MEASURES
Avoid contact with spilled material. Warn or evacuate occupants in surrounding and downwind areas if required, due to toxicity or flammability of the material. See Section 5 for fire fighting information. See the Hazard Identification Section for Significant Hazards. See Section 4 for First Aid Advice. See Section 8 for Personal Protective Equipment.

SPILL MANAGEMENT
Land Spill: Stop leak if you can do so without risk. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Prevent dust cloud. Small Dry Spills: With clean shovel, place material into clean, dry container and cover loosely; move containers from spill area. Small Spills: Absorb with earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers for later disposal.

Water Spill: Stop leak if you can do so without risk. Confine the spill immediately with booms. Warn other shipping. Remove from the surface by skimming or with suitable absorbents. Seek the advice of a specialist before using dispersants.

Water spill and land spill recommendations are based on the most likely spill scenario for this material; however, geographic conditions, wind, temperature, (and in the case of a water spill) wave and current direction and speed may greatly influence the appropriate action to be taken. For this reason, local experts should be consulted. Note: Local regulations may prescribe or limit action to be taken.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Large Spills: Dyke far ahead of liquid spill for later recovery and disposal. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. For Large Spills: Cover spill with plastic sheet or tarpaulin to minimise spreading.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use and with adequate ventilation.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Respiratory protection: In the case of vapour formation use a respirator with an approved filter. The applicable European standard can be found in EN 14605.

Hand protection: Solvent-resistant gloves Before removing gloves clean them with soap and water. 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. The selected protective gloves have to satisfy the specificationsof EU Directive 89/686/EEC and the standard EN 374 derived from it.

Eye/face protection : Eye wash bottle with pure water. Tightly fitting safety goggles. Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing
problems. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. The applicable European standard can be found in
EN 166.

Skin and body protection : Impervious clothing. Choose body protection according to the amount and concentration of the dangerous substance at
the work place. The applicable European standard can be found in EN 140, EN 137, EN 143, EN 14387.
