First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice
First aider needs to protect himself.
After inhalation: fresh air. Immediately call in physician. If breathing stops: immediately apply artificial respiration, if necessary also oxygen.
In case of skin contact: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/ shower. Consult a physician.
After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water. Call in ophthalmologist.
After swallowing: caution if victim vomits. Risk of aspiration! Keep airways free. Pulmonary failure possible after aspiration of vomit. Call a physician immediately. Subsequently administer: activated charcoal (20 - 40 g in 10% slurry).

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
irritant effects, Cough, Shortness of breath, respiratory arrest, Dizziness, narcosis, agitation, spasms, inebriation, Nausea, Vomiting, Stomach/intestinal disorders, cardiovascular disorders, Headache, ataxia (impaired locomotor coordination)
Drying-out effect resulting in rough and chapped skin.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Laxative: Sodium sulfate (1 tablespoon/1/4 l water).

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Not combustible.
Ambient fire may liberate hazardous vapours.
Fire may cause evolution of:
Hydrogen chloride gas, Phosgene

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Further information
Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel: Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.
Advice for emergency responders:
Protective equipment see section Exposure controls/personal protection.

Environmental precautions
Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions (see sections Handling and storage and Stability and reactivity). Take up with liquid-absorbent material (e.g. Chemizorb® ). Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area. Do not inhale vapours.

Reference to other sections
Indications about waste treatment see section Disposal considerations.

Handling and storage

Handling and storage
Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
Work under hood. Do not inhale substance/mixture. Avoid generation of vapours/aerosols.
Observe label precautions.
Hygiene measures
Immediately change contaminated clothing. Apply preventive skin protection. Wash hands and face after working with substance.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given priority over the use of personal protective equipment.
See section Precautions for safe handling.

Individual protection measures
Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.

Eye/face protection
Safety glasses

Hand protection
full contact:
Glove material: Viton (R)
Glove thickness: 0,70 mm
Break through time: > 480 min

splash contact:
Glove material: butyl-rubber
Glove thickness: 0,7 mm
Break through time: > 10 min
The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example KCL 890 Vitoject® (full contact), KCL 898 Butoject® (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet<(>,<)> supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet:

Other protective equipment
protective clothing

Respiratory protection
required when vapours/aerosols are generated.
Recommended Filter type: Filter AX (EN 371)
The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.

Environmental exposure controls
Do not let product enter drains.
