First-aid measures

General advice:
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in
recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid personnel
should pay attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye
specialist.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention. Do not induce
vomiting due to aspiration hazard.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling.

Note to physician:
Hazards: When inhaled (e.g. during vomiting) risk of pulmonary oedema and/or pneumonia.
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote. The presence of benzene in the body can be
detected by determining the amount of this substance in the blood and/or urine.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, water spray, dry powder, foam
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
The product is combustible. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Do not release chemically contaminated water into drains, soil or surface
water. Sufficient measures must be taken to retain the water used for extinguishing. Dispose of contaminated water and soil according to local
regulations.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation. Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate.
Environmental precautions
May be harmful to the aquatic environment. Prevent entry into drains and surface waters. Do not allow to enter soil, waterways or waste water
channels. Collect contaminated washing water for appropriate disposal. Dispose of in compliance with the environmental protection requirements.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Breathing must be protected when large
quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. Vapours may form explosive
mixture with air.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Protect from direct sunlight.
Protect against heat.
Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds
(boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Self-contained breathing apparatus.
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar
substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in
practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).
General safety and hygiene measures
Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothing is required
additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.
At the end of the shift the skin should be cleaned and skin-care agents applied.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.
Corrosion to metals: No corrosive effect on metal.
Formation of flammable gases: Remarks: Forms no flammable gases in the presence of water.
Chemical stability: The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Vapours may form ignitable mixture with air.
Conditions to avoid: Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.
Incompatible materials: Substances to avoid: strong oxidizing agents
Hazardous decomposition products: No hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Disposal considerations

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
