First-aid measures

After inhalation:
Supply fresh air. If symptoms are experienced, get medical attention. In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.
After skin contact:
Immediately rinse with plenty of water. Get medical attention if irritation or skin rash occurs. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.
After eye contact:
Immediately rinse with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do. Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with plenty of cool low-pressure water for several minutes. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
After ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. If person is conscious, rinse out mouth with water. Obtain medical advice immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, foam, powder.
Unsuitable extinguishing agents: water with jet.
Avoid inhalation of smoke and fumes. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Person-safety precautions:
Wear personal protective equipment. Evacuate unprotected persons to safe areas. Provide adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition.
Measures for environmental protection:
Do not allow product to reach soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (soil, waterways, drains or sewers).
Measures for cleaning/collecting:
In case of small spills, absorb spilled liquid with inert absorbent. Collect in an appropriate container properly labelled for disposal. Close it before disposal according to regulation.
In case of large spills, stop spill if it can be done without danger, dike and ump as much liquid as possible with an explosion-proof pump or a hand pump. Absorb the remaining liquid with inert absorbent. Collect in an appropriate container properly labelled for disposal. Close it before disposal according to regulation.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Wear personal protective equipment. Provide adequate ventilation where the product is handled.
No smoking. Avoid any sources of ignition. Avoid exposing to high temperature during processing. Do not ingest or apply to the skin as such. Good personal washing routines should be followed.
Conditions for safe storage:
Store in a cool well-ventilated location. Keep container tightly sealed. Keep away from sources of ignition. Protect from heat and direct sunlight. Respect general rules for compatibility storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures:
Provide local exhaust or general room ventilation to minimize exposure to vapours. Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.
General protective and hygienic measures:
The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals. Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Individual washing routines should be followed after any potential contact.
Personal protective equipment - respiratory protection:
Use suitable respiratory protective device in case of insufficient ventilation.
Personal protective equipment - Hand protection:
Use protective gloves resistant to chemicals (standard EN 374-1). Gloves should be replaced regularly and if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough.
Personal protective equipment - Eye protection:
Use safety glasses (standard EN 166).
Personal protective equipment - Body protection:
Wear protective work clothing.
