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

On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon oxides, nitrous gases
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

5.3. Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Breathing protection required. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Sealed containers should be protected against heat as this results in pressure build-up.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from alkalies and alkalizing substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Storage stability:
Storage temperature: <= 20 °C
Storage duration: 24 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

7.3. Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to this safety data sheet.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits


67-56-1: methanol
OEL 270 mg/m3 ; 200 ppm (TRGS 900 (DE))
Ceiling limit value/factor: 4
If the occupational exposure limit value (AGW) and the biological limit value (BGW) are complied with, there should be no risk of damage for the unborn child (see TRGS 900, Number 2.7)
Skin Designation (TRGS 900 (DE))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
TWA value 260 mg/m3 ; 200 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative
Short Term Exposure Classification: (TRGS 900 (DE))
Category II: Substances with a resorptive effect
Skin Designation (OEL (EU))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
107-31-3: methyl formate
OEL 120 mg/m3 ; 50 ppm (TRGS 900 (DE))
Ceiling limit value/factor: 4
If the occupational exposure limit value (AGW) and the biological limit value (BGW) are complied with, there should be no risk of damage for the unborn child (see TRGS 900, Number 2.7)
Skin Designation (TRGS 900 (DE))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
Short Term Exposure Classification: (TRGS 900 (DE))
Category II: Substances with a resorptive effect

PNEC
freshwater: 0,115 mg/l

marine water: 0,0115 mg/l

intermittent release: 1,15 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0,439 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0,0439 mg/kg

soil: 0,0202 mg/kg

STP: 8117 mg/l


DNEL
worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 17 mg/kg

worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 120 mg/m3

worker:
Long-term exposure - local effects, Inhalation: 120 mg/m3


8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if gases/vapours are formed. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point <65 °C, f.e. EN 14387 Type AX)

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Hand protection:
Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

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
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. The odour threshold might be higher than occupational exposure levels, therefore the perception of an odour has no sufficient warning effect of dangerous air concentrations. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks). Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Store work clothing separately.
