First-aid measures

GENERAL INFORMATION: As in all cases of potential poisoning, Obtain medical advice immediately.
EYE CONTACT: Irrigate copiously with water for at least 10 minutes. Obtain medical advice if any irritation or evidence of tissue damage persists.
INHALATION: Remove the individual to fresh air and keep at rest. Obtain medical advice immediately.
SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothes. Wash skin with large volumes of water. If irritation occurs, or any sign of tissue damage is apparent, obtain medical advice immediately.
INGESTION: Rinse mouth with water. Obtain medical advice immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media: In the event of fire, adequate extinguishers should be used. Avoid inhalation of smoke and fumes. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Special hazard arising from the substance or mixture: No specific hazard known.

Advice for fire-fighters: No specific advice.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Adequate protective gloves should be worn when handling spillages. No smoking. Avoid naked flames or other potential sources of ignition (eg. electrical equipment). Avoid skin contamination and inhalation of vapour. Individual washing routines should be followed after any potential contact. Ensure adequate ventilation in working areas following accidental releases.

Environmental precautions: Do not discharge directly into drains, air, into soil or into the aquatic environment.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For containment: Any absorbent used for cleaning up spillage should be disposed promptly,accordingly to local regulation. Gross spillages should be contained by any means, and disposal of this should be in accordance with Government Regulations.
For cleaning-up: Spillages should be disposed of in accordance with Governmental Regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear adequate protective gloves and eye/face protection. 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. Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled.

Protective measures: Keep strict control of dust accumulation to a minimum. Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled. Avoid any sources of ignition.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: It is good general practive to store in closed, preferably full, containers away from heat sources, and protected from extremes of temperature. Do not re-use the empty container. Respect general rules for compatibility storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls: Avoid exposing to high temperature during processing. Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled.

Appropriate engineering controls: Maintain adequate local and general ventilation where product is handled and dispensed.

Environmental exposure controls: Not available at this time. Minimize release to the environment.

Personal protection:
-Respiratory protection: Where ventilation (LEV) is inadequate to prevent any inhalation of substances, use adequate respiratory apparatus.
-Hand protection: Use chemical resistant gloves classified under Standard EN 374: Protective gloves against chemicals. Preferred glove barrier materials: Neoprene and Nitrile. When prolonged or frequently repeated contact may occur, a glove with a protection class of 4 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 120 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. When only brief contact is expected, a glove with a protection class of 1 or higher (breakthrough time greater than 10 minutes according to EN 374) is recommended. Thickness > or = 0,2mm.
NOTICE: The selection of a specific glove for a particular application and duration of use in a workplace should also take into account all relevant workplace factors such as, but not limited to: Other chemicals which may be handled, physical requirements (cut/puncture protection, dexterity, thermal protection), potential body reactions to glove materials, as well as the instructions/specifications provided by the glove supplier.
-Eye protection: Adequate safety glasses should be used.
-Skin protection: Wear protective clothing, overall if necessary to limit the odour contamination of personal clothing. Individual washing routines should be followed after any potential contact.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity/ Possibility of hazardous reactions/ Incompatible materials: Not known.
Chemical stability: Good stability at standard temperature.
Conditions to avoid: Avoid temperatures above or at least 5 °C below flash point for any flammable liquids. Do not heat closed containers. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: Contact with water or storage under recommended conditions for one year should not produce dangerous decomposition products.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
-Product: when being disposed of in its unused and uncontaminated state should be treated as a hazardous waste according to EC Directive 2008/98/EC. Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste.
-Contaminated packaging: for used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be required.
-General: Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
