First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation:
Inhalation is possible if aerosols, mists, dusts, or smoke form.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion:
Rinse mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms:
None known.

Hazards:
Other dangerous properties can not be excluded.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
This substance does not have any noteworthy noxious potential.
Damage to health is thus not expected.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
All extinguishing substances suitable.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Danger of decomposition under influence of heat.
Hazard-determining flue gases might develop in case of fire:
- Carbon monoxide
- Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Advice for firefighters:
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Wear personal protective equipment.
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Use personal protective equipment.
Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Pick up mechanically. Collect in suitable containers.
To absorb spilled substance an approved industrial vacuum cleaner is recommended.
If necessary, the spilled substance should be moistened.
Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance.
Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see exposure controls / personal protection.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Avoid dust formation.
Avoid residues of the product on the containers.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from flames / sparks, no smoking.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Further information: VDI 2263 "Dust fires and dust explosions; dangers, evaluation, preventive measures."

Storage:
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
Store at room temperature.

Further information:
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
In the event of internal transportation, already-opened containers are to be kept closed in order to avoid spillage.

German storage class:
11 - Combustible Solids.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls:
Engineering measures:
Ensure suitable suction/aeration at the work place and with operational machinery.
Provide for installation of emergency shower and eye bath.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
When handling for a short time:
If dust occurs: dust mask with P1 particle filter
In the event of prolonged exposure during handling:
In the case of respirable dust, use self-contained breathing apparatus.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.

Hand protection:
Applies to handling for brief periods or of small amounts:
Glove material: Nitrile, for example, Dermatril 740, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany
Material thickness: 0:11 mm
Method: DIN EN 374.
Applies to handling for longer periods or of large amounts:
Glove material: Nitrile/Chloroprene, for example, Nitopren 717, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany
Material thickness: 0.65 mm
Method: DIN EN 374.
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields conforming to EN166
or
When handling larger quantities: basket-shaped glasses.

Skin and body protection:
Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace involved.
