First-aid measures

DESCRIPTION OF FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye Contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention immediately.

Skin Contact:
Wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes without delay. Obtain medical attention. Do not reuse contaminated clothing without laundering. Destroy or thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.

Ingestion:
If swallowed, call a physician immediately. Only induce vomiting at the instruction of a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Inhalation:
Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Apply artificial respiration if patient is not breathing. Obtain medical attention immediately.

MOST IMPORTANT SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS, BOTH ACUTE AND DELAYED
None known

INDICATION OF ANY IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SPECIAL TREATMENT NEEDS
Not applicable

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA
Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Use water spray or fog, carbon dioxide or dry chemical.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE OR MIXTURE
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS
Protective Equipment:
Firefighters, and others exposed, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear full firefighting protective clothing. For more information, refer to section 'Exposure Controls/Personal Protection'.

Accidental release measures

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Where exposure level is not known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator. Where exposure level is known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure. In addition to the protective clothing/equipment used for exposure control, wear a two piece PVC suit with hood or PVC overalls with hood.

Environmental Precautions:
None known

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Cover spills with some inert absorbent. Sweep up into containers for disposal. Flush spill area with water.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

Precautionary Measures: Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Avoid breathing vapor.

Special Handling Statements: Provide good ventilation of working area (local exhaust ventilation if necessary). During processing and handling of the product, comply with the indicative occupational exposure limit values.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place and keep container tightly closed. Observe the general rules of industrial fire protection.

Storage Temperature: Store at 0 - 30 °C
Reason: Quality.

Storage Class (TRGS 510): 8A

Specific end use(s):
Refer to Section 1 of the safety datasheet or Exposure Scenario if applicable.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering Measures:
Utilize a closed system process where feasible.
Where this material is not used in a closed system, good enclosure and local exhaust ventilation should be provided to control exposure.

Respiratory Protection:
For operations where inhalation exposure can occur, use an approved respirator recommended by an industrial hygienist after an evaluation of the operation. Where inhalation exposure cannot occur, no respiratory protection is required.
A full facepiece respirator also provides eye and face protection.

Eye protection:
Prevent eye and skin contact.
Provide eye wash fountain and safety shower in close proximity to points of potential exposure.
Wear eye/face protection such as chemical splash proof goggles or face shield.

Skin Protection:
Prevent contamination of skin or clothing when removing protective equipment.
Wear impermeable gloves and suitable protective clothing.

Hand protection:
Nitrile or fluorinated rubber gloves. Consider the porosity and elasticity data of the glove manufacturer and the specific conditons in the work place. Barrier creams may help to protect the exposed areas of the skin, they should however not be applied once exposure has occurred. Replace gloves immediately when torn or any change in appearance (dimension, colour, flexibility etc) is noticed.

Additional Advice:
Food, beverages, and tobacco products should not be carried, stored, or consumed where this material is in use.
Before eating, drinking, or smoking, wash face and hands thoroughly with soap and water.

Disposal considerations

Waste Treatment Methods
The Registrant encourages the recycle and reuse of products and packaging, where possible and permitted.

Product disposal
When recycle or reuse is not possible, the Registrant recommends that our products, especially when classified as hazardous, be disposed of by thermal treatment or incineration at approved facilities. All local and national regulations should be followed. For disposal within the European Community, waste codes according to Directive 2008/98/EC should be assigned by the user based on the application for which the product was used.

Packaging disposal
Handle contaminated packages in the same way as the product itself. Disposal of emptied and cleaned packaging must be made in accordance with applicable local and national regulations.

Disposal-relevant information
Do not release directly or indirectly to surface water, ground water, soil or public sewage system.
