First-aid measures

General advice: Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the
doctor in attendance.
If inhaled:
Immediately call a poison center or doctor. Effects of
exposure (inhalation) to substance may be delayed.
Inhalation of vapors or contact with substance will result
in contamination and potential harmful effects.
Move victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if
victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is
difficult. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat
symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take
precautions to protect themselves.

In case of skin contact:
For severe burns, immediate medical attention is
required. Immediately call a poison center or doctor.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and
shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately
flush skin with running water for at least 20 minutes.
Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that
medical personnel are aware of the material(s)
involved and take precautions to protect themselves.

In case of eye contact:
If this chemical contacts the eyes, immediately wash
(irrigate) the eyes with large amounts of water,
occasionally lifting the lower and upper eyelids. If eye
irritation persists get medical advice/attention. Move victim to fresh air. Check for and remove any contact
lenses. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat
symptomatically and supportively. Effects of exposure to
substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take
precautions to protect themselves.


If swallowed:
Do not induce vomiting with out medical advice. Call a
physician or Poison Control Center immediately. Do
not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested the
substance; give artificial respiration with the aid of a
pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other
proper respiratory medical device. Loosen tight
clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If a
person vomits place them in the recovery position so
that vomit will not reenter the mouth and throat. Rinse
mouth. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat
symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical
personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and
take precautions to protect themselves.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Acute: Cough.
Delayed: No information

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
If breathing has stopped, perform artificial respiration. Use first aid treatment according to the nature
of the injury. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take
precautions to protect themselves.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Dry chemical, CO2 , water spray, or alcohol-resistant foam. Consult with
local fire authorities before attempting large scale fire fighting operations.
Unsuitable extinguishing
media: No information.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous combustion products: These products include: Carbon oxides
Other specific hazards: Closed containers may explode from heat of a fire.

Advice for firefighters
Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. Dike fire-control water for later disposal; do not
scatter the material.
CAUTION: All these products have a very low flash point: Use of water spray when fighting fire may be
inefficient. Do not use straight streams. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard.
Containers may explode when heated. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Structural fire fighters' protective
clothing provides limited protection in fire situations ONLY; it may not be effective in spill situations.
Wear chemical protective clothing which is specifically recommended by the manufacturer. It may
provide little or no thermal protection.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Use
sparkproof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Remove all sources of ignition. Do not touch
damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing (Section 8).
Warn unnecessary personnel to move away. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Ensure adequate
ventilation. Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
Splash goggles. Lab coat. Vapor respirator. Be sure to use a MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator or
equivalent. Wear protective gloves (nitrile).

Environmental precautions
Isolate area until gas has dispersed. Do not clean-up or dispose except under supervision of a
specialist. In case of a spill and/or a leak, always shut off any sources of ignition, ventilate the area,
and excercise caution. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing
appropriate protective clothing. Warn personnel to move away. Prevent entry into sewers,
basements or confined areas; dike if needed. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Water runoff can cause environmental damage.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). All
equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Stop leak if without risk. Ventilate the
area. Absorb with an inert material and put the spilled material in an appropriate waste disposal
container. Use clean non-sparking

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Precautions: Do NOT breath gas, fumes, vapor, or spray. Do not ingest.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from heat
and sources of ignition. Use explosion-proof equipment.
Use only non-sparking hand tool when handling this
product. Ground all equipment containing material. Take
measures to prevent build up of electrostatic charge.
Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control
airborne levels. Keep container dry. Handle and open
container with care. Wear suitable protective clothing,gloves and eye/face protection. When using do not eat, drink, or smoke. Keep away from sources of ignition.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and
containers:
Store locked up. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool,
well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of
ignition. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open
flame, or any other ignition source. Keep away from
incompatibles. Containers which are opened must be
carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
Avoid prolonged storage periods.

Incompatible products: Combustible substances, Store away from oxidizing agents.
