First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

General advice: Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water also under the eyelids for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses.

Skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay.

Ingestion: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If a person vomits when lying on his back, place him in the recovery position. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim's head to the side.

Inhalation: If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately. Move to fresh air.


Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: Repeated and/or prolonged exposure to low concentrations of vapors and/or aerosols may cause: Sore throat.


Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

No data available.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Alcohol-resistant foam.Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical. Dry sand. Limestone powder.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: No data available.


Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: May generate ammonia gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. Do not allow run-off from firefighting to enter drains or water courses. Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages. May form explosive mixtures in air. Downwind personnel must be evacuated. In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes.


Advice for firefighters: Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Remove all sources of ignition. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions : Shut off or remove all ignition sources. Construct a dike to prevent spreading. Construct a dike to prevent spreading.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Call Emergency Response number for advice. Absorb with inert absorbent materials such as: Dry sand. Vermiculite. Activated charcoal. Place in appropriate chemical waste container.

Additional advice: If possible, stop flow of product.

Reference to other sections: For more information refer to Sections on 'Exposure controls/personal protection' and 'Disposal considerations'.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by government regulations. Avoid breathing vapors and/or aerosols. Avoid contact with eyes. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Use personal protective equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in steel containers preferably located outdoors, above ground, and surrounded by dikes to contain spills or leaks. Do not store near acids. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Keep in a dry, cool place. Keep away from oxidizers.

Technical measures/Precautions: Do not store in reactive metal containers. Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Specific end use(s): Polyurethane Catalyst.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Engineering measures:
Apply process controls to ensure safe operating conditions. Assess potential flammability hazards based on flashpoint and potential ignition sources.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Provide natural or explosion-proof ventilation adequate to ensure concentrations are kept below exposure limits.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
- Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate.
Hand protection:
- Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
- Neoprene gloves.
- Butyl-rubber
- Nitrile rubber.
- Impervious gloves.

Eye/face Protection:
- Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.

Skin and body protection:
- Long sleeve shirts and trousers without cuffs.

Environmental exposure controls:
- Shut off or remove all ignition sources. Construct a dike to prevent spreading.

Special instructions for protection and hygiene:
- Discard contaminated leather articles. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers. Wash hands at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or using the toilet. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.

Environmental Exposure Controls:
- If applicable, refer to the extended section of the SDS for further information on CSA.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity:
- Refer to possibility of hazardous reactions and/or incompatible materials sections.

Chemical stability:
- Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
- No data available.

Conditions to avoid:
- Heat, flames and sparks.

Incompatible materials:
- Sodium hypochlorite.
- Organic acids (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.).
- Mineral acids.
- Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and galvanized surfaces.
- Reaction with peroxides may result in violent decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an explosion.
- Reactive metals (e.g. sodium, calcium, zinc etc.).
- Materials reactive with hydroxyl compounds.
- Oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products:
- Nitric acid.
- Ammonia
- Nitrogen oxides (NOx).
- Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive nitric acid.
- Carbon monoxide.
- Carbon dioxide (CO2).
- Aldehydes
- Flammable hydrocarbon fragments.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods: Contact supplier if guidance is required.

Contaminated packaging: Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with federal, state, and local requirements.
