Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

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.

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

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

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.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
May be released in case of fire:
- carbon monoxide
- carbon dioxide
- nitric oxides.
Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic products may occur.

Advice for firefighters:
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
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.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Keep out unprotected persons.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Full protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
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 with a suitable material and collect in a suitable container.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance.
Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with the regulations.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see section "Exposure controls/personal protection".

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Use permissible in closed systems only.
Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).
Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks.
Do not ventilate into the open.
Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.

Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

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.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:
DNEL/DMEL values:
Remarks: No substance-related safety assessment is necessary / has been conducted for this product.

PNEC values:
Remarks: No substance-related safety assessment is necessary / has been conducted for this product.

Exposure controls:
Engineering measures:
Provide for installation of emergency shower and eye bath.
Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Leak detection recommended.
Do not add wastewater to a biological wastewater treatment plant
Remove exhaust gases through a washer or through combustion.
Minimization of emissions by means of suitable technical measures such as flanges and valves with low leakage rates, recirculation
of vapours.
All precautionary measures indicated have to be observed.

Exposure controls:
The substance must be handled under strictly controlled conditions in accordance with Article 17/18 of the REACH regulation.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
Use suitable respiratory protection where aerosols/vapours are generated.
Respirator with brown A-type filter.
Accidental release measures:
Wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.

Hand protection:
Glove material: Nitrile, for example, Dermatril P 743, Kächele-Cama Latex GmbH (KCL), Germany
Material thickness: 0.2 mm
Method: DIN EN 374.
Accidental release measures:
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).
