First-aid measures

EYE CONTACT

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper

and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10

minutes. Get medical attention.

INHALATION

If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest

occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the

person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse

health effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical

attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt

or waistband. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen.

SKIN CONTACT

Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.

Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention. Wash clothing before reuse.

Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

INGESTION

Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at

rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the exposed

person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick

as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical

personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs.

Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by

mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical

attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt

or waistband.

PROTECTION OF FIRST AIDERS

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. It may be

dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Fire-fighting measures

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS

Special protective actions for firefighters: Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a

fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Special protective equipment for firefighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing

apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode. Clothing for firefighters

(including helmets, protective boots and gloves) conforming to European standard EN

469 will provide a basic level of protection for chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

PPE AND EMEGENCY PROCEDURES

For non-emergency personnel: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Evacuate

surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or

walk through spilled material. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when

ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders: If specialized clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any information in Section

8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the information in "For non-emergency

personnel".

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS

Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.

Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers,

waterways, soil or air). Water polluting material. May be harmful to the environment if released

in large quantities. Collect spillage.

METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANUP

Small spill: Move containers from spill area. Approach release from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers,

water courses, basements or confined areas. Avoid dust generation. Do not dry sweep.

Vacuum dust with equipment fitted with a HEPA filter and place in a closed, labeled waste

container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill: Move containers from spill area. Avoid dust generation. Using a vacuum with HEPA filter will

reduce dust dispersal. Place spilled material in a designated, labeled waste container. Dispose

of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

Protective measures: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Do not ingest. Avoid contact

with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid release to the environment. Keep in the original container or

an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use.

Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Advice on general occupational hygiene: Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored

and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking.

Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. See also

Section 8 for additional information on hygiene measures.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATIBILITIES

Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated

area, away from incompatible materials (see Section 10) and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed

until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not

store in unlabeled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS

Europe: no exposure limit value known

Recommended monitoring: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or

biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or

other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment.

Reference should be made to appropriate monitoring standards. Reference to national

guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances will also be

required.

EXPOSURE CONTROLS

Appropriate engineering controls: Provide exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep the airborne concentrations of

vapors below their respective threshold limit value.

Individual protection measures

Hygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using lavatory and at the enbd of the work period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing

before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation

location.

Eye/face protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment

indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts. If contact

is possible, the following protection should be worn, unless the assessment indicates a higher

degree of protection: chemical splash goggles.

Skin protection

Hand protection: Wear chemical resistant gloves. Nitrile gloves of minimum thickness 0.4 mm

have an expected breakthrough time of 480 minutes or less when in frequent contact with the

product. Due to variable exposure conditions the user must consider that the practical use of a

chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time above.
