First-aid measures

General advice: When in doubt or if symptoms are observed, get medical advice.
Inhalation: Remove to fresh air.
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes.
Eye Contact: If substance enters the eyes, immediately rinse with plenty of water for several minutes.
Ingestion: Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media:
Use. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Extinguishing powder. Alcohol resistant foam. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating and toxic gases and vapours.
Hazardous combustion products: Carbon dioxide (CO2), Carbon monoxide, Nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Advice for firefighters:
In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. Use water spray jet to protect personnel and to cool endangered containers. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit. Use personal protective equipment as required. Do not allow run-off from fire-fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Special danger of slipping by leaking/spilling product. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
Methods for Containment: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Methods for cleaning up: Use personal protective equipment as required. Dam up. Cover liquid spill with sand, earth or other non-combustible absorbent material. Take up mechanically, placing in appropriate containers for disposal. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Use personal protective equipment as required. In case of gas escape or of entry into waterways, soil or drains, inform the responsible authorities.
General hygiene considerations: Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly after handling.
Storage Conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Never use pressure to empty; drum is not a pressure vessel.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering controls: Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Personal Protective Equipment:
Eye/face Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles).
Hand protection: Wear protective gloves. To protect the wearer, gloves must be the correct fit and be used properly. Ensure that the breakthrough time of the glove material is not exceeded. Refer to glove supplier for information on breakthrough time for specific gloves.
Skin and Body Protection: Suitable protective clothing. Wear protective gloves. To protect the wearer, gloves must be the correct fit and be used properly. Ensure that the breakthrough time of the glove material is not exceeded. Refer to glove supplier for information on breakthrough time for specific gloves. Gloves must conform to standard EN 374.
Respiratory protection: None under normal use conditions.
Environmental exposure controls: Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: None under normal processing.
Incompatible materials: Incompatible with oxidising agents. Bases.
Hazardous decomposition products:
Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating and toxic gases and vapours. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon monoxide. Nitrogen oxides (NOx).

Disposal considerations

Waste from residues/unused products: Disposal should be in accordance with applicable regional, national and local laws and regulations.
Contaminated packaging: Contaminated packages must be completely emptied and can be re-used following proper cleaning. Clean IBCs or drums at approved facility. Packing which cannot be properly cleaned must be disposed of. Handle contaminated packages in the same way as the substance itself.
