Administrative data

First-aid measures

General: remove the victims from the danger area; seek immediate medical assistance and show the specific MSDS to the physicians; treat symptomatically. Wear protective equipment for eyes, skin,hands. Wear self contained respiratory protection. Do not allow presence of unprotected people in the area.
If in eyes: remove contact lenses if present and easy to do. Wash immediately with plenty of water for several minutes opening eyelids fully. If any problem persists, seek medical advice.
If inhaled: move the victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position confortable for breathing. If breathing difficulties persists due to accidental inhalation of dust, vapours, aerosols or combustion fumes, provide oxygen and/or artificial respiration. Seek immediate medical assistance.
If on skin: remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Rinse abundantly with soap and water. If irritation persists, get medical advice. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
If ingested: contact immediately a POISON CENTRE or a doctor. Rinse repeatedly the mouth with water without swallowing. Do not induce vomiting or administer anything without medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

General: avoid formation of aerosols; prevent formation of electrostatic charges or contact with other ignition sources
Extinguishing media: foam, water spray, carbon dioxide, chemical powder. Do not use water in proximity of electrical apparatus.
Danger in case of fire: possible evolution of toxic/corrosive fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and sulphur.
Protective devices for fire fighting people: protective devices/clothing for head, hands, skin and eyes; self-contained breathig device.
Fire fighting water/media and fire residues must be disposed as hazardous wastes, in compliance with current Regulations.

Accidental release measures

General: do not allow presence of unprotected people in the area; send away those who are not in charge to manage the issue. Use PPE as adequate for eyes, skin and breathing apparatus. Prevent contact with ignition sources.
Environmental: prevent dispersed material to reach sewers and water courses.
Methods for cleaning up: use inert absorbents (sand, kieselgur...); collect mechanically the released material and dispose according to waste handling procedures. Ventilate the area, if proper; if necessary wash with water disposing the resulting liquid as hazardous waste.

Handling and storage

General: the substance is stable in normal storage conditions, however, as precautionary measure, store in a fresh, dry and well ventilated area.Use local exhaust capture during load/unload operations and when collecting samples. Only protected, informed people should handle the substance.
Emissions: captured air and process emissions should be properly handle before immission in atmosphere (gaseous emissions purification system).
Waste: waste driving from activities involving the substance should be considered hazardous and handled as such.
Storage: store in well closed leakproof containers in well ventilated, dedicated area. Prevent/protect from contact with electrostatic charges or other ignition sources. Avoid moisture, light exposition and proximity with incompatible materials (strong acid and bases, oxidants).
Further measures: as additional protection measure, workers should wear proper PPE for skin (overalls), hands (gloves), eyes (googles) and a self-contained breathing device when handling the substance. Strictlyfollow the directions for use, cleaning and maintenance reported by the supplier for each kind of PPE. Wash accuratly before re-use.

Exposure controls / personal protection

The substance is handled in SCC. Refer to attached file for details. Operation shouild be carried out in poresence of localized exhaust capture system. As a redundant caution measure, personnel in charge for handling (sampling, load into reaction vessel etc.) should wear disposable protection clothing, gloves, respiratory protection devise (mask), googles.
Periodical controls of personnel exposure to the sbstance are in place according to specific SOPs.

Stability and reactivity

Stable under normal conditions of use.
Conditions to avoid: very high temperature could origin decomposition with emission of toxic/irritating/corrosive fumes.
Thermal decomposition could result in emission of oxides of Carbon, Nitrogen and Sulphur.
Materials to avoid: strong acid and bases; oxidizing agents.
Avoid light exposure.

Disposal considerations

Strictly observe all local, regional, national and international environmental Regulations. Waste deriving from handling/using the substance should be considered as hazardous and disposed as such. Containers should be handled in the same way.
Disposal of waste: keep in well closed containers and send waste (including contaminated containers) to authorized companies for disposal.
