First-aid measures

1 Description of first aid measures

General information:

Take affected persons out of danger area and lay down.

Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

Remove breathing equipment only after contaminated clothing have been completely removed.

In case of irregular breathing or respiratory arrest provide artificial respiration.

After inhalation:

Supply fresh air or oxygen; call for doctor.

In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.

After skin contact:

Immediately rinse with water.

If skin irritation continues, consult a doctor.

After eye contact:

IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Seek medical treatment.

After swallowing:

Rinse out mouth and then drink plenty of water.

If symptoms persist consult doctor.

2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Irregular cardiac activity





Shortness of breath

May produce an allergic reaction.

Health injuries may be delayed.

3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

General advice for dithiocarbamates

Biomonitoring possible at chronical exposure: determination of TTCA in the urine at the end of the workday/week.

Bloodtesting for delayed effects: livertests, kidney function, thyroid function

Fire-fighting measures

1 Extinguishing media

· Suitable extinguishing agents: CO2, powder or water spray. Fight larger fires with water spray or alcohol resistant foam. Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions.

· For safety reasons unsuitable extinguishing agents: Water with full jet


2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Formation of toxic gases is possible during heating or in case of fire.

In case of fire, the following can be released: Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Sulphur oxides (SOx)

3 Advice for firefighters

· Protective equipment: Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Additional information: Cool endangered receptacles with water spray. Collect contaminated fire fighting water separately. It must not enter the sewage system.

Accidental release measures

1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Avoid formation of dust.

Keep away from ignition sources.

2 Environmental precautions: Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water.

3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Pick up mechanically.

Dispose of the material collected according to regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Prevent formation of dust.

Any unavoidable deposit of dust must be regularly removed.

Ensure good ventilation/exhaustion at the workplace.

Open and handle receptacle with care.

Information about fire and explosion protection:

Dust can combine with air to form an explosive mixture.

Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.

Protect against electrostatic charges.

Keep respiratory protective device available.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1 Control parameters

Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace: The product does not contain any relevant quantities of materials with critical values that have to be monitored at the workplace.

2 Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment:

General protective and hygienic measures:

· Do not eat, drink, smoke or sniff while working.

· Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

· Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing.

· Store protective clothing separately.

· Do not inhale gases / fumes / aerosols.

· Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

· The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.

Respiratory protection:

· In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposureuse self-contained respiratory protective device.

· Filter P3

· Self-contained breathing apparatus (EN 133)

Protection of hands:

· Protective gloves

Only use chemical-protective gloves with CE-labelling of category III.

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation.

· Material of gloves

Rubber gloves

Neoprene gloves

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

· Penetration time of glove material

The exact break through time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to beobserved.

Eye protection: Safety glasses

Body protection: Protective work clothing
