First-aid measures

General advice: Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.
IF INHALED: If breathing is difficult, remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a POISON CENTER/doctor if you feel unwell.

IF ON SKIN: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water or shower. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

IF IN EYES: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor. Obtain prompt consultation, preferably from an ophthalmologist.

IF SWALLOWED: Keep patient at rest. Do not induce vomiting, wash out mouth with water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor.

Symptoms: Causes severe skin burns and eye damage.
Medical treatment: Treat symptomatically
Note to Physician: Treatment by an ophthalmologist due to possible caustic burn of the eyes may be required.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: In case of fire use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding conditions. Small fire: Extinguish preferably with dry chemical, water spray, alcohol-resistant foam or carbon dioxide. Large fire: Sprinkling, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet. Direct water jet may spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance: Combustion or thermal decomposition may cause toxic fumes e.g., carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide. Containers may explode if heated.

Advice for fire-fighters: Fire fighters should wear complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do not breathe fumes. Shut off source of leak if safe to do so. Stay upwind/keep distance from source. Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Do not allow run-off from firefighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapours. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Take off contaminated clothing and wash it before reuse. Keep unauthorised personnel away and upwind. Wear suitable protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering.

Environmental precautions: Avoid release to the environment. Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Small spillage: Cover spills with inert absorbent material, i.e. dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal or recovery. Large spillage: Stop leak if safe to do so. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Watering can be used to reduce vapour temperature. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal or recovery.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Good hygiene practices and housekeeping measures. Do not eat, drink or smoke during work. Avoid breathing vapours. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Contaminated clothing should be thoroughly cleaned. Wash hands and exposed skin thoroughly after handling.
Conditions for safe storage: Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Keep away from fire, sparks and heated surfaces - no smoking. Keep away from heat and direct sunlight.
Incompatible materials: Keep away from oxidising substances oxidising agents, strong bases and reducing agents.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Hygiene measures: Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals should be ascertained with the respective supplier. Wash hands and exposed skin thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. A washing facility/water for eye and skin cleaning purposes should be present.

Respiratory protection: In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Recommended: Gas masks for organic gas, air-supplied respirators, air respirators.

Hand protection: Wear chemically resistant gloves (tested to EN374) in combination with 'basic' employee training.

Eye protection: Wear goggles giving complete protection to eyes to protect against liquid splashes (EN166).

Skin and body protection: Wear suitable coveralls to prevent exposure to the skin.

Environmental Exposure Controls: Avoid release to the environment. Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Combustion or thermal decomposition may cause toxic fumes.
Conditions to avoid: Elevated temperature, Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking.
Incompatible materials: Keep away from oxidising substances.
Hazardous decomposition products: Thermal decomposition may release: Oxides of carbon.

Disposal considerations

Product disposal methods: Avoid release to the environment. Disposal should be in accordance with local, state or national legislation. Recommended: Burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and a scrubber. For small quantities, the waste should be adsorbed by diatomite, etc. and burned. Recycle containers after cleaning or dispose them according to relevant legislation as well as standards in local governments. Empty containers should be disposed of after completely removing their contents.

Packaging disposal methods: Ensure that all packaging is disposed of safely.
