First-aid measures

- General advice:
- Following inhalation:
• lf fumes or combustion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area.
• Lay patient down. Keep warm and rested.
• Prostheses such as false teeth, which may block airway, should be removed, where possible, prior to initiating first aid procedures.
• Apply artificial respiration if not breathing, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve mask device, or pocket mask as trained. Perform CPR if necessary.
• Transport to hospital, or doctor, without delay.

- Following skin contact:
• Quickly but gently, wipe materiai off skin with a dry, clean cloth.
• lmmediately remove all contaminated clothing, including footwear.
• Wash skin and hair with running water. Continue flushing with water until advised to stop by the Poisons lnformation Centre.
• Transport to hospital, or doctor.

- Following eye contact:
• lmmediately hold eyelids apart and flush the eye continuously with running water.
• Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids.
• Continue flushing until advised to stop by the Poisons lnformation Centre or a doctor, or tor at least 15 minutes.
• Transport to hospital or doctor without delay.
• Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.

- Following ingestion:
• IF SWALLOWED, REFER FOR MEDICAL ATTENTION, WHERE POSSIBLE, WITHOUT DELAY.
• For advice, contact a Poisons lnformation Centre or a doctor.
• Urgent hospital treatment is likely to be needed.
• In the mean time, qualified first-aid personnel should treat the patient following observation and employing supportive measures as indicated by the patient's condition.
• lf the services of a medicai officer or medicai doctor are readily available, the patient should be placed in his/her care and a copy of the SDS should be provided. Further action will be the responsibility of the medicai specialist.
• lf medicai attention is not available on the worksite or surroundings send the patient to a hospital together with a copy of the SDS.
Where medicai attention is not immediately available or where the patient is more than 15 minutes from a hospital or unless instructed otherwise:
• INDUCE vomiting with fingers down the back of the throat, ONLY IF CONSCIOUS. Lean patient forward or piace on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration.
NOTE: Wear a protective glove when inducing vomiting by mechanical means.

- Most important symptoms and effects:

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:
• Foam.
• Dry chemical powder.
• BCF (where regulations permit).
• Carbon dioxide

- Unsuitable extinguishing media: no data

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Fire lncompatibility: Avoid contamination with oxidising agents i.e. nitrates, oxidising acids, chiarine bleaches, pool chiarine etc. as ignition may result
- Advice for fire fighter:
• Alert Fire Brigade and tell them location and nature of hazard.
• Wear full body protective clothing with breathing apparatus.
• Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course.
• Use fire fighting procedures suitable far surrounding area.
Fire/Explosion Hazard:
• Combustible.
• Slight fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame.
• Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers.
• On combustion, may emit toxic fumes of carbon monoxide (CO).
Combustion products include:
carbon dioxide (C02)
nitrogen oxides (NOx)
other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic materiai.
May emit poisonous fumes.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions:
- Protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Minor Spills:
• Remove all ignition sources.
• Clean up all spills immediately.
• Avoid breathing vapours and contact with skin and eyes.
• Contrai persona! contact with the substance, by using protective equipment
For release onta land: recommended sorbents listed in arder of priority.
- Environmental precautions:
- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling:
• DO NOT allow clothing wet with materiai to stay in contact with skin
• Avoid all personal contact, including inhalation.
• Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs.
• Use in a well-ventilated area.
• Prevent concentration in hollows and sumps.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
• Store in originai containers.
• Keep containers securely sealed.
• Stare in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
• Store away from incompatible materials and foodstuff containers.
Suitable container:
• Lined metal can, lined metal pail/ can.
• Plastic pail.
• Polyliner drum.
• Packing as recommended by manufacturer.
Storage incompatibility:
• Many arylamines (aromatic amines such as aniline, N-ethylaniline, o-toluidine, xylidine etc. and their mixtures) are hypergolic (ignite spontaneously) with red fuming nitric acid. When the amines are dissolved in triethylamine, ignition occurs at -60 deg. C. or less.
• Various metal oxides and their salts may promote ignition of amine-red fuming nitric acid systems.
• Avoid oxidising agents, acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, chloroformates.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
Engineering controls are used to remove a hazard or piace a barrier between the worker and the hazard.
Well-designed engineering controls can be highly effective in protecting workers and will typically be independent of worker interactions to provide this high level of protection.
The basic types of engineering controls are:
Process controls which involve changing the way a job activity or process is done to reduce the risk.
Enclosure and/or isolation of emission source which keeps a selected hazard "physically" away from the worker and ventilation that strategically "adds" and "removes" air in the work environment.

Eye and face protection:
• Safety glasses with side shields.
• Chemical goggles.
• Contact lenses may pose a special hazard; soft contact lenses may absorb and concentrate irritants. A written policy document, describing the wearing of lenses or restrictions on use, should be created for each workplace or task.

Skin protection Hands/feet protection:
• Wear chemical protective gloves, e.g. PVC.
• Wear safety footwear or safety gumboots, e.g. Rubber
NOTE: Care must be taken, when removing gloves and other protective equipment, to avoid all possible skin contact.
• Contaminated leather items, such as shoes, belts and watch-bands should be removed and destroyed.
The selection of suitable gloves does not only depend on the materiai, but also on further marks of quality which vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. Where the chemical is a preparation of several substances, the resistance of the glove materiai can not be calculated in advance and has therefore to be checked prior to the application.
The exact break through time for substances has to be obtained from the manufacturer of the protective gloves and.has to be observed when making a final choice.
Respiratory protection: Type A Filter of sufficient capacity.

Stability and reactivity

Unstable in the presence of incompatible materials.
Product is considered stable under standard conditions.
Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.

Disposal considerations

• Containers may stili present a chemical hazard/ danger when empty.
• Return to supplier tor reuse/ recycling if possible.
Otherwise:
• lf container can not be cleaned sufficiently well to ensure that residuals do not remain or if the container cannot be used to stare the same product, then puncture containers, to prevent re-use, and bury at an authorised landfill.
• Where possible retain label warnings and SDS and observe all notices pertaining to the product.
Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/ or territory. Each user must referto laws operating in their area. In some areas, certain wastes must be tracked.
A Hierarchy of Controls seems to be common - the user should investigate:
• Reduction
• Reuse
• Recycling
• Disposal (if all else fails)
This materiai may be recycled if unused, or if it has not been contaminated so as to make it unsuitable tor its intended use.
• DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning or process equipment to enter drains.
• lt may be necessary to collect all wash water tor treatment betore disposal.
• In all cases disposal to sewer may be subject to locai laws and regulations and these should be considered first.
• Where in doubt contact the responsible authority.
• Recycle wherever possible or consult manufacturer tor recycling options.
• Consult State Land Waste Authority tor disposal.
• Bury or incinerate residue at an approved site.
• Recycle containers if possible, or dispose of in an authorised landfill.
