First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move affected person to fresh air and keep warm and at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie or belt. Get medical attention if symptoms are severe or persist.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Get medical advice/attention if you feel unwell. Do not induce vomiting unless under the direction of medical personnel.
Skin contact: Rinse with water.
Eye contact: Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids wide apart. Rinse with water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
Protection of first aiders: First aid personnel should wear appropriate protective equipment during any rescue.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Extinguish with alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder or water fog. Use fireextinguishing media suitable for the surrounding fire.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.
Specific hazards: None known.
Hazardous combustion products: Thermal decomposition or combustion products may include the following substances: Harmful gases or vapours.
Protective actions during firefighting: Avoid breathing fire gases or vapours. Evacuate area. Cool containers exposed to heat with water spray and remove them from the fire area if it can be done without risk. Cool containers exposed to flames with water until well after the fire is out. Avoid discharge to the aquatic environment. Control run-off water by containing and keeping it out of sewers and watercourses. If risk of water pollution occurs, notify appropriate authorities.
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and appropriate protective clothing. Firefighter's clothing conforming to European standard EN469 (including helmets, protective boots and gloves) will provide a basic level of protection for chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Wear protective clothing. No action shall be taken without appropriate training or involving any personal risk. Do not touch or walk into spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Avoid discharge into drains or watercourses or onto the ground. Avoid discharge to the aquatic environment.
Methods for cleaning up: Wear protective clothing as described in Section 8 of this safety data sheet. Allow to solidify. Clear up spills immediately and dispose of waste safely. Collect spillage with a shovel and broom, or similar and reuse, if possible. Collect and place in suitable waste disposal containers and seal securely. Flush contaminated area with plenty of water. Wash thoroughly after dealing with a spillage. Dangerous for the environment. Do not empty into drains.

Handling and storage

Usage precautions: Read and follow manufacturer's recommendations. Wear protective clothing. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Handle all packages and containers carefully to minimise spills. Keep container tightly sealed when not in use. Avoid the formation of mists. Avoid discharge to the aquatic environment. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Do not handle broken packages without protective equipment. Do not reuse empty containers.
Storage class: Miscellaneous hazardous material storage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: Provide adequate ventilation. Observe any occupational exposure limits for the product or ingredients.
Eye/face protection: Unless the assessment indicates a higher degree of protection is required, the following protection should be worn: Tight-fitting safety glasses.
Hand protection: No specific hand protection recommended. Avoid contact with skin.
Other skin and body protection: Wear appropriate clothing to prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact.
Hygiene measures: Wash after use and before eating, smoking and using the toilet. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.
Respiratory protection: Ensure all respiratory protective equipment is suitable for its intended use and is ‘CE’-marked. Check that the respirator fits tightly and the filter is changed regularly. Gas and combination filter cartridges should comply with European Standard EN14387. Full face mask respirators with replaceable filter cartridges should comply with European Standard EN136. Half mask and quarter mask respirators with replaceable filter cartridges should comply with European Standard EN140.
Environmental exposure controls: Keep container tightly sealed when not in use. Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Upon exposure to water, slow hydrolysis to corresponding acid and alcohol.
Stability: Stable at normal ambient temperatures and when used as recommended. Stable under the prescribed storage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: The following materials may react with the product: Strong oxidising agents.
Conditions to avoid: There are no known conditions that are likely to result in a hazardous situation.
Materials to avoid: No specific material or group of materials is likely to react with the product to produce a hazardous situation.
Hazardous decomposition products: Does not decompose when used and stored as recommended. Thermal decomposition or combustion products may include the following substances: Harmful gases or vapours.

Disposal considerations

General information: The generation of waste should be minimised or avoided wherever possible. Reuse or recycle products wherever possible. This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. When handling waste, the safety precautions applying to handling of the product should be considered. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been thoroughly cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues and hence be potentially hazardous.
Disposal methods: Do not empty into drains.
