First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

If inhaled : fresh air. Call in physician.

In case of skin contact : Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/ shower.

In case of eye contact : rinse out with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses.

If swallowed : immediately make victim drink water (two glasses at most). Consult a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms :somnolence, Drowsiness, Nausea, Vomiting, CNS disorders, narcosis

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment : No information available.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media : Water Foam Carbon dioxide (CO2) Dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media : For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting : Combustible.

Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Forms explosive mixtures with air at elevated temperatures. Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.

Fire may cause evolution of: Sulphur oxides Hydrogen fluoride

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters : Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.

Further information : Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray. Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions : Advice for non-emergency personnel: Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions : Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Risk of explosion.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up : Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions. Take up with liquid-absorbent material (e.g. Chemizorb® ). Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling : Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Do not inhale substance/mixture.Avoid generation of vapours/aerosols. Observe label precautions.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion : Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharge.

Hygiene measures : Change contaminated clothing. Wash hands after working with substance.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers : Store in original container.

Further information on storage conditions : Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Protected from light.

Recommended storage temperature : Recommended storage temperature see product label.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Engineering measures

Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given priority over the use of personal protective equipment.

Personal protective equipment

Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled and must meet the specifications of a standard EN/ISO/DIN. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.

Eye protection: Safety glasses

Hand protection : splash contact

Glove material : Nitrile rubber

Glove thickness : 0,4 mm

Break through time : 10 min

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example:KCL 730 Camatril® -Velours(splash contact);.

This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet, supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet: www.kcl.de).

Protective measures : Flame retardant antistatic protective clothing.

Respiratory protection : required when vapours/aerosols are generated.

Recommended Filter type: ABEK-filter

The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.

Environmental exposure controls

General advice : Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Risk of explosion.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

Vapour/air-mixtures are explosive at intense warming.

Formation of peroxides possible.

Chemical stability

Sensitivity to light Sensitive to air.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Hazardous reactions : Generates dangerous gases or fumes in contact with: hydrides (generation of hydrogen) Violent reactions possible with: Strong oxidizing agents acid halides Acid anhydrides Acid chlorides

Conditions to avoid

Conditions to avoid : Heating.

Incompatible materials

Materials to avoid :no information available

Hazardous decomposition products

Peroxides

Disposal considerations
