First-aid measures

1. Description of first aid measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.

On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, induce vomiting, seek medical attention.


2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling . Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.


3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), treat with toluonium chloride to reverse methaemoglobinanaemia.

Fire-fighting measures

1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
carbon dioxide

Additional information:
Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion.

2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, toxic gases/vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

3. Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing.

2. Environmental precautions
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.
For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.
Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

1. Precautions for safe handling
Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits

60-09-3: 4-aminoazobenzene; 4-phenylazoaniline

PNEC
freshwater: 0.00046 mg/l

marine water: 0.00005 mg/l

intermittent release: 0.0046 mg/l

STP: 0.47 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0.0147 mg/l

soil: 0.00491 mg/l


2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with high efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P3 or FFP3).

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
