First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration and
oxygen if necessary, and seek immediate medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with copious amounts of water for at
least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with
soap and water. Seek medical attention if irritation
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry chemical, carbon dioxide or alcohol foam may be used.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and sulfur oxides).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity. Eliminate
ignition sources and place leaking containers in a
well-ventilated area.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material
(eg sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original containers.

Clean the spillage area with copious amounts of water,
avoiding runoff into storm sewers and ditches that lead to
natural waterways.

Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
used, e.g. a vapour mask conforming to EN405 FFA1.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from
sources of ignition and direct sunlight.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 20kg can or 200kg drum.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance is classified as "dangerous for the
environment", however no chemical treatment is practicable
for neutralisation of the potential harmful effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
sulphur oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the substance will not enter the public
