medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide or dry powder may be used. The substance is
water soluble so water may not be suitable.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and
nitrogen, plus chlorine containing compounds.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full personal protective equipment and a self-contained
breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Contain spillages of solutions with a dike or trench and
pump into drums or absorb with inert material (e.g. sand)
and shovel into clean-up drums. Gloves, eye protection and
protective clothing should be worn. New drums should be
clearly labelled and the contents disposed of in accordance
with local regulations. Avoid release to drains.

Handling and storage

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

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.
