First-aid measures

EYE CONTACT Rinse continuously with water for at least 10 minutes.

SKIN CONTACT Shower immediately and remove contaminated clothing.

INHALATION Fresh air and rest.

INGESTION Rinse mouth with water and give small amounts of water to drink. NEVER GIVE AN UNCONSCIOUS PATIENT WATER TO DRINK. DO
NOT INDUCE VOMITING. SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION.

OTHER For all exposures to undiluted material seek medical advice. Show medical staff substance data sheet or ensure information accompanies patient.

Fire-fighting measures


EXTINGUISHING MEDIA CO2, Powder, Alcohol-resistant foam, Water fog/spray.

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES Wear self contained breathing apparatus

UNUSUAL FIRE & EXPOSURE HAZARDS If split material is mopped up with a rag, the high surface area of the material can allow autoignition at room tempe
rature.

Accidental release measures

Recover materials if possible. Also absorb spilled substance in sand or inert substance and remove to a safe place. Prevent material entering drains with absorbent socks and drain protectors. After absorption and recovery, wash away traces with large amounts of water. Any absorbent material used to mop up a spill must be thoroughly wetted and disposed of in a closed metal container.

Protective Equipment to be worn for spill – Chemical splash resistant overalls, Wellingtons or boots, chemical resistant PVC gauntlets and organic vapour respirator.

Handling and storage

HANDLING

Use in well ventilated areas. Keep containers tightly closed when not in use. Open and handle containers with care. Store in original containers. Keep away from sources of ignition. Avoid excessive breathing of vapours. Emergency shower and eyewash should be close by. Transfer and handle under inert and dry atmosphere. Avoid accumulation of static charge and keep away from sources of ignition. Electrical equipment to be suitable for electrical apparatus group and temperature class of the material (see Section 9).

STORAGE

Store away from oxidising agents. Suitable storage material – 316 Stainless Steel. Suitable seals - Perfluoroelastomer (Kalrez), suitable gaskets – graphite supported on 316 Stainless steel or asbestos free aramid fibre composite. Storage tanks to have flame trap and to be bunded to contain 110% of tank contents, or as local regulations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

VENTILATION Engineering controls should be aimed to prevent the need for ventilation, however if this is not possible and the undiluted product is used in a confined space, then good ventilation must be employed.

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT for normal operation of undiluted product

BREATHING Under normal conditions respiratory protection is not required. If the exposure limit is likely to be exceeded, wear full face chemi
cal respirator with organic vapour cartridge CEN141.

PROTECTIVE GLOVES Use protective gloves/gauntlets made of PVC.

EYE PROTECTION Wear close fitting goggles or visor when handling, e.g. sampling.

OTHER PROTECTION Wear normal industrial workwear to prevent skin contact.




Stability and reactivity

STABILITY TO HEAT Stable above 0°C and at least up to 120°C in the absence of air.

REACTIVITY Reacts with oxidising agents. Upon exposure to air, slowly oxidises to the acid.

REACTION WITH WATER None

POLYMERISATION HAZARD None

Disposal considerations

Waste Product Recycle if possible, but if not, then incineration is recommended since the material is odiferous.

Packaging Steel drums can be cleaned and re-used if in good condition, or recycle as scrap metal. Plastic IBC bodies will pick up odour, so re -use will not be possible. Either clean out, shred and landfill, if permitted or clean, granulate and recycle the plastic granules.

NOTE
Incineration must be carried out in a suitable high temperature incinerator operated by a registered disposal company. User must ensure that this complies with all local /National laws.
