First-aid measures

Inhalation : Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrestoccurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Obtain medical attention if symptoms occur. If unconscious, placein recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt orwaistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to bekept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed andthe exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Obtain medical attention if symptoms occur. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.Skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Obtain medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.Eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses.Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable: In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2.Not suitable: None known.Special exposure hazards: No specific fire or explosion hazard. Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.Hazardous combustion products: Decomposition products may include the following materials: carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, metal oxide/oxidesSpecial protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment . Hazard of slipping on spilt product.Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).Large spill: Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep upmaterial and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material andplace in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via alicensed waste disposal contractor.Small spill: Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via alicensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment . Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Emptycontainers retain product residue and can be hazardous.Storage: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilatedarea, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.Packaging materials: Recommended: Use original container

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limit values: Not available.Recommended monitoring procedures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation tochemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances.Occupational exposure controls:Technical measures: No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control worker exposure to airbornecontaminants. If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or statutory limits.Personal protection measures: Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safeworking limits of the selected respirator.Recommended: Dust-protection mask if there is a risk of dust formation.Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemicalproducts if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. After contamination with product change the gloves immediately and dispose of them according to relevant national and local regulations <1 hours (breakthrough time): rubber gloves.Eye protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoidexposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts. Recommended: safety glasses with side-shieldsSkin protection: Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved andshould be approved by a specialist before handling this product.Recommended: Wear protective clothingHygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminatedclothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.Technical measures: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements ofenvironmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: The product is stable.Conditions to avoid: In the case of dusty organic products the possibility of a dust explosion should always be considered. No hazardous reactionswhen used as directed.Hazardous decomposition products: Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous decomposition products should not be produced.

Disposal considerations

Methods of disposal: Examine possibilities for re-utilisation. Product residues and uncleaned empty containers should be packaged, sealed, labelled, and disposed of or recycled according to relevant national and local regulations. Where large quantities are concerned, consult thesupplier. When uncleaned empty containers are passed on, the recipient must be warned of any possible hazard that may be caused by residues. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste List (EWL) should be used. It is among the tasks of the polluter to assign the waste to waste codes specific to industrial sectors and processes according to the European Waste List (EWL).Hazardous waste: Within the present knowledge of the supplier, this product is not regarded as hazardous waste, as defined by EU Directive 91/689/EEC.
