First-aid measures

Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Remove patient from the contaminated area and lead to fresh air(O). If breathing is difficult, have qualified personnel administer oxygen. If the patient is not breathing, have qualified personnel perform artificial respiration (O). If the patient is unconscious perform assisted respiration (AMBU ball or oxygen therapy). If symptoms persist, provide hospitalisation under observation. Do not administer adrenaline. PROVIDE MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY.

In case of contact with eyes, wash IMMEDIATELY and abundantly with running water, with eyelid open, for 10 – 15 minutes. If irritation persists, contact an eye doctor.

In case of contact with skin, wash contaminated parts with soap and water. Rinse with water and remove contaminated clothing. (O)If irritation phenomena appear, provide medical attention.

DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING, the PREPARATION IS NOT SOLUBLE. DO NOT administer drinks. If the patient is conscious, administer as a dilutant 200ml (adult), 50ml (children) a suspension of activated carbon in water (10g/100ml). Induce vomiting. If the patient is unconscious or is experiencing convulsions, do not administer anything by mouth, do not induce vomiting, and keep the patient warm while awaiting medical assistance. (O)If the patient vomits spontaneously, prevent suffocation by placing the patient’s head between the knees: PROVIDE MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. Medical personnel will be able to perform a gastric lavage only after having preventively aspirated and freed the airways.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents
Water, water spray, carbon dioxide, foam(B), chemical powder(B)
Unsuitable extinguishing agents
Direct water stream on the product

Special hazards deriving from the substance or mixture
The product develops toxic and irritating fumes

Recommendations for fire-fighting personnel
Remove all people not essential to the task at hand. Allow only well trained persons who are informed on the product’s hazards to intervene. Intervene wearing a self contained breathing apparatus. In case of intervention in close proximity, wear anti-acid overalls providing total protection. Remove all sources of ignition
Vapours are heavier than air and tend to deposit at ground level. If fanned, flames can cover a vast area. When fire is put out with water, pay attention to burns from vapours

Other precautions:
If possible, remove recipients exposed to heat, otherwise cool them down with abundant water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protection equipment and emergency procedures
Remove non-trained personnel not involved in operations from all sources of ignition. Use anti-spark equipment for operations.

Environmental precautions
Avoid spilling. collect the product and clean-up equipment used in containers and store in a confined area. Mechanically insert the product into sealable and labelled containers.
In case of significant spillage, the area must be evacuated.

Containment and clean-up methods and materials
Collect with sawdust, sand or inert absorbent material (bentonite). Collect into labelled drums. Prevent and remove all sources of ignition, and provide suitable aeration. During handling, use necessary PPE

Handling and storage

Precautionary measures for safe handling
Avoid contact or inhalation of vapours. Use protective clothing. Use a face mask with an ABEK filter for organic substances in presence of vapours. If acid for HF is highly corrosive. Use anti-spark equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including incompatibilities
Lacquered iron drums, steel containers. Store in original containers, hermetically closed and sealed
Provide waterproof, anti-corrosion electrical systems. Inform personnel of the product’s hazards. Install emergency showers in the vicinity of storage areas. Handle containers wearing anti-acid overalls and boots, gloves, a helmet and visor. Lorries must be loaded wearing a visor, helmet and gloves. Do not keep the product in sections of tubing and/or circuits demarcated between two closed valves or in recipients not equipped with safety air vents. Wash hands carefully after use.

Packing/transport materials:
Lacquered iron, steel.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Aerate work areas. If a risk of emissions exists, provide suitable air ventilation for the area.

Respiratory protection
Mask with filter for organic substances. Use an ABEK combined filter if the product forms vapours.

Protection for hands:
Neoprene gloves or in vinyl materials (PVC).
PVA (polyvinylacetate) gloves or in nitrilic rubber

Protection for eyes:
Eyewear for chemical risks with seal/facial screen, in case of risk of splashing.

Protection for skin:
Wear protective overalls. Work clothes must provide complete cover. Overalls/boots in neoprene or vinyl materials if the risk of splashing exists.

Specific hygiene measures:
Visible showers and fountains:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes, and inhalation of vapours. Wash hands after use on completion of work. Keep work clothes separate.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability
Stabile: No thermal decomposition when the product is stored and handled correctly

Possibility of dangerous reactions
Data not available.

Conditions to be avoided
Sparks or flames. Do not expose to sources of heat.

Incompatible materials
No special reactions are developed if used correctly. Reacts violently with light materials (Na, K, etc.). Reacts violently with sulphonitrate mixture (sulphuric acid plus nitric acid). Incompatible with highly oxidant substances, such as permanganates, dychromates, strong acids, halogens and their mixtures.

Hazardous decomposition products if stored and handled correctly no hazardous decomposition products are produced. CO, CO2, HF HCl and other toxic
gases are formed in case of fire.
Toxic fumes (HF, HCl)

Disposal considerations

Waste processing procedures
Avoid spilling, and dispose of in a chemical incinerator equipped with a post-combustion chamber and scrubber.

Treatment of packaging/containers
Wash all packaging abundantly with hot water, avoiding inhalations, treat effluents as waste. Clean empty packaging can be reused, recycled or eliminated in accordance with local/national directives in force.
