Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, foam, quenching powder, carbon dioxide (CO2)
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides, organic products of decomposition.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Advice for firefighters
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Wear personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Absorb with liquid-binding material e.g. sand, saw dust universal binder
Collect in suitable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.
Additional advice
Isolate and seal off defective containers immediately.

Handling and storage

Handling
Precautions for safe handling
Local ventilation.
Always close container tightly after removal of product.
Ensure tightness at all times.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Keep away from humidity.
Explosion protection is recommended in case the explosion limits for the following substance might be exceeded: Ethanol.
Danger of explosion from residual product fumes; therefore avoid spark production through cutting, grinding, or welding work in the area of the container.
When repairs of the production system are to be made (e.g. welding work), the section to be repaired must be essentially free of product.
Storage
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Storage stability
12 month 10 - 40 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Engineering measures
Ensure suitable suction/aeration at the work place and with operational machinery.
see also section 7.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type ABEK) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Use only respiratory protection equipment with CE-symbol including four digit test number.
The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves made from a tough material.
Glove material for example, nitrile rubber
Material thickness 0,35 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)
Material thickness 0,4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
The rupture time and material thickness data are guideline values! Exact rupture time / material thickness data can be obtained from the protective glove manufacturer.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
goggles
Skin and body protection
Chemical protection suit, single-use protection suit (antistatic)
(Solvent-resistant)
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Preventive skin protection recommended.
Protective measures
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of directive 89/686/EEC and amendments (CE certification).
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to directive 89/686/EEC and amendments.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
If workplace exposure limits are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.

Stability and reactivity

Possibility of hazardous reactions
When heated, formation of explosive vapour/air mixtures.

Incompatible materials
Reaction with water, acids and alcaline solutions., Formation of ethanol.

Hazardous decomposition products
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide (CO2), organic products of decomposition, Ethanol

Disposal considerations

Product
Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.

Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
