First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become
unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove
contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately inhale corticosteroid dose
aerosol.
On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see
section 2) and/or in section 11., Further symptoms are possible
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain
conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,
kieselguhr).
Cleaning operations should be carried out only while wearing breathing apparatus. Clean
contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental
regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take
to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.
Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found
in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Avoid aerosol formation.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.
Specific end use(s)
For the relevant identified use(s) listed in Section 1 the advice mentioned in this section 7 is to be
observed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with workplace control parameters
The substances without values are not listed in the occupational exposure regulations for the validity
area of this safety data sheet.
PNEC
freshwater: 0.00155 mg/l
marine water: 0.00016 mg/l
intermittent release: 0.0155 mg/l
sediment (freshwater): 5.24 mg/kg
sediment (marine water): 0.524 mg/kg
soil: 1.85 mg/kg
STP: 11 mg/l
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,
corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
natural rubber/natural latex (NR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of
dust).
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with the skin,
eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray. Wearing of closed work clothing is required
additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Take off immediately all contaminated
clothing. Store work clothing separately.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
