Advice to Doctor

Treat symptomatically. Aspiration into the lungs may cause chemical pneumonitis. Dermatitis may result from

prolonged or repeated exposure.

Fire-fighting measures

Specific Hazards

Combustion is likely to give rise to a complex mixture of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases, including

carbon monoxide and unidentified organic and inorganic compounds.

Extinguishing Media

Foam and dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide, sand or earth may be used for small fires only.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media

Water in jet. Use of halon extinguishers should be avoided for environmental reasons.

Protective Equipment

Proper protective equipment including breathing apparatus must be worn when approaching a fire in a confined


Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear PVC, Neoprene or nitrile rubber gloves. Wear rubber knee length

safety boots and PVC Jacket and Trousers. Wear safety glasses or full face shield if splashes are likely to occur.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent from spreading or entering into drains, ditches or rivers by using sand, earth, or other appropriate

barriers. Inform local authorities if this cannot be prevented.

Clean-up Methods - Small Spillages

Absorb liquid with sand or earth. Sweep up and remove to a suitable, clearly marked container for disposal in

accordance with local regulations.

Clean-up Methods - Large Spillages

Prevent from spreading by making a barrier with sand, earth or other containment material. Reclaim liquid directly

or in an absorbent. Dispose of as for small spills.

Handling and storage


Use local exhaust ventilation if there is risk of inhalation of vapours, mists or aerosols. Avoid prolonged or repeated

contact with skin. When handling product in drums, safety footwear should be worn and proper handling

equipment should be used. Prevent spillages. Cloth, paper and other materials that are used to absorb

spills present a fire hazard. Avoid their accumulation by disposing of them safely and immediately. In addition

to any specific recommendations given for controls of risks to health, safety and the environment, an assessment

of risks must be made to help determine controls appropriate to local circumstances. Exposure to this

product should be reduced as low as reasonably practicable. Reference should be made to the Health and

Safety Executive's publication 'COSHH Essentials'. When using do not eat or drink.


Keep in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Use properly labelled and closeable containers. Avoid direct sunlight,

heat sources, and strong oxidizing agents. Further guidance maybe obtained from the local environmental

agency office.

Storage Temperatures: 0ºC Minimum. 50ºC Maximum.

Recommended Materials: For containers or container linings, use mild steel or high density polyethylene.

Unsuitable Materials: For containers or container linings, avoid PVC.

Other Information

Polyethylene containers should not be exposed to high temperatures because of possible risk of distortion.

Exposure Controls

The use of personal protective equipment is only one aspect of an integrated approach to the Control Of Substances

Hazardous to Health.

The management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 require employers to identify and evaluate

the risks to health and to implement appropriate measures to eliminate or minimise those risks. The choice of

personal protective equipment is highly dependent upon local conditions, e.g. exposure to other chemical

substances and micro-organisms, thermal hazards (protection from extremes of cold and heat), electrical

hazards, mechanical hazards and appropriate degree of manual dexterity required to undertake an activity.

Whilst the content of this section may inform the choice of personal protective equipment used, the limitations

of any information which can be provided must be fully understood, e.g. personal protective equipment

chosen to protect employees from occasional splashes maybe entirely inadequate for activities involving partial

or complete immersion.If the levels of oil mist or vapour in air are likely to exceed the occupational exposure

standards then consideration should be given to the use of local exhaust ventilation to reduce personal


The choice of personal protective equipment should only be undertaken in the light of a full risk assessment

by a suitably qualified competent person ( e.g. a professionally qualified occupational hygienist).

Effective protection is only achieved by correctly fitting and well maintained equipment and employers should

ensure that appropriate training is given. All personal protective equipment should be regularly inspected and

replaced if defective.

Respiratory Protection

If oil mist cannot be controlled, a respirator fitted with an organic vapour filter (for substances with boiling

point >65°C), combined with a particulate pre-filter should be used. Half masks (EN 149) or valved half masks

(EN 405) in combination with type A2 (EN 141) and P2/3 (EN 143) pre-filters maybe considered.

Hand Protection

Chemical protective gloves are made from a wide range of materials, but there is no single glove material ( or

combination of materials) which gives unlimited resistance to any individual or combination of substances or

preparations. The extent of the breakthrough time will be affected by a combination of factors which include

permeation, penetration, degradation, use pattern ( full immersion, occasional contacts) and how the glove is

stored when not in use.

Theoretical maximum levels of protection are seldom achieved in practice and the actual level of protection

can be difficult to assess. Effective breakthrough time should be used with care and a margin of safety should

be applied. HSE guidance on protective gloves recommends a 75% safety factor to be applied to any figures

obtained in a laboratory test. Nitrile gloves may offer relatively long breakthrough times and slow permeation

rates. Test data, e.g breakthrough data obtained through test standard EN374-3:1994 are available from

reputable equipment suppliers.

Personal hygiene is a key element of effective hand care. Gloves must only be worn on clean hands. After

using gloves, hands should be washed and dried thoroughly. A non perfumed moisturiser should be applied.

Eye Protection

Goggles conforming to a minimum standard of EN 166 345B should be considered if there is a possibility of

eye contact with the product through splashing. Higher rated eye protection must be considered for highly

hazardous operations or work areas. For example, employees involved in metalworking operations such as

chipping, grinding or cutting may require additional protection to avert injury from fast moving particles or

broken tools.

Body Protection

Minimise all forms of skin contact. Overalls and shoes with oil resistant soles should be worn. Launder overalls

and undergarments regularly.

Environmental Exposure Controls

Minimise release to the environment. An environmental assessment must be made to ensure compliance with

local environmental legislation.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable.

Conditions to Avoid: Extremes of temperature and direct sunlight.

Materials to Avoid: Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous Decomposition Products: Hazardous decomposition products are not expected to form during normal storage.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically

or technically feasible, and such waste material will be disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it may be possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Recycle or dispose of in accordance with prevailing regulations, by a recognised collector or contractor. The competence of the contractor to deal satisfactorily with this type of product should be established beforehand.

Do not pollute the soil, water or environment with the waste product.

Recycle or dispose of containers in accordance with the legislation in force with a recognised collector or contractor.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not classified as 'dangerous'.  Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with inert material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by

landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local regulations.  Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment

processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon oxides) could be formed.  Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,

adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be unlikely.  Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.  Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Disposal via a local waste oil collection point is

recommended.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not recommended by the general public.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.  Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: None.
