First-aid measures

GENERAL ADVICE

Remove victim out of the danger area. Change contaminated, saturated clothing. When in doubt, or if symptoms are observed, seek medical advice.

INHALATION

Remove victim to fresh air and keep warm and at rest. In case of respiratory tract irritation, consult a physician.

CONTACT WITH SKIN

Wash area immediately with plenty of soap and water. If skin reactions develop, consult a physician.

EYE CONTACT

If in eyes, flush eyes immediately with plenty of running water for 10 to 15 minutes holding eyelids apart. Consult an ophthalmologist.

INGESTION

If swallowed, if conscious, rinse the mouth with plenty of water and obtain immediate medical attention. Water can be drunk in little sips (dilution).

IMPORTANT SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS (ACUTE AND DELAYED)

No information available

INDICATION OF ANY IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND SPECIAL TREATMENT REQUIRED

None. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Sand, foam, carbon dioxide (CO2), dry extinguishing powder.

UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

High power water jet.

SPECIAL HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE SUBSTANCE

None.

ADVICE FOR FIREFIGHTERS

In case of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Do not inhale explosion and combustion gases. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. Do not allow water to enter drains or surface water.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

Use personal protective equipment. Remove all sources of ignition. Provide adequate ventilation.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS

Do not allow to enter drains or surface water. Prevent spread over a wide area (diking or oil barriers). Retain any contaminated water used to clean the area, and dispose as chemical waste. In case of gas escape or entry into waterways, soil or drains, inform the relevant responsible authorities.

METHODS FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING SPILLAGES

Absorb with liquid-binding material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid- or universal binding agents).

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING

All work places should be designed to exclude inhalation of vapours or sprays/mists and skin and eye contact.

Good hygiene practices should be observed. If local exhaust ventilation is not possible or insufficient, then the entire workspace should be ventilated.

PROTECTIVE MEASURES

- Fire Prevention:

Keep away from sources of ignition. No smoking.

- Advice for General Occupational Hygiene:

When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Do not sniff the substance. Wash hands after handling.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY INCOMPATABILITIES

Floors should be impervious, resistant to liquids and easy to clean. Provide retaining containers e.g. floor pans without outflows. Store only in original container. Keep container tightly closed. Ensure adequate ventilation of the storage area.

FURTHER INFORMATION ON STORAGE CONDITIONS

Protect against heat, UV radiation/sunlight.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures

None

2. Organisational protection measures

As a minimum, standard preventative measures while handling and working with materials (e.g. in compliance with TRGS 500).

3. Hand protection

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) gloves with long cuffs in compliance with DIN EN 374

4. Feet protection:

No specific personal protective equipment recommended.

5. Body protection:

No specific personal protective equipment recommended.

6. Eye protection

Safety glasses with side splash protection

7. Respiratory protection

If workplace exhaust or ventilation is insufficient, respiratory protection must be worn.

Suitable respiratory protection apparatus: Combination filtering Device (EN 14387)

Additional measures for respiratory protection: Filter types A, B, C and K.

Class 1:  maximum permitted contaminant concentration in inhaled air = 1000 mL/m³ (0.1 % by vol.)

Class 2: Maximum permitted contaminant concentration in inhaled air = 5000 mL/m³ (0.5 % by vol.)

Class 3: Maximum permitted contaminant concentration in inhaled air = 10,000 mL/m³ (1.0 % by vol.)

Remarks: Use only respiratory protection equipment with the CE-symbol and the four digit test number. Observe the wear time limits in accordance with local regulations (e.g. GefStoffV) in combination with rules for the use of respiratory protection apparatus (e.g. BGR 190).
