Fire-fighting measures

--Extinguishing media--
Suitable extinguishing media : Dry chemical
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Water spray
Unsuitable extinguishing media : High volume water jet

--Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture--
Specific hazards during fire fighting : Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

--Advice for firefighters--
Special protective equipment
for fire-fighters : Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.
Further information : Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.
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--
Personal precautions : Use personal protective equipment.

--Environmental precautions--
Environmental precautions : Prevent product from entering drains.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

--Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up--
Methods for cleaning up : Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

--Precautions for safe handling--
Advice on safe handling : Do not breathe vapours/dust.
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
For personal protection see section 8 of the SDS.
Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.
Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.
Advice on protection against
fire and explosion : Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

--Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities--
Requirements for storage
areas and containers : Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.
Further information on
storage conditions: Ambient / 10-30°C (50-85°F)
Dry, well ventilated, preferably full, hermetically sealed
Advice on common storage : Protect against light.
Other data : No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

--Control parameters--
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

--Exposure controls--
-Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection : Use only in well-ventilated areas.
In case a risk analysis proved the cartridge respirator as acceptable, use type:
ABEK-P3 (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls.
In absence of engineering controls, use self-contained
breathing apparatus or full face supplied air respirators.
Use respirators and components tested and approved under
appropriate government standards such as CEN (EU).

Hand protection : Use gloves when handling substance in open systems.
Inspect gloves prior to use. Train operators for proper use.
If only incidental exposure is expected: (work without direct contact to substance)
use gloves tested according EN 16523-1 breakthrough times at least 10 minutes,
tested for chemicals indicated in chapter 3 of this SDS. Change gloves frequently.
If direct skin contact is expected: use gloves tested according to EN 16523-1,
tested for chemicals indicated in chapter 3 of this SDS. Permeation time must exceed contact time.

Eye protection : Use safety glasses and faceshield tested according to EN 166.

Skin and body protection : Wear working clothes covering arms and legs.
The type of protective equipment must be selected according
to the concentration and amount of the dangerous substance
at the specific workplace. Use apron or complete chemical suit if exposure is expected.

Hygiene measures : Do not eat, drink or smoke during work.
Wash and dry hands after finished working.
Protective measures : Exposure assessment: Exposure is dependent on the product
being handled, the potential for chemical release, and any
resulting airborne concentrations or dermal contact. Since
product handling and release scenarios vary, and no two
workplaces are exactly alike, it is recommended that the
potential for exposure be assessed prior to the product’s use
or introduction. Exposure assessments should be performed
by an occupational hygienist, industrial hygienist, or other
qualified occupational or environmental health professional.
An exposure assessment should be conducted to determine
the efficacy of any ventilation and the need for additional
respiratory protection.
PPE is always the last resort to avoid exposure. In any case
technical and organisational measures have to be explored
and used prior to the selection of PPE. The PPE selection is
for operators trained to work with chemicals according to good
industrial hygiene and safety practice. Operators have to be
trained and used to PPE handling.

Environmental exposure controls
General advice : Prevent product from entering drains.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform
respective authorities.
