Description of first aid measures
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Inhalation
If aerosol or mists are formed:
Move victims into fresh air.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult doctor immediately.
Skin contact
Wash off immediately with plenty of water.
Consult a doctor in the event of permanent skin irritation.
Eye contact
Keeping eyelid open, immediately rinse thoroughly for at least 5 minutes using plenty of water or, if necessary, eye rinsing solution.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult an ophthalmologist.
Ingestion
Have the mouth rinsed with water.
Consult a physician immediately.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
If required, therapy of irritative effect.
After absorbing large amounts of substance:
Liberation of reaction products (Methanol) can lead to symptoms of poisoning.
Possible signs of poisoning:
daze, dizziness, nausea, colicky abdominal pain, respiratory disturbance.
Symptoms upon increasing intoxication: dysopia, loss of eyesight.
Treatment:
Immediate gastric lavage. Antidote treatment, correction of acid-base balance.
Detection of substance (Methanol) possible in:
Blood
Antidote treatment: ethanol.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
high volume water jet
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
In case of fire: wear a self contained respiratory 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
Use personal protective equipment.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.
Suitable binder: universal absorbent, sawdust, sand (for damming up)

Handling and storage

Handling
Precautions for safe handling
Provide good ventilation or extraction.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Storage
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Exposure controls / personal protection

• Methanol
CAS-No. 67-56-1 EC-No.
200-659-6
Control parameters 200 ppm
266 mg/m3 Time Weighted Average (TWA):(EH40 WEL)

Control parameters Skin designation:(EU ELV)
Can be absorbed through the skin.


Engineering measures
Provide good ventilation or extraction.
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
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0.5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)
Material thickness 0.4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).
Eye protection
safety glasses

Disposal considerations

Product
With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
