First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water.
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.
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:
foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder, water spray
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Burning produces harmful and toxic fumes.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent
systems. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official
regulations. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use personal protective clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,
kieselguhr). Dispose of contaminated material as prescribed.
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
Wear suitable protective clothing and gloves. Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Keep container tightly closed.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Temperature class: T3 (Autoignition temperature >200 °C).
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep only in the original container in a cool, well-ventilated
place. Keep container tightly closed.
Storage stability:
Storage temperature: 15 - 25 °C
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
none
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:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
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:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures
Do not breathe vapour/spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Handle in accordance with good
industrial hygiene and safety practice.
