- Skin: Remove contaminated clothes and shoes immediately. Wash affected area with soap or mild detergent and large amount of water until no evidence of chemical remains (15-20 minutes). If any sympthoms appear seek medical advise. - Ingestion: If swallowed wash out mouth with water provided person is conscious. Do not induce vomit. Seek medical advise .

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, CO2, foam, dry chemical powders

Product arising from burning: Thermal decomposition or combustion may include toxic and hazardous fumes .

Protective equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure demand and protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection to avoid contact and prevent inhalation .
Sweep up with inert absorbent material, and clean with plenty of water. Ventilate area.
Send to the storage waiting for disposal procedures.
In the event of accidental release or leakage, prevent the substance from reaching surface, subterranean water or the sewage system.

Exposure controls / personal protection

The choice of appropriate engineering controls must be based on risk assessments performed by the employer .

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses according to standard EN 166; face-shield
Hand protection: Gloves resistant to chemical products according to standard EN and Community directives. The material of the gloves must be waterproof and stable for contact with the substance. Choose the material of the gloves on the basis of the breakthrough time, rates of permeation and degradation.
Body protection: Choose the suitable protective gear according to the activity and the exposure.
Respiratory protection: If the risk assessment envisages the need for self-contained breathing apparatus, use respirators tested and approved by competent certifying bodies, such as NIOSH (USA) and CEN (EU). For short and minimum exposure, use a full-face mask (EN 136) with built-in respirator; for more intense and long-lasting exposure, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Stability and reactivity

The substance is stable in normal temperature and pressure conditions and if stored in closed containers in a cool, ventilated area.
Incompatible materials: Strong oxidising agents, strong bases, alcohols.

Disposal considerations

Refer to Community/national/local waste disposal regulations
