First-aid measures

General advice
Immediate medical attention is required.

Eye contact
Immediate medical attention is required. Immediately flush with plenty of
water. After initial flushing, remove any contact lenses and continue
flushing for at least 15 minutes. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. Do not
rub affected area.

Skin contact
Immediate medical attention is required. Wash off immediately with soap
and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. Apply
PEG/EtOH solution liberally to affected area. Allow to remain 15 to 30
seconds, then wash with water. Continue cycle of water - PEG/EtOH
solution for at least 15 minutes. (PEG/EtOH solution consists of 2 parts
polyethylene glycol 400 to 1 part ethanol. For external use only). Finish
decontamination with thorough washing using soap and water.

Ingestion
Immediate medical attention is required. Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse
mouth. Ingest immediately about 350 ml (5 ml/kg body weight) of activated
charcoal slurry. Note: To prepare activated charcoal slurry, mix thoroughly
50 g of activated charcoal in 400 ml (about 2 cups) water. Never give
anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician or poison
control center immediately.

Inhalation
Move to fresh air. Call a physician or poison control center immediately. If
not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

Protection of first-aiders
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and
clothing.

Main symptoms
Salivation. Tremors. Convulsions. Erythema. Burn. Dizziness. Hypoactivity.

Notes to physician
Product is a corrosive material. Use of gastric lavage or emesis is
contraindicated. Possible perforation of stomach or esophagus should be
investigated. Do not give chemical antidotes. Asphyxia from glottal edema
may occur. Marked decrease in blood pressure may occur with moist
rales, frothy sputum, and high pulse pressure. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media
Dry chemical, Foam, Water spray, Carbon dioxide (CO2).

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective gear.

Special hazard
The product causes burns of eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Burning produces obnoxious and toxic
fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Use personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and
clothing. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Refer to protective measures listed in sections 7 and 8.

Advice for emergency responders
Wear personal protective equipment. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water
system. Should not be released into the environment. Prevent product from entering drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up.
Dike to collect large liquid spills.
Soak up with inert absorbent material. Pick up and transfer to properly labeled containers. Keep in suitable,
closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling
Provide adequate information, instruction and training for operators. Wear personal protective equipment.
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation,
wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Components with occupational
exposure limits rsp. biological occupational exposure limits requiring monitoring. When using, do not eat,
drink or smoke. Wash hands and face before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Remove
and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed out of
the workplace. Provide regular cleaning of equipment, work area and clothing. Keep away from food, drink
and animal feeding stuffs.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep in properly labeled containers.
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures
Handle only in a place equipped with local exhaust (or other appropriate
exhaust). Drain down and flush system prior to equipment break-in or
maintenance. Carry out filling operations only at stations with exhaust
ventilation facilities. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are
close to the workstation location.

Personal protective equipment

Eye/face protection
Tightly fitting safety goggles. Face-shield.

Skin and body protection
Wear as appropriate: Impervious clothing; Impervious gloves; Boots;
Chemical resistant apron.

Hand protection
Fluorinated rubber. Chloroprene. Polyvinylchloride. Break through time.
>60 min. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and
breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also
take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the
product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion. Be aware that in
daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be
notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN
374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

Respiratory Protection
When workers are facing concentrations above the exposure limit they
must use appropriate certified respirators.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability
Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
None under normal processing.

Conditions to avoid
Heat, flames and sparks. Exposure to air or moisture over prolonged periods.

Incompatible materials
Incompatible with strong acids and bases. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, copper alloys, aluminum.

Hazardous decomposition products.
Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapors.

Disposal considerations

Waste from residues / unused products
Must be incinerated in a suitable incineration plant holding a permit
delivered by the competent authorities. The aqueous medium should be
given appropriate treatment as waste water in line with local regulations.

Contaminated packaging
Do not re-use empty containers. Dispose of in accordance with local
regulations. Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste
handling site for recycling or disposal. Can be incinerated, when in
compliance with local regulations. Where possible recycling is preferred to
disposal or incineration.

According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not
product specific, but application specific. Waste codes should be assigned
by the user based on the application for which the product was used.
