First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in
recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air. If difficulties occur after vapour/aerosol has been inhaled,
remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water. If symptoms persist, seek medical advice.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water, do not induce vomiting, seek medical
attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: No significant reaction of the human body to the product known.
Hazards: No hazards anticipated.
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:
dry powder, carbon dioxide, alcohol-resistant foam, water spray
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately,
do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated
extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Avoid inhalation. Ensure adequate ventilation. Sources of ignition
should be kept well clear.
Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains. Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: 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.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Adequate extraction of the vapours is necessary
when working with open containers.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep away from water. Segregate from acids. Segregate from foods and animal feeds.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.
Keep container in a well-ventilated place. Protect against moisture. Protect from direct sunlight.
Protect from temperatures below: 5 °C
Protect from temperatures above: 30 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with workplace control parameters
none
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for
gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A) Suitable
respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Self-contained breathing
apparatus.
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures
Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray. When using, do not eat,
drink or smoke. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. At the
end of the shift the skin should be cleaned and skin-care agents applied.

Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Ignitable air mixtures can form when the product is heated above the flash point and/or when sprayed
or atomized. Evolution of heat under influence of acids. Reacts with water and acids.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid humidity.
Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
acids, water

ethyl formate, ethanol

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
The waste codes are manufacturer's recommendations based on the designated use of the product.
Other use and special waste disposal treatment on customer's location may require different
waste-code assigments.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
