First-aid measures

General information: As a general rule, in case of doubt or if symptoms persist or you feel unwell, immediately call a POISON CENTER or doctor/physician.

In case of inhalation: If difficulties occur after vapour/aerosol has been inhaled, remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable and well-ventilated for breathing. Seek medical attention.  

In case of skin contact: Wipe away excess material with dry towel and then wash affected areas thoroughly with plenty of water for several minutes.

In case of eye contact: Wash affected eyes for several minutes under running water. Remove contact lenses if present and easy to do – continue rinsing. Eyelids should be held away from the eyeball to ensure thorough rinsing. Seek medical attention  in case of eye irritation.

In case of ingestion: Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water. Do not induce vomiting due to aspiration hazard. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hip to prevent aspiration. Get medical attention.

In case of body contact: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing.

Self-protection of the first aider: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Notes to physician: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed: No specific information.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: No specific information.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide, foam, dry chemical, water spray

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reason: No specific information.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Thermal decomposition and burning will produce toxic fumes, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.  

Advice for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full chemical-protective clothing. Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater. Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulation.

Hazard decomposition products: Harmful vapours. Evolution of fumes/fog. The substance mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Other information: Avoid whirling up the material/product because of the danger of dust explosion. Dusty conditions may ignite explosively in the presence of an ignition source causing flash fire. Do not enter fire area without proper protection. Fight fire from safe distance/protected location. Move container from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not scatter spilled material with high-pressure water streams. Use agents suitable for type of surrounding fire. Avoid breathing hazardous vapours, keep upwind.

Prevent fire-fighting water from entering surface water or groundwater. Contaminated water from fire hoses or sprinkler etc must be prevented from draining into watercourses, sewers or the ground water. Sufficient measures must be taken to retain water used for extinguishing. Contaminated water and soil must be disposed of in conformity with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Remove all sources of ignition. Avoid dust formation. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Use personal protective clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapours/dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Large amount: Pump off product.

Residues: Pick up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, earth etc.). Place into approved  waste containers. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: General advice: Handle the substance in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Use  in well-ventilated areas.

Handling requirement: Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation. Closed containers should only be opened in well-ventilated areas. The substance is light sensitive, store protected from light.  

Fire and explosion hazard: This substance is not expected to present an explosion hazard during normal transportation and storage operations. However, when dispersed in air and subject to sufficient energy of ignition, it may pose a dust explosion hazard. Minimize the energy of ignition, it may pose a dust explosion hazard. Minimize the potential for dust explosion by eliminating/controlling ignition sources (bond and ground), and by using good housekeeping practices during storage, transfer, handling and use to avoid excessive dust accumulation. Protection against fire and explosion: avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Protection against fire and explosion: Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks and open flame. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Condition and materials to avoid: Light, moisture, oxidizing conditions, excessively high temperatures, sparks and open flame.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place away from strong oxidizers when not in use and during transport, prevent contamination with foreign materials. Store protected from light. Keep the substance away from heat, sparks, open flame and other ignition sources. Keep away from food and drink. Store in the original container securely closed. Protect from moisture and physical damage.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls: Exposure limit(s) should be monitored using suitable analytical equipments. Normal ventilation for standard manufacturing procedures is generally adequate. Local exhaust should be used when large amounts are released. Mechanical ventilation should be used in low or enclosed places. Refrigerant concentration monitors may be necessary to determine vapour concentrations in work areas prior to use of torches or other open flames, or if employees are entering enclosed areas.  

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

Hygiene measures: Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food. During synthesis or formulation, follow good industrial hygiene and safety practices.

Eye protection: Safety goggle is recommended.

Skin protection: Protective working clothes, closed footwear.

Hand protection: Wear chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374). Gloves should be worn at all times when handling substance and/or mixtures containing the substance. Gloves must be inspected prior to use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching glove’s outer surface) to avoid skin contact with this chemical. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands. The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the substance or/and mixtures containing the substance.

Body protection: Impermeable protective work clothing, closed footwear.
