First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from exposure area and allow to rest in fresh air.
Seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate with clean running water for 15 minutes. If
irritation occurs, consult a physician.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and wash promptly exposed areas
with soap and water. If irritation occurs, consult a
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water. Seek medical attention urgently.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water.

Product arising from burning: May combust in the event of a fire producing noxious fumes
including oxides of nitrogen and carbon.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards, as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.

Avoid dust formation by absorbing spillages with an
industrial vacuum machine sweep up in to waste containers.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original substance containers.

Clean the spillage area with water.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

- Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

- Chemical protective clothing to Standard EN368

- Eye protection to Standard EN166.

Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,
be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards, such as a dust mask
conforming to EN149 FFP1.

These measures should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Keep containers tightly closed at room temperature and away
from moisture. Store in darkness but may be used/formulated
in light.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The notified chemical is packaged in double polyethylene
bags and covered by fibre drum. All fibre drums have the
capacity of 90 L; 443 mm (outside diameter) X 657 mm

While the inner and outer polyethylene bags are made of LDPE
and HDPE co-extruded; 80 micron meter, 710 mm x 1300 mm.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None known.

Chemical reaction with water: None which is hazardous.

Dust explosion: Under normal conditions of use this material does not
present a significant explosion hazard. However, like most
organic compounds it is combustible and may form a dust
explosion if widely dispersed in air.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it
may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable as no hazardous properties have been
identified as a result of the notification.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions should be
mixed with inert material (eg. sand or soil) and be
disposed of by landfill at an authorised tip in accordance
with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg. carbon and
Nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Although minimal quantities of the substance may be
discharged directly to the sewage system or aqueous
environment (during cleaning of culture dishes, contaminated
clothings etc no adverse effects on the aqueous enviornment
are anticipated.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable.
