Wash off with soap and plenty of water. If symptoms persist, call a physician. Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder, sand.

Product arising from burning: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, water, hydrogen chloride.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: In case of fire wear self contained breathing apparatus.


Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Avoid any contact with spilt product or contaminated
surfaces.

Wear personal protective equipment (see 2.3.10).

Unprotected persons must be kept away.


Soak up or pump off spillage and collect in suitable

tightly closed waste containers which have to be labelled
according to TRGS 201.

Dispose according to local regulations.


Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Handling and storage

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates and, in case the substance is transported to other sites for further processing, the substance should be handled at these sites under the Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH regulation Article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at each manufacturing site.


Handling: Working procedures must always be designed so that contact with the skin and eyes is excluded. Avoid inhalation of the substance. As far as possible, closed equipment has to be used during transfer and metered feeding as well as during sampling. In the case of handling the substance in open systems, extract any vapours or aerosols which might form directly at the point of origin. If technical extraction or ventilation measures are not possible or are insufficient, suitable respiratory protection (e.g. filter apparatus, Filter ABEK-P2) must be worn. Even if skin contact is only possible for short periods, tested protective gloves (e.g. made of nitrile rubber) and suitable protective clothing must be worn. Safe eye protection (e.g. tight-fitting safety goggles) is absolutely essential. Adequate washing facilities and conspicuously labelled eye-douche stations should be provided in the immediate vicinity of the working area. After contact with the skin, the affected parts of the body should be immediately thoroughly cleaned using soap and plenty of water. Contaminated clothing must be changed immediately. Special skin-protection and skin-care measures are recommended. A skin-protection plan must be drawn up. If vapours or aerosols can develop, due to the potential explosion risk, potential sources of ignition should be removed out of the working area. In addition, measures should be taken to prevent electrostatic discharges. Storage: Store the substance in the original containers in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep them tightly closed and secure them against falling by taking the appropriate measures. Avoid residues on the outside of the containers. Do not store in heat or direct sunlight. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Apply the VCI concept for the Mixed Storage of Chemicals. Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Drums, 200 L.
