contaminated leather items such as shoes, belt and
watchbands.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If swallowed, seek medical attention. Do not induce
vomitting unless directed to do so by medical personnel.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical. Foam. Avoid using water which
may be not effective in extinguishing fire.

Product arising from burning: NOx, CO, CO2, H2O, HfO2

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing equipment
and protective fire fighting clothing (including fire
fighting helmet, coat, trousers, boots and gloves).

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Cover and soak up with a suitable absorbent material.
Dispose of according to applicable regulations (The
substance should be neutralised with isopropanol. Incinerate
under controlled conditions in accordance with all local and
national laws and regulations. Do not dump into sewers, on
the ground, or into any body of water).


Contain and sweep up the material. Collect in suitable and
properly labelled containers.


To minimise exposure of workers during clean up the use of
industry vacuum cleaners is recommended.


Empty containers must be disposed of as hazardous waste
unless all remaining product adhered to the container walls
has been removed. Hazard warning labels can then be removed
from the container walls and the container sent for
recycling or disposol in accordance with local regulations.
Washing must be disposed of safely and in accordance with
local regulations. If the container is reconditioned, the
reconditioning company should be made aware of the nature of
the original contents. Glass bottles in sealed steel drums
with appropriate shock absorbent material.

Handling and storage

Handling: Only adequately trained personnel should handle this

product. Practice care and caution to avoid any skin and eye
contact.

Storage: Store under an inert dry atmosphere such as nitrogen or
argon. Store in a cool, well ventilated area, away from
sources of ignition.

Exposure to water or moist air must be avoided.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Preparation:

Material will be shipped in C-430 tanks, which are 208 cm x
107 cm x 122 cm, have a 2.71 cubic metric shipping cube, a
tare weight of 635-816 kg and hold 1465 L (ca. 90% full). A
C-430 full of the solution containing the substance will
therefore weigh roughly 1800-2100 kg.
