First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation:

Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing,

if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or

oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to

give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects

persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical

attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a

collar, tie, belt or waistband.

ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Move exposed person to

fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the

exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the

exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting

unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should

be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if adverse

health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by mouth to an

unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical

attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a

collar, tie, belt or waistband

skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and

shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse.

Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse

eye contact: Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water,

occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact

lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated

promptly by a physician.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable: Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.

Not suitable: None known.

Special exposure hazards: No specific fire or explosion hazard.

Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if

there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable

training.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from

entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Provide adequate ventilation.

Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate

personal protective equipment

Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains

and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental

pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Handling and storage

Handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see section 8). Eating, drinking

and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and

processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and

smoking. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest. Keep in the

original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept

tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be

hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Storage: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from

direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible

materials (see section 10) and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and

sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully

resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers.

Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls: No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to

control worker exposure to airborne contaminants. If this product contains

ingredients with exposure limits, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or

other engineering controls to keep worker exposure below any recommended or

statutory limits.

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.

Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying with an approved

standard if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary. Respirator selection must

be based on known or anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and

the safe working limits of the selected respirator.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should

be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates

this is necessary. Recommended: nitrile rubber,.,PVC Breakthrough Time: <1

hours

Eye protection: Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk

assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists

or dusts.

Skin protection: Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task

being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist

before handling this product.

Environmental exposure controls: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure

they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some

cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process

equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: none

Chemical reaction with water: none

Dust explosion: none

Disposal considerations
