First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash with plenty of water for 15 minutes. Seek medical
advice if irritation occurs.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove and launder contaminated clothing.

Wash affected area with soap and water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water fog, foam, dry chemical or dry powder may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and
silcon compounds together with styrene and some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained, positive pressure breathing apparatus and
full protective clothing should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing, see 2.3.1.

Absorb spillages with a suitable inert material. Carefully
transfer the spillage to waste containers. Dispose of waste
material in accordance with local regulations. Ventilate
area and wash spill site.

Avoid discharge to watercourses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance. Use local exhaust ventilation to control airborne
levels below the exposure guidelines. Personal protective

equipment, eye protection (eg chemical goggles) and
chemical-resistant gloves, boots and an apron or full body
suit should be worn depending on the operation to be
performed. Such protective equipment should conform to the
appropriate national or international standards. When
respiratory protection is required an approved air-purifying
respirator should be worn.

Storage: Store in sealed containers in the dark away from heat and
sources of ignition.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Preparations containing the substance are available in both
polyethylene or glass containers with collapsable Teflon(R)
sealed bag liners. Some formulations are stored and shipped
cold to protect the quality of the product and extend

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling from spillages or accidental
discharge is not economically or technically feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No treatment is practical to neutralise the hazardous
environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: The substance may be disposed of by landfill at an
authorised tip in accordance with local regulations. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration at a
licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local
regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed to remove
styrene and silicon compounds. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: The substance will only enter the public domain as part of
an article. Electronic goods containing the article may be
disposed of as for domestic waste unless local Regulations
require otherwise.
