First-aid measures

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-tomouth

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. In case

of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be

delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical

surveillance for 48 hours.

Ingestion:

Wash out mouth with water. 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:

Wash contaminated skin with soap and water. Remove

contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if

symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes

thoroughly before reuse.

Eye contact:

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. Get medical attention if

irritation occurs.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable:

In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2.

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. May cause long-term

adverse effects in the aquatic environment. Fire water

contaminated with this material must be contained and prevented

from being discharged to any waterway, sewer or drain.

Hazardous combustion

products:

Decomposition products may include the following materials:

carbon oxides

nitrogen oxides

sulfur oxides

Special protective

equipment for fire-fighters:

Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained

breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece

operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without

suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel

from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid

breathing dust. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate

personal protective equipment (see section 8).

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). May cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic

environment.

Large spill:

Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water

courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up

material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Avoid

creating dusty conditions and prevent wind dispersal. Dispose of via

a licensed waste disposal contractor. Note: see section 1 for

emergency contact information and section 13 for waste disposal.

Small spill:

Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and

place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a

licensed waste disposal contractor.

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

breathe dust. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and

clothing. 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.

Storage:

Do not store above the following temperature: 25°C (77°F). 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.

Packaging materials:

Use original container.

Recommended Remarks:

Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges.

Exposure controls / personal protection

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.

Recommended: Dust-protection mask

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. After

contamination with product change the gloves immediately and

dispose of them according to relevant national and local regulations

<1 hours (breakthrough time): Polyvinyl chloride - PVC, Nitrile

rubber - NBR, Polychloroprene - CR

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, gases or dusts. If operating

conditions cause high dust concentrations to be produced, use dust

goggles.

Recommended: safety glasses with side-shields

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.

Recommended: Wear protective clothing.

Hygiene measures:

Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical

products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the
