Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Solid: Sweep up spilt material and place in waste containers

for disposal.

Solutions: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1).

For spills involving the 2-propanol solution of the polymer

avoid sources of ignition. Take up spill using an inorganic

absorbent (eg. dry sand, vermiculite or ground limestone).

Transfer to labelled metal containers and dispose of by

incineration in accordance with local regulations. Wash

spill site with water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method at a suitable facility. Waste gas

treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen and silicon should be

fitted.  (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Discharge into water is a recommended disposal method.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from tape in the public domain is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.
