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.
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: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove
contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to rinse for at least 10
minutes. Get medical attention. 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.

Handling and storage

Manufacture and use of this chemical intermediate takes place under strictly controlled conditions, as described in Art. 17/18 REACH. The substance is rigorously contained during manufacturing and use and appropriate risk management measures including PPE (i.g. during charging or sampling) are applied. Occupational exposure is reduced to a minimum and well controlled by measurements. A management system covering all general aspects of a chemical production is in place, especially cleaning and maintenance of plants and equipment. An authorisation scheme based on instructions covering the whole process ensures that only trained and authorised staff handles the substance.

Precautions for safe handling:
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
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
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. The
product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in
Article 17(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 (REACH
Regulation) and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the
industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.
Conditions of safe storage, including any incompatibilities: 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 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.
Remarks: Avoid the formation of dust, if necessary siphoning the product off
locally. Vent waste air only via suitable separators or scrubbers.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Exposure limit values: Not available.
Recommended monitoring procedures: If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal,
workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to
determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control
measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective
equipment. Reference should be made to monitoring standards,
such as the following: European Standard EN 689 (Workplace
atmospheres - Guidance for the assessment of exposure by
inhalation to chemical agents for comparison with limit values and
measurement strategy) European Standard EN 14042 (Workplace
atmospheres - Guide for the application and use of procedures for
the assessment of exposure to chemical and biological agents)
European Standard EN 482 (Workplace atmospheres - General
requirements for the performance of procedures for the
measurement of chemical agents) Reference to national guidance
documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances will also be required.
