First-aid measures

Product-Specific hazards:

Suspected of damaging fertility or the unborn child.

General advice :

Where there is potential for exposure: restrict access to authorised persons; provide specific activity training to operators to minimise exposures.

Take care to self-protect by avoiding becoming contaminated.

Use adequate respiratory protection.

Move contaminated patient(s) out of the dangerous area.

Take off all contaminated clothing and shoes.

Seek medical assistance - show the safety data sheet or label if possible.

Inhalation :

Move to fresh air.

Do not leave the victim unattended.

Keep patient warm and at rest.

Seek immediate medical attention.

If breathing is difficult, give oxygen if possible or assisted ventilation, (do not use mouth to mouth).

If unconscious, place in recovery position.

In the event of cardiac arrest (no pulse),  apply cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

Skin contact :

Take off all contaminated clothing and shoes.

Immediately flush affected area with plenty of soap and water – continue for at least 15 minutes.

If there are signs of irritation or other symptoms seek medical attention.

Eye contact :

Remove any contact lenses.

Flush eyes with water thoroughly and continuously for at least 15 minutes.

Keep eye wide open while rinsing.

Protect unharmed eye.

If there are signs of irritation or other symptoms seek medical attention.

If eye irritation, pain, swelling, lachrimation or photophobia persists, patient should be referred to a specialist health care facility.

Ingestion :

Get medical attention immediately.

Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.

Do not give milk or alcoholic beverages.

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media :

LARGE FIRE: Use water spray, water fog or foam. DO NOT use direct water jet.

SMALL FIRE: Dry powder or carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguisher, dry sand or fire fighting foam.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media :

(Do not use) Direct water jet.

Simultaneous use of foam and water on the same surface is to be avoided as water destroys the foam.

Combustion Products :

Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and unburned hydrocarbons (smoke).

Specific hazards during fire fighting :

Containers may explode under fire conditions - use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses – may cause explosion hazard in drains and may reignite on surface water.

Further information :

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters :

Wear an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus in addition to standard fire fighting gear.

Accidental release measures

Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area).

Personal precautions :

Wear personal protective equipment.

Avoid breathing vapours or mist.

Ensure adequate ventilation and absence of sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions :

Land spillage :

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Prevent spillage from entering drains, sewer, basement or confined areas.

Water spillage :

Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

If the spillage contaminates rivers, lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods for clean up :

Land spillage:

Contain spillage.

Spillages can be taken up by collection with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth,

diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and placed in container for disposal according to local / national


Water spillage:

Contain with booms or barriers, use surface acting agents to thicken spilled materials.

Remove trapped material with suction hoses.

Further accidental release measures :

Ensure all equipment is non sparking or electrically bonded.

Avoid direct contact with released material.

Stay upwind.

Keep non-involved personnel away from the area of spillage.

Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling :

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited.

Avoid all sources of ignition.

Avoid contact with heat, ignition sources and oxidizing agents.

Use only in well ventilated areas.

Containers should be opened only under exhaust ventilation hood.

Use proper bonding and/or grounding procedures.

This material is a static accumulator: Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Do not allow splash filling of bulk volumes.

Do not use compressed air for filling, discharging or handling.

Do not pressurise, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, or grind on containers.

The vapour is heavier than air, beware of accumulation in pits and confined spaces.

Cleaning, inspection and maintenance of the internal structure of storage tanks must be done

only by properly equipped and qualified personnel as defined by national, local or company regulation.

Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.

Storage :

No smoking.

Store in either mild steel or stainless steel containers or vessels.

Store in a designated cool and well-ventilated place.

Store in the original, tightly closed, container.

Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.

Keep container tightly closed and properly labelled.

Storage installations should be designed with adequate bunds so as to prevent ground and water pollution in case of leaks or spills.

Fixed storage containers, transfer containers and associated equipment should be earthed and bonded to prevent accumulation of static charge.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls: Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Protective and hygiene measures: Do not breath vapours or spray mist - Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product - When using, do not eat, drink or smoke - Take off immediately all contaminated clothing - avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.

Respiratory protection: In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment (gas filter A).

Hand protection: Solvent-resistent gloves (nitrile rubber). Requirements can vary as a function of the use. Therefore it is necessary to adhere additionally to the recommendations given by the manufacturer of protective gloves.

Eye protection: Safety goggles with side protection - Eye wash bottle with pure water.

Skin protection: Light protective clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid : To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.

Material to avoid : Strong oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products : Carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide

Additonal information : No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

Disposal considerations

Advice on disposal: Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations. Where possible recycling is preferred to disposal.

Wahste disposal number of waste from residues/unused products: 070214 WASTE FROM ORGANIC CHEMICAL PROCESSES; wastes from the MFSU of plastics, synthetic rubber and man-made fibres; wastes from additives containing dangerous substances. Classified as hazarous waste.

Contaminted packaging: Empty containers should be taken for local recycling, recovery or waste disposal. Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be take for reuse. Packaging that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of like product.
