First-aid measures

- General advice:
Protect yourself and any casualty from further exposure during decontamination. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Remove contaminated clothing.

- Following inhalation:
Remove persons affected by vapour to fresh air. Keep patient at rest and give oxygen if breathing difficult. Apply artificial respiration if necessary (do not employ mouth-to-mouth method). Appropriate mechanical means should be used (Pneupac or bag and mask). Seek medical treatment.

- Following skin contact:
Remove contaminated clothing immediately and drench affected skin with plenty of water. Then wash with soap and water. Seek medical treatment.

- Following eye contact:
Irrigate with eyewash solution or clean water, holding the eyelids apart, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first five minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Seek medical treatment.

- Following ingestion:
If swallowed, rinse mouth with water (only if the person is conscious). Do not induce vomiting. Keep patient at rest. Seek medical treatment.

- Most important symptoms and effects:
Causes burns. Toxic if swallowed.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:
Extinguish with foam, dry chemical, sand or carbon dioxide.
Water spray should be used to cool containers.

- Unsuitable extinguishing media:
None

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Combustion causes toxic fumes.
Combustion products: Carbon monoxide. Hydrogen bromide.

- Advice for fire fighter:
A self contained breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing should be worn in fire conditions. Prevent substance entering sewers. Contain effluent and prevent effluent from entering sewers and waterways.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions:
Ensure suitable personal protection (including respiratory protection) during removal of spillages.

- Protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Ensure suitable protection (including respiratory protection) during removal of spillages.


- Environmental precautions:
Avoid release to the environment. Contain effluent and prevent effluent from entering sewers and waterways.

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Evacuate area. Provided it is safe to do so, isolate the source of the leak. Sweep up carefully with non-sparking tools. Avoid generation of dust. Transfer to a container for disposal.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling:
Use only in well-ventilated areas. Avoid inhalation of vapours. Avoid direct contact with the substance. Wear suitable protective clothing.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep container tightly closed, in a cool, well ventilated place. Keep containers properly sealed when not in use.

Keep in a cool place.
Keep only in original container.

Keep away from: Strong bases and strong oxidizing agents.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures
Provide adequate ventilation when using the material and follow the principles of good occupational hygiene to control personal exposures. Provide adequate ventilation to avoid build up of powder.

2. Organisational protection measures
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after using the product. Take off contaminated clothing and wash before reuse.

3. Hand protection
Gloves: Butyl rubber / Neoprene rubber. Glove performance is governed by many variables over which we have no control, we strongly recommend that you seek specialist advice on the selection and use of protective gloves. Note: Break-through times can vary depending on thickness, use and source. Change gloves regularly.

4. Feet protection
Chemical resistant boots - safety boots, riggers or safety wellingtons

5. Body protection
Wear suitable protective clothing. Plastic gloves and boots. Chemical protection suit, boots and suitable gloves

6. Eye protection
Goggles giving complete protection to eyes. Full face shield.

7. Respiratory protection
Where engineering controls are not fitted or inadequate wear suitable respiratory protective equipment. EN140 Type A or equivalent.
