Take persons to a safe place. Observe self-protection for first aid.
Keep the patient calm. If unconscious place in stable sideways position. Protect against loss of body heat. In cases of sickness
seek medical advice (show label or SDS if possible).
After contact with the skin
Remove contaminated or soaked clothing. Immediately rinse with plenty of soap and water. In the event of a visible skin change
or other complaints, seek medical advice (show label or SDS where possible).
After contact with the eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water for 10-15 minutes. Seek medical advice in case of continuous irritation.
If conscious, give several small portions of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting. Seek medical advice immediately and clearly
Advice for the physician
In case of contact with water material splits off (also in gastrointestinal tract) methanol in larger amounts; therefore consider
poisoning on methanol and also observe known period of latency of several days!
Suitable extinguishing media
water mist , extinguishing powder , alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , sand .
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
water spray , water jet .
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases
Special protective equipment for fire fighting
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air.
Wear personal protection equipment (see section Exposure controls and personal protection equipment). Keep unprotected persons away. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Avoid
inhaling mists and vapours. If material is released indicate risk of slipping.
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Contain any fluid that runs out using suitable material
(e.g. earth). Retain contaminated water/extinguishing water. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers.
Methods for cleaning up
Do not flush away with water. For small amounts: Absorb with a liquid binding material such as diatomaceous earth and dispose
of according to local/state/federal regulations. Contain larger amounts and pump up into suitable containers. Clean any slippery
coating that remains using a detergent / soap solution or another biodegradable cleaner. Exhaust vapours.
Eliminate all sources of ignition.
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance with section 10.2. Spilled substance
increases risk of slipping.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Product can separate methanol. Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process
vessels, including partial, empty and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Keep away from sources of
ignition and do not smoke. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.
Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Make sure there is no possibility of entering the ground.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
Further information for storage:
Protect against moisture. Store in original container only. Keep container tightly closed and store in a cool, well ventilated place.
Exposure limited and controlled
Exposure in the work place limited and controlled
General protection and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. Do not inhale gases/vapours/aerosols. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling.
Personal protection equipment
In case of long or strong exposure: gas mask filter ABEK .
Protective gloves made of butyl rubber . Gloves suitable for up to 60 minutes' use.
tight fitting protective goggles .
protective clothing .
Exposure to the environment limited and controlled
Prevent material from entering surface waters and soil.
If stored and handled in accordance with standard industrial practices no hazardous reactions are known.
Conditions to avoid: moisture
Materials to avoid: Reacts with: water , basic substances and acids . Reaction causes the formation of: methanol .
Hazardous decomposition products: methanol .
Dispose of according to regulations by incineration in a special waste incinerator. Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Completely discharge containers (no tear drops, no powder rest, scraped carefully). Containers may be recycled or re-used.
Observe local/state/federal regulations.
