First-aid measures

General advice No hazards which require special first aid measures.
- Inhalation: Move to fresh air in case of accidental inhalation of vapours. Consult a physician after significant exposure.
- Skin contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
- Eye contact: Immediately flush eye(s) with plenty of water.
- Ingestion: Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media Water spray, Dry powder, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
- Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons high volume water jet
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Environmental precautions Avoid subsoil penetration. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for cleaning up Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Use mechanical handling equipment. The material taken up must be disposed of in accordance with regulations. If they get dirty, wash clothes. If equipment gets dirty, clean using a surfactant solution. Do not allow washing water to get into the environment. Dispose of it instead via the drains.
Additional advice Danger of slipping after spill or leakage. Spilling onto the container's outside will make container slippery.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Respiratory protection: No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or breathing apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance with EN 141.
Hand protection: The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other., Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time., Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

gloves suitable for permanent contact:
Material: Fluorkautschuk
Break through time: >= 480 min
Material thickness: 0.4 mm

Eye protection Safety glasses
Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Protective measures: Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions: Stable under normal conditions.

Disposal considerations

Product: Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.
