First-aid measures

General advice:
Immediately remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
If difficulties occur after vapour/aerosol has been inhaled, remove to fresh air and seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water, do not induce vomiting, seek medical attention.
Note to physician:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid
and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure., acid- resp. lye-proof apron,
e.g. of rubber (f.e. according to EN 14605), protection boots, f.e. of rubber (e.g. according to EN
20346), acid-proof chemical protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Stability and reactivity

Substances to avoid:
bases
Corrosion to metals: Corrosive effect on metals.
Hazardous reactions:
Reacts with water. Reacts with metals, with evolution of hydrogen.
Hazardous decomposition products:
No hazardous decomposition products known.

Disposal considerations

Must be dumped or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.
Contaminated packaging:
Uncontaminated packaging can be re-used.
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
