First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in
recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid personnel
should pay attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:
Immediately inhale corticosteroid dose aerosol. Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical
attention.
On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water, seek medical attention.
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:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see
section 2) and/or in section 11., Further symptoms are possible
Hazards: Symptoms can appear later.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions). Medical monitoring for at least
24 hours.
Treatment: Stomach wash. Adminmister N-acetylcysteine (e.g. Fluimucil) and/or in case of cyanid
toxication administer 4-(dimethylamino)phenol (4-DMAP) and sodium thiosulfate afterwards.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, foam, water spray, carbon dioxide
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
hydrogen cyanide; hydrocyanic acid
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent
systems.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated
place. Keep under inert gas. Protect contents from the effects of light.
Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with workplace control parameters
Observe the appropriate occupational exposure limit.
107-13-1: acrylonitrile

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Self-contained breathing apparatus.
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):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
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.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of
dust).
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with the skin,
eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
Contaminated equipment or clothing should be cleaned after each use or disposed of. Store work
clothing separately.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Reacts with strong acids. Reacts with peroxides. Risk of polymerization. Polymerization coupled with
heat formation.
Conditions to avoid
Temperature: > 80 °C
Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:
acids, alkalies, peroxides


Hazardous decomposition products:
hydrogen cyanide; hydrocyanic acid

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
Contaminated packaging:
Packs that cannot be cleaned should be disposed of in the same manner as the contents.
