First-aid measures

Inhalation
Move to fresh air. Call a physician if symptoms develop or persist.

Skin contact
Wash off with soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops and persists.

Eye contact
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if
present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Get medical attention immediately.

Ingestion
Rinse mouth. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed
Severe eye irritation. Symptoms may include stinging, tearing, redness, swelling, and blurred
vision. Permanent eye damage including blindness could result.

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Keep victim under observation.
Symptoms may be delayed.

General information
Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved, and take precautions to
protect themselves.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
Water fog. Foam. Dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide (CO2).

Unsuitable extinguishing media
Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Specific hazards arising from the chemical
During fire, gases hazardous to health may be formed.

Special protective equipment and precautions for firefighters
Self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing must be worn in case of fire.

Fire fighting equipment/instructions
Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk.

Specific methods
Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials.

General fire hazards No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Keep unnecessary personnel away. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Wear
appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Do not touch damaged containers
or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. For personal
protection, see section 8 of the SDS.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Large Spills: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is
possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth
and place into containers. Prevent product from entering drains. Following product recovery, flush
area with water.

Small Spills: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to
remove residual contamination.

Never return spills to original containers for re-use. For waste disposal, see section 13 of the SDS.

Environmental precautions
Avoid release to the environment. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Avoid
discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Do not get this material in contact with eyes. Avoid prolonged exposure. Provide adequate
ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Avoid release to the environment.
Observe good industrial hygiene practices.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in original tightly closed container. Store away from incompatible materials (see Section 10
of the SDS).

Hydrotreated Heavy
Naphthenic (CAS
64742-52-5)
STEL 10 mg/m3 Mist.
TWA 5 mg/m3 Mist.

Biological limit values
No biological exposure limits noted for the ingredient(s).

Appropriate engineering controls
Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates
should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation,
or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If
exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level. Provide
eyewash station.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment
Eye/face protection
Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles) and a face shield.
Skin protection
Hand protection Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves. Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove
supplier.
Other
Wear suitable protective clothing.
Respiratory protection
In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Thermal hazards
Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.
General hygiene considerations
Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material
and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective
equipment to remove contaminants.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
The product is stable and non-reactive under normal conditions of use, storage and transport.

Chemical stability
Material is stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.

Conditions to avoid
Contact with incompatible materials.

Incompatible materials
Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products
No hazardous decomposition products are known.

Disposal considerations

Disposal instructions
Collect and reclaim or dispose in sealed containers at licensed waste disposal site. Do not allow
this material to drain into sewers/water supplies. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches
with chemical or used container. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with
local/regional/national/international regulations.

Local disposal regulations
Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.

Hazardous waste code
The waste code should be assigned in discussion between the user, the producer and the waste
disposal company.

Waste from residues / unused products
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations. Empty containers or liners may retain some
product residues. This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe manner (see:
Disposal instructions).

Contaminated packaging
Since emptied containers may retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is
emptied. Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or
disposal.
