First-aid measures

On contact with eyes : No first aid should be needed.
On skin contact : No first aid should be needed.
If inhaled : Remove to fresh air.
On ingestion : No first aid should be needed.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media : Carbon dioxide, foam, dry powder or fine water spray. Water can be used to cool fire exposed containers.

Unsuitable extinguishing media : None known.

Hazards during fire fighting : Electrostatic charges may be generated during transfer of product from its container. Ensure that all equipment is electrically earthed. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Special protective equipment/procedures : A self-contained respirator and protective clothing should be worn. Keep containers cool with water spray until well after the fire is out. Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan.

Hazardous Combustion Products : none known

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions : Wear proper protective equipment.

Precautions to protect the environment : Do not empty into drains. Prevent from spreading or entering into drains, ditches or rivers by using sand, earth or other appropriate barriers.

Methods for cleaning up : Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan. Eliminate all possible sources of ignition. Very large spills should be contained by bunding, etc... procedures. Mop, wipe or soak up with absorbent material and place in a container with a lid. The spilled product produces an extremely slippery surface.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling : General ventilation is recommended. Local ventilation is recommended. Avoid eye contact.

Advice on storage : Store in a flameproof, well ventilated area. Electrostatic charges may be generated during transfer of product from its container. Ensure that all equipment is electrically earthed. Keep container tightly closed. Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Specific uses : Refer to technical data sheet available on request.

Unsuitable packaging materials : None known.
