First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing. If difficulties occur: Obtain medical attention. Show container, label
and/or safety data sheet to physician.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry extinguishing media, carbon dioxide
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Collect contaminated extinguishing
water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and
contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Use personal protective clothing. Ensure adequate
ventilation.
Environmental precautions:
Do not empty into drains.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance
with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Storage
Suitable materials for containers: Stove-lacquer RDL 50, High density polyethylene (HDPE), Low
density polyethylene (LDPE), tin (tinplate), glass
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.
Protect contents from the effects of light. Protect against heat.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
none
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
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
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
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:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures:
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended. No
eating, drinking, smoking or tobacco use at the place of work. Store work clothing separately.
