First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing.

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 and then drink plenty of water.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:

carbon dioxide, dry powder, water spray, foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides

The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Under certain conditions in case of fire other hazardous combustion products may be generated.

Advice for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment:

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

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

Avoid inhalation. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Environmental precautions

Do not empty into drains.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For large amounts: Pump off product.

For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder, kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect from direct sunlight.

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

Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.

Storage stability:

Storage temperature: <= 25 °C

Storage duration: <= 24 Months

The product is stabilized, the shelf life should be noted.

From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

additives:

potassium hydroxide  (CAS Number: 1310-58-3)

Content: 0.01 %

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters

764-99-8: 1,1'-(oxybis(ethyleneoxy))diethylene

      

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Breathing protection if gases/vapours are formed.

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

fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 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:

Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

General safety and hygiene measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

Strong exothermic reaction with acids.

Formation of flammable gases:       Remarks:       Currently, no data available

Chemical stability

The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Possibility of hazardous reactions

Evolution of heat under influence of acids. Polymerization occurs with acids. The product can polymerize if the shelf life or storage temperature are greatly exceeded. Heat develops during polymerization.

Conditions to avoid

Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid direct sunlight. Avoid heat. Avoid humidity.

Incompatible materials

Substances to avoid:

acids

Hazardous decomposition products

Possible decomposition products:

acetaldehyde

The substances/groups of substances mentioned may be released upon the reaction with water.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods

Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.

A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to dependence on the usage.

The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.

Contaminated packaging:

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
