First-aid measures

1. Description of first aid measures:
Eye contact : Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.
Skin contact : Wash off with soap and water. Consult a physician if necessary.
Ingestion : Rinse mouth with plenty of water. Consult a physician.
Inhalation : Take person to fresh air. Consult a physician if necessary.
2. Most important symptoms and effects:
Symptoms : Prolonged exposure causes local irritation of skin and mucous membranes, especially to the eyes. Risk of serious damage to eyes.
3. Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
General advice : Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

1. Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media : Water spray., Carbon dioxide (CO2)., Dry extinguishing powder., Foam.
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Specific hazards during fire fighting: In case of fire, thermal decomposition with emission of hazardous fumes is possible
Further information : Keep away from heat.Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains.At a
fire in the surrounding area, cool down the vessels with water or if possible withdraw them from the fire.Avoid raising of dust.
3. Advice for fire-fighters:
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear suitable protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Personal precautions : Cleanup personnel must use appropriate personal protective equipment. Avoid formation of dust.
Additional advice : Keep away from heat or open flame. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge. If substance has entered a water course or sewer or contaminated soil or vegetation advise fire brigade or police. Prevent release into the drain, soil or surface water.
2. Environmental precautions:
Environmental precautions : Avoid subsoil penetration. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Methods for cleaning up : Shovel into suitable container for disposal. Collect spilled product in another vessel and carry off as chemical waste.

Handling and storage

1. Precautions for safe handling:
Advice on safe handling : Avoid dust formation.
Hygiene measures : When using do not eat or drink.Avoid contact with eyes.Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking, or using tobacco products.Avoid generating airborne dust.Avoid inhaling dust.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: The product itself does not burn.Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.Take precautionary measures against static discharges.This material, like most organic material in powder form is capable of creating a dust explosion.
2. Conditions for safe storage:
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.Prevent product from diffusing.
Advice on common storage : Store away from strong acids and strong oxidizing agents (e.g.sodium hypochlorite).
3. Specific end use:
This substance is used only by trained professionals under restricted conditions.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Control parameters:
1.1 Components with occupational exposure limits rsp. biological occupational exposure limits requiring monitoring:
1.1.1 Occupational exposure limits:
Air limit values: N,N-Dimethylacetamide CAS-No.: 127-19-5: EU ELV 05 2003 36 mg/m3 TWA, EU ELV 05 2003 72 mg/m3 STEL, EH40 WEL 2005 36 mg/m3 TWA, EH40 WEL 2005 72 mg/m3 STEL
Biological limit values: We are not aware of any national exposure limit.
1.1.2 Additional exposure limits under the conditions of use:
Particles not otherwise classified (inhalation fraction: dust/mist): 3 mg/m³. Particles not otherwise classified (inhalation fraction): 10 mg/m³
2. Exposure controls:
2.1. Occupational exposure controls:
2.1.1. Instructual measures to prevent exposure:
Employees should wash their hands and face before eating, drinking, or using tobacco products. Keep away from foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco.
2.1.2 Technical measures to prevent exposure:
Ensure adequate ventilation. All parts of the installation should be earthed carefully.
2.1.3. Personal measures to prevent exposure:
Respiratory protection : Use dust mask if necessary.
Hand protection : Permeation resistant gloves. Use chemical resistant gloves. In case of prolonged immersion or frequently repeated contact use gloves made of the materials: butylrubber (thickness >= 0.70 mm, breakthrough time > 480min).(EN 374). The use of protective gloves should conform tothe specifications of EC directive 89/686/EC and the resultant standard EN374, for example KCL 898 Butoject (full contact), KCL 890 Vito Ject (splash contact).Additional advice: The data are based on own tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or derived from similar substances. Because several factors may influence these properties(eg temperature), one should take into account the fact that the life of a chemical gloves in practice may be considerably shorter than indiEye protection : Safety goggles. EN 166.
Body Protection : Wear disposable overalls.
2.2. Environmental exposure controls:
Effluent regulations/discharge/treatment/contents may vary from one area to another. Please consult the local regulations regarding the disposal of this material. Do not release into drain. Collect for removal by a licensed waste contractor.
