First-aid measures

General advice:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Risk of ignition. Remove soiled/dirty clothing, brush well and wash carefully.

Dust inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of persistent problems : Consult a physician.
Skin contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with soap and water.
Eye contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult an ophthalmologist.
Ingestion: In case of problems : Consult a doctor.

Protection of first-aiders: Dusts : In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: heating may cause fire.

Through thermal decomposition, formation of very reactive free radicals.
Thermal decomposition giving flammable and toxic products : Hydrocarbons, Propanone, Tertiobutanol, Carbon oxides (by combustion)

Advice for firefighters:Specific methods:
Fight fire from a distance (more than 15 m). Cool containers / tanks with water spray. In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Evacuate non-essential staff and those not equipped with individual protection apparatus. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not
smoke. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of dust. Use personal protective equipment. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear
suitable respiratory equipment.

Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Methods for cleaning up: After cleaning, flush away traces with water. Recover waste water for processing later.
Recovery:
Never return spills in original containers for re-use. Collect the product by mixing it with an inert material : vermiculite, perlite. Shovel into
suitable container for disposal. Do not confine. Keep contents moist. No sparking tools should be used.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Organic peroxides. Solid.
Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby (for
emergency intervention). Provide water supplies near the point of use. Provide fire-blanket nearby. Provide electrical earthing of equipment.


Safe handling advice:
Strictly limit the quantities of product in the work area to those which are absolutely necessary for the work in hand. Great cleanliness in work
areas is a necessary and important factor for safety. Handle and open container with care. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not
smoke. Protect from contamination. Never return any product to the container from which it was originally removed (risk of decomposition).
Never mix peroxides directly with accelerators (risk of explosion). Add each component separately to the resin. In case of insufficient
ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid breathing dust. When using do not eat, drink
or smoke. Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store in well insulated area (peroxide area) away from other substances. Storage buildings must be built and equipped so as not to exceed
the maximum proscribed temperature limit. Use non-combustible construction materials. Keep tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated
place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Do not smoke. Store in original container. Use only very clean containers and equipment
free from traces of impurities. Never return unused material to storage receptacle. Do not reuse empty packaging to store other products.
Provide earthing and safe electrical equipment. Provide impermeable floor.

Storage period: < 12 Months, Storage temperature: < 30 °C (to maintain the technical properties of the product).

Incompatible products:
Strong oxidizing agents, Reducing agents, Strong acids, strong bases, Amines, Sulphur compounds, transition metal salts,
rust, Ash, dusts (risk of self-accelerating exothermic decomposition)

Packaging material:
Recommended: High density polyethylene (HDPE), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Stainless steel
To be avoided: Ordinary metals (ordinary steel), copper, rubber (natural or synthetic)
