First-aid measures

GENERAL INFORMATION
Symptoms of poisoning may even occur after several hours; therefore medical observation for at least 48 hours after the accident.
Condition may deteriorate with alcohol consumption.
Remove breathing equipment only after contaminated clothing have been completely removed.

AFTER INHALATION
Do not use mouth to mouth or mouth to nose resuscitation.
Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.

AFTER SKIN CONTACT
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.

AFTER EYE CONTACT
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses if easy to do. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention.

AFTER SWALLOWING
Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

INFORMATION FOR DOCTOR
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
- Skin Contact: May cause an allergic skin reaction. May be absorbed through the skin and produce effects similar to those caused by inhalation and/or ingestion.
- Ingestion: May cause alcohol intolerance (Antabuse Effect). May cause headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, or gastrointestinal irritation.
- Inhalation: Exposure to dust particles generated from this material may cause irritation of the respiratory tract. Inhalation may cause alcohol intolerance

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
- No further relevant information available.

Fire-fighting measures

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT AND EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
Use respiratory protective device against the effects of fumes/dust/aerosol.
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilled material. Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS
Do not allow product to reach sewage system or any water course.

METHODS AND MATERIAL FOR CONTAINMENT AND CLEANING UP
- Large spill: Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
- Small spill: Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING
Avoid breathing dust.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Persons with a history of skin sensitization problems should not be employed in any process in which this product is used.

Exposure controls / personal protection

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT DESIGN OF TECHNICAL FACILITIES
If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances.
Local exhaust ventilation is strongly recommended.

CONTROL PARAMETERS: Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:
TWA: 1 mg/m³
STEL: 3 mg/m³
OES-TWA 10.0 mg/m³ inhalable dust
OES-TWA 4.0 mg/m³ respirable dust

EXPOSURE CONTROLS: PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
General protective and hygienic measures:
Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.
Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.
