Administrative data

First-aid measures

General advice : Have the product container, label or Material Safety Data Sheet with you
when calling the Syngenta emergency number, a poison control center or
physician, or going for treatment.

Inhalation : Move the victim to fresh air.
If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration.
Keep patient warm and at rest.
Call a physician or poison control centre immediately.

Skin contact : Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Wash off immediately with plenty of water.
If skin irritation persists, call a physician.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

Eye contact : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least
15 minutes.
Remove contact lenses.
Immediate medical attention is required.

Ingestion : If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show this container or
Do NOT induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Extinguishing media - small fires
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Extinguishing media - large fires
Alcohol-resistant foam or Water spray

Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
As the product contains combustible organic components, fire will produce
dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion.
Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.

Advice for firefighters
Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Refer to protective measures listed under "Handling and Storage" and "Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection".
Avoid dust formation.

Environmental precautions
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Contain spillage, pick up with an electrically protected vacuum cleaner or
by wet-brushing and transfer to a container for disposal according to local
Do not create a powder cloud by using a brush or compressed air.
Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
This material is capable of forming flammable dust clouds in air, which, if
ignited, can produce a dust cloud explosion. Flames, hot surfaces, mechanical
sparks and electrostatic discharges can serve as ignition sources
for this material. Electrical equipment should be compatible with the
flammability characteristics of this material. The flammability characteristics
will be made worse if the material contains traces of flammable
solvents or is handled in the presence of flammable solvents.
In general personnel handling this material and all conducting equipment
should be electrically earthed or grounded. Consideration should be given
to avoiding the use of insulating plastics. Bulk bags (FIBC) used to contain
this material should be Type C or Type D. Type C bags must be electrically
grounded before powder is charged to or discharged from the bag.
Bag filters used to scavenge dust from material handling processes
should be conductive and electrically grounded during use. If metal or
fibre drums are used to contain this product, make certain that the metal
parts are bonded to the filling equipment and grounded.
This material can become readily charged in most operations.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Keep out of the reach of children.
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components: butafenacil
Exposure limit(s): 10 mg/m3
Type of exposure limit: 8 h TWA
Source: Syngenta

The following recommendations for exposure controls/personal protection are intended for the manufacture,
formulation and packaging of the product.

Exposure controls

Engineering measures :
Containment and/or segregation is the most reliable technical protection
measure if exposure cannot be eliminated.
The extent of these protection measures depends on the actual risks in
If airborne dust is generated, use local exhaust ventilation controls.
Assess exposure and use any additional measures to keep airborne
levels below any relevant exposure limit.
Where necessary, seek additional occupational hygiene advice.

Protective measures :
The use of technical measures should always have priority over the use of
personal protective equipment.
When selecting personal protective equipment, seek appropriate professional
Personal protective equipment should be certified to appropriate standards.

Respiratory protection : No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required.
A particulate filter respirator may be necessary until effective technical
measures are installed.

Hand protection : Chemical resistant gloves are not usually required.
Select gloves based on the physical job requirements.

Eye protection : Eye protection is not usually required.
Follow any site specific eye protection policies.

Skin and body protection : No special protective equipment required.
Select skin and body protection based on the physical job requirements.
