First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled: Remove the affected individual into fresh air and keep the person calm. Seek medical attention if necessary.

On skin contact: After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water and soap. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On contact with eyes: Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open. If irritation develops, seek medical attention.

On ingestion: Seek medical attention. Rinse mouth immediately with water. Induce vomiting only if the patient is conscious, seek medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms: No significant reaction of the human body to the product known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: water spray, carbon dioxide, dry powder, foam

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Burning produces harmful and toxic fumes.

Advice for fire-fighters

Special protective equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures :

Avoid dust formation. Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/aerosol.

Environmental precautions :

Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up :

For small amounts: Sweep/shovel up.

For large amounts: Sweep/shovel up.

Sweep/shovel up. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations. Avoid raising dust.

Cleaning operations should be carried out only while wearing breathing apparatus. Pack in tightly

closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling :

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Wear suitable protective clothing and eye/face

protection. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Keep container tightly closed.

Protection against fire and explosion:

Avoid dust formation. Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire

extinguishers should be kept handy. It is recommended that all conductive parts of the machinery are


Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated

place. Keep only in the original container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Components with workplace control parameters: none

Exposure controls

Personal protective equipment

- Respiratory protection: Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Breathing protection if dusts are formed.

Particle filter with high efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P3 or FFP3).

- Hand protection: Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact

(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN

374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other

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)

- Body protection: Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting

boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures

Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of dusts. Handle in accordance with

good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at

the end of the shift. Employees should shower at the end of the shift. When using do not eat or drink.

Stability and reactivity

- Reactivity : No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

- Chemical stability: The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

- Possibility of hazardous reactions : No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

-Conditions to avoid: Avoid dust formation. Avoid electro-static charge.

- Incompatible materials: Substances to avoid: strong oxidizing agents, strong reducing agents, strong acids, strong bases

- Hazardous decomposition products : carbon oxides

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods : Observe national and local legal requirements.
