First-aid measures

If irritation or other symptoms (as noted above) occur or persist from any route of exposure, remove the affected individual from the area: see a physician/get medical attention.

Eye contact

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of clean water for an extended time, not less than fifteen (15) minutes. Flush longer if there is any indication of residual chemical in the eye. Ensure adequate flushing of the eyes by separating the eyelids with fingers and roll eyes in a circular motion.

Skin contact

Immediately remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash the affected area with plenty of soap and water until no evidence of the chemical remains (at least 15-20 minutes). Launder clothing before reuse. Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

Inhalation

If affected, remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration.

Ingestion

Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse out the mouth with water. Get medical attention immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

May cause on skin pain, burning sensation, itching, redness, swelling, or rash and allergic skin reaction with itching, rash, or swelling. May cause in eyes pain, tearing, swelling, redness, or temporary visual impairment.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

No further information is available.

Fire-fighting measures

Combustible liquid. Eliminate all ignition sources. Ventilate the area. If spill is large, be prepared to isolate the hazard area. Deny access to the spill area to persons who are not involved in the cleanup and/or who have not been properly trained in spill management of hazardous/flammable liquids. Vapors may explode if ignited in an enclosed area. Run off to sewer may cause a fire or explosion hazard.

Extinguishing media:

Suitable extinguishing media: Use dry chemical, "alcohol" foam, carbon dioxide or water spray.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: jet of water

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Hazardous combustion products:

Fire will produce dense black smoke containing hazardous combustion products.

May produce toxic carbon oxides (COx).

Advice for fire-fighters

Use water/water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Water spray may be used to flush spills away from exposures and to dilute spills to non-combustible mixtures. Do not flush combustible liquids into sewer as a fire or vapor explosion hazard may result. Never direct a hose stream directly onto a burning flammable/combustible liquid. Solid or straight hose stream will cause fire to spread if directed onto a burning spill or into an open container of burning liquid. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) equipped with a full facepiece and operated in a pressure-demand mode (or other positive pressure mode) and approved protective clothing. Personnel without suitable respiratory protection must leave the area to prevent significant exposure to hazardous gases from combustion, burning or decomposition. In an enclosed or poorly ventilated area, wear SCBA during cleanup immediately after a fire as well as during the attack phase of firefighting operations.

Additional information:

Protect product from flames of any kind; maintain proper clearance when using heat devices, etc. Irritating or toxic substances may be emitted upon burning. Product may burn if an ignition source is present. Closed container may rupture (due to build up in pressure) when exposed to extreme heat.  

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel

Keep in a well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition. Comply with safety directives (see sections 7 and 8). Do not inhale vapours.

For emergency responders

Wear as appropriate: full protective flame proof clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Environmental precautions:

Do not let product enter drains. Notify the respective authorities in accordance with local law in the case of contamination of rivers, lakes or waste water streams.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

For containment:

Contain by diking with sand, earth or other non-combustible material. Prevent flow into public sewer (explosion hazard), streams or other water systems. If spilled in an enclosed area, ventilate.

For cleaning up:

Wear proper personal protective clothing and equipment. Do not flush liquid into public sewer, water systems or surface waters. Eliminate ignition sources. Ventilate areas of spill. Absorb spill with an inert material. Place into labeled, closed container; store in safe location to await disposal. Change contaminated clothing and launder before reuse.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

As with any chemical product, use good laboratory/workplace procedures. Do not cut, puncture, or weld on or near the container. Wash thoroughly after handling this product. Always wash up before eating, smoking or using the facilities. Use under well-ventilated conditions. Avoid eye and skin contact. Avoid inhalation of aerosol, mist, spray, fume or vapor. Avoid drinking, tasting, swallowing or ingesting this product. Bond and ground all containers when transferring chemical. Vapors may travel to distant ignition sources. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Discard shoes contaminated with this product. Provide eyewash fountains and safety showers in the work area. Eliminate ignition sources (e.g., sparks, static buildup, excessive heat, etc.). Use spark-proof tools and equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Store in combustible storage area and away from heat and open flame. Keep away from heat, sparks and open flames. Store under wellventilated conditions. Keep container upright, when not in use, to prevent leakage. Avoid storing containers in direct sunlight as vapors may accumulate in the head space creating pressure. Store this material away from incompatible substances. Keep container closed when not in use. Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers. Emptied container may contain residual vapors or liquid which may ignite or explode. Do not reuse empty container without commercial cleaning or reconditioning. Bond and ground all containers when transferring chemical.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:

Always provide effective general and, when necessary, local exhaust ventilation to draw spray, aerosol, fume, mist and vapor away from workers to prevent routine inhalation. Ventilation must be adequate to maintain the ambient workplace atmosphere below the exposure limit(s) outlined in the SDS. Eliminate ignition sources (e.g., sparks, static buildup, excessive heat, etc.).

Personal protective equipment:

Eye / Face protection:

Safety glasses or goggles required.

Skin protection:

Wear chemical resistant (impervious) gloves. Wear chemical resistant protective clothing. Europe: Using the information provided in the Hazards Identification Section, seek the advice of the glove supplier as to the most suitable glove material. Avoid skin contact when mixing or handling the material by wearing impervious gloves and protective clothing appropriate to the risk of exposure. Use chemical resistant gloves. The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of the EC directive 89/686/EEC and the resultant standard EN 374. This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the Safety Data Sheet and supplied by us as well as to the purpose specified by us. In case of prolonged immersion or frequently repeated contact: Consult your glove manufacturer for advice on what glove material to use and to avoid.
