First-aid measures


If oil mist has been inhaled, obtain medical attention (risk of chemical pneumonitis).

Skin Contact:

Wash the skin with plenty of water and soap. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes and wash/clean before reuse. If skin irritation persists, consult a physician.

Eye Contact:

Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids. Continue irrigation for several minutes while moving eyes to extreme positions. Consult a physician.


DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Obtain medical assistance immediately (risk of aspiration into the lungs especially if nausea or irritation occurs). If vomiting occurs, help to keep the victim's head down so that aspiration to the lungs will not occur.

Fire-fighting measures


Non-flammable material.

Extinguishing Media:

Carbon dioxide, dry chemical or foam. Do not use water for fire extinction.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media:

Do not use water jet.

Fire Fighting Protective Equipment:

Use full protective clothing and a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Fire Fighting Methods:

Cool product containers and tanks near the fire with water spray from a sufficiently safe distance.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:

None known. Thermal decomposition and burning may produce irritating or toxic fumes.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Evacuate people upwind from the spill area. Remove all ignition sources. Stop the leak if it can be done safely. Use appropriate personal protection equipment.

Environmental Exposure Controls:

Prevent entry into sewers, soil and waterways. If the product contaminates soil, watercourses or drainage systems, inform the local authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Immediately start clean-up of the liquid and contaminated soil. Pay attention to the fire and health hazards caused by the product. Small volumes can be absorbed with inert materials (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, commercial absorbent) and collect in suitable labeled containers to be disposed of in accordance with local regulations. Large volumes should be pumped into containers. Ensure adequate ventilation.

Handling and storage


Keep away from sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures (e.g. earthing) against static discharges.

Avoid skin contact and inhalation of oil mist. Wear protective equipment when needed (see ES&RC in IUCLID section 13). Thoroughly clean contaminated skin and change dirty clothing and equipment. During tank operations follow special instructions (risk of oxygen displacement and hydrocarbons).


Store in tightly sealed, appropriately labeled containers which are impermeable to the product. Store in containers and areas suitable for the storage of combustible liquids. Take precautionary measures to prevent product spills into sewers, soil or water courses.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures (futher information see ES&RC in CSR sections 9 and 10)

-Technical conditions and measures:

-Containment: enclosure and automatic processes. No other containment required.

-Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) in process steps where exposure  via inhalation occurs.

-General ventilation: Regarding exposure via inhalation route and hazard from the substance Good general ventilation (3 – 5 air changes per hour) is sufficient to keep the exposure via inhalation at acceptable level.

2.Organisational measures:

-Environmental, health and safety guidelines or written instructions on the standard operating procedure (SOP) are utilized

-Occupational health and safety management system: advanced

-Environment, health and safety (EHS) responsibilities are defined and assigned in writing

-Emergency action plans (Rescue training for accidental emissions) are created

-Personnel are trained in environment, health and safety issues, i.e. in safe handling of chemicals and good housekeeping

-Good hygiene measures practiced

- Comprehensive PPE program is implemented including selection, fit testing, training in use, maintenance and recording, as appropriate

-Exposure should be controlled primarily by avoidance of contact with the substance, for instance by limiting duration of activity, minimization of manual phases and by minimization of staff exposed

3.Conditions and measures related to personal protection, hygiene and health evaluation:

-Inhalation: Regarding use of the substance in the presented conditions of use, respiratory protection is used during tasks and process where the exposure via inhalation occurs.

-Eye: Exposure should be controlled primarily by using suitable eye protection (goggles or safety glasses with side shields).

-Skin: Dermal exposure is controlled and personal protection is used during tasks and process where contamination of skin may occur (protective clothing, shoes, gloves).

-PPE should be worn during the identified tasks when there is potential for exposure.

-All personal protection devices shall fulfill relevant standards.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Chemically stable under normal storage conditions.

Hazardous Decomposition Product(s): None known. Thermal decomposition and burning may produce irritating or toxic fumes.

Incompatible materials: None known.

Disposal considerations

Waste should only be disposed of via a licensed waste contractor. The European Waste Catalogue (EWC) and European Waste List (EWL) is a harmonized list of wastes. Waste materials should be classified prior to final disposal with EWC-codes. Wastes and empty containers should be treated based on their classification and properties referring to local and national waste management regulations. Waste management options: Dispose of as hazardous waste via hazardous waste incineration.

All waste containing residues of the substance should be disposed of as hazardous waste to authorized hazardous waste incineration plants, operated according to Directive 2008/98/EC on waste, Directive 2000/76/EC on the incineration of waste and Best Available Techniques for Waste Incineration as described in the respective BREF of August 2006. Based on the waste type and the fulfillment of the acceptance criteria of the Council Directive 1999/31/EC additional waste management methods such as landfill disposal might be used.

The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Dispose of surplus and non-recyclable products via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Disposal of this product, solutions and any by-products should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste legislation and any local waste management regulations.

Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities. All wastes containing residues of the substance or its hazardous degradation products shall be classified as hazardous waste. Proposal of waste codes are presented in CSR at IUCLID section 13.

Contaminated packaging: Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and disposed of as hazardous waste to incineration plants in accordance with Directive 2000/76/EC. Clean packaging material should be subjected to waste management schemes (recovery, recycling, re-use) according to local waste management regulations.

The substance and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues. Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.
