First-aid measures

General information:

Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

Take affected persons out into the fresh air.

Seek immediate medical advice.

- After inhalation:

In case of unconsciousness place patient stably in side position for transportation.

Provide oxygen treatment if affected person has difficulty breathing.

If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth to mouth.

- After skin contact: After contact with skin, wash immediately almost 15 minutes with plenty of water.

- After eye contact: Rinse opened eye for almost 15 minutes under running water.

- After swallowing:

Rinse mouth out with water.

Give 500 ml water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.

Emergency equipment: Provide wash facilities for eyes and skin near work area.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing agents:

Carbon dioxide, dry chemicals, foam, water spray (mist).

Use fire extinguishing methods suitable to surrounding conditions.

High temperatures may liberate toxic or corrosive gases. Do not breathe smoke or vapours.

Protective equipment:

Wear self-contained respiratory protective device.

Wear fully protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear protective equipment. Keep unprotected persons away.

Environmental precautions:

Prevent from spreading (e.g. by damming-in or oil barriers).

Do not allow to enter sewers/ surface or ground water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Take up small spills with dry chemical absorbent.

Large spills may be taken up with pump or vacuum and finished off with neutralization agent.

May require excavation of contaminated soil. Shovel up residues and place in a labelled sealable container for

subsequent safe disposal. Put leaking container into a labelled drum or overdrum.

Residue may be washed down with water.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety procedures.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

- Information about fire - and explosion protection:

Keep ignition sources away - Do not smoke.

Protect against electrostatic charges.

Use explosion-proof apparatus / fittings and spark-proof tools.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

- Storage:

- Requirements to be met by storerooms and receptacles:

Store in dry, cool, well-ventilated area.

Mechanical ventilation is recommended.

- Further information about storage conditions:

Keep container tightly sealed.

Open receptacle only under localised extractor facilities.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

- Personal protective equipment:

- General protective and hygienic measures:

The usual precautionary measures are to be adhered to when handling chemicals.

Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and feed.

Immediately remove all soiled and contaminated clothing

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of work.

Avoid contact with the eyes and skin.

- Respiratory protection:

In case of brief exposure or low pollution use respiratory filter device. In case of intensive or longer exposure use self-contained respiratory protective device.

- Protection of hands:

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the preparation.

Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the preparation/the chemical mixture.

Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the degradation

- Material of gloves

The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

- Penetration time of glove material

The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and has to be observed.

- Eye protection: Tightly sealed goggles

- Body protection: Use protective suit
