First-aid measures

Eye contact
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water,
occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids.
Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes.
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

Inhalation
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel.
It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If unconscious,
place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway.
Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire,
symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours.

Skin contact
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician.
Wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear gloves.
Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated promptly
by a physician. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Ingestion
Get medical attention immediately. Call a poison center or physician. Wash out mouth with water.
Remove dentures if any. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing.
If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink.
Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel.
If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs.
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.
Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Protection of first-aiders
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask
or self-contained breathing apparatus. It may be dangerous to the person providing
aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly
with water before removing it, or wear gloves.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media Do not use water jet.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazards from the substance or mixture
Flammable liquid and vapour. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur
and the container may burst, with the risk of a subsequent explosion.
The vapour/gas is heavier than air and will spread along the ground.
Vapours may accumulate in low or confined areas or travel a considerable distance to a source of
ignition and flash back. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard.

Hazardous combustion products
Decomposition products may include the following materials:
carbon dioxide
carbon monoxide
nitrogen oxides
Ammonia

Advice for firefighters
Special precautions for fire-fighters
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if
there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable
training. Move containers from fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water
spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained
breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure
mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves)
conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for
chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel
No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.
Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from
entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Shut off all ignition sources.
No flares, smoking or flames in hazard area. Do not breathe vapour or mist.
Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders
If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any
information in Section 8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the
information in "For non-emergency personnel".

Environmental precautions
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains
and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental
pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Small spill
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop
up if water-soluble. Alternatively, or if water-insoluble, absorb with an inert dry
material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use spark-proof tools
and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Large spill
Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Approach the release
from upwind. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined
areas. Wash spillages into an effluent treatment plant or proceed as follows.
Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand,
earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal
according to local regulations (see section 13). Use spark-proof tools and explosionproof
equipment. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.
Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.
Note: see section 1 for emergency contact information and section 13 for waste
disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Protective measures
Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section 8). Do not get in
eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapour or mist. Do not ingest. Use only
with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is
inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined spaces unless adequately
ventilated. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a
compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from
heat, sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosion-proof electrical
(ventilating, lighting and material handling) equipment. Use only non-sparking tools.
Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges. Keep away from
acids. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse
container.

Advice on general occupational hygiene
Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is
handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before
eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective
equipment before entering eating areas. See also Section 8 for additional
information on hygiene measures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated and approved
area. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and wellventilated
area, away from incompatible materials (see section 10) and food and
drink. Store locked up. Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from acids.
Separate from oxidizing materials. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until
ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and
kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use
appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.
