First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Do not induce vomiting. Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see section 2 of MSDS) and/or in section 11 of MSDS. Further symptoms are possible

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

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

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrous gases
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:
Cool endangered containers with water-spray. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective measures see, section "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection". Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.

Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder).
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Pump off product.
Wear suitable protective equipment. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly with water and detergents, observing environmental regulations. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section "Exposure Controls/Personal Protection" and "Disposal Considerations".

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Wear suitable protective clothing and eye/face protection.

Protection against fire and explosion:
The product is combustible. Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances. Segregate from oxidants.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame.

Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Specific end use(s)
See exposure scenario(s) in the attachment to the safety data sheet.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.
Body protection:
chemical-protection suit (f.e. according to EN 14605)
Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Do not breathe vapour/spray. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Eye wash fountains and safety showers must be easily accessible. Under no circumstances should the product come into contact with the skin of pregnant women or be inhaled by them. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Store work clothing separately. No eating, drinking, smoking or tobacco use at the place of work. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.

Environmental exposure controls
For information regarding environmental exposure controls, see Section "Accidental Release Measures".
