Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Recovery:
Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material. Rinse with water. Recover waste water for processing later.

Elimination:
Destroy product by oxidation with dilute solutions of : Hydrogen peroxide or sodium hypochlorite
or Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Technical measures/Precautions:
Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Liquid. Sensitizing. Highly flammable With vapours explosive in air. Dangerous for the environment. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide water supplies near the point of use. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby. Well ventilate empty vats and tanks before entering.

Safe handling advice:
Keep well away from naked flames. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Use product only in closed system. Do not use air for transfers. Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure. Only use safety equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.
Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store away from heat and ignition sources. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide impermeable floor. Provide electrical earthing of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres.
