First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Pay attention to self-protection.

Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance. Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.

Do not leave victims unattended.

If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.


Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated.

After inhalation move subject to fresh air.

With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.

If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:

Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water.

Continue decontamination with polyethylene glycol 400 after initial rinsing with water and then wash with water and soap.

If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:

With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.

Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.


Rinse mouth.

Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.

Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


Irritation of skin and mucous membranes


irritant effects

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation.

Coughing is a symptom of a respiratory tract irritation after inhalation of aerosols or mists from caustic liquids.

In the eye, irritating liquids cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, irritation of the conjunctiva and, in exceptional cases, damage to the cornea.

There is a danger of blindness if corneas are damaged!

Superficial irritations and only infrequent damage with ulcerations develop on the skin.

An irritation of the mucous membranes may develop and lead to coughing after inhalation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:       Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:       high volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Hazardous fumes in fires, specific to the product:

hydrochloric acid

Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic products may occur

Advice for firefighters:

Water for fire fighting must not be introduced in the sewer system, subsoil, or surface waters. Assure that there are sufficient fire water retaining facilities Contaminated fire fighting water must be disposed of in conformity with the regulations of the local authorities.

In case of fire, remove the endangered barrels and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.

Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.

Wear suitable protective clothing.

wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Avoid contact with skin.

Keep unauthorized persons away

Environmental precautions

Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).

Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.

If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Pick up with suitable adsorbent material.

Suitable binder:       vermiculite, universal absorbent, dry sand

Transfer into suitable containers.

Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.

Pack and label wastes like the pure substance. Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.

Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Additional advice:

Dispose of contaminated material as a waste in a correct manner.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Use permissible in closed systems only. Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).

Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks. Do not ventilate into the open.

Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Empty, clean and dry system / system components completely before maintenance and repair work is done.

Written approval necessary in case of non-routine jobs, e.g. maintenance activities.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

No special measures are required.


Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.

Suitable materials       stainless steel

Unsuitable materials       Light metals, copper, brass and their alloys

Do not store together with: strong acids, bases.

Further information:

In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
