Inhalation
Move to fresh air. Keep patient warm and at rest. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Skin contact
Wash off thoroughly with plenty of soap and water, if available with polyethyleneglycol 400, subsequently rinse with water. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Eye contact
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes, then continue rinsing eye. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Ingestion
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.

Notes to physician

Treatment
Treat symptomatically.
In case of ingestion gastric lavage should be considered in cases of significant ingestions only within the first 2 hours. However, the application of activated charcoal and sodium sulphate is always advisable. There is no specific antidote.

Accidental release measures

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Precautions
Avoid contact with spilled product or contaminated surfaces. Use personal protective equipment.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Do not allow to get into surface water, drains and ground water.
6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up
Use mechanical handling equipment. Clean contaminated floors and objects thoroughly, observing environmental regulations. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Manufacture and use takes place under strictly controlled conditions. The substance is rigorously contained (production, use), appropriate risk management measures are applied and a management system is in place. An authorisation scheme covers the process and a procedure ensures that only trained and authorised persons handle the substance. Process procedures for containment during cleaning and maintenance have been accounted for in plant and engineering design as appropriate for the site. Procedures to ensure containment have been applied for all stages of production and processing. Occupational procedures have been assessed and are documented.

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling
Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation.
Hygiene measures
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Keep working clothes separately. Wash hands immediately after work, if necessary take a shower. Remove soiled clothing immediately and clean thoroughly before using again. Garments that cannot be cleaned must be destroyed (burnt).

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store in a place accessible by authorized persons only.
Advice on common storage
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Manufacture and use takes place under strictly controlled conditions. The substance is rigorously contained (production, use), appropriate risk management measures are applied and a management system is in place. An authorisation scheme covers the process and a procedure ensures that only trained and authorised persons handle the substance. Process procedures for containment during cleaning and maintenance have been accounted for in plant and engineering design as appropriate for the site. Procedures to ensure containment have been applied for all stages of production and processing. Occupational procedures have been assessed and are documented.

Exposure controls
Respiratory protection
If product is handled while not enclosed, and if contact may occur:
Wear respirator with a particle filter mask (protection factor 20) conforming to European Norm EN149FFP3 or EN140P3 or equivalent. Respiratory protection should only be used to control residual risk of short duration activities, when all reasonably practicable steps have been taken to reduce exposure at source e.g. containment and/or local extract ventilation. Always follow respirator manufacturer's instructions regarding wearing and maintenance.

Hand protection
Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the contact time.
Wash gloves when contaminated. Dispose of when contaminated inside, when perforated or when contamination on the outside cannot be removed. Wash hands frequently and always before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
Material Nitrile rubber
Rate of permeability > 480 min
Glove thickness > 0,4 mm
Protective index Class 6
Directive Protective gloves complying with EN 374.

Eye protection
Wear goggles (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 5 or equivalent) and faceshield (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 3 or equivalent).

Skin and body protection
Wear standard coveralls and Category 3 Type 4 suit.
If there is a risk of significant exposure, consider a higher protective type suit.
Wear two layers of clothing wherever possible. Polyester/cotton or cotton overalls should be worn under chemical protection suit and should be professionally laundered frequently.
If chemical protection suit is splashed, sprayed or significantly contaminated, decontaminate as far as possible, then carefully remove and dispose of as advised by manufacturer

General protective measures
If product is handled while not enclosed, and if contact may occur:
Complete suit protecting against chemicals
