First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures
General advice:
Move out of dangerous area. Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled : Remove to fresh air. Rinse nose and mouth with water.

In case of skin contact : Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash the skin immediately with soap and water.

In case of eye contact : Rinse with plenty of water. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

If swallowed : Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms : The symptoms and effects are as expected from the hazards as shown in section 2. No specific product related symptoms are known.

4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed Treatment : Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media Suitable extinguishing media : Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: High volume water jet

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture Specific hazards during firefighting / Specific hazards arising from the chemical : CAUTION: reignition may occur. Supports combustion. Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire. Water spray may be ineffective unless used by experienced firefighters. Risks of ignition followed by flame propagation or secondary explosions shall be prevented by avoiding accumulation of dust, e.g. on floors and ledges. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions.

Combustion products : Fire will produce smoke containing hazardous combustion products (see section 10).

5.3 Advice for firefighters Special protective equipment for firefighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information : Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions : Avoid dust formation. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition.

Emergency measures on accidental release : Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Only qualified personnel equipped with suitable protective equipment may intervene. Prevent unauthorised persons entering the zone.

6.2 Environmental precautions Environmental precautions : Prevent product from entering drains.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up Methods for cleaning up / Methods for containment : Keep wetted with water. Soak up with inert absorbent material and dispose of as hazardous waste. Confinement must be avoided. Pick up and arrange disposal without creating dust. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Never return spills in original containers for re-use.

6.4 Reference to other sections For disposal considerations see section 13. For personal protection see section 8.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling : For personal protection see section 8. Avoid creating dust. Keep away from heat/sparks/open flames/hot surfaces. No smoking. Do not smoke. Open drum carefully as content may be under pressure.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion : Use explosion protected equipment. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. No sparking tools should be used. Keep away from reducing agents (e.g. amines), acids, alkalies and heavy metal compounds (e.g. accelerators, driers, metal soaps). Do not cut or weld on or near this container even when empty. Keep away from combustible material.

Temperature class : It is recommended to use electrical equipment of temperature group T3. However, autoignition can never be excluded.

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers : No smoking. Keep in a well-ventilated place. Keep in a dry place. Observe label precautions. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. Store at room temperature in the original container. Keep only in original container. Store away from other materials.

Maximum storage temperature: 20 °C
Other data : No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.

7.3 Specific end use(s) Specific use(s) : Consult the technical guidelines for the use of this substance/mixture.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls

Engineering controls Explosion proof ventilation recommended. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. Personal protective equipment Respiratory protection : Half mask with a particle filter P2 (EN 143)

Hand protection : Neoprene

Nitrile rubber

Eye protection : Tightly fitting safety goggles

Skin and body protection : Protective suit

Hygiene measures : Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Environmental exposure controls General advice : Prevent product from entering drains.

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity Stable under normal conditions. 10.2 Chemical stability Stable under recommended storage conditions. 10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions Dust may form explosive mixture in air.

10.4 Conditions to avoid Conditions to avoid

: A high degree of confinement must be avoided. Heat, flames and sparks.

10.5 Incompatible materials Materials to avoid : Contact with the following incompatible materials will result in hazardous decomposition: Acids and bases Iron Copper Reducing agents Heavy metals Rust Do not mix with peroxide accelerators, unless under controlled processing. Use only stainless steel 316, PP, polyethylene or glass-lined equipment. For queries regarding the suitability of other materials please contact the supplier.

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products Hazardous decomposition products
: 1-Hexadecanol Carbon oxides

Thermal decomposition : SADT - (Self accelerating decomposition temperature) is the lowest temperature at which self accelerating decomposition may occur with a substance in the packaging as used in transport. A dangerous self-accelerating decomposition reaction and, under certain circumstances, explosion or fire can be caused by thermal decomposition at and above the SADT. Contact with incompatible substances can cause decomposition below the SADT.

Self-Accelerating decomposition temperature (SADT) : 40 °C

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods Product

: Do not dispose of waste into sewer. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with chemical or used container. Hazardous waste Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local regulation.

Contaminated packaging

: Empty remaining contents. Dispose of as unused product. Do not burn, or use a cutting torch on, the empty drum. Due to the high risk of contamination recycling/recovery is not recommended. Follow all warnings even after the container is emptied.
