First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures

General information: First aider: Pay attention to self-protection!

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.

In case of ingestion: Call a physician immediately.

4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Pharmacological class: Appetite Depressants, Central Nervous System Stimulants.

Exposure can cause: CNS stimulation, nausea, dizziness and headache, gastrointestinal disturbances.

Other symptoms of exposure can include palpitations, tachycardia, arrhythmias, nervousness, restlessness, confusion, depression, agitation, tremor, insomnia, and dry mouth. Prolonged or repeated exposure can lead to habituation or addiction.       

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

When symptoms suggesting toxicity, immediate medical treatment necessary. If possible, show this data sheet.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, foam.

5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In case of fire may be liberated: Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride.

5.3 Precautions for fire-fighters

Do not inhale explosion and combustion gases.

5.4 Further information

Contaminated fire extinguishing water must collect separately. It must not be discharged into drains.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Wear personal protection equipment. Wear breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dusts.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Do not allow to enter drains/surface water/ground-water.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Use chemical absorbents. Sweep up spilled material and place into suitable labelled containers. The material collected according to the section Disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

All work processes must always be designed so that the following is as low as possible: Inhalation, Skin contact, Eye contact. The product is combustible, keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. The substance is registered under the Regulation EG1907/2006 (REACH) as a transported isolated intermediate; the use must be complied with the conditions in Article 18 (4).

7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Provide adequate ventilation as well as local exhaustion at critical locations.

Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place. Do not store at temperatures above 30 °C.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters

Limits for occupational safety: the substance is not listed. Limits for occupational safety are not be valid, because the substance must be used in closed system according to Article 18 (4) REACH. Exposures are therefore minimized.

8.2 Exposure controls

Appropriate engineering controls:

Immediately change contaminated clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. General room ventilation is adequate unless the process generates dust or fumes. Work clothing should be removed in a change room on site and laundered professionally. Employees should shower and change into street clothes before leaving the facility. Prevent the accumulation of dust in the work area by thorough periodic cleaning of the area.

Personal protective equipment:

Protective clothing should be selected specifically for the working place, depending on concentration and quantity of the hazardous substances handled. The resistance of the protective clothing to chemicals should be ascertained with the respective supplier.

Respiratory protection: Is required whenever air contamination (dust, mist, or vapors) is generated by the process. A NIOSH-approved high efficiency toxic dust/mist/fume respirator is recommended.

Eye protection:       required

Hand protection:       In full and splash contact:

Glove material:       Butyl-/Nitrile rubber

             Layer thickness: 0.11 mm

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC directive 89/686/EEC and the resultant standard EN374.

This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safe data sheet and supplied by us as well as to the purpose specified by us. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves.
