First-aid measures

First-aid measures general: In case of spontaneous vomiting, transport the victim to a hospital, to verify the possibility that the product has been aspired into the lungs.
First-aid measures after inhalation: Remove to fresh air, keep the casualty warm and at rest. If casualty is unconscious and not breathing: ensure that there is no obstruction to breathing and give artificial respiration by trained personnel. If necessary, give external cardiac massage and obtain medical advice. If the casualty is breathing: Place in the recovery position. Administer oxygen if necessary.
First-aid measures after skin contact: Remove contaminated clothing, contaminated footwear and dispose of safely. Wash skin with soap and water. If inflammation or irritation persists, seek medical advice. When using high-pressure equipment, injection of product can occur. Send the casualty immediately to hospital. Do not wait for symptoms to develop.
First-aid measures after eye contact: Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do so. Rinse eyes thoroughly for at least 15 minutes. Keep eyelids well apart. If irritation, blurred vision or swelling occurs and persists, obtain medical advice from a specialist.
First-aid measures after ingestion: Do not induce vomiting to avoid aspiration into the lungs. If the person is conscious, rinse mouth with water without swallowing. Keep at rest. Call for medical assistance or bring to an hospital. If the casualty is inconscious, place in the recovery position. In case of spontaneous vomiting, keep head low, to avoid the risk of aspiration into the lungs.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms / injuries (general indications): Aspiration into lungs can cause a chemical pneumonia. High concentration of vapours may induce: headache, nausea, dizziness. Irritant to skin. Suspected of damaging fertility. Suspected of damaging the unborn child.
Symptoms/effects after inhalation: Overexposure to vapours (e.g. through prolonged use in confined, insufficiently ventilated spaces) may cause irritation to airways, nausea and dizziness.
Symptoms/effects after skin contact: Causes skin irritation. Prolonged and repeated skin contact may cause reddening, irritation and dermatitis, due to a defatting effect.
Symptoms/effects after eye contact: May cause slight irritation.
Symptoms/effects after ingestion: Swallowing the liquid may cause aspiration into the lungs with the risk of chemical pneumonitis.
Symptoms/effects upon intravenous administration: No information available.
Chronic symptoms: Suspected of damaging fertility.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed: Obtain medical attention if casualty has an altered state of consciousness or if symptoms do not resolve. In case of ingestion, always assume that aspiration has occurred. The casualty should be sent immediately to hospital. Do not wait for symptoms to develop. If necessary, drain stomach by gastric lavage ONLY under qualified medical supervision.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Small-size fires: carbon dioxide, dry chemicals, foam, sand or earth. Large fires: foam or water fog (mist). These means should be used by trained personnel only. Other extinguishing gases (according to regulations).
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jets. They could cause splattering, and spread the fire. Simultaneous use of foam and water on the same surface is to be avoided as water destroys the foam.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Fire hazard: Extremely flammable.
Explosion hazard: The vapours are flammable and may form explosive mixtures with air.
Hazardous decomposition products in case of fire: Incomplete combustion is likely to give rise to a complex mixture of airborne solid and liquid particulates, gases, including carbon monoxide, NOx (harmful/toxic gases). Oxygenated compounds (aldehydes, etc.). Solid particulate.
Advice for firefighters:
Firefighting instructions: Shut off source of product, if possible. If possible, move containers and drums away from danger area. Spilled product which is not burning should be covered with sand or foam. Use water sprays to cool containers and surfaces exposed to the flames. If the fire cannot be controlled, evacuate area.
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Personal protection equipment for firefighters (see also sect. 8). In case of a large fire or in confined or poorly ventilated spaces, wear full fire resistant protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode. EN 443. EN 469. EN 659.
Other information: In case of fire, do not discharge residual product, waste materials and runoff water: collect separately and use a proper treatment.


Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
General measures: Stop or contain leak at the source, if safe to do so. Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so (e.g. electricity, sparks, fires, flares). Use only non-sparking tools. Avoid direct contact with released material. Keep upwind.
For non-emergency personnel:
Protective equipment: see section Exposure controls/protective equipment
Emergency procedures: Alert emergency personnel. Except in case of small spillages, the feasibility of any actions should always be assessed and advised, if possible, by a trained, competent person in charge of managing the emergency.
For emergency responders:
Protective equipment: Small spillages: normal antistatic working clothes are usually adequate. Large spillages: full body suit of chemically resistant and antistatic material. Work gloves providing adequate chemical resistance, specifically to aromatic hydrocarbons. Gloves made of PVA are not water-resistant, and are not suitable for emergency use. Antistatic non-skid safety shoes or boots, chemical resistant. Work helmet. Goggles and /or face shield, if splashes or contact with eyes is possible or anticipated. Respiratory protection: a half or full-face respirator with filter(s) for organic vapours (AX), or a Self-contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) can be used according to the extent of spill and predictable amount of exposure. a half or full-face respirator with filter(s) for organic vapours (AX), or a Self-contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) can be used according to the extent of spill and predictable amount of exposure.
Emergency procedures: Notify local authorities according to relevant regulations. In case of large spillages, alert occupants in downwind areas.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product accumulate in confined or underground spaces. Do not let the product flow into sewers or water courses, or in any way contaminate the environment. In case of contamination of environment compartments (soil, subsoil, surface or underground waters), remove contaminated soil when possible, and in any case treat all involved compartments in accordance with local regulations. The site should have a spill plan to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to minimize the impact of episodic releases. Danger of drinking-water pollution (ground water).
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For containment: Contain spilled liquid with sand, earth or other suitable absorbents (non-flammable). Recover free liquid and waste materials in suitable waterproof and oil-resistant containers. Clean contaminated area. Dispose of according to local regulations. Large spillages may be cautiously covered with foam, if available, to limit fire risk. Do not use direct jets. When inside buildings or confined spaces, ensure adequate ventilation. If in water: In case of small spillages in closed waters (i.e. ports). Confine the spillage. Remove from surface by suitable absorbents. Collect recovered product and other waste materials in suitable waterproof, oil resistant containers. Recover or dispose of according to local regulations. If possible, large spillages in open waters should be contained with floating barriers or other suitable mechanical means. If this is not possible: Isolate the area and prevent fire/explosion hazard for ships and other structures, taking into account wind direction and speed, until the product is completely dispersed.
Other information: Bund storage facilities to prevent soil and water pollution in the event of spillage. Do not use solvents or dispersants, unless specifically advised by an expert, and, if required, approved by local authorities. Recommended measures are based on the most likely spillage scenarios for this material; however, local conditions (wind, air temperature, wave/current direction and speed) may significantly influence the choice of appropriate actions.
