Wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and water. Seek medical attention.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
carbon dioxide, dry powder, foam
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Evolution of fumes/fog.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr).
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Vacuum up spilled product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from oxidants.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated
place. Protect from the effects of light.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and
safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal
protection equipment. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift.
