First-aid measures

General advice : Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations.  Supplemental oxygen may be indicated.  If the heart has stopped, trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.   Eye contact : Hold eyelids apart, initiate and maintain gentle and continuous irrigation until the patient receives medical care.  If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour.    Skin contact : Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay. Flush immediately with copious amounts of water. Initiate and maintain continuous irrigation until  the patient receives medical care.  If medical care is not promptly available, continue to irrigate for one hour. Cover wound with sterile dressing.    Ingestion : Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Prevent aspiration of vomit.  Turn victim's head to the side.   Inhalation : Move to fresh air.   Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed    Symptoms  : No data available.  Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed  

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media  

Suitable extinguishing media : Alcohol-resistant foam. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Dry chemical. Dry sand. Limestone powder.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons.  No data available.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture  Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. May generate ammonia gas. May generate toxic nitrogen oxide gases. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes. Downwind personnel must be evacuated

Advice for fire-fighters Avoid contact with the skin. A face shield should be worn. Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Further information Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses., Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing  water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.  

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures  : Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection. Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing. Evacuate personnel to safe areas.  

Environmental precautions:  Construct a dike to prevent spreading.  

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up : Contact Air Products' Emergency Response Center for advice. Approach suspected leak areas with caution. Place in appropriate chemical waste container.

 Additional advice: If possible, stop flow of product.  

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Emergency showers and eye wash stations should be readily accessible. Adhere to work practice rules established by government regulations. Avoid contact with eyes. Use personal protective equipment. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.   Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities Do not store near acids. Store in steel containers preferably located outdoors, above ground, and surrounded by dikes to contain spills or leaks. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.   Specific end use(s) Refer to section 1 or the extended SDS if applicable

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers. Provide natural or explosion-proof ventilation adequate to ensure concentrations are kept below exposure limits.  Personal protective equipment Hand protection : Butyl-rubber Nitrile rubber. Neoprene gloves. Impervious gloves. The breakthrough time of the selected glove(s) must be greater than the intended use period.  Eye protection : Full face shield with goggles underneath. Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.   Skin and body protection : Impervious clothing. Full rubber suit (rain gear). Rubber or plastic boots. Long sleeve shirts and trousers without cuffs.   Special instructions for : Discard contaminated leather articles. Remove contaminated clothing. Drench protection and hygiene affected area with water for at least 15 minutes. Wash at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or using the toilet. Formaldehyde concentrations in the workplace air may exceed the exposure limit under unusual conditions of use. Minor components will migrate into the container headspace. Levels in excess of the exposure limits can accumulate in non-vented container headspaces. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.  

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity  Refer to possibility of hazardous reactions and/or incompatible materials sections

Chemical Stability : : Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions : No data available.

Conditions to avoid : No data available.

Incompatible materials : Organic acids (i.e. acetic acid, citric acid etc.). Mineral acids. Sodium hypochlorite. Product slowly corrodes copper, aluminum, zinc and galvanized surfaces. Reaction with peroxides may result in violent decomposition of peroxide possibly creating an explosion. Oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products: Nitric acid. Ammonia Nitrogen oxides (NOx). Nitrogen oxide can react with water vapors to form corrosive nitric acid. Carbon monoxide.  Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment : Contact supplier

Contaminated packaging: Dispose of container and unused contents in accordance with federal, state, and local requirements.
