First-aid measures

General advice : Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show the label where possible).
Inhalation: Remove from exposure, lie down. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. Monitor breathing, give oxygen if
necessary. Consult a physician.
Skin contact: Wash off with plenty of water.
Eye contact: Flush eyes with water as a precaution. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.
Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Dry powder, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Further information: Standard procedure for chemical fires.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Use personal protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Avoid subsoil penetration. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
Methods for cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).

Handling and storage

Safe handling advice: Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: No special protective measures against fire required.

Exposure controls / personal protection

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Respiratory protection: No personal respiratory protective equipment normally required. In inadequately ventilated areas, where workplace limits are exceeded, where unpleasant odours exist or where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, use self-contained breathing apparatus or
breathing apparatus with a type A filter or appropriate combined filter (e.g. where aerosols are in use, or smoke and mist occur, A-P2 or ABEK-P2), in compliance with EN 141.
Hand protection: The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other. Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the
gloves. Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the
contact time. Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time
measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).
gloves suitable for permanent contact: Material: Nitrile rubber/nitrile latex; Break through time: >= 480 min; Material thickness: 0.35 mm
Material: butyl-rubber; Break through time: >= 480 min; Material thickness: 0.5 mm
gloves suitable for splash protection: Material: Polychloroprene; Break through time: >= 240 min; Material thickness: 0.5 mm
unsuitable gloves: Material: Natural rubber/natural latex, Polyvinylchloride
Eye protection: Tightly fitting safety goggles
Protective measures:Avoid contact with eyes. Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

Stability and reactivity

No decomposition if stored normally.

Disposal considerations

Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.
