First-aid measures

General advice
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
If aerosol or mists are formed:
Possible discomfort: severe irritation of mucous lining (nose, throat, eyes), cough, sneezing, flow of tears
Move victims into fresh air.
If breathing difficulties occur:
Keep patient half sitting with upper body raised.
Consult a physician immediately.
Skin contact
Wash off immediately with plenty of water.
Consult a physician.
Eye contact
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Continue rinsing process with eye rinsing solution.
Protect unharmed eye.
Call ambulance. (Cue: caustic burn of the eyes)
Immediate further treatment in ophthalmic hospital/ ophthalmologist.
Continue rinsing eye until arrival at ophthalmic hospital.
Do not induce vomiting.
Only when patient fully conscious:
Have the mouth rinsed with water.
Have patient drink plenty of water in small sips.
Notify ambulance immediately (keyword: chemical burn).
Notes to physician
Therapy as for chemical burn.
If substance has been swallowed:
Early endoscopy in order to assess mucosa lesions in the oesophagus and stomach which may appear.
If necessary, suck away leftover substance.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
foam, CO2, dry powder
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Specific hazards during fire fighting
Hazardous fumes in fires, specific to the product:
hydrogen chloride
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Have ready/wear respiratory protection equipment.
Further information
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Use personal protective equipment.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow substance to enter soil, bodies of water or sewage canals.
Methods for cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.
Suitable binder: sand (for damming up), sawdust, universal absorbent

Handling and storage

Safe handling advice
Provide good ventilation or extraction.
Ventilators required at emission site.
Protect from moisture.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Protect from moisture.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

• Hydrogen chloride
CAS-No. 7647-01-0 EC-No.
Control parameters 5 ppm
8 mg/m3 Time Weighted Average (TWA):(EU ELV)

Control parameters 10 ppm
15 mg/m3 Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL):(EU ELV)
Engineering measures
If possible, use material transfer/filling, metering and blending plants that are closed.
If contact with gases or vapours cannot be excluded: Provide good ventilation or extraction.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type ABEK) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Use only respiratory protection equipment with CE-symbol including four digit test number.
The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
Hand protection
Glove material for example, butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Glove material for example, Fluorinated rubber (Viton)
Material thickness 0,4 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).
Eye protection
close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles)
Skin and body protection
When handling larger quantities:
chemical protective suit, disposable protective clothing, acid-proof
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove immediately all contaminated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Protective measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.
It should be defined in the work place in the form of a risk analysis according to directive 89/686/EEC and amendments.
If the limits at the workplace are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
Use protective clothing / face shield if necessary.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous decomposition products
hydrogen chloride in case of hydrolysis and thermal decomposition

Hazardous reactions
Reacts violently with:
atmospheric humidity
strong oxidants

Disposal considerations

With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Packaging, that can not be reused after cleaning must be disposed or recycled in accordance with all federal, national and local regulations.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
