First-aid measures

General advice:

Remove contaminated clothing.

If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:

Wash thoroughly with soap and water.

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:

Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Note to physician:

Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific

antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

water spray, foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:

water jet

Specific hazards:

carbon oxides, sulfur oxides

Special protective equipment:

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:

The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated

extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Avoid dust formation. Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective

measures see, chapter 8.

Environmental precautions:

Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface

waters/groundwater.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up:

For small amounts: Pick up with suitable appliance and dispose of.

For large amounts: Contain with dust binding material and dispose of.

Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Handling

Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation.

Check peroxide content before use

Protection against fire and explosion:

Avoid dust formation. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Storage

Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

7647-14-5: sodium chloride

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection:

Suitable respiratory protection for lower concentrations or short-term effect: Particle filter with medium

efficiency for solid and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)

Hand protection:

Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)

Suitable materials 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), polyvinylchloride (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.

Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:

Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.

Body protection:

Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting

boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of

dust).

General safety and hygiene measures:

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work

clothing is recommended.
