First-aid measures

As a general rule, in case of doubt or if symptoms persist, always call a doctor.
NEVER induce swallowing in an unconscious person.

In the event of exposure by inhalation:
If a large quantity is inhaled, move the patient into the fresh air and keep him/her warm and still.

In the event of splashes or contact with eyes:
Wash thoroughly with soft, clean water for 15 minutes holding the eyelids open.
Refer the patient to an ophthalmologist, in particular if there is any redness, pain or visual impairment.

In the event of splashes or contact with skin:
Remove contaminated clothing and wash the skin thoroughly with soap and water or a recognised cleaner.
DO NOT use solvents or thinners.

In the event of swallowing:
In the event of swallowing, if the quantity is small (no more than one mouthful), rinse the mouth with water and consult a doctor.
If swallowed accidentally, call a doctor to assess the need for monitoring and subsequent treatment in hospital. Show him the label.

Fire-fighting measures

Combustible liquid.
Can form explosive peroxides with prolonged contact with air.
Keep packages near the fire cool, to prevent pressurised containers from bursting.

Suitable extinguishing media:
In the event of fire, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide and water.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Due to the toxicity of the gas emitted on thermal decomposition of the products, fire-fighting personnel are to be equipped with autonomous insulating breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Consult the safety measures listed under headings "Handlind and Sorage" and "Exposure control/Personal protection".

Environmental precautions:
Contain and control the leaks or spills with non-combustible absorbent materials such as sand, earth, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth in drums for waste disposal.
Prevent any material from entering drains or waterways.
Use drums to dispose of waste recovered in accordance with applicable regulations (see heading "Disposal considerations").
If the product contaminates waterways, rivers or drains, alert the relevant authorities in accordance with statutory procedures

Methods for cleaning up:
Clean preferably with a detergent, do not use solvents.

Handling and storage

The regulations relating to storage premises apply to workshops where the product is handled.

Handle in well-ventilated areas.
Avoid contact with: - hot surfaces - air.

Fire prevention:
Prevent access by unauthorised personnel.

Recommended equipment and procedures:
For personal safety, see "Exposure control/Personal protection".
Observe precautions stated on label and also industrial safety regulations
Packages which have been opened must be reclosed carefully and stored in an upright position

Prohibited equipment and procedures:
Smoking, eating and drinking are prohibited in premises where the preparation is used
Never open the packages under pressure

Keep the container tightly closed in a dry place.
The floor must be impermeable and form a collecting basin so that, in the event of an accidental spillage, the liquid cannot spread beyond this area.

Specific use(s):
Recommended packaging material: Stainless steel.

Additional transport information

Additional transport information
Exempt from transport classification and labelling.
Transport product in compliance with provisions of the ADR for road, RID for rail, IMDG for sea and ICAO/IATA for air transport (ADR 2009 - IMDG 2008 - ICAO/IATA 2009).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Use personal protection equipment as per Directive 89/686/EEC.

Technical measures:
Ensure adequate ventilation, if possible with extractor fans at work posts and appropriate general extraction.
If this ventilation is insufficient to maintain the concentration of solvent vapors below the exposure limits, wear breathing apparatus
Provide safety showers and eye washes in workshops where the product is handled constantly.

Respiratory protection:
Where workers encounter concentrations higher than the exposure limits, they must wear suitable, approved masks.

Hand protection:
Protective creams may be used for exposed skin, but they should not be applied after contact with the product.
In the event of prolonged or repeated contact with the hands, use appropriate gloves.

Eye and face protection:
Use eye protectors designed to protect against liquid splashes

Skin protection:
For further information, see § - Toxicological information.

Stability and reactivity

When exposed to high temperatures, the preparation may release dangerous decomposition products such as carbon monoxide and dioxide,
smoke and nitrogen oxide
Can form explosive peroxides with prolonged contact with air.

Materials to avoid:
Strong oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Do not pour into drains or waterways.

Recycle or dispose of waste in compliance with current legislation, preferably via a certified collector or company.
Do not contaminate the ground or water with waste, do not dispose of waste into the environment.

Soiled packaging:
Empty container completely. Keep label(s) on container.
