Description of first aid measures

General advice:

Call a physician immediately. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance. Move out of dangerous area. Do not leave the victim unattended.


If inhaled:

Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If unconscious, place in recovery position and seek medical advice. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Keep respiratory tract clear. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If symptoms persist, call a physician.


In case of skin contact:

Wash skin immediately with plenty of water and soap. Subsequent cleansing with polyethyleneglycol 400, then again with water and soap. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.


In case of eye contact:

Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Protect unharmed eye. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist


If swallowed:

Rinse mouth with water. Give small amounts of water to drink. DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a physician or poison control center. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Keep respiratory tract clear. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Take victim immediately to hospital. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO₂.


Unsuitable extinguishing media:

None known.


Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting:

In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Harmful to aquatic life with long lasting effects.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters:

Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.


Further information:

Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. 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

Personal precautions:

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Put on appropriate personal protection equipment.


Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions:

Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.


Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up:

Stop leak if safe to do so. Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling:

Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Avoid release to the environment. Use only with adequate ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations.


Advice on protection against fire and explosion:

Normal measures for preventive fire protection


Hygiene measures:

When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.


Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible and food and drink. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards. To dissipate static electricity during transfer, earth drum and connect to receiving container with bonding strap. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic discharges.
