First-aid measures

General:
Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Medical treatment is necessary if symptoms occur which are obviously caused by skin or eye contact with the product or by inhalation of its vapours.
4.1 Description of first aid measures
Inhalation:
Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated. Move victims into fresh air. With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor. If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.
Skin Contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.
Eye contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses if this can be easily done. Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.
Ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
None known.
4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Hazards:
No data available.
Treatment:
No

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards:
Standard procedure for chemical fires. Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment. In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. 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.
5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
foam Dry powder Carbon dioxide
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, organic products of decomposition.
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special fire fighting procedures:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Assure sufficient ventilation. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Use breathing appatus if exposed to vapors/dust/mist/aerosol. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling.
6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel:
No data available.
6.1.2 For emergency responders:
No data available.
6.2 Environmental Precautions:
Do not allow to sink into ground water, sewers or into surface water. Contain spilled product and prevent any contamination of soil, the sewer system or water bodies. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Larger quantities: Remove mechanically (by pumping). Use explosion-proof equipment! Soak up small amounts with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Dispose of contaminated material in accordance with regulations.
6.4 Reference to other sections:
For personal protection see section 8. For disposal considerations see section 13.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:
Do not breathe vapors. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not eat, drink or smoke during use. Normal measures for preventive fire protection. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. In case of fire cool endangered containers with water. When heated above the flash point and/or during spraying (atomizing), ignitible mixtures may form in air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep container tightly closed. Ensure there is good room ventilation.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Protect from the action of light. Fill the container by approximately 90 % only as oxygen (air) is required for stabilisation. With large storage containers make sure the oxygen (air) supply is sufficient to ensure stability.Keep only in the original container at a temperature not exceeding 30 °C.Can polymerize with intense heat release.
7.3 Specific end use(s):
We are unaware of any specific end uses which go beyond the data reported in Section 1.
