Description of first aid measures:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

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:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.

Rinse out mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Headache, vertigo, somnolence (sleepiness), nausea.
May cause lung damage if swallowed.
Health injuries may be delayed.

Harmful in contact with skin and if swallowed.Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
After accidental absorption in the body, the pathology and clinical findings are dependent on the kinetics of the noxious substance (quantity of absorbed substance, the absorption time, and the effectiveness of early elimination measures (first aid)/ excretion - metabolism).
Continue with first aid measures.
Depending on the pathology and clinical findings, patient monitoring and symptomatic treatment are necessary.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Do not use full-force water jet in order to avoid dispersal and spread of the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitric oxides, organic products of decomposition.

Advice for firefighters
Water for fire fighting must not be introduced in the sewer system, subsoil, or surface waters. Assure that there are sufficient fire water retaining facilities Contaminated fire fighting water must be disposed of in conformity with the regulations of the local authorities.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Pay attention to self-protection.
Keep out unprotected persons.
In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Keep unauthorized persons away.

Environmental precautions
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Absorb with liquid-binding material, e. g.: chemisorption, diatomaceous earth, universal binder
Transfer into suitable containers.
Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance. Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Use permissible in closed systems only. Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).
Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks. Do not ventilate into the open.
Suitable loading and unloading device required.
Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.
Empty, clean and dry system / system components completely before maintenance and repair work is done.
Written approval necessary in case of non-routine jobs, e.g. maintenance activities.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.
Further information
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
Advice on common storage
Observe prohibition against storing together!
