First-aid measures

Remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water. Consult a doctor if skin irritation persists.

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:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry powder, carbon dioxide
The product is combustible. Cool endangered containers with water-spray.
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.

For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of contaminated material as prescribed.

Handling and storage

Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas.

Protection against fire and explosion:
Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Sources of ignition should be kept well clear.

Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

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):
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
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.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

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
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.
