First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. If the patient is likely to become
unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). Immediately remove
contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention. Immediately inhale corticosteroid dose
On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.
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:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
dry powder, carbon dioxide, foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Breathing protection required. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing.
Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,
kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect against moisture.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated
Storage stability:
Storage duration: 12 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the
warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Self-contained breathing apparatus.
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
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,
corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.
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
General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray.

Remarks: Forms no flammable gases in the
presence of water.
Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Evolution of corrosive gases/vapours. Reacts with water and basic components to generate heat. On
contact with water, gaseous decomposition products are formed, which cause build-up of pressure in
tightly closed containers. Reacts with alkalies and metals. Reacts with alcohols, amines, aqueous
acids and alkalies. Reacts with water and moisture, with formation of hydrogen chloride. Partly very
violent reactions with bases and numerous organic classes of substances such as alcohols and
amines. Addition of water leads to increase in temperature. In damp air hydrochloric acid formation is
possible. Violent reactions with water and/or alcohols, with formation of hydrochloric acid.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid electro-static charge. Avoid humidity. Avoid heat. Avoid prolonged storage. Disregard of the
conditions mentioned may result in undesirable decomposition reactions.
Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
alkaline reactive substances, alcohols, bases, amines, water
Hazardous decomposition products
Hazardous decomposition products:
hydrogen chloride

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
