After absorbing large amounts of substance:

administration of activated charcoal.

Acceleration of gastrointestinal passage

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

All extinguishing substances suitable.

Specific hazards during fire fighting

May be released in case of fire: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information

Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.

Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.

Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Wear personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.

Methods for cleaning up

Pick up mechanically with a suitable material and collect in a suitable container.

Additional advice

Isolate and seal off defective containers immediately.

Handling and storage

Handling

Safe handling advice

Local ventilation.

Always close container tightly after removal of product.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Explosion protection is recommended in case the explosion limits for the following substance might be exceeded: Ethanol.

Danger of explosion from residual product fumes; therefore avoid spark production through cutting, grinding, or welding work in the area of the container.

When repairs of the production system are to be made (e.g. welding work), the section to be repaired must be essentially free of product.

Keep away from humidity.

Storage

Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Advice on common storage

Do not store together with: acids and alcaline solutions.

Storage stability

10 - 40 °C  

Do not store longer than 12 months.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters

Engineering measures

see section 7.

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection

If respirable aersols / vapour occurs:

Respirator with brown A-type filter

Hand protection

Wear protective gloves made from a tough material.

Glove material       butyl-rubber

Material thickness       0.5 mm

Break through time       >= 480 min

Glove material       nitrile rubber

Material thickness       0.35 mm

Break through time       >= 480 min

Glove material       Fluorinated rubber (Viton)

Material thickness       0.4 mm

Break through time       >= 480 min

Be aware that in daily use the durability of a chemical resistant protective glove can be notably shorter than the break through time measured according to EN 374, due to the numerous outside influences (e.g. temperature).

The rupture time and material thickness data are guideline values! Exact rupture time / material thickness data can be obtained from the protective glove manufacturer.

Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.

Eye protection

goggles

Skin and body protection

No special protective equipment required.

When handling larger quantities:

disposable protective suit

(Solvent-resistant)

Hygiene measures

No eating, drinking, smoking, or snuffing tobacco at work.

Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Preventive skin protection recommended.

Protective measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices.

If the limits at the workplace are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.

If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.

Stability and reactivity

Materials to avoid

Reaction with water, acids and alcaline solutions., Formation of ethanol.

Hazardous decomposition products

decomposition products with heating above decomposition temperature

Thermal decomposition

> 150 °C       (1013 mbar)

Disposal considerations

Product

Can be incinerated, when in compliance with local regulations.

Uncleaned packaging

Contaminated packaging should ideally be emptied; it can then be recycled after having been decontaminated.

Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
