First-aid measures

General advice:
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If the patient is likely to become unconscious, place and transport in stable sideways position (recovery position). If not breathing, give artificial respiration. 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:
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. Do not induce vomiting due to the product ingredients.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote. Pulmonary odema prophylaxis. Medical monitoring for at least 24 hours.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide
Specific hazards:
carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
The degree of risk is governed by the burning substance and the fire conditions. Contaminated
extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Use personal protective clothing.
Environmental precautions:
Do not empty into drains. Do not discharge into the subsoil/soil.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose
binder, kieselguhr).
For large amounts: Pump off product.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Precautions for safe handling:
Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy.

Storage:
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Unsuitable materials for containers: Aluminium
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:
Use gauntlets.
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to
EN 374):
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
butyl rubber (butyl) - 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 (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. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
