First-aid measures

Poisoning by inhalation: evacuate the affected person from the area of exposure. Keep the affected person still in any position. Threat is also caused by gaseous combustion products or products of explosion.Skin contamination: wash the skin with large amount of running water and soap. In case of changes on skin or deterioration of mood, call medical assistance.Eye contamination: rinse with large amount water, preferably running water (avoid strong jets of water due to the risk of mechanical injury to cornea. Call medical assistance.Poisoning by ingestion: immediately after swallow drink lot of water and if possible give medicinal carbon and induce vomiting. Call medical assistance

Fire-fighting measures

Warn surroundings about explosion hazardIf the product is involved into fire, do not try to extinguish, evacuate every person in the area.If the product is not directly involved into fire, extinguish fire using appropriate means, according to type of fire. Prevent fire from reaching the product.Call the Fire Brigade and Police.Extinguishing means: water from safe distance, carbon dioxide, extinguishing powders, alcohol resistance foams.

Accidental release measures

In case of spilling belong to limit the chance to penetrate the nitroglycerine to soil and surface water. It is necessary to powder the spilt nitroglycerine with the wood flour or the other absorbent not less than for total absorbing of the liquid. Absorbent impregnated with the nitroglycerine has to be collected manually and put into containers with the wood flour at the bottom. After collecting the whole nitroglycerine, the place of spilling has to be neutralizes with a 10% the solution of the sodium carbonate. The absorbent with the nitroglycerine has to be burned on the special place. Workers for execution of this work have to be skilled.

Handling and storage

Apply safety measures while using the product: refrain from eating and drinking, avoid contact a skin with the product, avoid inhaling fumes and vapors, ensure personal hygiene, work in ventilated spaces, do not use sparkling tools and avoid exposing the product to open fire, high temperatures and shock. Protect from weather conditions (direct exposure to sun rays, frost and lightning's impact

Exposure controls / personal protection

For nitroglycerine fumes:Maximum Workplace Concentration:0,5 mg/m3Temporary Maximum Workplace Concentration:1 mg/m3Total exposure – the sum of multiplicities of the occurring concentrations up to the ‘Maximum Work Place Concentration’ values <1.Required personal protections: - acid-proof working clothes and head-dress. - „3M 6200” anti-gas respirator outfitted with ABE1 cartridge when working with nitroesters; - rubber gloves when working with nitroesters;

Stability and reactivity

In the normal conditions the nitroglycerine is stabile substance. Operating of the temperature, the impact, friction and the electric spark are able to be the reason for the nitroglycerine's explosion. The nitroglycerine is subject to decomposition with contact to acids and baces. The chemical reaction with the strong acid is able to be self-catalytic and to lead to the explosion. The nitroglycerine is durable in organic solvents (acetone, ethanol, methanol). This one are no corrosive or oxidizing properties and isn't reacting with the stainless steel.

Disposal considerations

Waste glycerol trinitrate or its waste mixing with water, machine oil and absorbent are being destroyed by the burning, periodically on the special field in each producer's Plant
