First-aid measures

Eye contact: Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician
Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water removing all contaminated clothes and shoes
Ingestion: Get medical attention. Clean mouth with water, only if the person is in conscious.
Inhalation. Remove from exposure, lie down. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing,
give artificial respiration.

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 18(4) for transported isolated intermediates as we manufacture Compactin crude to manufacture Compactin. Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available both at the production site and the use site.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water spray. Carbon dioxide (CO2). Foam. Dry powder.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: No information available.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Thermal decomposition can lead to release of irritating gases and vapors. Combustible material.

Advice for firefighters:
Special protective equipment for firefighters: As in any fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent) and full protective gear

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Use personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with dusts/fumes/mists/vapors.

Environmental precautions:
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and
place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13). If emergency, enforce internal emergency

Handling and storage

Precautions for Safe Handling:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Do not breathe
vapors/dust. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed.

Hygiene Measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Keep container tightly closed. Protect from light. Keep in a dry place. Keep in properly labeled containers. Keep at temperatures
