First-aid measures

4.1. Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth and then drink plenty of water.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see section 2) and/or in section 11.
Further important symptoms and effects are so far not known.
4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water jet
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
harmful vapours
Evolution of fumes/fog. The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
5.3. 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

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Breathing protection required.
6.2. Environmental precautions
Contain contaminated water/firefighting water. Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling
No special measures necessary provided product is used correctly.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep only in the original container. Segregate from foodstuffs. Store under good ventilation above 10°C. In case of crystallisation due to low temperatures heat to about 30°C until a clear solution is obtained.
Storage stability:
Storage temperature: >= 10 °C

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials for short-term contact (recommended: At least protective index 2, corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 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:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended. No eating, drinking, smoking or tobacco use at the place of work.
