General instructions

If health problems occur or if you suspect that your health may have been affected, contact your physician and give the information stated on this safety data sheet. If the affected person has lost consciousness or if you believe that he/she may lose consciousness, transport the person to a healthcare provider in a stabilised position, lying on his/her side.

When inhaled

Move the victim to fresh air.

SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS: headache, drowsiness, dizziness, convulsions, respiratory tract irritation (at strong exposition by aerosol and vapours).

In case of contact with skin

Wash the affected area thoroughly with water and soap for 10-15 minutes.

SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS: sporadically irritation (at strong longer exposition ).

In case of contact with eyes

Wash the eye with a plenty of water or physiological solution for 10-15 minutes from inner to outer eye corner. If the afflicted person is wearing contact lenses, they must be removed immediately. Call for a professional medical help promptly.

SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS: irritation, redness, eye-burn, lacrimation,

When swallowed

Have the victim drink approx. 2 dl of water , dose charcoal (aprox. 20 tabs crushed in water). Call for a professional medical help.

SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS: irritation, nausea, stomach pain, dizziness, headache

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

Powder or snow fire-extinguisher. In the case of a large-scale fire, use heavy foam with a polar foam maker, or a split water stream. Circumjacent containers should be cooled with a screen of water.

Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons

Direct water stream

Special exposure hazards from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products, resulting gases

While the substance burns, it produces toxic products. Vapours of this product makes explosive mixtures with the air.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

When fighting the fire in the dangerous area, you must use self-contained breathing apparatus and a protective suit against heat, eventually a protective chemical-resistant pressure suit.

Flammability class: IV

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Close the place of the accident, use the personal emergency equipment. Remove or switch off all sources of ignition. Ensure supply of fresh air in enclosed room. Measure a concentration of substance vapours in the air continuously.

Environmental precautions

Prevent the substance from leaking into the sewerage system, ground and surface water or into the soil. If the capacity of the leakage source is large, raise emergency alarm.

Method for cleaning

The leaked liquid should be enclosed and pumped into a container suitable for further processing or disposal. The remnants should be absorbed into a suitable porous material (sand, vapex, infusorial earth).

Disposal of the substance is governed by the valid waste handling legislation

Handling and storage


Keep regional regulation for flammable liquid handling (e.g. ČSN 65 0201); provide good vapour ventilation and, for the work place, exhaust, prevent the escape of substance vapours into the atmosphere, use working protective means, handle in a manner as to prevent spillage or escape, prevent contact of the substance with open flame, sparks or hot surfaces.


Keep regional regulation for flammable liquid storing (e.g. ČSN 65 0201); keep ventilating the storage room efficiently, use protective means, store in closed packaging or tanks only, do not store together with strong oxidising agents, keep reservoirs, tanks and receptacles dry and tightly closed, temperature and pressure normal without strong violent changes, do not exposure to sunshine.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls

Collective protection measures

Plant-wide and local ventilation, effective exhaust system, automation, hermetic sealing.

Individual protection measures

The staff must wear personal protection equipment (PPE) to protect their eyes, hands and skin. This equipment must be suitable for the nature of the activities they do. Wherever the technical means do not enable obeying the exposure limits determined for the working environment or ensuring that inhaling the substance does not affect a persons’ health, the staff must use also suitable protection of the respiratory system. If the staff are to use this equipment permanently while working, it is necessary to include safety breaks, if required by the nature of the PPE. All the PPE must be kept in good condition. Any polluted or damaged equipment must be replaced immediately.


· Respiratory protection: In case of short-time exposure or low concentration use the respirator with filter protecting from organic vapours, in case of high concentrations and long-term exposure use selfcontained breathing apparatus.

· Eye protection: Protective goggles (tight)

· Hand protection: Protective gloves (material: Nitrile-rubber or Butyl-rubber)

Skin protection: protective suit and footwear, unprotected skin must be treated with a protective cream before work.

· General safety and hygienic measures: Follow the rules of personal hygiene. Do not eat, drink or smoke while working! Wash your hands as well as any uncovered parts of your body well with water and soap, or treat them with suitable reparation lotion after finishing work or before eating or drinking.

Environmental exposure controls

Follow the valid legal regulations governing the protection of the air and water.

Disposal considerations

Methods of substance disposal

The substance must be handled in compliance with the valid legal regulations governing the disposal of waste as well as with other environmental regulations. Leaked product must be handled and then handed over to a person authorised to handle hazardous waste. It is recommended to dispose of this substance by making it a material that can be further used for energy generation purposes. Contact the producer for any additional information.
