First-aid measures

Fresh air, rest, half upright position. Get medical advice/attention if you feel unwell.
Skin contact
Remove contaminated clothes, rinse skin with water or shower. If skin irritation occurs: get medical advice/attention.
Eye contact
First rinse with plenty of water (remove lenses if possible). If eye irritation persists: get medical advice./attention.
Rinse mouth. Immediately call a doctor/physician if you feel unwell
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Respiratory irritation (nose and upper respiratory tract)
Eye and skin irritation.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Not applicable.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable Extinguishing media
Powder, water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.
Unsuitable Extinguishing media
Water jet, alcohol unstable foam.
Special hazards arising from the substance
May produce toxic fumes of carbon monoxide if burning.
Extreme generation of heat in the case of larger fires.
Advice for firefighters
Protective actions
In case of fire: keep containers cool by spraying with water.
Retain contaminated extinguishing water; do not allow entering into the sewage system.
In the case of larger fires: Cordon affected area
Special protective equipment
Self-contained respiratory protective device.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Information for non-emergency personnel
In the case of large quantities: Use filter respirator for organic vapours (filter type A).
Use personal protective equipment to avoid any contamination of skin, eyes and personal clothes. Remove potential sources of ignition. Do not smoke.
Assure sufficient ventilation
Information for emergency responders
If available, observe corporate hazard-control and emergency plans.
Environmental precautions
In the case of spills: Avoid penetration into the sewage canal, surface water and ground water.
In the case of accidental release: Do not discharge in surface water, sewers or soil
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Advice on spillage containment
Take up small amounts spilled product with an inert absorbent. Dispose of as hazardous waste.
Dam spilled substance in and suck carefully; recycle if possible. Collect remainder in inert absorbant and dispose of as hazardous waste. Wash away remainder with water.
Inappropriate containment or clean-up techniques
None known.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Recommendations for safe handling
Use only in well ventilated areas.
Only transfer into suited and resistant containers. Containers have to be properly labelled.
Keep away from heat / sparks / open flames / hot surfaces and do not smoke.
Above 60 ˚C: use in a closed system.
Advice on general occupational hygiene
The usual precautionary measures when handling chemicals have to be observed.
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas. Wash hands thoroughly with water and soap
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Protection against incompatible substances
Keep away from oxidants, strong acids and strong bases. The substance affects many synthetic materials; store only in original packing.
Keep container tightly closed.
Protect against heat and solar radiation. Recommended storage temperature: 20 ºC.
Protection against ambient influences
Store in a dark area.
Maintenance of the integrity of the substance
Not required.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Appropriate engineering controls
Ventilation and local exhaust.
Individual protection measures, such as personal protective
Personal protective
Safety goggles, gloves (butyl rubber, neoprene).
In case of insufficient local exhaust: filter respirator for organic vapours (filter type A).

Thermal hazards
Not applicable.

Environmental exposure controls
Direct polluted air of the local exhaust ventilation out of the plant in a manner in accordance with environmental regulations.

Stability and reactivity

Reduction reactions.
Chemical stability
Oxidizes slowly on exposure to air.
Decomposes slowly on exposure to light.
Discolours on exposure to light and resinifies
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Reacts violently with strong acids and strong bases with the possibility of fire and explosion (resinification).
At elevated temperatures, a risk for fire or explosion exists.
Conditions to avoid
Temperatures in storage > 40 °C. Contact with direct sunlight, heat sources and air. Static discharge and sources of ignition (open flames, warm surfaces, sparks).
Contact with combustible materials and plastics.
Incompatible materials
Strong acids or alkaline substances. Many plastics.
Hazardous decomposition products
Upon decomposition emits carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and/or low molecular weight hydrocarbons.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product disposal
Removal to an authorized waste incinerator for solvents or as chemical waste in accordance with local regulations. Do not discharge wastewater into sewer.
Packaging disposal
Uncleaned empty package have to be treated like the content. The labelling of uncleaned containers must not be removed.
