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.
