First-aid measures

General Advice:
• Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
• Call a physician immediately

If inhaled:
• Move to fresh air.
• If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration.

In case of skin contact:
• Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water while removing all contaminated clothes and shoes.
• Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
• Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.

In case of eye contact:
• Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
• Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes.
• If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/ attention.

If swallowed:
• Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water.
• Do NOT induce vomiting.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Lachrymation

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
• Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media:
• Alcohol-resistant foam
• carbon dioxide (CO2)
• dry chemical
• water spray

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
• water Spray jet

Specific Hazards arising from the substance or chemical:
Specific hazards during fire fighting:
• Take precautionary measures against static discharges

Hazardous combustion products
• Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
• Carbon dioxide (CO2)
• Carbon monoxide (CO)

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
• Wear an approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus in addition to standard fire fighting gear.

Further information
• Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
• Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
• Evacuate personnel to safe areas.
• Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
• Remove all sources of ignition.
• Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.

Environmental precautions:
• Prevent product from entering drains.
• Prevent further leakage or spillage.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
• Contain spillage, soak up with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and transfer to a container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13).
• After cleaning, flush away traces with water.
• Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Advice on safe handling
• Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.
• Do not get on skin or clothing.
• Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing.
• Do not swallow.
• Ensure adequate ventilation.
• Wash thoroughly after handling.
• Keep away from fire (No Smoking).
• Keep away from fire, sparks and heated surfaces.
• Do not use sparking tools.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
• Use only in area provided with appropriate exhaust ventilation.

Hygiene measures
• Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Requirements for storage areas and containers
• Keep container closed when not in use. Store locked up.

Specific end use(s)
• Chemical intermediate

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Derived No Effect Level (DNEL) according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006:
End Use - Routes of exposure - Potential health effects - Value
Workers - Inhalation - Long-term systemic effects - 13.23 mg/m3
Workers - Dermal - Long-term systemic effects - 1.876 mg/kg bw/day
General Population - Inhalation - Long-term systemic effects - 1.985 mg/m3
General Population - Dermal - Long-term systemic effects - 0.67 mg/kg bw/day
General Population - Oral - Long-term systemic effects - 0.67 mg/kg bw/day

Predicted No Effect Concentration (PNEC) according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006:
Environmental Compartment - Value
Fresh water - 0.5 mg/L
Fresh water sediment - 2.17 mg/kg dw
Marine water - 0.05 mg/L
Marine water sediment - 0.217 mg/kg dw
Soil - 0.14 mg/kg dw
Sewage treatment plant - 10 mg/L

Exposure controls
Engineering measures:
• Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions.
• Enhanced general ventilation (typically 5 - 10 air changes per hour) should be used if no Local Exhaust Ventilation is in place and there is potential for exposure.
• If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits.
• If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Personal Protective Equipment:
Eye protection:
• Safety glasses with side-shields
• Goggles
• Face-shield

Hand protection remarks:
• Rubber gloves Neoprene gloves
• The data about break through time/strength of material are standard values! The exact break through time/strength of material has to be obtained from the producer of the protective glove.

Skin and body protection:
• Complete suit protecting against chemicals

Respiratory protection:
• Use respiratory protection unless adequate local exhaust ventilation is provided or exposure assessment demonstrates that exposures are within recommended exposure guidelines.

Protective measures:
• Remove respiratory and skin/eye protection only after vapors have been cleared from the area.
• Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place.
• Use personal protective equipment as required.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity - Chemical Stability:
• Stable under normal conditions
• Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions

Conditions to Avoid:
• Heat, flames and sparks

Incompatible materials to avoid:
• Bases
• Strong acids and oxidizing agents

Hazardous Decomposition Products:
• Carbon dioxide (CO2)
• Carbon monoxide
• Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
• In accordance with local and national regulations.
• Waste must be classified and labelled prior to recycling or disposal.

Contaminated Packaging:
• Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste han-dling site for recycling or disposal.
