First-aid measures

INHALATION: Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest.  If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest

occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel.  Obtain medical attention if symptoms occur. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately.  Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

INGESTION: No special measures required.

SKIN CONTACT: No special measures required.

EYE CONTACT:  Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses.Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Fire-fighting measures

In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2.   No specific fire or explosion hazard.   Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.   Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Hazard of slipping on spilt product.

Environmental precautions:

Avoid dispersal of spilled material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Large spill:  Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container.  Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Small spill:

Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

No special measures required. Use original container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

No special ventilation requirements. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control worker exposure to airborne contaminants.  Respiratory protection : Recommended: Dust-protection mask  Hand protection : Recommended: gloves  Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists, gases or dusts.  Recommended: safety glasses with side-shields Eye protection : Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling this product.

Skin protection : Hygiene measures : Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Appropriate techniques should be used to remove potentially contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

The product is stable.  Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous decomposition products should not be produced.

Disposal considerations

Examine possibilities for re-utilisation. Product residues and uncleaned empty containers should be packaged, sealed, labelled, and disposed of or recycled according to relevant national and local regulations. Where large quantities are concerned, consult the supplier. When uncleaned empty containers are passed on, the recipient must be warned of any possible hazard that may be caused by residues. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate

code according to the European Waste List (EWL) should be used. It is among the tasks of the polluter to assign the waste to waste codes specific to industrial sectors and processes according to the European Waste List (EWL).
