First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in recovery position
and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid personnel should pay
attention to their own safety.

If inhaled:
Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a controlled/metered dose inhaler. Keep patient calm,
remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.

On skin contact:
Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings, consult a skin specialist.

On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.

On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, foam, dry powder

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Breathing protection if gases/vapours are formed. Suitable respiratory protection for lower
concentrations or short-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point
>65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

Hand protection:
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
chloroprene rubber (CR) - 0.5 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,
corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case
of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with eyes.
Avoid inhalation of dusts/mists/vapours.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No hazardous reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Formation of flammable gases:
Remarks: Forms no flammable gases in the presence of water.

Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
