First-aid measures

General advice:

Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. If inhaled:

Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air. Immediately administer a corticosteroid from a

controlled/metered dose inhaler.

On skin contact:

Wipe dry. 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:

Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons: water

Specific hazards: hydrogen chloride

The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released if the product is involved in a fire.

Special protective equipment: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information: Contaminated extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Breathing protection required.

Environmental precautions: Due to the pH-value of the product, neutralization is generally required before discharging sewage into treatment plants.

Methods for cleaning up or taking up: For large amounts: Sweep/shovel up. Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

For residues: Rinse away with water. Avoid raising dust.

Handling and storage

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Keep container tightly sealed. Before opening venting of container is recommended; beware of escaping gases and vapours. Avoid dust formation. Breathing must be protected when large quantities are decanted without local exhaust ventilation. When dissolving, add product slowly to water with constant stirring.

Protection against fire and explosion: The substance/product is non-combustible.

Storage: Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep container dry.

Storage stability: Product is hygroscopic. Improper storage may result in pressure build up in the drums.

Avoid dust formation. Avoid inhalation of the product.

In case of insufficient ventilation: Wear a suitable respiratory protection with adequate effectiveness.

For preparing aqueous solutions: Place water and add the substance in small quantities with constant stirring to prevent local overheating.

Stability and reactivity

Thermal decomposition: No reactions if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.

Substances to avoid: water

Hazardous reactions:

Reacts violently with water. Develops hydrochloric acid (HCl) on contact with water. The formation of gaseous decomposition products builds up pressure in tightly closed containers.

Hazardous decomposition products: hydrogen chloride

The substances/substance groups mentioned are formed by hydrolysis.

Disposal considerations

Check for possible recycling. Contact waste centre regarding recycling.

Contaminated packaging:

Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
