First-aid measures

General information:
In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical advice (show label or SDS where

After inhalation
Provide fresh air.
After contact with the skin
Wash with plenty of water or water and soap. In the event of a visible skin change or other
complaints, seek medical advice (show label or SDS where possible).

After contact with the eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical advice in case of continuous irritation.

After swallowing
Give several small portions of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
water mist , extinguishing powder , alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , sand .

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
water spray , water jet .

Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, combustion products,
resulting gases
Hazardous decomposition products: alcohols . Do not allow extinguishing water to enter
sewerage, the soil or inshore waters.

Special protective equipment for fire fighting
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Wear personal protection equipment (see section Exposure controls / personal protection ). Keep unprotected persons away. Avoid
contact with eyes and skin. Avoid inhaling mists and vapours. If material is released indicate
risk of slipping.

Environmental precautions
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Contain any fluid
that runs out using suitable material (e.g. earth). Retain contaminated water/extinguishing
water. Dispose of in prescribed marked containers.

Methods for cleaning up
Do not flush away with water. For small amounts: Absorb with a liquid binding material such as
diatomaceous earth and dispose of according to local/state/federal regulations. Contain larger
amounts and pump up into suitable containers. Clean any slippery coating that remains using a
detergent / soap solution or another biodegradable cleaner. Exhaust vapours.

Further information:
Eliminate all sources of ignition.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance with section stability and reactivity.
Spilled substance increases risk of slipping.

Precautions against fire and explosion:
Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process
vessels, including partial, empty and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed
spaces. Keep away from sources of ignition and do not smoke. Take precautionary measures
against electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.

Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
none known
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
not applicable

Further information for storage:
Protect against moisture. Keep container tightly closed and store in a cool, well ventilated place.
