First-aid measures

General advice: In case of persistent discomfort or any symptoms develops, seek medical advice. Show the safety data sheet or label/ packaging to a person providing first aid.

Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air. If any symptoms persists, get medical attention.
Contact with skin: Take off contaminated clothing and wash before re-use. Wash skin thoroughly with plenty of water.
Contact with eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes holding the eyelids open. Protect clean eye. Remove contact lenses if present.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If any symptoms appear, seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media: dry chemical powder, sand.
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media: carbon dioxide, water jets.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Most fire-fighting foams react with inorganic cyanide emitting toxic and corrosive fumes. Hydrogen cyanide can be emitted when carbon dioxide, water jets or water mist is used.

Advice for firefighters:
Follow the procedures adequate for chemicals fire extinguishing. Prevent from entering contaminated water into sewers or other bodies of water. Dispose of waste water in compliance with current legislation. People should be properly trained and equipped with proper clothing and safety equipment (self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing). Avoid electrostatic discharge.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Inform relevant authorities. Avoid contact with the product. Avoid dust generation. Provide fresh air when used indoors. Use adequate personal protective equipment (protective clothing, protective glasses).

Environmental precautions:
Stop or limit the leakage. Inform relevant authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Stop the leakage. Collect mechanically into a closed, labelled container. Dispose of waste in compliance with current legislation.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Keep standart precautions while handling chemicals. Never eat, drink or smoke during use. Wash hands and face before and after work. Use adequate personal protective equipment.Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Take off contaminated clothing and wash before re-use.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep containers tightly closed. Store in a cool, dry and well ventilated place. Store away from direct sunlight.
