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.

It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-tomouth

resuscitation. Get medical attention if adverse health effects

persist or are severe. 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: Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air.

Keep person warm and at rest. If material has been swallowed and

the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to

drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be

dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by

medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low

so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Get medical attention if

adverse health effects persist or are severe. Never give anything by

mouth to an unconscious person. 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.

Skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove

contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to rinse for at least 10

minutes. Get medical attention. In the event of any complaints or

symptoms, avoid further exposure. Wash clothing before reuse.

Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

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.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire fighting measures

Extinguishing media: Use dry chemical, CO2, water spray (fog) or foam.

Not suitable: Do not use water jet.

Special exposure hazards: Flammable liquid. In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase

will occur and the container may burst, with the risk of a subsequent

explosion. Runoff to sewer may create 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. Move containers from

fire area if this can be done without risk. Use water spray to keep

fire-exposed containers cool. This material is harmful to aquatic

organisms. Fire water contaminated with this material must be

contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway,

sewer or drain.

Hazardous combustion products: Decomposition products may include the following materials:

carbon oxides, halogenated compounds

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operating in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without

suitable training. Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary

and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk

through spilled material. Shut off all ignition sources. No flares,

smoking or flames in hazard area. Avoid breathing vapor or mist.

Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective

equipment

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). Harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.

Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent

entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas.

Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent

material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and

place in container for disposal according to local regulations.

Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment.

Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated

absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilled

product.

Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with

water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry

material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Use

spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Dispose of via a

licensed waste disposal contractor.

Handling and storage

Handling: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where

this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should

wash hands and face before eating, drinking and smoking. Persons

with a history of skin sensitization problems should not be employed

in any process in which this product is used. Do not get in eyes or

on skin or clothing. Do not breathe vapor or mist. Do not ingest. Use

only with adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when

ventilation is inadequate. Do not enter storage areas and confined

spaces unless adequately ventilated. Keep in the original container

or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept

tightly closed when not in use. Store and use away from heat,

sparks, open flame or any other ignition source. Use explosionproof

electrical (ventilating, lighting and material handling)

equipment. Use non-sparking tools. Take precautionary measures

against electrostatic discharges. To avoid fire or explosion,

dissipate static electricity during transfer by grounding and bonding

containers and equipment before transferring material. Empty

containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse empty containers.

Storage: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in a segregated

and approved area. Store in original container protected from direct

sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from

incompatible materials and food and drink.

Eliminate all ignition sources. Separate from oxidizing materials.

Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use.

Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and

kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabeled

containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental

contamination.

measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective

equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN

689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to

chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for

the determination of hazardous substances.

Exposure controls:

Occupational exposure controls: Use only with adequate ventilation. Use process enclosures, local

exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker

exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or

statutory limits. The engineering controls also need to keep gas,

vapor or dust concentrations below any lower explosive limits. Use

explosion-proof ventilation equipment.

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.

Respiratory protection: Use a properly fitted, air-purifying or air-fed respirator complying

with an approved standard if a risk assessment indicates this is

necessary. Respirator selection must be based on known or

anticipated exposure levels, the hazards of the product and the safe

working limits of the selected respirator.

Recommended: Combination filter, e.g. DIN 3181 ABEK if product

forms vapours.

Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves or gauntlets complying with

an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling

chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.

After contamination with product change the gloves immediately

and dispose of them according to relevant national and local
