First-aid measures

Following eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water; occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.

Following inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Get medical attention if adverse health effects persist or are severe. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband.

Following skin contact: Flush contaminated skin with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Following ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Remove dentures if any. Remove patient to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Get medical attention.

Protection of first-aiders: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. It may be dangerous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, foam or dry extinguishing media.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: None known.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Hazardous thermal decomposition products: Decomposition products may include: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides

Advice for firefighters
Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves) conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
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 spilt material. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section “Exposure controls/personal protection”).

Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt 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).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a designated,labelled waste container. Avoid formation of dust. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Protective measures: Put on appropriate personal protective equipment (see Section “Exposure controls/personal protection”). Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands before eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Avoid breathing vapour or mist. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed and sealed ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
Use only with adequate local exhaust ventilation (LEV).

Individual protection measures
Hygiene measures: Avoid ingestion, inhalation, skin and eye contact. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene practice and any legal requirements. 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. Wash contaminated clothing before reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

Eye/face protection: safety glasses with side-shields

Skin protection
Hand protection: Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves conforming to EN374. Material: butyl, nitril or neoprene. Thickness: >0.7 mm. Breakthrough time: >8 hours.
Body protection: Personal protective equipment for the body should be selected based on the task being performed and the risks involved and should be approved by a specialist before handling this product.

Respiratory protection: When handling material that may generate dust, it is recommended to wear a half- mask respirator with filter conforming to standard EN 143, class P3 (against dust/particle), e.g. HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter.

Environmental exposure controls: Emissions from ventilation or work process equipment should be checked to ensure they comply with the requirements of environmental protection legislation. In some cases, fume scrubbers, filters or engineering modifications to the process equipment will be necessary to reduce emissions to acceptable levels.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: No reactivity hazards known under normal conditions of use.
Chemical Stability: Under storage at normal ambient temperatures, the product is stable.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: None.
Conditions to avoid: None.
Incompatible materials: Strong acid, strong bases and strong oxidizing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: None under normal storage conditions. Hazardous thermal decomposition products may include: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides

Disposal considerations

Product disposal: The generation of waste should be avoided or minimised wherever possible. Waste product residues should not be disposed of via the sewer but processed in a suitable effluent treatment plant. Dispose of surplus and non-recyclable products via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Disposal of this product, solutions and any by-products should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste disposal legislation and any regional local authority requirements.
Packaging disposal: Waste packaging should be recycled. Incineration or landfill should only be considered when recycling is not feasible. This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues.
