First-aid measures

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. Move exposed person to fresh air. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should
wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. 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-to-mouth resuscitation. 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. In case of inhalation of decomposition products in a fire, symptoms may be delayed. The exposed person may
need to be kept under medical surveillance for 48 hours. In the event of any complaints or symptoms, avoid further exposure.
Ingestion: Get medical attention. Ensure that the patient drinks water, possibly with the addition of activated charcoal. Do not induce vomiting
unless directed to do so by medical personnel.
Skin contact: Get medical attention. Wash the skin immediately with plenty of soap and water; cleaning immediately with polyethyleneglycol 400
and washing subsequently with plenty of soap and water would be more effective. In case of blueness of lips, skin or nails (cyanosis)
let the person breathe oxygen. No physical exertion. No consumption of alcohol after product contact.
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.
Notes to physican: Elementary aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment and depending on the formation of methaemoglobin: intravenous
administration of toluidine blue or other redox dyes according to dosage specifications plus ascorbic acid.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: In case of fire, use water spray (fog), foam, dry chemical or CO2.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet.
Special exposure hazards: In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst. 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. This material is very toxic 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, nitrogen oxides, halogenated compounds, hydrogen cyanide.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated 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 spilt material. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.
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). Very toxic to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term
adverse effects in the aquatic environment.
Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Use spark-proof tools and explosionproof equipment. Collect spillage. Absorb with an inert material and place in an appropriate waste disposal container. Do not firmly seal waste containers (risk of CO2 generation!). Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Carefully decompose residues with an aqueous ammonia solution. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.
Small spill : Stop leak if without risk. Use spark-proof tools and explosion-proof equipment. Take up with a moist, liquid-binding material (e.g. sand,
sawdust or chemical binder based on hydrated calcium silicate) and treat carefully with diluted ammonia solution. Do not firmly seal waste containers (risk of CO2 generation!). Once the reaction is fully complete, pass on to disposal facilities. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS

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


Stability and reactivity

Stability: Hazardous polymerization may occur under certain conditions of storage or use.
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous reactions or instability may occur under certain conditions of storage or use.
Conditions to avoid: Reactive with water, alcohols, acids, alkalis and amines. With water (in a closed container), pressure will increase and create a risk of bursting. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind or expose containers to heat or sources of ignition.
Hazardous decomposition products: Under normal conditions of storage and use, hazardous decomposition products should not be produced.

Disposal considerations

Methods of disposal : Examine possibilities for re-utilisation. Product residues and uncleaned empty containers should be packaged, sealed, labelled, and disposed of or recycled according to relevant national and local regulations. Where large quantities are concerned, consult the supplier. When uncleaned empty containers are passed on, the recipient must be warned of any possible hazard that may be caused by residues. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste List (EWL) should be used. It is among the tasks of the polluter to assign the waste to waste codes specific to industrial sectors and processes according to the European Waste List (EWL).
