First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice:
Immediate medical attention is required
Move out of dangerous area
Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance
Symptoms of poisoning may appear several hours later

If inhaled:
If breathed in, move person into fresh air
Call a physician or poison control centre immediately
Remove to fresh air
Keep patient warm and at rest
If unconscious place in recovery position and seek medical advice
Keep respiratory tract clear

In case of skin contact:
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately
Rinse immediately with plenty of water
Immediate medical treatment is necessary as untreated wounds from corrosion of the skin heal slowly and with difficulty

In case of eye contact:
Rinse with plenty of water
Get medical attention immediately. Continue to rinse during transport
Remove contact lenses
Protect unharmed eye
Keep eye wide open while rinsing
Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tissue damage and blindness

If swallowed:
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person
Take victim immediately to hospital
Do not induce vomiting! May cause chemical burns in mouth and throat

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
The symptoms and effects are as expected from the hazards as shown in Hazards Identification on the SDS. No specific product related symptoms are known.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treat symptomatically

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
In case of fire: Use vermiculite, dry chemical powder or dry sand for extinction

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting / Specific hazards arising from the chemical:
CAUTION: reignition may occur
Waterspray may only be used by experienced fire fighters
Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses

Combustion products:
Fire will produce smoke containing hazardous combustion products (see Stability and Reactivity)

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit

Further information:
Use water spray to cool unopened containers
Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations
After fire has been extinguished or has been allowed to burn out completely, wait CONSIDERABLE TIME (until smoke is no longer observed)

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
Use personal protective equipment.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Ignition will occur.
Allow controlled hydrolysis.
Stop leak if safe to do so.
Beware of vapours accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapours can accumulate in low areas.

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions:
Prevent product from entering drains.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up / Methods for containment:
Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13).
Ensure that the product is completely non-reactive before cleaning up.
