First-aid measures

General advice:
First aid personnel should pay attention to their own safety. Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Immediately wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open,
consult an eye specialist.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, seek medical attention.
Note to physician:
Treatment: Symptomatic treatment (decontamination, vital functions).

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, carbon dioxide, dry extinguishing media, foam
Special protective equipment:
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information:
Keep containers cool by spraying with water if exposed to fire. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated
extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Use breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/aerosol.
Environmental precautions:
Do not discharge into drains/surface waters/groundwater.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For small amounts: Pick up with suitable absorbent material. After taking up material in containers,
cover immediately with water layer.
For large amounts: Dike spillage. Allow to solidify and sweep/shovel up.
Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Processing machines must be fitted with local exhaust ventilation. Ensure that there is no crystallized
product in the container before use.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should
be kept handy. Risk of self-ignition when a large surface area is produced due to fine dispersion.
Segregate from oxidants.
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed and dry; store in a cool place.
Protect from air. Protect from the effects of light.
Protect from temperatures above: 60 °C
Damage by exceeding the maximum temperature is not reversible.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Components with workplace control parameters
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Particle filter with medium efficiency for solid
and liquid particles (e.g. EN 143 or 149, Type P2 or FFP2)
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting
boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of
General safety and hygiene measures:
Under no circumstances should the product come into contact with the skin of pregnant women or be
inhaled by them. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended. Handle in accordance with good
industrial hygiene and safety practice.

Stability and reactivity

Substances to avoid:
oxidizing agents
Hazardous reactions:
When finely distributed, self-ignition is possible.
Hazardous decomposition products:
acetic acid

Disposal considerations

Observe national and local legal requirements.
