First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:
Pay attention to self-protection.
Remove victims from hazardous area.
Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.
Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.
Do not leave victims unattended.
If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.

Inhalation:
Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated.
Move victims into fresh air.
With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.
If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Skin contact:
Wash off affected area immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If symptoms persist, consult a physician for treatment.

Eye contact:
With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.
Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.

Ingestion:
Rinse mouth.
Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.
Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms:
Irritation of skin and mucous membranes.

Hazards:
Irritant effects.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
The initial focus is only on the local action, possibly characterized by a progressive tissue irritation.
In the eye, irritating liquids cause, depending on the intensity of exposure, irritation of the conjunctiva and, in exceptional cases, damage to the cornea.
There is a danger of blindness if corneas are damaged!
Superficial irritations and only infrequent damage with ulcerations develop on the skin.
An irritation of the mucous membranes may develop and lead to coughing after inhalation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
- Water spray
- Foam
- CO2
- Dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Alkaline agent.
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
In the case of fire, the following hazardous smoke fumes may be produced:
- Carbon monoxide
- Carbon dioxide
- Organic products of decomposition
- Sulphur oxides.

Advice for firefighters:
Contaminated extinguishing water must be treated at a suitable disposal plant in accordance with waste management laws.
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
In case of fire, remove the endangered containers and bring to a safe place, if this can be done safely.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.
Pay attention to self-protection.
Keep out unprotected persons.
In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Keep unauthorized persons away.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Environmental precautions:
Observe regulations on prevention of water pollution (check, dam up, cover up).
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil, stretches of water, drainage systems, surface water.
If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Take up mechanically or with an absorbent material.
Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
Pack and label wastes like the pure substance.
Do not detach label from the delivery containers prior to disposal.
Disposal according to local authority regulations.

Reference to other sections:
Wear personal protective equipment; see exposure controls/personal protection.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Use only trained personnel.
Use permissible in closed systems only.
Handle and transfer product in closed systems only (gas displacement device).
Ensure that apparatus and pipelines are free from leaks.
Do not ventilate into the open.
Suitable loading and unloading device required.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.

Storage:
Store in the original receptacle, keeping this tightly sealed, under cool and dry conditions.
Ensure there is good room ventilation.
Observe prohibition against storing together!

Further information:
Protect from sunlight, warmth and heat.
In order to ensure due transportation, make certain that stacks are of the correct height, containers are securely fastened so as not to fall off, and labelled according to the regulations.
In the event of internal transportation, already-opened containers are to be kept closed in order to avoid spillage.

German storage class:
3 - Flammable Liquids.
