First-aid measures

Ingestion:
Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention.

Inhalation:
Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed.

Skin Contact:
Wash with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs, get medical attention.

Eye contact:
Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses.

Treatment:
Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards:
No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

Suitable extinguishing media:
CO2, dry chemical, foam, water spray, water fog.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Not determined.

Specific hazards arising from the chemical:
Container may rupture on heating. Water or foam may cause frothing. Avoid solid streams of water. Use water spray.
Thermal decomposition or combustion may liberate carbon oxides and other toxic gases or vapors.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Ventilate area if spilled in confined space or other poorly ventilated areas. Personal Protective Equipment must be worn, see Personal Protection Section for PPE recommendations.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Dike far ahead of larger spill for later recovery and disposal. Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. Wash area with soap and water. Spilled liquid and dried film are slippery. Use care to avoid falls.

Environmental Precautions:
Avoid release to the environment. Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Environmental manager must be informed of all major spillages. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Avoid breathing mists or vapors. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Stir well before use. Keep containers closed when not in use. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Store away from incompatible materials (Strong oxidizing agents). Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers. Do not freeze.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Appropriate engineering controls:
Use material in well ventilated area only. Adequate ventilation should be provided so that exposure limits are not exceeded. Mechanical ventilation or local exhaust ventilation may be required.

Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment

Hygiene measures:
Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing to remove contaminants. Discard contaminated footwear that cannot be cleaned.

General information:
Use personal protective equipment as required.

Eye/face protection:
If contact is likely, safety glasses with side shields are recommended.

Hand Protection:
Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier. Use good industrial hygiene practices to avoid skin contact. If contact with the material may occur wear chemically protective gloves.

Feet Protection: Wear boots as necessary to minimize contact.

Body protection: Wear coveralls or apron to minimize contact.

Respiratory Protection:
Consult with an industrial hygienist to determine the appropriate respiratory protection for your specific use of this material. A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator. Under normal use conditions, respirator is not usually required. Use appropriate respiratory protection if exposure to dust particles, mist or vapors is likely. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Stability and reactivity

Chemical Stability:
Material is stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:
Do not expose to excessive heat, ignition sources, or oxidizing materials.

Incompatible Materials:
Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous Decomposition Products:
No hazardous decomposition products will occur under normal conditions of use. Thermal decomposition or combustion may liberate carbon oxides and other toxic gases or vapors.

Disposal considerations

Disposal instructions:
Treatment, storage, transportation, and disposal must be in accordance with applicable Federal, State/Provincial, and Local regulations.
Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.

Contaminated Packaging:
Container packaging may exhibit hazards.
