First-aid measures

General advice: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.

Inhalation of vapours due to thermal decomposition : Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of problems : Consult a physician.

Skin contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with soap and water.

Eye contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion: Do NOT induce vomiting. In case of problems : Consult a doctor.

Protection of first-aiders: If entering a saturated atmosphere, wear a self contained breathing apparatus.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry chemical

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Thermal decomposition giving toxic products : Benzene, Toluene

Precautions for fire-fighters:

Specific methods: Containers/tanks should be cooled with water spray. Ensure a system for the rapid emptying of containers.

In case of fire nearby, remove exposed containers.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters:

Fire fighters and others who may be exposed to products of combustion should wear full fire fighting turn out gear (full Bunker Gear) and self-contained breathing apparatus. Fire fighting equipment should be thoroughly decontaminated after use.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours.  In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Environmental precautions: Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material. sand, vermiculite, perlite.

After cleaning, flush away traces with water. recover waste water for later processing.

Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Technical measures/Precautions:

Storage and handling precautions applicable to products: Liquid. Irritant. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at machinery. Provide showers, eye-baths. Provide self-contained breathing apparatus nearby.

Safe handling advice: Clean up puddles of product immediately. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable equipment. Keep away of nake flames.

Hygiene measures : Avoid contact with the skin and the eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapours. When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide impermeable floor.

Incompatible products: Oxidizing agents

Packaging material:  Recommended: Ordinary steel
