First-aid measures

GENERAL: Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If you feel unwell, seek medical advice (show label where possible).
INHALATION: Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Allow victim to breathe fresh air. Allow the victim to rest. Get medical attantion.
SKIN CONTACT: Remove affected clothing and wash all exposed skin area with mild soap and water. Discard contaminated leather products (shoes). Get medicay attention if symptoms persist.
EYE CONTACT: Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Obtain medical attention if pain, blinking or redness persists.
INGESTION: Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

SUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide, Water spray, Sand.
UNSUITABLE EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread the fire.
SPECIFIC HAZARDS ARISING FROM THE CHEMICAL: Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
SPECIAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT & PRECAUTIONS FOR FIREFIGHTERS: Firefighters must use standard protective equipment including flame retardant coat, helmet with face shield, gloves, rubber boots, and in enclosed spaces. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus with a full facepiece operated in the positive pressure demand mode when fighting fires.
FIRE FIGHTING EQUIPMENT/INSTRUCTIONS: In case of fire and/or hazard exposion do not breathe fumes. Use standard firefighting procedures and consider the hazards of other involved materials. Move containers from fire area if you can do so without risk. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Ventilate closed spaces before entering them. Keep run-off water out of sewers and water sources. Dike for water control.
SPECIFIC METHODS: Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
GENERAL FIRE HAZARDS: Static charges generated by empty package in or near flammable vapor may cause flash fire.

Accidental release measures

PERSONAL PRECAUTIONS, PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT & EMERGENCY PROCEDURES: Keep unnecessary personnel away. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Avoid contact with skin or inhalation of spillage, dust or vapor. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Ventilate closed spaces before entering.
METHODS AND MATERIALS FOR CLEANING UP: Eliminate all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Absorb with inert absorbent such as dry clay, sand or diatomaceous earth, commercial sorbents, or recover using pumps. The product is immiscible with water and will spread on the water surface. LARGE SPILLS: Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Dike the spilled material, where this is possible. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Prevent product from entering drains. Do not allow material to contaminate ground water system. Absorb in vermiculite, dry sand or earth and place into containers. SMALL SPILLS: Wipe up with absorbent material (e.g. cloth, fleece). Clean surface thoroughly to remove residual contamination. Never return spills in original containers for re-use. This material and its container must be disposed of as hazardous waste.
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not contaminate water. Avoid release to the environment. Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Contact local authorities in case of spillage to drain/aquatic environment.

Handling and storage

PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING: Do not handle or store near an open flame, heat or other sources of ignition. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded. Avoid breathing vapor. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Avoid prolonged exposure. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Minimise number of staff exposred. Avoid contact with contaminated tools or equipment. Train staff on good practise.

CONDITIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE, INCLUDING ANY COMPATIBILITIES: Keep container closed. Handle containers with care. Open slowly in order to control possible pressure release. Store in a cool, well-ventilated area.

Exposure controls / personal protection

APPROPRIATE ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use equipment to stay below exposure limits.
INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION MEASURES, SUCH AS PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Eye/face protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields (or goggles or faceshield). Skin/hand protection: Chemical resistant gloves. Respiratory protection: Respiratory protection not required. If ventilation is insufficient, suitable respiratory protection must be provided. Thermal hazards: Wear appropriate thermal protective clothing, when necessary.
GENERAL HYGIENE CONSIDERATIONS: Always observe good personal hygiene measures, such as washing after handling the material and before eating, drinking, using the bathroom and/or smoking. Routinely wash work clothing and protective equipment to remove contaminants.

Stability and reactivity

REACTIVITY: The product is stable and non-reactive under normal conditions of use, storage and transport.
CHEMICAL STABILITY: Material is stable under normal conditions.
POSSIBILITY OF HAZARDOUS REACTIONS: No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid temperatures exceeding the flash-point. Contact with incompatible materials.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Strong oxidizing agents, strong bases.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Hazardous decompositon products formed under fire conditions.

Disposal considerations

DISPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS: Do not discharge into drains, water courses or onto the ground. Do not allow this material to drain into sewers/water supplies. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with chemical or used containers. Dispose of contents/container in accordance with local/regional/national/international regulations.
