First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation:
Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. If breathing is difficult or respiratory irritation develops, get medical attention.
Skin Contact:
Wipe away excess material with a dry towel, then wash with soap and water for several minutes. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. If a rash or skin irritation occurs, contact a physician.
Eye Contact:
Flush with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, lifting eyelids for maximum effectiveness. Get medical attention if irritation develops or persists.
Ingestion:
If swallowed, rinse mouth with water. Observe victim for 24 hours. Do NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to prevent aspiration. If large amounts were ingested, consult a physician/poison control center. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Potential health symptoms and effects
Inhalation:
Mists may cause irritation of the respiratory tract.
Skin:
May cause mild skin irritation upon prolonged or repeated contact.
Eyes:
May cause eye irritation.
Ingestion:
May cause gastrointestinal distress.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Water jet.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Closed containers may explode due to the buildup of pressure when exposed to extreme heat. Under fire conditions, product may undergo thermal decomposition and emit toxic fumes of COx.
Advice for firefighters
Full protective equipment including self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing should be used. Water may be used to cool containers to prevent pressure buildup and possible rupture when exposed to extreme heat. If possible, water contaminated by this material should be contained and prevented from being discharged to any waterway, sewer, or drain to avoid environmental contamination.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear protective gloves, eye protection, and face protection. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Environmental precautions
Avoid dispersal of spilled material or runoff and prevent contact with soil and entry into drains, sewers, and waterways.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Cover drains and contain spill. Take up with inert absorbent material (e.g. vermiculite, general purpose binder). Shovel or sweep up product and place into an approved container for proper disposal. Wash walking surfaces with detergent and water to reduce slipping hazard. Dispose of material in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wear protective gloves, eye protection, and face protection. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Wash contaminated clothing and shoes before reuse.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Store in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area away from incompatible materials (see Section 10.5). Keep container tightly closed. Protect containers from physical damage. Containers may be hazardous when empty as they contain product residues.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering Measures:
Safety measures and appropriate working conditions should be given priority, with use of personal protective equipment a secondary measure. Use adequate ventilation to reduce the exposure of mists or vapors. Facility should be equipped with an eyewash station and safety shower.
Hygiene Measures:
Avoid contact with eyes or skin. Wash hands thoroughly after use and before eating, drinking or bathroom use.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
Hand Protection:
Wear gloves recommended by glove supplier as impervious to materials in Section 3.
Eye Protection:
Wear protective goggles or safety glasses with side shields and/or full face shield.
Skin Protection:
Wear protective clothing.
Respiratory Protection:
If ventilation is limited
