General advice:
First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing. Move out of dangerous area. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Keep warm and in a quiet place.

If inhaled:
Provide fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Keep the victim calm and in a semi-upright position. Call a physician immediately.

In case of skin contact:
Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.

In case of eye contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.

If swallowed:
Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Symptoms:
Headache, Nausea, Vomiting, Tiredness, Drowsiness, Dizziness, Unconsciousness

Risks:
If swallowed, severe burns in the oral cavity and throat as well as danger of perforation of the digestive tract and stomach.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
Treatment:
Treat symptomatically. For specialist advice physicians should contact the Poisons Information Service.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media:
Dry extinguishing media based on NaCl or pulverized lime-stone.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Alcohol-resistant foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Specific hazards during fire-fighting:
Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Flash back possible over considerable distance. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions: Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Metal oxides, Hydrogen chloride.

Advice for firefighters:
Special protective equipment for firefighters:
Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.

Further information:
Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Be aware of a dangerous reaction with water, if the container is ruptured. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Personal precautions:
Remove all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.

Environmental precautions :
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Avoid subsoil penetration.

Methods for cleaning up:
Never allow contact with water. Cover spilled material with limestone powder. Pick up and transfer to properly labelled containers. Non-sparking tools should be used. Adequate disposal

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Advice on safe handling:
Handle under inert gas. Use product only in closed system. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Provide exhaust ventilation close to floor level. Never allow water to come into contact with the product. Avoid formation of aerosol. Wear personal protective equipment. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
In general, emissions are controlled and prevented by imple-menting an appropriate management system, including regu-lar informing and training workers.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors. Flash back possible over considerable distance.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Use explosion-proof equipment.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Keep under inert gas. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat. Protect from direct sunlight.
Protect from moisture. Protect from frost. Avoid contact with air/oxygen.

Advice on common storage:
Never allow product to get in contact with water during stor-age. Incompatible with oxidizing agents, acids, alcohols and other protic substances.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls:
Engineering measures:
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Use product only in closed system. Provide exhaust ventilation close to floor level. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Electrical equipment should be protected to the appropriate standard.

Personal protective equipment:
Respiratory protection:
In case of insufficient ventilation wear suitable respiratory equipment. For short-time or low exposures, use breathing apparatus with a filter. Recommended Filter type: A-P2. For intensive or prolonged exposure, use a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Hand protection:
Glove material: Wear suitable gloves. Protective gloves complying with EN 374. Glove material: Flame retardant gloves. Protective gloves complying with EN 659. The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other. The exact break through time can be obtained from the pro-tective glove producer and this has to be observed. Protective gloves have to be replaced at the first sign of deterioration.

Eye protection:
Eye protection (EN 166). Tightly fitting safety goggles.

Skin and body protection:
Flame retardant, antistatic and chemical resistant protective clothing.

Hygiene measures:
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Protective measures:
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and safety shower. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
