First-aid measures

Eye contact
- rinse immediately with tap water for at least 20 minutes - open eyelids forcibly
- in any case ophthalmological follow-up care

Skin contact
- remove immediately contaminated clothes, wash affected skin with water and soap
- do not use any solvents

Inhalation
- remove the casualty to fresh air
- get medical treatment immediately
- avoid mouth to mouth artificial respiration, use respiration equipment

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
no information available

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed - Note to physician:
- treat symptomatically
- in case of strong exposure betamimetics and topical and/or systemic steroids as needed; subsequent follow-up because of possible latency of pulmonary symptoms

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
- water spray jet, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide

Unsuitable extinguishing media
- full water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
- may form potentially explosive mixtures with air
- heating of container(s) will cause pressure rise with risk of bursting and subsequent explosion
- Vapours may be invisible and they are heavier than air. They spread on the soil and could penetrate into the sewerage system and into cellars.
- gives off toxic and irritant fumes, also when burning

Advice for firefighters:
Protection of fire-fighters
- precipitate gases/vapours/mists with water spray
- chemical incident emergency response unit with full protective equipment
- use self-contained breathing apparatus
- limit the action force in the danger area

Special method of fire-fighting
- cool endangered containers with water spray
- extinguish with foam - dry powder, subsequently secure with foam blanket
- for reasons of environmental protection hold the extinguishing agent back

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
- do not use tools which produce sparks, make use of explosion proof equipment
- warn people to leave and not to re-enter basements, sewers or other confined spaces
- avoid exposure
- PUBLIC SAFETY HAZARD !
- request nearby people to stay in the buildings, to close doors and windows and to switch air conditioning off
- consider evacuation of people in immediate danger

Environmental protections
- if possible close leaks
- do not allow to enter drains or waterways (explosion hazard)
- if the substance reaches waters or the sewer system, inform the competent authority

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
- collect liquid by means of sand, earth or another suitable material or cover it with foam
- during the pouring by a pump bear in mind adequate earthing
- make use of explosion-proof pumps
- collect the product spilled out into ventilated containers equipped with absorption filters

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Technical measures
- processing in closed systems, if possible superposed by inert gas (e.g. nitrogen)
- connect the equipment to earth, avoid effective sources of ignition
- take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging
- avoid formation of aerosols
- open and handle container with care

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Storage conditions
- below 25 °C
- store under inert gas
- protected from light
- Validity <= 6 months
