First-aid measures

Exposure by Inhalation: Symptoms may include irritation of nose, throat and lungs, including coughing. Remove person to fresh air. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

Exposure by Skin Contact: Symptoms may include irritation and reddening of the affected skin area. Wash skin with soap & water. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

Exposure by Eye Contact: Symptoms may include stinging and reddening of eyes. Flush eyes with plenty of clean water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention if symptoms persist.

Exposure by Ingestion: Symptoms may include gastric upset and nausea. Do not induce vomiting. Seek immediate medical attention if symptoms persist.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable Extinguishing Media: Dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide.

Hazards from Combustion Products: May produce oxides of carbon if burning.

Extinguishing Media not to be used: Use of water extinguishing media on any oil fire should be avoided.

Specific Exposure Hazards: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a fire.

Protective Equipment for Fire-fighters: Full protective clothing & self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity. Wear suitable protective equipment.

Safety Precautions: Eliminate all ignition sources. Ventilate area.

Exposure controls / personal protection

The provision of personal protective equipment and the need to provide engineering control measures should be decided upon by the user as part of a formal exposure risk assessment.

Based upon the available toxicological information the protective measures described below should be regarded as a minimum.

EXPOSURE CONTROL: No Exposure Standard allocated.

BIOLOGICAL LIMIT VALUES: No Biological Limit allocated.

ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use only in a well-ventilated area.


Respiratory Protection: Based on current information & in the absence of occupational exposure limits, use of a vapour mask to a minimum standard of EN405 FFA1 is recommended if ventilation is poor or the space is confined.

Hand Protection: Chemical protective gloves to a Standard EN374 should be provided. Usage periods should not exceed the breakthrough times for the chemical stated by the manufacturer of the glove.

Eye Protection: Eye protection (safety glasses), should be used when handling the substance. The protection should be capable of giving chemical protection as classified in EN166.

Skin Protection: Handling of the material should be done wearing chemical protective clothing suitable for protection against the chemical as classified by Standard EN368.


Stability and reactivity

CHEMICAL STABILITY: Chemically stable material.


INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Strong Oxidising agents.

HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide & other hazardous decomposition products may form under fire conditions.


Disposal considerations

Waste from Residues: Dispose of by incineration or landfill in accordance with local regulations.

Contaminated / Empty Packaging: Dispose of by incineration or landfill in accordance with local regulations.
