First-aid measures

General notes       :       Take Hazard and Precautionary phrases into account.

Following inhalation       :       Remove person to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing.   If experiencing respiratory symptoms: call a poison centre or doctor/physician.


Following skin contact       : Wash with plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothes. If skin irritation or rash occurs: Get medical advice/attention

Following eye contact       : Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. If eye irritation persists: Get medical advice/attention

Following ingestion       : Call a Poison Centre or doctor if you feel unwell.  Do not induce vomiting. Rinse mouth.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms       :       No information available.

Risks       :       No information available.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Treatment       :       No information available.  

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media       :       Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media       :       Do not use a direct waterjet on burning material.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Water may be ineffective.

Advice for firefighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary. Use water spray to cool unopened containers.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions       :       Use personal protective equipment. Avoid inhalation and contact with skin and eyes. A self-contained breathing apparatus is recommended in case of a major spill. Remove all sources of ignition.

Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions       :       Keep away from drains, surface water, groundwater and soil.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up       :       Clean up spillage promptly. Remove ignition sources. Provide adequate ventilation. Avoid excessive inhalation of vapours. Gross spillages should be contained by use of sand or inert powder and disposed of according to the local regulations. Contain spillage, and then collect with a non-combustible absorbent material. Place in a container for disposal according to local/national regulations. (see section 13).

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling       :       Follow good manufacturing practices.

             Wash hands thoroughly after handling.

             Contaminated clothing and shoes should be thoroughly cleaned

             before re-use.

Advice on protection against       :       Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources.

fire and explosion              No smoking

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas       :       Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep cool. Keep

and containers              container tightly closed.

Specific end uses

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

Where appropriate, use closed systems to transfer and process this material.

If appropriate, isolate mixing rooms and other areas where this material is used or openly handled and maintain

these areas under negative air pressure relative to the rest of the plant. Handle in accordance to good industrial practice.

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection       :       Use local exhaust ventilation around open tanks and other open

             sources of potential exposures in order to avoid excessive inhalation,

             including places where this material is openly weighed or measured.

             In addition, use general dilution ventilation of the work area to

             eliminate or reduce possible worker exposures.

             No respiratory protection is required during normal operations in a

             workplace where engineering controls such as adequate ventilation,

             etc. are sufficient.

             If engineering controls and safe work practices are not sufficient, an

             approved, properly fitted respirator with organic vapour cartridges or

             canisters and particulate filters should be used:

             a) while engineering controls and appropriate safe work practices

             and/or procedures are being implemented; or

             b) during short term maintenance procedures when engineering

             controls are not in normal operation or are not sufficient; or

             c) if normal operational workplace vapour concentration in the air is

             increased due to heat ;

             d) during emergencies; or

             e) if engineering controls and operational practices are not sufficient

             to reduce airborne concentrations below an established occupational

             exposure limit.

Skin protection       :       Avoid skin contact. Use chemically resistant gloves. Gloves should be inspected before use. Use proper glove removal technique (without touching the outer surface of the glove) to avoid skin contact. Dispose of contaminated gloves after use in accordance with applicable laws and good laboratory practices. Wash and dry hands.

Eye/face protection       :       Use tight-fitting goggles, face shield or safety glasses with side

             shields if eye contact might occur.

Hygiene measures       :       To the extent deemed appropriate, implement pre-placement and

             regularly scheduled ascertainment of symptoms and spirometry

             testing of lung function for workers who are regularly exposed to

             this material.

             To the extent deemed appropriate, use an experienced air sampling

             expert to identify and measure volatile chemicals that could be

             present in the workplace air to determine potential exposures and to

             ensure the continuing effectiveness of engineering controls and

             operational practices to minimize exposure.

Environmental exposure controls

General advice       :       Keep away from drains, surface- and groundwater and soil.
