First-aid measures

General advice: Avoid direct contact with the substance.

Self-protection of the first aider: Wear appropriate personal protective equipment, avoid direct contact. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves. Provide proper respiratory protection to rescuers entering an unknown atmosphere. Apply artificial respiration if necessary (do not employ mouth-to-mouth method). Contaminated clothing should be discarded.

IF INHALED: IMMEDIATELY leave the contaminated area; take deep breaths of fresh air. If experiencing respiratory symptoms: Call a POISON CENTER or
Doctor / physician.

IF ON SKIN (or hair): IMMEDIATELY flood affected skin with water while removing and isolating all contaminated clothing. Immediately wash thoroughly with plenty of water, apply sterile dressings. Obtain immediate medical attention, consult a skin specialist.

IF IN EYES: Hold eyelids apart and flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Do not put any ointments, oils, or medication in the victim's eyes without specific instructions from a physician. IMMEDIATELY call a POISON CENTER/ doctor. Treatment by an ophthalmologist due to possible caustic burn of the eyes may be required.

IF SWALLOWED: Rinse mouth. ONLY induce vomiting at the instructions of a physician. If the victim is convulsing or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth, ensure that the victim's airway is open and lay the victim on his/her side with the head lower than the body. Transport the victim IMMEDIATELY to a hospital.

Symptoms: Harmful if swallowed. Toxic in contact with skin. Causes severe skin burns and eye damage. May cause damage to blood through prolonged or repeated exposure via oral exposure

Medical treatment: No antidotes known. Treat symptomatically.

Note to physician: Treat according to symptoms, no known specific antidote. Effects may be delayed, keep under medical observation.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: SMALL FIRE: Dry chemical,water spray or regular foam

LARGE FIRE: Water spray, fog or regular foam.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance: Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or released gases: Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide (CO2). Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons.

Advice for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing. Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Ensure adequate ventilation. Ensure suitable personal protection during removal of spillages. Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. Contaminated clothing should be discarded. Avoid all contact with substance. Do not breathe vapour/mist/spray. Persons should remain upwind of the vapour cloud. Other protection measures such as segregation of activity, minimisation of personnel, respiratory protection, impervious suits and face shields should also be considered for high dispersion activities which are likely to lead to substantial mist, aerosol or vapour release, e.g. spraying. Avoid allowing water runoff to contact spilled material. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. SMALL SPILL: Cover with DRY earth, DRY sand or other non‐combustible material followed with plastic sheet to minimize spreading or contact with rain. Use clean, non‐sparking tools to collect material and place it into loosely covered plastic containers for later disposal.

Environmental precautions:Avoid release to the environment. Do not allow into any sewer on the ground, or into any body of water. Any large spillage into watercourses must be alerted to the regulatory authority responsible for environmental protection or other regulatory body. Bund storage facilities to prevent soil and water pollution in the event of spillage.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Only trained and properly protected personnel must be involved in clean-up operations. In the case of a spill or leak, earth, sand, or some other non-combustible absorbent material can be used to absorb the chemical. This material is then placed in a clean, dry, covered container for later disposal. Dry spills can be removed using a clean shovel. For large spills, the liquid should be contained, or diked, at a distance from the spill for later disposal. In the case of an air release, vapours should be knocked down with a water spray. Transfer to a lidded container for disposal or recovery. Ventilate the area and wash spill site after material pick-up is complete. Do not re-enter the contaminated area until the Safety Officer (or other responsible person) has verified that the area has been properly cleaned.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection. Contaminated clothing should be discarded. Keep good industrial hygiene. Wash hands before breaks and after work. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Do not breathe vapour/mist/spray. Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking. Ground and bond container and receiving equipment.

Conditions for safe storage:Store in correctly labelled containers. Opened containers should be carefully resealed and stored in an upright position. Substance should be stored in tightly closed containers, labelled as corrosive, and stored in a cool, dry place, away from moisture, heat, and strong oxidizing agents.

Incompatible materials: Material is a strong solvent and can soften paints, certain plastics and rubbers

Exposure controls / personal protection

Hygiene measures: Keep good industrial hygiene. Guarantee that the eye flushing systems and safety showers are closely located to the working place.

Respiratory protection: No specific guide-lines are available. Since this chemical is not very volatile, respiratory protection should not be necessary unless the material is heated or a mist created. If respiratory protection is required, institute a complete respiratory protection program including selection,fit testing, training, maintenance and inspection.

Hand protection: Wear impervious gloves (EN374). After contamination with product change the gloves immediately and dispose of them according to relevant national and local regulations. Recommended glove material: Neoprene or butyl rubber.

Eye protection: Wear goggles giving complete protection to eyes to protect against liquid splashes i.e. tightly fitting safety goggles (cage goggles) (e.g. EN 166) and face shield.

Skin and body protection: Wear impervious protective clothing, including boots, lab coat, apron or coveralls, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact.

Environmental Exposure Controls: Avoid release to the environment. Do not allow into any sewer on the ground, or into any body of water. Bund storage facilities to prevent soil and water pollution in the event of spillage.
