First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Inhalation
If aerosol or mists are formed:
If necessary: Provide with fresh air.
Skin contact
Wash off with plenty of water and soap.
Eye contact
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water keeping eyelid open.
In case of persistent discomfort: Consult an ophthalmologist.
Ingestion
Have the mouth rinsed with water.
After absorbing large amounts of substance / In case of discomfort: Supply with medical care.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms
None known
Hazards
None known
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
After absorbing large amounts of substance:
administration of activated charcoal.
Acceleration of gastrointestinal passage

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: water spray
foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media: high volume water jet
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
product is highly flammable.
Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.
Closed container may rupture if strongly heated.
Pay attention to flashback.
Advice for firefighters
Water used to extinguish fire should not enter drainage systems, soil or stretches of water.
Ensure there are sufficient retaining facilities for water used to extinguish fire.
Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
In case of fire: wear a self contained respiratory apparatus


Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective equipment.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions
Do not allow entrance in sewage water, soil stretches of water, groundwater, drainage systems.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust).
Fill into marked, sealable containers.
To be disposed of in compliance with existing regulations.
Suitable absorbents:
universal absorbent
diatomaceous earth

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Provide good ventilation or extraction
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Take precautionary measures against static discharges.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Explosion protection equipment required.
Danger of explosion from residual product fumes; therefore avoid spark production through cutting, grinding, or welding work in the area of the container.
When repairs of the production system are to be made (e.g. welding work), the section to be repaired must be essentially free of product.
Storage
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.
Protect from moisture.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Other information
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Provide adequate ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection
In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:
use respiratory equipment with suitable filter (filter type ABEK) or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus
Use only respiratory protection equipment with CE-symbol including four digit test number.
The filter class for the respirator must be suitable for the maximum expected contaminant concentration (gas/vapour/aerosol/particulates) that may arise when handling the product. If this concentration is exceeded, self-contained breathing apparatus must be used.
Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
Hand protection
Glove material butyl-rubber
Material thickness 0,5 mm
Break through time >= 480 min
Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.
Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.
The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.
Please observe that the daily duration of usage of a chemical protective glove is in practice far shorter due to the many influencing factors (e.g. temperature, mechanical strain on the glove material) than the permeation time determined acc. EN 374.
Eye protection
Safety glasses
Skin and body protection
Wear protective clothing made from non-flammable fibres.
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash face and/or hands before break and end of work.
Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.
Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Protective measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
The personal protective equipment used must meet the requirements of directive 89/686/EEC and amendments (CE certification).
If workplace exposure limits are exceeded and/or larger amounts are released (leakage, spilling, dust) the indicated respiratory protection should be used.
If there is the possibility of skin/eye contact, the indicated hand/eye/body protection should be used.
Do not breathe in vapours or aerosols.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
No dangerous reaction known under conditions of normal use.
Chemical stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Possibility of hazardous reactions Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Conditions to avoid
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition
Incompatible materials
water, Oxidizing agents
Hazardous decomposition products
Ethanol in case of hydrolysis
Alcohol formed by hydrolysis lowers the flash point of the product.

Disposal considerations

Product
With respect to local regulations, e.g. dispose of to suitable waste incineration plant.
Uncleaned packaging
Do not reuse empty containers and dispose of in accordance with the regulations issued by the appropriate local authorities.
If there is product residue in the emptied container, follow directions for handling on the container's label.
Incorrect disposal or reuse of this container is illegal and can be dangerous.
Other countries: observe the national regulations.
Waste Key Number
No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.
The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
