First-aid measures

- Description of first aid measures

Inhalation: Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed.

Eye contact: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a POISON CENTER/doctor/…

Skin Contact: Wash with soap and water. If skin irritation occurs, get medical attention.

Ingestion: Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention.

- Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed

Hazards: No data available.

Treatment: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

General Fire Hazards: No unusual fire or explosion hazards noted.

- Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: CO2, Dry chemical or Foam. Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

- Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: A solid stream of water will spread the burning material. Material creates a special hazard because it floats on water.

- Advice for firefighters

Special fire fighting procedures: No data available.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Recommend wearing self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Personal Protective Equipment must be worn, see Personal Protection Section for PPE recommendations. Ventilate area if spilled in confined space or other poorly ventilated areas.

- Environmental Precautions: Do not contaminate water sources or sewer. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.

- Methods and material for containment and cleaning up: Dike far ahead of larger spill for later recovery and disposal. Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Prevent entry into waterways, sewer, basements or confined areas.

Handling and storage

- Precautions for safe handling: Do not get in eyes. Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Keep container closed when not in use and use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with skin or eyes. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Empty container contains product residue which may exhibit hazards of product.

Maximum Handling Temperature: Not determined.

- Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store away from incompatible materials. Store in tightly closed original container in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Maximum Storage Temperature: Not determined.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures

Occupational Exposure Limits: None of the components have assigned exposure limits.

2. Organisational protection measures

Appropriate engineering controls: No special requirements under ordinary conditions of use and with adequate ventilation.

General information: Please follow the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE) guidelines below and refer to the appropriate EN standard where applicable. Provide easy access to water supply and eye wash facilities. Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.

Hygiene measures: Observe good industrial hygiene practices. Do not get in eyes.

3. Hand protection

Hand Protection: Suitable gloves can be recommended by the glove supplier. Use nitrile or neoprene gloves. Use good industrial hygiene practices. In case of skin contact, wash hands and arms with soap and water.

General: Because specific work environments and material handling practices vary, safety procedures should be specific for each intended application. The correct choice of protective gloves depends upon the chemicals being handled, and the conditions of work and use. Most gloves provide protection for only a limited time before they must be discarded and replaced (even the best chemically resistant gloves will break down after repeated chemical exposures). Gloves should be chosen in consultation with the supplier / manufacturer and taking account of a full assessment of the working conditions. For typical use and handling of chemical substances, gloves should meet the standards set out in EN 374. For applications involving mechanical risks with potential for abrasion or puncture, the standards set out in EN 388 should be considered. For tasks involving thermal hazards, the standards set out in EN 407 should be considered.

Break-through time: Breakthrough time data are generated by glove manufacturers under laboratory test conditions and represent how long a glove can be expected to provide effective permeation resistance. It is important when following breakthrough time recommendations that actual workplace conditions are taken into account. Always consult with your glove supplier for up-to-date technical information on breakthrough times for the recommended glove type.

For continuous contact, we suggest gloves with a minimum breakthrough time of 240 minutes, or > 480 minutes if suitable gloves can be obtained. If suitable gloves are not available to offer that level of protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may be acceptable as long as appropriate glove maintenance and replacement regimes are determined and adhered to.

For short-term, transient exposures and splash protection, gloves with shorter breakthrough times may commonly be used. Therefore, appropriate maintenance and replacement regimes must be determined and rigorously followed.

Glove thickness: For general applications, we recommend gloves with a thickness typically greater than 0.35 mm.

It is important to note that glove thickness is not the only predictor of glove resistance to a specific chemical, as the permeation efficiency of the glove will be dependent on the exact composition of the glove material. Therefore, glove selection should also be based on consideration of the task requirements and knowledge of breakthrough times.

Glove thickness may also vary depending on the glove manufacturer, the glove type and the glove model. Therefore, the manufacturers’ technical data should always be taken into account to ensure selection of the most appropriate glove for the task.

Note: Depending on the activity being conducted, gloves of varying thickness may be required for specific tasks. For example: Thinner gloves (down to 0.1 mm or less) may be required where a high degree of manual dexterity is needed. However, these gloves are only likely to give short duration protection and would normally be just for single use applications, before being disposed of. Thicker gloves (up to 3 mm or more) may be required where there is a mechanical (as well as a chemical) risk i.e. where there is abrasion or puncture potential.

4. Feet protection

No specific advice

5. Body protection

Long sleeve shirt is recommended. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

6. Eye protection

Safety glasses. If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield. Eye protection should meet the standards set out in EN 166.

7. Respiratory protection

A respiratory protection program compliant with all applicable regulations must be followed whenever workplace conditions require the use of a respirator. Under normal use conditions, respirator is not usually required. Use appropriate respiratory protection if exposure to dust particles, mist or vapors is likely. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is not normally required where there is adequate natural or local exhaust ventilation to control exposure.

In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

The correct choice of respiratory protection depends upon the chemicals being handled, the conditions of work and use, and the condition of the respiratory equipment.

Safety procedures should be developed for each intended application.

Respiratory protection equipment should therefore be chosen in consultation with the supplier/manufacturer and with a full assessment of the working conditions.

Please refer to the relevant EN standards for the RPE selected.
