First-aid measures

Inhalation:
If fumes or combusion products are inhaled remove from contaminated area. Other measures are usually unecessary.

Skin:
If skin contact occurs flush skin and hair with running water and soap if available. Seek medical attention in the event of irritation.

Eyes:
If the product comes in contact with eyes wash out immediately with fresh running water. Ensure complete irrigation of the eye by keeping eyelids apart and away from eye and moving the eyelids by occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. If pain persists or recurs seek medical attention. Removal of contact lenses after an eye injury should only be undertaken by skilled personnel.

Ingestion:
If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain open airway and prevent aspiration. Observe the patient carefully. Never give liquid to a person showing signs of being sleepy or with reduced awareness; i.e. becoming unconscious. Give water to rinse out mouth, then provide liquid slowly and as much as casualty can comfortably drink. Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
Foam, dry chemical powder, BCF (where regulations permit), carbon dioxide, water spray or fog (large fires only).

Fire fighting:
Alert Emergency Responders and tell them location and nature of hazard.Wear full body protective clothing with breathing apparatus.Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water course. Use water delivered as a fine spray to control fire and cool adjacent area. Avoid spraying water onto liquid pools. Do not approach containers suspected to be hot. Cool fire exposed containers with water spray from a protected location. If safe to do so, remove containers from path of fire.

General fire hazards:
Combustible. Slight fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame. Heating may cause expansion or decomposition leading to violent rupture of containers. On combustion, may emit toxic fumes of carbon monoxide (CO). May emit acrid smoke. Mists containing combustible materials may be explosive. Combustion products include: carbon dioxide (CO2), other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic material. May emit poisonous fumes. May emit corrosive fumes.

Fire incompatibility:
Avoid contamination with oxidising agents e.g. nitrates, oxidizing acids, chlorine bleaches, pool chlorine etc. because ignition may result.

Personal Protective Equipment:
Glasses: Safety glasses
Respirator: Type A filter of sufficient capacity

Accidental release measures

Minor spills:
Remove all ignition sources. Clean up all splls immediately. Avoid breathing vapours and contact with skin and eyes. Control personal contact by using protective equipment. Contain and absorb spill with sand, earth, inert material or vermiculite. Wipe up spills. Place in a suitable labeled contained for waste disposal.

Major spills:
Moderate hazard. Clear area of personnel and move upwind. Alert Emergency Responders and tell them the location and nature of hazard. Wear breathing apparatus and protective gloves. Prevent, by any means available, spillage from entering drains or water courses. No smoking, naked flames or ignition sources. Increase ventilation. Stop leak if safe to do soo. Contain spill with sand, earth of vermiculite. Collect recoverable product into labeled containers for recycling. Absorb remaining product with sand, earth of vermiculite. Collect solid residues and seal in labeled drums for disposal. Wash area and prevent runoff into drains. If contamination of drains or waterways occurs, advise emergency services.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Do not allow clothing wet with material to stay in contact with skin. Avoid personal contact, including inhalation. Wear protective clothing when risk of exposure occurs. Use in well-ventilated areas. Prevent concentration of material in hollows or sumps. DO NOT enter confined spaces until atmosphere has been checked. Avoid smoking, naked lights or ignition sources. Avoid contact eith incompatible materials. When handling, DO NOT eat, drink or smoke. Keep conainers securely sealed when not in use. Avoid physical damage to containers. Always wash hands with soap and water after handling. Work clothes should be laundered separately. Use good occupational work practice. Observe manufacturer's storage and handling recommendations. Atmosphere should be regularly checked against established exposure standards to ensure safe working conditions.

Conditions for safe storage:
Metal cans or drums. Paching as recommended by the manufacturer. Check all containers are clearly labeled and free from leaks.

Storage incompatibility:
Store in original containers. Keep containers securely sealed. No smoking, naked lights or ignition sources. Store in cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Store away from incompatible materials and foodstuff containers. Protect containers against physical damage and check regularly for leaks. Observe manufacturer's storing and handling recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures
General exhaust is adequate under normal operating conditions. Local exhaust ventilation may be required in specific circumstances. If risk of overexposure exists, an approved respirator should be worn as noted below.
2. Organisational protection measures
An eye wash unit should be provided in case of accidental exposure.
3. Hand protection
Wear chemical protective gloves such as PVC or neoprene.
4. Feet protection
Wear safety footwear or safety gumboots such as rubber.
5. Body protection
Appropriate overalls or other protective cothing (e.g. a PCV apron) should be worn
6. Eye protection
Safety glasses with side shields or chemical goggles should be worn. Contact lenses should not be worn as these may absorb and concentrate irritants.
7. Respiratory protection
Use appropriate NIOSH-certified respirator based on informed professional judgment.

Stability and reactivity

Stability:
Product is considered stable

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Hazardous polymerisation will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:
Avoid reaction with oxidizing agents.

Incompatible materials:
May react with strong acids, strong oxidisers, permanganates and nitrates. May attack some plastics.

Hazardous decomposition products:
Combustion products include: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), other pyrolysis products typical of burning organic material.

Disposal considerations

All waste must be handled in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.
Puncture containers to prevent re-use and bury at an authorized landfill.
Legislation addressing waste disposal requirements may differ by country, state and/or territory. Each user must refer to laws operating in their area. In some areas, certain wastes must be tracked.
This material may be recycled if unused, or if it has not been contaminated so as to make it unsuitable for its intended use. If it has been contaminated, it may be possible to reclaim the product by filtration, distillation or some other means. Shelf life considerations should also be applied in making decisions of this type. Note that properties of a material may change in use, and recycling or reuse may not always be appropriate.
DO NOT allow wash water from cleaning equipment to enter drains. Collect all wash water for treatment before disposal.
Recycle wherever possible or consult manufacturer for recycling options.
Bury or incinerate residue at an approved site.
Recycle containers if possible, or dispose of in an authorized landfill.
