First-aid measures

General advice:
Seek medical advice. If breathing has stopped or is labored, give assisted respirations. Supplemental oxygen may be indicated. If the heart has stopped,
trained personnel should begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation immediately.

Eye contact:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water also under the eyelids for at least 20 minutes. Remove contact lenses.

Skin contact:
Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 20 minutes. Wash off with soap and water. Immediately remove contaminated clothing, and any extraneous chemical, if possible to do so without delay. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately.

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Prevent aspiration of vomit. Turn victim's head to the side.

Move to fresh air.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed Symptoms:
No data available.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed Treatment:
NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: Application of corticosteroid cream has been effective in treating skin irritation.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:
Alcohol-resistant foam.
Carbon dioxide (CO2).
Dry chemical.
Dry sand.
Limestone powder.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
No data available.

Special hazards arising from the substance:
Incomplete combustion may form carbon monoxide. Burning produces noxious and toxic fumes. In the event of fire, cool tanks with water spray. Fire or intense heat may cause violent rupture of packages. May form explosive mixtures in air. Formation of peroxides is possible.

Advice for fire-fighters:
Avoid contact with the skin. Use personal protective equipment. Wear self contained breathing apparatus for fire fighting if necessary.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions,protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Use self-contained breathing apparatus and chemically protective clothing.
Remove all sources of ignition.
Evacuate personnel to safe areas.

Environmental precautions:
Shut off or remove all ignition sources.
Shut off or remove all ignition sources.
Construct a dike to prevent spreading.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Contact Air Products' Emergency Response Center for advice.
Approach suspected leak areas with caution.

Absorb with inert absorbent materials such as:
Dry sand.
Activated charcoal.
Place in appropriate chemical waste container.

Additional advice:
If possible, stop flow of product.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Avoid contact with eyes.
Use personal protective equipment.
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep away from alkalis.
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.
Keep in a dry, cool place.
Keep away from oxidizers.
Technical measures/Precautions
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition.

Assess potential flammability hazards based on flashpoint and potential ignition sources.
Ensure adequate ventilation.
Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
Provide natural or explosion-proof ventilation adequate to ensure concentrations are kept below exposure limits.
Personal protective equipment

Hand protection:
Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates this is necessary.
Neoprene gloves.
Nitrile rubber.
Impervious gloves.

Eye/face Protection:
Chemical resistant goggles must be worn.
Skin and body protection : Long sleeve shirts and trousers without cuffs.
Impervious clothing.

Environmental exposure controls:
Shut off or remove all ignition sources.
Shut off or remove all ignition sources.

Special instructions for protection and hygiene:
Wash hands at the end of each workshift and before eating, smoking or using the toilet.
Remove contaminated clothing.
Drench affected area with water for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contaminated clothing.
Drench affected area with water for at least 15 minutes. Provide readily accessible eye wash stations and safety showers.
