First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures
Eye: Flush eyes with water immediately while holding the eyelids open. Remove contact lenses, if worn,
after initial flushing, and continue flushing for at least 15 minutes. Get immediate medical attention.
Skin: Wash skin with water immediately and remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical
attention if any symptoms develop. To remove the material from skin, use soap and water. Discard
contaminated clothing and shoes or thoroughly clean before reuse.
Ingestion: If swallowed, get medical attention. Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person.
Inhalation: No specific first aid measures are required. If exposed to excessive levels of material in the air,
move the exposed person to fresh air. Get medical attention if coughing or respiratory discomfort occurs.
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
IMMEDIATE SYMPTOMS AND HEALTH EFFECTS
Eye: Contact with the eyes causes permanent damage, including blindness. Symptoms may include pain,
tearing, reddening, swelling and impaired vision.
Skin: Contact with the skin may cause an allergic skin reaction. Contact with the skin causes irritation.
Symptoms may include pain, itching, discoloration, swelling, and blistering.
Ingestion: May be irritating to mouth, throat, and stomach. Symptoms may include pain, nausea, vomiting,
and diarrhea.
Inhalation: Not expected to be harmful if inhaled.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Combustion Products: Highly dependent on combustion conditions. A complex mixture of airborne
solids, liquids, and gases including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and unidentified organic compounds
will be evolved when this material undergoes combustion. Combustion may form oxides of: Nitrogen,
Unidentified organic compounds .
5.3 Advice for firefighters
This material will burn although it is not easily ignited. For fires involving this material, do not enter any
enclosed or confined fire space without proper protective equipment, including self-contained breathing
apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spilled material. Refer to Sections 5 and 8 for more
information.
6.2 Environmental precautions
Stop the source of the release if you can do it without risk. Contain release to prevent further
contamination of soil, surface water or groundwater.
6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Clean up spill as soon as possible, observing precautions in Exposure Controls/Personal Protection. Use
appropriate techniques such as applying non-combustible absorbent materials or pumping. Where feasible
and appropriate, remove contaminated soil and dispose of in a manner consistent with applicable
requirements. Place other contaminated materials in disposable containers and dispose of in a manner
consistent with applicable requirements. Report spills to local authorities as appropriate or required.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling
General Handling Information: Avoid contaminating soil or releasing this material into sewage and
drainage systems and bodies of water.
Precautionary Measures: Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not taste or swallow. Wash
thoroughly after handling.
Static Hazard: Electrostatic charge may accumulate and create a hazardous condition when handling this
material. To minimize this hazard, bonding and grounding may be necessary but may not, by themselves,
be sufficient. Review all operations which have the potential of generating and accumulating an
electrostatic charge and/or a flammable atmosphere (including tank and container filling, splash filling, tank
cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, filtering, mixing, agitation, and vacuum truck operations) and
use appropriate mitigating procedures.
Container Warnings: Container is not designed to contain pressure. Do not use pressure to empty
container or it may rupture with explosive force. Empty containers retain product residue (solid, liquid,
and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose
such containers to heat, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition. They may explode and
cause injury or death. Empty containers should be completely drained, properly closed, and promptly
returned to a drum reconditioner or disposed of properly.

Exposure controls / personal protection

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS:
Consider the potential hazards of this material (see Section 2), applicable exposure limits, job activities,
and other substances in the work place when designing engineering controls and selecting personal
protective equipment. If engineering controls or work practices are not adequate to prevent exposure to
harmful levels of this material, the personal protective equipment listed below is recommended. The user
should read and understand all instructions and limitations supplied with the equipment since protection is
usually provided for a limited time or under certain circumstances. Refer to appropriate CEN standards.
8.1 Control parameters
Occupational Exposure Limits:No applicable occupational exposure limits exist for this material or its
components. Consult local authorities for appropriate values.
8.2 Exposure controls
ENGINEERING CONTROLS:
Use in a well-ventilated area.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Eye/Face Protection: Wear protective equipment to prevent eye contact. Selection of protective equipment
may include safety glasses, chemical goggles, face shields, or a combination depending on the work
operations conducted.
Skin Protection: Wear protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Selection of protective clothing may
include gloves, apron, boots, and complete facial protection depending on operations conducted.
Suggested materials for protective gloves include: Nitrile Rubber, Silver Shield, Viton.
Respiratory Protection: No respiratory protection is normally required.
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE CONTROLS:
See relevant Community environmental protection legislation or the Annex, as applicable.
