First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

After inhalation: fresh air. Consult doctor if feeling unwell.

After skin contact: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water/shower.

After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water. Call in ophthalmologist. Remove contact lenses.

After swallowing: immediately make victim drink water (two glasses at most). Consult a physician.


Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: irritant effects
The following applies to boron compounds in general: resorption is followed by nausea and vomiting, agitation, spasms, CNS disorders, cardiovascular disorders.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media: Water, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder

Unsuitable extinguishing media: For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Fire may cause evolution of: Hydrogen fluoride.


Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:

Combustible material. Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.


Advice for firefighters:

Special protective equipment for firefighters:Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.

Further information: Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:

Advice for non-emergency personnel: Avoid inhalation of dusts. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.


Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.


Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:

Methods for cleaning up: Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions (see sections 7 and 10). Take up dry. Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area. Avoid generation of dusts.

Handling and storage

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:

Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.


Exposure controls:

Engineering measures: Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given priority over the use of personal protective equipment.


Personal protective equipment:

Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled and must meet the specifications of a standard EN/ISO/DIN. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.

Eye/face protection: Safety glasses

Hand protection:

full contact:

Glove material: Nitrile rubber

Glove thickness: 0.11 mm

Break through time: 480 min

splash contact:

Glove material: Nitrile rubber

Glove thickness: 0.11 mm

Break through time: 480 min

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example:KCL 741 Dermatril® L(full contact);KCL 741 Dermatril® L(splash contact).
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet, supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet:


Protective measures: Protective clothing


Respiratory protection: required when dusts are generated.

Recommended Filter type: Filter P 2 (acc. to DIN 3181) for solid and liquid particles of harmful substances

The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.


Environmental exposure controls: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.

Stability and reactivity


The following applies in general to flammable organic substances and mixtures: in correspondingly fine distribution, when whirled up a dust explosion potential may generally be assumed.


Chemical stability:

The product is chemically stable under standard ambient conditions (room temperature) .


Possibility of hazardous reactions:

Hazardous reactions: Violent reactions possible with: Strong oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Waste material must be disposed of in accordance with the Directive on waste 2008/98/EC as well as other national and local regulations. Leave chemicals in original containers. No mixing with other waste. Handle uncleaned containers like the product itself.
