First-aid measures

Remove person to fresh air. If you feel unwell, get medical attention.

Skin Contact:
Wash with soap and water. If signs/symptoms develop, get medical attention.

Eye Contact:
Flush with large amounts of water. Remove contact lenses if easy to do. Continue rinsing. If signs/symptoms persist, get medical attention.

If Swallowed:
Rinse mouth. If you feel unwell, get medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
See SDS Section 11.1. Information on toxicological effects.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment required:
Not applicable

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media:
Material will not burn.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Exposure to extreme heat can give rise to thermal decomposition.

Advice for fire-fighters:
When fire fighting conditions are severe and total thermal decomposition of the product is possible, wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained, positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, bunker coat and pants, bands around arms, waist and legs, face mask, and protective covering for exposed areas of the head.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Ventilate the area with fresh air.

Environmental precautions:
Avoid release to the environment. For larger spills, cover drains and build dikes to prevent entry into sewer systems or bodies of water.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:
Contain spill. Working from around the edges of the spill inward, cover with bentonite, vermiculite, or commercially available inorganic absorbent material. Mix in sufficient absorbent until it appears dry. Remember, adding an absorbent material does not remove a physical, health, or environmental hazard. Collect as much of the spilled material as possible. Place in a closed container approved for transportation by appropriate authorities. Clean up residue with an appropriate solvent selected by a qualified and authorized person. Ventilate the area with fresh air. Read and follow safety precautions on the solvent label and SDS. Seal the container. Dispose of collected material as soon as possible.

Reference to other sections:
Refer to SDS Section 8 and Section 13 for more information

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:
Do not breathe thermal decomposition products. Avoid skin contact with hot material. For industrial or professional use only. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product. Wash thoroughly after handling. Avoid contact with oxidizing agents (eg. chlorine, chromic acid etc.).

Conditions for safe storage including any incompatibilities:
Store in a well-ventilated place. Keep container tightly closed. Store away from heat. Store away from acids. Store away from strong bases. Store away from oxidizing agents.

Specific end use(s):
See information in SDS Section 7.1 and 7.2 for handling and storage recommendations. See SDS Section 8 for exposure controls and personal protection recommendations.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters

Occupational exposure limits:
No occupational exposure limit values exist for any of the components listed in Section 3 of the SDS.

Exposure controls

Engineering controls:

Provide appropriate local exhaust when product is heated. Use general dilution ventilation and/or local exhaust ventilation to control airborne exposures to below relevant Exposure Limits and/or control dust/fume/gas/mist/vapors/spray. If ventilation is not adequate, use respiratory protection equipment.

Personal protective equipment (PPE):

Eye/face protection:
None required.

Skin/hand protection:
No chemical protective gloves are required.

Respiratory protection:
Under normal use conditions, airborne exposures are not expected to be significant enough to require respiratory protection.

Thermal hazards:
Wear heat insulating gloves when handling hot material to prevent thermal burns.

Stability and reactivity

This material is considered to be non reactive under normal use conditions.

Chemical stability:

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Hazardous polymerization will not occur.

Conditions to avoid:
None known.

Incompatible materials:
Strong acids
Strong bases
Strong oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products:
Substance Condition
Carbon monoxide At Elevated Temperatures - extreme conditions of heat
Carbon dioxide At Elevated Temperatures - extreme conditions of heat
Hydrogen Fluoride At Elevated Temperatures - extreme conditions of heat
Toxic Vapor, Gas, Particulate At Elevated Temperatures - extreme conditions of heat

Extreme heat arising from situations such as misuse or equipment failure can generate hydrogen fluoride as a decomposition product.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods:
Dispose of contents/ container in accordance with the local/regional/national/international regulations.

Dispose of waste product in a permitted industrial waste facility. As a disposal alternative, incinerate in a permitted waste incineration facility. Proper destruction may require the use of additional fuel during incineration processes. Combustion products will include halogen acid (HCl/HF/HBr). Facility must be capable of handling halogenated materials. Empty drums/barrels/containers used for transporting and handling hazardous chemicals (chemical substances/mixtures/preparations classified as Hazardous as per applicable regulations) shall be considered, stored, treated & disposed of as hazardous wastes unless otherwise defined by applicable waste regulations. Consult with the respective regulating authorities to determine the available treatment and disposal facilities.

The coding of a waste stream is based on the application of the product by the consumer. Since this is out of the control of 3M, no waste code(s) for products after use will be provided. Please refer to the European Waste Code (EWC - 2000/532/CE and amendments) to assign the correct waste code to your waste stream. Ensure national and/or regional regulations are complied with and always use a licensed waste contractor
