First-aid measures

- General advice: Have the product container, label or Material Safety Data Sheet with you when calling the Syngenta emergency number, a poison control centre or physician, or going for treatment.
- Inhalation: Move the victim to fresh air. If breathing is irregular or stopped, administer artificial respiration. Keep patient warm and at rest. Call a physician or poison control centre immediately.
- Skin contact: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash off immediately with plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, call a physician. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
- Eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Immediate medical attention is required.
- Ingestion: If swallowed, seek medical advice immediately and show the container or label. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.
- Medical advice: There is no specific antidote available. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

- Suitable extinguishing media:
Extinguishing media – small fires: Use water spray, alcohol resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide
Extinguishing media – large fires: Alcohol resistant foam or water spray
- Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
- Specific hazards during fire fighting: Fire will spread by burning with a visible flame. As the product contains combustible organic components, fire will produce a dense black smoke containing hazardous products of combustion. Exposure to decomposition products may be a hazard to health.
- Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Further information: Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses. Cool closed containers exposed to fire with water spray.

Accidental release measures

- Personal precautions: Refer to fields "Handling and storage" and "Exposure controls/personal protection". Avoid dust formation
- Environmental precautions: Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system.
- Methods for cleaning up: Contain spillage, pick up with an electricity protected vacuum cleaner or by wet-brushing and transfer to a container for disposal according to local regulations. Do not create a powder cloud by using a brush or compressed air. Clean contaminated surface thoroughly.
- Additional advice: If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Handling and storage

HANDLING
- Advice on safe handling: This material is capable of forming flammable dust clouds in air, which, if ignited, can produce a dust cloud explosion. Flames, hot surfaces, mechanical sparks and electrostatic discharges can serve as ignition sources for this material. Electrical equipment should be compatible with the flammability characteristics of this material. The flammability characteristics will be made worse if the material contains traces of flammable solvents or is handled in the presence of flammable solvents.
In general personnel handling this material and all conducting equipment should be electrically earthed or grounded.
Consideration should be given to avoiding the use of insulating plastics. Bulk bags (FIBC) used to contain this material should be Type C or Type D. Type C bags must be electrically grounded before powder is charged to or discharged from the bag. Bag filters used to scavenge dust from material handling processes should be conductive and electrically grounded during use. If metal or fibre drums are used to contain this product, make certain that the metal parts are bonded to the filling equipment and grounded.
This material can become readily charged in most operations.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
For personal protection see field “Exposure controls/personal protection”.

STORAGE
- Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Keep out of reach of children. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Exposure controls / personal protection

EXPOSURE LIMITS
Component: Propanediamide, 2-(2,6-diethyl-4-methylphenyl)-
Exposure limit: 1.0 mg/m³
Type of exposure limit: 8 h TWA
Source: SYNGENTA

ENGINEERING MEASURES
Containment and/or segregation is the most reliable technical protection measure if exposure cannot be eliminated. The extent of these protection measures depends on the actual risks in use. If airborne dust is generated, use local exhaust ventilation control. Assess exposure and use any additional measure to keep airborne levels below any relevant exposure limit. Seek additional occupational hygiene advice.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
- Protection measures: The use of technical measures should always have priority over the use of personal protective equipment. When selecting personal protective equipment, seek appropriate professional advice. Personal protective equipment should be certified to appropriate standards.
- Respiratory protection: A particulate filter respiratory may be necessary until effective technical measures are installed. Protection provided by air-purifying respirators is limited. Use a self-contained breathing apparatus in cases of emergency spills, when exposure levels are unknown, or under any circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
- Hand protection: Chemical resistant gloves should be used. Gloves should be certified to an appropriate standard. Gloves should have a minimum breakthrough time that is appropriate to the duration of exposure. The breakthrough time of gloves varies according to thickness, material and manufacturer. Gloves should be discarded and replaced if there is any indication of degradation or chemical breakthrough. Suitable material: Nitrile rubber.
- Eye protection: Eye protection is not usually required. Follow any site specific eye protection policies.
- Skin and body protection: Assess the exposure and select chemical resistant clothing based on the potential for contact and the permeation/penetration characteristics of the clothing material. Wash wish soap and water after removing protective clothing. Decontaminate clothing before re-use, or use disposable equipment (suits, aprons, sleeves, boots, etc.). Wear as appropriate: Dust impervious protective suit.

Stability and reactivity

- Hazardous decomposition products: Combustion or thermal decomposition will evolve toxic and irritant vapours.
- Hazardous reactions: None known. Hazardous polymerisation does not occur. Stable under normal conditions.

Disposal considerations

- Product: Where possible recycling is preferred to disposal or incineration. It must undergo special treatment, e.g. at suitable disposal site, to comply with local regulations.
- Contaminated packaging: Dispose of as unused product.
