First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures:
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical attention.
4.1.1 In case of inhalation:
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration Consult a physician.
4.1.2 In case of skin contact:
Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.
4.1.3 In case of eyes contact:
Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.
4.1.4 In case of ingestion:
Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed:
Causes serious eye damage. May cause respiratory irritation.
4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed:
If skin irritation or rash occurs, get medical advice/attention.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media:
Suitable extinguishing media: For small (incipient) fires, use media such as "alcohol" foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. For large fires, apply water from as far as possible. Use very large quantities (flooding) of water applied as a mist or spray.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Not available.
5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture In case of fire, the following can be released: Carbon oxides.
5.3 Advice for firefighters: Firefighters must wear fire resistant protective equipment. Wear approved respirator and protective gloves.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
6.1.1 For non-emergency personnel: Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Remove all sources of ignition. Beware of vapors accumulating to form explosive concentrations. Vapors can accumulate in low areas.
6.1.2 For emergency responders: Wear an appropriate NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator if vapor is generated.
6.2 Environmental Precautions: Avoid disposing into drainage/sewer system or directly into the aquatic environment.
6.3 Methods for Containment and Cleaning up: Contain spillage, and then collect with non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite) and place in container for disposal according to local / national regulations (see section 13). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.
6.4 Reference to other sections: See Section 7 for information on safe handling.
See Section 8 for information on personal protection equipment.
See Section 13 for information on disposal.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling:
7.1.1 Protective measures: Avoid inhalation of vapor or mist. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
7.1.2 Advice on general occupational hygiene: Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas. Wash hands after use. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.
7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store in cool place.
7.3 Specific end use(s): Not applicable.

Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1 Control parameters:
8.1.1 Occupational exposure limits: Occupational exposure limits: 8 h: 5 ppm, 25 mg/m3, 15 min: 10 ppm, 49 mg/m3 (Finland)
8.1.2 Additional exposure limits under the
conditions of use: Not available.
8.1.3 DNEL/DMEL and PNEC-Values: Not available.
8.2 Exposure controls:
8.2.1Appropriate engineering controls: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
8.2.2 Individual protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:
Eye/face protection: Face shield and safety glasses.
Hand protection: Handle with gloves.
Body protection: Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respiratory protection: Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate use a full-face respirator with multi-purpose combination (US) or type ABEK (EN 14387) respirator cartridges as a backup to engineering controls. If the respirator is the sole means of protection, use a full-face supplied air respirator. Use respirators and components tested and approved under appropriate government standards such as NIOSH (US) or CEN (EU).
Thermal hazards: Wear suitable protective clothing to prevent heat.
8.2.3 Environmental exposure controls: Avoid discharge into the environment.
According to local regulations, Federal and official regulations.

Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity: The substance is stable under normal storage and handling conditions.
10.2 Chemical stability: Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions: Vapors may form explosive mixture with air.
10.4 Conditions to avoid: Incompatible materials. Heat, flames and sparks.
10.5 Incompatible materials: Strong oxidizing agents.
10.6 Hazardous decomposition products: Carbon oxides.

Disposal considerations

13.1 Waste treatment methods: Due to the high risk of contamination recycling/recovery is not recommended. Waste disposal in accordance with regulations (most probably controlled incineration).
