First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air, treat symptomatically. Obtain medical advice as necessary.
Eyes: Flush immediately with water for at least 15 minutes while holding eyelids open. If irritation persists, repeat flushing. Get immediate medical attention.
Skin: Immediately flush with plenty of water. If symptoms persist call a physician.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. If conscious, wash out mouth and give water to drink. Get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: The substance would not be expected to burn unless all the water has boiled away. Keep containers cool by spraying with water.

Recommended extinguising media: carbon dioxide, water spray and dry powder.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon and
nitrogen). However, there is no experimental evidence to support the anticipated combustion products.

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage:
Personal precautions:
Restrict access to area as appropriate until clean-up operations are complete. Ensure clean-up is conducted by trained personnel only. Ventilate spill area if possible. Do not touch spilled material. Stop or reduce any leaks if it is safe to do so.

Wear standard protective clothing for example nitrile or PVC gauntlet gloves and chemical splash goggles. If significant mists or aerosols are generated a full-face respirator with an organic vapour cartridge with a dust/mist pre-filter or supplied air be used. If respiratory protection is required
institute a complete respiratory protective program including selection, fit testing, maintenance and inspection .

Notify appropriate government, occupational health and safety and environmental authorities.

Methods for cleaning up:
Small spills: Soak up with absorbent material. Place residues in a suitable, covered, properly labelled container. Wash affected area.
Large spills: Contain liquid using absorbent material, by digging trenches or by diking. Reclaim into recovery or salvage drums or tank truck for proper disposal. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water. Contact an approved waste hauler for disposal of contaminated recovered material.
Dispose of material in compliance with local regulations.

Environmental precautions:
Do not contaminate surface water. If drains, streams, soil or sewers become contaiminated, notify local authority.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374
Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368
Eye protection to Standard EN166

When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be used.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area in suitably labelled containers.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: UN approved containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Use of engineering controls, such as closed systems and general ventilation with local exhaust ventilation will minimise potential expousre.
Where there is potential for exposure this is prevented by use of appropriate PPE and RPE. Good industrial practices and hygiene will also minimise any potential expousre.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: Stable under normal conditions of use.
Hazardous polymerisation: Will not occur.
Conditions to avoid: Extremes of temperature.
Materials to avoid: Strong bases, contact with stong oxidisers may generate heat, fires, explosions and/or toxic vapours.
Hazardous decomposition products: Oxides of carbon and nitrogen.

Dust explosion: Not applicable as the substance is a liquid.
Danger other than fire: None known
Chemical reaction with water: None

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically or technically feasible, and such waste material will be disposed of release to the waste water treatment plant. In principle, it may be possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages mixed with inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
nitrogen oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However, adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be unlikely.
