First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General information Remove affected person from source of contamination. Get medical attention.

Inhalation Remove person to fresh air and keep comfortable for breathing. Place unconscious person on their side in the recovery position and ensure breathing can take place. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie or belt. When breathing is difficult, properly trained personnel may assist affected person by administering oxygen. If breathing stops, provide artificial respiration. Get medical attention.

Ingestion Move affected person to fresh air and keep warm and at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Loosen tight clothing such as collar, tie or belt. Do not induce vomiting unless under the direction of medical personnel. Rinse nose and mouth with water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Place unconscious person on their side in the recovery position and ensure breathing can take place. Get medical attention.

Skin contact Rinse immediately contaminated clothing and skin with plenty of water before removing clothes. Wash with plenty of water. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.

Eye contact Remove affected person from source of contamination. Remove any contact lenses and open eyelids wide apart. Rinse with water. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media Use fire-extinguishing media suitable for the surrounding fire. Extinguish with alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder or water fog.

Unsuitable extinguishing media
Do not use water jet as an extinguisher, as this will spread the fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards Dust may form explosive mixture with air. Thermal decomposition or combustion products may include the following substances: Toxic and corrosive gases or vapours.

Hazardous combustion products: Thermal decomposition or combustion products may include the following substances: Toxic and corrosive gases or vapours. Carbon monoxide (CO).

Advice for firefighters
Protective actions during firefighting
In case of fire: Evacuate area. No action shall be taken without appropriate training or involving any personal risk. Fight fire from safe distance or protected location. Keep upwind to avoid inhalation of gases, vapours, fumes and smoke. Contain and collect extinguishing water. Avoid the spillage or runoff entering drains, sewers or watercourses. If risk of water pollution occurs, notify appropriate authorities.

Special protective equipment for firefighters
Wear positive-pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and appropriate protective clothing. Firefighter's clothing conforming to European standard EN469 (including helmets, protective boots and gloves) will provide a basic level of protection for chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions No smoking, sparks, flames or other sources of ignition near spillage. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Do not touch or walk into spilled material. Avoid inhalation of dust and contact with skin and eyes. Do not enter storage areas or confined spaces unless adequately ventilated. Use suitable respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Wear protective clothing as described in Section 8 of this safety data sheet.

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions Avoid or minimise the creation of any environmental contamination. Avoid the spillage or runoff entering drains, sewers or watercourses. Environmental Manager must be informed of all major spillages. Spillages or uncontrolled discharges into watercourses must be reported immediately to the Environmental Agency or other appropriate regulatory body.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up Wear protective clothing as described in Section 8 of the SDS. Eliminate all ignition sources if safe to do so. If involved in a fire, shut off flow if it can be done without risk. Provide adequate ventilation. Do not touch or walk into spilled material. To prevent release, place container with damaged side up. Remove spillage with vacuum cleaner or collect with a shovel and broom, or similar. Collect and place in suitable waste disposal containers and seal securely. For waste disposal, see Section 13 of the SDS.
