First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice
First aider needs to protect himself.
After inhalation: fresh air. Call in physician.
After skin contact: wash off with plenty of water. Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If available swab with polyethylene glycol 400. Call a physician immediately.
After eye contact: rinse out with plenty of water. Immediately call in ophthalmologist. Remove contact lenses.
After swallowing: make victim drink water (two glasses at most), avoid vomiting (risk of perforation). Call a physician immediately. Do not attempt to neutralise.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Risk of blindness!
Irritation and corrosion, Cough, Shortness of breath, Nausea, Vomiting

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
No information available.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.
Unsuitable extinguishing media
For this substance/mixture no limitations of extinguishing agents are given.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Not combustible.
Ambient fire may liberate hazardous vapours.
Fire may cause evolution of:
hydrogen iodide

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Further information
Suppress (knock down) gases/vapours/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Advice for non-emergency personnel: Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Avoid substance contact. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate the danger area, observe emergency procedures, consult an expert.
Advice for emergency responders: Protective equipment see section 8.

Environmental precautions
Do not let product enter drains.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Cover drains. Collect, bind, and pump off spills. Observe possible material restrictions (see sections 7 and 10).
Take up with liquid-absorbent and neutralising material (e.g. Chemizorb® H⁺, Merck Art. No. 101595). Dispose of properly. Clean up affected area.

Reference to other sections
Indications about waste treatment see section 13.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
Technical measures and appropriate working operations should be given priority over the use of personal protective equipment.

Individual protection measures
Protective clothing needs to be selected specifically for the workplace, depending on concentrations and quantities of the hazardous substances handled. The chemical resistance of the protective equipment should be enquired at the respective supplier.

Eye/face protection
Tightly fitting safety goggles

Hand protection
splash contact:

Glove material: Viton (R)
Glove thickness: 0,70 mm
Break through time: > 120 min

The protective gloves to be used must comply with the specifications of EC Directive 89/686/EEC and the related standard EN374, for example KCL 890 Vitoject® (splash contact).
The breakthrough times stated above were determined by KCL in laboratory tests acc. to EN374 with samples of the recommended glove types.
This recommendation applies only to the product stated in the safety data sheet<(>,<)> supplied by us and for the designated use. When dissolving in or mixing with other substances and under conditions deviating from those stated in EN374 please contact the supplier of CE-approved gloves (e.g. KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Internet: www.kcl.de).

Other protective equipment
Acid-resistant protective clothing
Respiratory protection
required when vapours/aerosols are generated.
Recommended Filter type: filter E-(P2)
The entrepeneur has to ensure that maintenance, cleaning and testing of respiratory protective devices are carried out according to the instructions of the producer. These measures have to be properly documented.

Environmental exposure controls
Do not let product enter drains.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
See section Possibility of hazardous reactions

Chemical stability
Sensitivity to light
Sensitive to air.
Decomposes on exposure to light.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Generates dangerous gases or fumes in contact with:
Metals
Gives off hydrogen by reaction with metals.
Exothermic reaction with:
strong alkalis, Strong oxidizing agents

Conditions to avoid
Heating.
Exposure to light.

Incompatible materials
Metals
Contact with metals liberates hydrogen gas.

Hazardous decomposition products
in the event of fire: See section 5.
