First-aid measures

Skin exposure
Remove contaminated clothes. Wash skin with large volumes of water (or soap and water).
If irritation persists, or any sign of tissue damage is apparent, obtain medical advice immediately.

Eye exposure
Irrigate copiously with water for at least 10 minutes. Obtain medical advice if any irritation or evidence of tissue damage persists.

Accidental ingestion
Rinse mouth with water. Give up to one tumbler (half pint) of milk or water. Obtain medical advice immediately.

Excessive inhalation
Remove the individual to fresh air and keep at rest. Obtain medical advice immediately.

General comments
As in all cases of potential poisoning, supportive therapy is of the utmost importance.

Fire-fighting measures

In the event of fire, dry powder, carbon dioxide, alcohol-resistant foam or water mist extinguishers should be used. Avoid inhalation of smoke and fumes. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Gloves (natural rubber if possible) should be worn when handling spillages. No smoking. Avoid naked flames or other potential sources of ignition (eg. electrical equipment).
Avoid skin contamination and inhalation of vapour.
Good personal washing routines should be followed after accidental releases.
Ensure adequate ventilation in working areas following accidental releases.

Environmental precautions
Do not discharge directly into drains, into soil or into the aquatic environment.

Methods for cleaning up
Any absorbent used for cleaning up spillage should be disposed promptly, preferably by incineration as some cases of spontaneous combustion of rags soaked with similar materials have been reported.
Gross spillages should be contained by the use of sand or inert powder, and disposal of this should be in accordance with Government Regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Wear suitable gloves (natural rubber is the preferred material) and eye/face protection.
No smoking. Avoid naked flames or other potential sources of ignition (eg. electrical equipment).
Do not subject to unnecessarily high temperature during processing.
Do not ingest or apply to the skin as such. Good personal washing routines should be followed.
Maintain adequate ventilation in working areas.

Storage
It is good general practice to store in closed, preferably full, containers away from heat sources, and protected from extremes of temperature. Do not re-use the empty container.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure controls
Do not subject to unnecessarily high temperature during processing.
Maintain adequate ventilation in working areas.

Personal protection
- Respiratory protection: where ventilation may be inadequate, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
- Hand protection: where gloves are indicated, natural rubber is the preferred material.
- Eye protection: where eye protection is indicated, safety goggles are recommended.
- Skin protection: depending on working situation these should include wearing protective clothing, which will also limit the odour contamination of personal clothing. Good personal washing routines should be followed.

Stability and reactivity

Good stability at standard temperature. Avoid temperatures above or near to the flash point.
Do not heat closed containers.
No reaction known with water. Contact with water or storage under recommended conditions for one year should not produce dangerous decomposition products.
Avoid contact with oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product: when being disposed of in its unused and uncontaminated state should be treated as a hazardous waste according to EC Directive 2008/98/EC. Any disposal practices must be in compliance with all national and provincial laws and any municipal or local by-laws governing hazardous waste.

Contaminated packaging: for used, contaminated and residual materials additional evaluations may be required.
Do not dump into any sewers, on the ground, or into any body of water.
