First-aid measures

General notes

Self-protection of the first aider.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.
Remove affected person from the danger area and lay down.
Do not leave affected person unattended.
In all cases of doubt, or when symptoms persist, seek medical advice.

Following inhalation
Provide fresh air.
If breathing is irregular or stopped, immediately seek medical assistance and start first aid actions.
Mouth to mouth resuscitation should be avoided. Use alternative methods, preferably with oxygen or
compressed air driven apparatus.

Following skin contact
Wash with plenty of soap and water.
If skin irritation occurs: Get medical advice/attention.

Following eye contact
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.

Following ingestion
Rinse mouth. Do not induce vomiting.
Call a physician immediately.
Notes for the doctor
None.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Death following aspiration.
Irritant to skin.
Narcotic effects.
Vertigo.
Drowsiness.
Dizziness.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Symptoms may develop several hours following exposure; medical observation therefore necessary
for at least 48 hours.
Subsequent observance for pneumonia and pulmonary oedema.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
water spray, alcohol resistant foam, fire extinguishing powder, carbon dioxide (CO2)

Unsuitable extinguishing media
water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
In case of insufficient ventilation and/or in use, may form flammable/explosive vapour-air mixture.
Solvent vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Places which are not ventilated, e.g. unventilated below ground level areas such as trenches, conduits
and shafts, are particularly prone to the presence of flammable substances or mixtures.
Hazardous combustion products
carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), pyrolysis products, toxic

Advice for firefighters
Keep containers cool with water spray.
In case of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes.
Co-ordinate firefighting measures to the fire surroundings.
Do not allow firefighting water to enter drains or water courses.
Collect contaminated firefighting water separately.
Fight fire with normal precautions from a reasonable distance.
Containments may explode when heated.

Special protective equipment for firefighters
use suitable breathing apparatus and suitable protective clothing if risk of contact with substance.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
For non-emergency personnel
Remove persons to safety.
Ventilate affected area.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Avoid breathing mist/vapours/spray.
Wearing of suitable protective equipment (including personal protective equipment referred to under
Section 8 of the safety data sheet) to prevent any contamination of skin, eyes and personal clothing.

For emergency responders
Wear breathing apparatus if exposed to vapours/dust/spray/gases.
Chemical protection suit.

Environmental precautions
Keep away from drains, surface and ground water.
Retain contaminated washing water and dispose of it.
If substance has entered a water course or sewer, inform the responsible authority.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Advice on how to clean up a spill
Collect spillage.
Absorbent material (e.g. sand, diatomaceous earth, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust, etc.).

Appropriate containment techniques
Use of adsorbent materials.
Bunding.
Remove from the water surface (e.g. skimming, sucking).

Other information relating to spills and releases
Place in appropriate containers for disposal.
Ventilate affected area.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Provision of sufficient ventilation.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Avoid breathing mist/vapours/spray.
Handle and open container with care.

Measures to prevent fire as well as aerosol and dust generation
Use local and general ventilation.
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Due to danger of explosion, prevent leakage of vapours into cellars, flues and ditches.
Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting/equipment.
Use only non-sparking tools.

Specific notes/details
Places which are not ventilated, e.g. unventilated below ground level areas such as trenches, conduits
and shafts, are particularly prone to the presence of flammable substances or mixtures.
Vapours are heavier than air, spread along floors and form explosive mixtures with air.

Measures to protect the environment
Avoid release to the environment.

Advice on general occupational hygiene
Do not eat, drink and smoke in work areas.
Wash hands after use.
Preventive skin protection (barrier creams/ointments) is recommended.
Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Explosive atmospheres
Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place.
Use local and general ventilation.
Keep cool.
Protect from sunlight.

Flammability hazards
Keep away from heat, hot surfaces, sparks, open flames and other ignition sources. No smoking.
Take precautionary measures against static discharge.
Ground/bond container and receiving equipment.
Protect from sunlight.

Protect against external exposure, such as
heat

Consideration of other advice
Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs.

Ventilation requirements
Provision of sufficient ventilation.

Specific designs for storage rooms or vessels
Keep in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Packaging compatibilities
Only packagings which are approved (e.g. acc. to ADR) may be used.
