First-aid measures

General information

If breathing is irregular or has stopped, give artificial respiration. In all cases of doubt or if symptoms persist, seek medical attention and show this sheet to the doctor.

Following inhalation: If irritation is happening, move to fresh air until symptoms disappear.

Following skin contact: Remove all contaminated clothing immediately and wash affected skin area with soap and water.

Following eye contact: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower lids. Any contact lens must be removed. Get medical attention even if the injury appears mild.

Following ingestion: First immediately rinse your mouth several times with water. Should the product be swallowed, take 2 – 3 glasses of water for dilution. Do not induce vomiting. Stay calm and seek medical advice.

Self-protection of the first aider: Wear protective gloves and eye protection. No specific antidote exists. The product is acidic (pH 2.5) and is partly soluble in water. Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Water, carbon dioxide, dry powder.

Use water spray to cool product containers and tanks near the fire.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: No information available

Hazardous combustion products:

-A fire will often produce a thick black smoke. Exposure to decomposition products may be hazardous to health.

- Do not breathe in smoke.

- In the event of a fire, the following may be formed: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), high concentration of unburned vapors.

Advice for fire-fighters: Do not inhale smoke from the fire. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non-emergency personnel

Small quantities (< 5 l):

- Wear rubber gloves and suitable eye and face protection. If there is inadequate ventilation, a suitable organic vapours filter mask or NIOSH approved respirator must be worn.

- Cover contaminated area with absorbent (saw dust, peat, sand etc.).

- Take up absorbent and place in closed container.

- Transport to approved landfill or incinerator.

Large quantities (> 5 l):

-First evacuate workers present in the area and then take the same actions as described above.

For emergency responders

Personal protective equipment:  Same as for non-emergency personnel

Environmental precautions: Prevent any material from entering drains or waterways.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:  Contain and control the leaks or spills such as sand, earth, saw dust, peat in drums for waste disposal. Clean preferably with a detergent.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Always wash hands after handling. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re‐using.

Recommended equipment and procedures:

- For personal protection, see section on exposure control

-  Observe precautions stated on label and also industrial safety regulations.

-  Avoid inhaling vapors.

-  Avoid skin and eye contact with this mixture.

Prohibited equipment and procedures:

No smoking, eating or drinking in areas where the liquid pyrolytic sugar is used.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Technical measures and storage conditions:

- Keep containers tightly closed and store at temperatures below 55°C in a well ventilated area.

- The product contains compounds that may either consume oxygen creating an under pressure in the container; or may emit vapors to create an overpressure in the container.

Packaging materials:

- Recommended storage materials are stainless steel, plastics (PETE, PP, HDPE).

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protection measures, such as personal protective equipment:

-Use personal protective equipment that is clean and has been properly maintained.

- Store personal protective equipment in a clean place, away from the work area. Never eat, drink or smoke during use.

- Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re‐using.

-Ensure that there is adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.

Eye / face protection:

- Avoid contact with eyes.

- Use eye protectors designed to protect against liquid splashes.

- Before handling, wear safety goggles with protective side’s accordance with standard EN166.

- Prescription glasses are not considered as protection.

-  Individuals wearing contact lenses should wear prescription glasses during work where they may be exposed.

- Provide eyewash stations in facilities where the product is handled constantly.

Hand protection:

- Use suitable protective gloves that are resistant to chemical agents in accordance with standard EN374.

Body protection:

- Avoid skin contact.

- In the event of substantial spatter, wear liquid‐tight protective clothing against chemical risks (type 6) in accordance with EN13034 or (type 3) in accordance with EN14605 to prevent skin contact.

- Work clothing worn by personnel shall be laundered regularly.

- After contact with the product, all parts of the body that have been soiled must be washed.

Respiratory protection:

- Avoid breathing vapours.

- If the ventilation is insufficient, wear appropriate breathing apparatus such as mask with anti‐gas and vapour filter(s) (Combined filters) in accordance with standard EN14387: A1 (Brown).

Stability and reactivity


Avoid high temperatures. Above 100°C polymerization takes place under formation of harmful vapors.

Chemical stability : This substance is stable under the recommended handling and storage conditions in handling and storage

Possibility of hazardous reactions: Heating above 100 °C: polymerization may occur with release of harmful fumes.

Conditions to avoid: Avoid heating above 100°C.

Incompatible materials:  no data available

Hazardous decomposition products

The thermal decomposition at temperatures higher than 150°C may release/form: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and harmful fumes.

Disposal considerations

Proper waste management of the mixture and/or its container must be determined in accordance with Directive 2008/98/EC.

Waste treatment methods:  Do not pour into drains or waterways.


- Waste management is carried out without endangering human health, without harming the environment and, in particular without risk to water, air, soil, plants or animals.

- Recycle or dispose of waste in compliance with current legislation, preferably via a certified collector or company.

- Do not contaminate the ground or water with waste, do not dispose of waste into the environment.

Soiled packaging:

- Empty container completely. Keep label(s) on container.
