First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse thoroughly with water. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water. Seek medical attention if

irritation develops.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Carbon dioxide and foam may be used.

Water spray may be used but care should be taken as the

substance reacts violently with water (cf. 2.3.5).

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,

nitrogen and sulfur and some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Isolate spillage. Wash with water to produce a less

hazardous product. Dispose of contaminated water by

adsorbtion on  an inert substance and incineration at a

suitable facility in accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions when handling potentially

dangerous (see 2.3.4, 2.3.5) organic chemicals. Solvent

proof gloves, face shield and respiratory protection should

be worn.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place.

Contact with moisture may lead to a build up of carbon

dioxide pressure.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Exposure to xylene vapour and isocyanate indicates a risk to

respiratory systems.

Chemical reaction with water: Reacts violently with water to liberate carbon dioxide.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Reaction with excess water converts the substance to a more

stable and potentially less hazardous product with

liberation of carbon dioxide. Care should be taken as the

reaction is potentially violent.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method at a suitable facility. Waste gas

treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen and sulfur should be


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
