First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Do not delay. Remove to fresh air. Give artifical
respiration if necessary. Seek medical attention in all
cases. In all cases remove contaminated clothing.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Do not delay, rinse with water for 10 minutes. Seek medical
attention if irritation persists.
Emergency measure - Skin: Do not delay, wash with soap and water. Seek medical
attention if irritation persists.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. Give nothing by mouth. Seek medical
attention and treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon, sulphur and
nitrogen oxides together with some soot. Suitable
extinguishing agents are carbon dioxide, dry chemical
powder, water spray, foam, sand and earth. The substance is
explosive and is highly flammable above 70 deg C; seek
specialist advice. Protective clothing and a self-contained
apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear protective clothing. Collect spilt material using a
vacuum cleaner, approved for use in flammable/explosive
atmospheres, with a high-efficiency filter. Dispose of
waste material by incineration in small quantities (<10

Handling and storage

Handling: Use in a fume cupboard or with local exhaust ventilation.
In the event of inhalation risk, use a full face respirator
with a particulate filter. Wear overalls, dust tight
goggles, tight gauntlet gloves (PVC) and chemical-resistant
safety boots without laceholes.

Storage: Store in a cool dry area out of direct sunlight and away
from acids, flammable products, toxicants, oxidising agents
and highly combustible materials. Avoid shock and sources
of impact.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Substance evolves nitrogen on heating above 70 deg C
forming a tar on self-reaction. Substances of this type
have caused skin sensitisation in workers. If symptoms
occur, remove from contact with all chemicals of this type.

Disposal considerations

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

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The acidity may be neutralised by treatment with sodium
carbonate solution.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be disposed of in small quantities (<10
kg) at an approved facility with waste gas treatment to
remove nitrogen and sulphur oxides.

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

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from polymers is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable when incorporated in a polymer.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Polymers conatining the substance may be disposed of as
domestic waste.
