First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from source of dust and obtain medical attention if
symptoms develop.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water without delay and obtain medical attention
if any symptoms persist.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash thoroughly with water and obtain medical attention if
symptoms develop.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Remove material from mouth. Drink 1 or 2 glasses of water
(or milk). If large amount swallowed or symptoms develop,
obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon and sulphur oxides
together with some soot. The recommended extinguishing
medium is water. Any tanker involved in a fire should be
kept cool with water spray.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Solid: Vacuum clean or moisten and sweep up. Place waste
material in a container for disposal at an approved
landfill site or incinerator. Solution: Absorb spills with
sand or earth. Collect and dispose of as for solids. Wash
away residue or small spillages with low pressure water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid prolonged skin contact. The principle method of
control for the substance should be total enclosure. Where
there is an operator interface, local exhaust ventilation
should be used (where relevant, in a segregated area)
together with personal protection (normal protective
clothing, PVC gloves, dust mask and goggles) as a secondary
precaution.

Storage: Store away from strong oxidisers.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: The substance slowly hydrolyses to the carboxylic acid and
phenol.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Fines and coarse material from granules can be recycled.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Spillages may be neutralised with 2% sodium perborate
solution.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a landfill site is possible. Residues from
spillages may be discharged into water systems after
dilution with water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be incinerated in an approved facility.
Waste gas purification to remove sulphur oxides should be
used.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is biodegradable but to reduce impact on a
system, prior dilution is advised.

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

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable at the concentration available to the
public.

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