First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General information:
In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical advice (show label or SDS where possible).
After contact with the eyes:
Rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical advice in case of continuous irritation.
After contact with the skin:
Wash with plenty of water or water and soap. In the event of a visible skin change or other complaints, seek medical advice (show
label or SDS where possible).
After inhalation:
Provide fresh air.
After swallowing:
Give several small portions of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Any relevant information can be found in other parts of this section.
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Further toxicology information in section 11 must be observed.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
alcohol-resistant foam , carbon dioxide , water mist , sprinkler system , sand , extinguishing powder .
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons:
water jet .
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Risk of hazardous gasses or fumes in the event of fire. Exposure to combustion products may be a health hazard! Hazardous
combustion products: toxic and very toxic fumes .
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire fighting:
Use respiratory protection independent of recirculated air. Keep unprotected persons away.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Secure the area. Wear personal protection equipment (see section 8). Keep unprotected persons away. If material is released
indicate risk of slipping. Do not walk through spilled material.
Environmental precautions
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil. Close leak if possible without risk. Contain any fluid that
runs out using suitable material (e.g. earth). Retain contaminated water/extinguishing water. Dispose of in prescribed marked
containers. Inform authorities if substance leaks into surface waters, sewerage or ground.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Take up mechanically and dispose of according to local/state/federal regulations. Do not flush away with water. For small
amounts: Absorb with a neutral (non-acidic / non-basic) liquid binding material such as diatomaceous earth and dispose of
according to government regulations. For large amounts: Liquids may be recovered using suction devices or pumps. If flammable,
only air driven or properly rated electrical equipment should be used. Clean any slippery coating that remains using a detergent /
soap solution or another biodegradable cleaner. Silicone fluids are slippery; spills are a safety hazard. Apply sand or other inert
granular material to improve traction.
Further information:
Exhaust vapours. Eliminate all sources of ignition. Consider explosion protection.
Reference to other sections
Relevant information in other sections has to be considered. This applies in particular for information given on personal protective
equipment and on disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Precautions for safe handling:
Ensure adequate ventilation. Must be syphoned off in situ. Spilled substance increases risk of slipping. Avoid formation of
aerosols. In case of aerosol formation special protective measures are required (exhausting by suction, respiratory protection).
Keep away from incompatible substances in accordance.
Precautions against fire and explosion:
Product may release ethanol. Flammable vapors may accumulate and form explosive mixtures with air in containers, process
vessels, including partial, empty and uncleaned containers and vessels, or other enclosed spaces. Keep away from sources of
ignition and do not smoke. Take precautionary measures against electrostatic charging. Cool endangered containers with water.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Conditions for storage rooms and vessels:
Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Advice for storage of incompatible materials:
Observe local/state/federal regulations.
Further information for storage:
Store in a dry and cool place. Protect against moisture. Store container in a well ventilated place.
Storage class (TRGS 510): 10
Specific end use(s)

Ethanol (CAS no. 64-17-5): Refer to Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances "TRGS 900" for more details on the German

Exposure controls
Exposure in the work place limited and controlled
General protection and hygiene measures:
Observe standard industrial hygiene practices for the handling of chemical substances. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling.
Personal protection equipment:
Respiratory protection
If inhalative exposure above the occupational exposure limit cannot be excluded, adequate respiratory protection equipment must
be used. Suitable respiratory equipment: Respirator with a full face mask, according to acknowledged standards such as EN 136.
Recommended Filter type: Gas filter type ABEK (certain inorganic, organic and acidic gases and vapors; ammonia/amines),
according to acknowledged standards such as EN 14387
In case of mist, spray or aerosol exposure wear suitable personal respiratory protection and protective suit. Suitable respiratory
equipment: Respirator with a full face mask, according to acknowledged standards such as EN 136.
Recommended Filter type: Combined filter type ABEK-P2 (certain inorganic, organic and acidic gases and vapors;
ammonia/amines; particles), according to acknowledged standards such as EN 14387
Observe the equipment manufacturer's information and wear time limits for respirators.
Eye protection
Recommendation: protective goggles .
Hand protection
Protective gloves are required at all times when handling the material, according to recognized standards such as EN374.
Recommended glove types: Protective gloves made of butyl rubber
thickness of the material: > 0,3 mm
Breakthrough time: > 480 min
Recommended glove types: Protective gloves made of nitrile rubber
thickness of the material: > 0,1 mm
Breakthrough time: > 480 min
Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves.
Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion,
and the contact time. Note that, due to the numerous external influences (such as temperature), a chemically resistant protective
glove in daily use may have a service life that is considerably shorter than the measured break through time.
Skin protection
protective clothing .
Exposure to the environment limited and controlled
Prevent material from entering surface waters, drains or sewers and soil.
Further information for system design and engineering measures
Observe national regulatory requirements.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Material that cannot be used, reprocessed or recycled should be disposed of in accordance with Federal, State, and local
regulations at an approved facility. Depending on the regulations, waste treatment methods may include, e.g., landfill or
Uncleaned packaging
Completely discharge containers (no tear drops, no powder rest, scraped carefully). Containers may be recycled or re-used.
Observe local/state/federal regulations. Uncleaned packaging should be treated with the same precautions as the material.
Waste Disposal Legislation Ref.No.(EC)
It is not possible to determine a waste code for this product in accordance with the European Waste Catalogue (EWC) since it is
only possible to classify it according to how it is used by the customer. The waste code is to be determined within the EU in liaison
with the waste-disposal operator.
