First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10
minutes.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected area with plenty of water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Drink plenty of water. Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam, carbon dioxide, water and dry powder.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (e.g. carbon and nitrogen
oxides and fluorine containing compounds).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn. Fight fire from a safe distance or
protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear eye protection, chemical resistant gloves, protective
clothing and a dust mask capable of adequately controlling
exposure as specified in Section 2.3.10.

Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages with a suitable inert material (e.g. sand ).
Carefully transfer the spillage to waste containers, or use
a sealed industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled with
waste material must be labelled in the same way as the
original containers.

Clean the spillage area with water.

Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by incineration as specified in Section 6.1.03.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure by
ingestion, inhalation, skin and eye contact.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
other than by the use of personal protective equipment, eye
protection (goggles to BS 2092.2), impervious gloves (Mapa
Teired EN 388,420,4121) and protective clothing (Acid Splash
Suit, EN 343 mat'l) should be worn. Protective equipment
should conform to the appropriate international or national
standards.

Furthermore, when respiratory equipment has to be used, it
must be capable of adequately controlling exposure, be
suitable for the purpose and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards (eg. Dusk mask BS Typ 3,
EN149, filtering respirator, Sandstorm SR 90, CE 94,
powdered filtering ketnet (dust) EN146/PHI or air hood and
neck cape).

Storage: Store in a cool, dry place.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Storage should be in double polythene anti-static liners in
fibre kegs/boxes.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance is supplied in double polythene anti-static
liners inside fibre kegs/boxes.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will be used exclusively by industry and
confined to systems that are essentially open and batchwise
industrial operations. Handling of the substance will be by
trained operators, and will be kept to a minimum.


Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration in accordance with local
regulations. In principle, it may be possible to recover
larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent
use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not
hazardous to human health so no neutralisation treatment is
necessary and adequate protection will be worn during normal
handling and when dealing with spillages to ensure possible
exposure to the substance is minimised.


The dust hazard will be minimised by damping down with
water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg. sand) may be disposed of by landfill at
an authorised tip in accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration at a
licensed waste treatment processor in accordance with local
regulations. Stack gases should be scrubbed because noxious
fumes (eg. carbon and nitrogen oxides and fluorine-
containing compounds) could be formed.


Method A:663

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The neat substance should not normally be discharged
directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment.
The substance is not likely to have adverse effects on
sewage treatment systems, following accidental discharge,
because it has been shown not to be unduly toxic to sewage
micro-organisms.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable as the neat substance will not be made
available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable as the neat substance will not be made
available to the public.
