First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: After inhalation of vapours, fresh air and/or oxygen should
be delivered and a doctor should be consulted.
Emergency measure - Eyes: In the case of eye contact, eyes must be rinsed thoroughly
with water. If there are any indications of impaired vision
or other irregularities, an ophthalmologist should be
Emergency measure - Skin: In the case of skin contact, the respective part should be
washed immediately with soap and water. If irritation
should continue, a dermatologist should be consulted.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: In the case of swallowing, do not initialise vomiting. A
vomiting person, however, should be positioned in the
recovery position and a doctor should be consulted

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Applicable fire-extinguishing agents include:

Foam, carbon dioxide, powder, fog

A massive water jet should not be applied.

Product arising from burning: A fire will generate steam, carbon monoxide, and carbon

Protective equipment: In the case of a fire, only atmosphere-independent
protection gear and heat-resistant protective suits must be

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: In the case of a leakage, the respective area must be sealed
off. Access may only be granted to authorized personnel.

Any work with ignition sources must be stopped


The explosion hazard must be determined by means of
gasdetection and measuring devices.

In the case of a leakage, the substance leaked should be
controlled by means of sand and/or oil barriers.

Penetration into the sewage system should be prevented by
means of sealing cushions. In the case of a large leak, the
substance should be pumped into a different container.
Smaller leakages ought to be collected by means of oil-
binding agents and stored in clearly marked appropriate
containers. Disposal must take place according to the
Recycling and Waste Disposal Act and its respective
regulations, e.g. at a licensed incineration facility.

As to the prescribed protection gear, c.f. 'Handling'.

Handling and storage

Handling: When handling the substance, skin and eye contact have to

be prevented; Inhalation of vapours should be excluded.

The substance should only be handled within closed

systems. The work areas will have to be clearly zoned and
identified by warnings and safety signs. Access to these
work areas will only be granted to authorized personnel.
Vapours and aerosols that can form must be extracted

safely (in an explosion-proof manner) directly at the

point of origin. The extracted air may not be returned

to the working area.

If technical extraction or ventilation measures are not
possible or are insufficient, workers will have to wear
appropriate respirators:

either a filter device containing filter K (concentration
limit must be observed) or a gas mask and breathing
equipment operating independently from the outer atmo-
sphere (cf. BGR 190 "Use of Breathing Equipment").

Even if there is only a risk of short-term skin contact,
tested protective gloves (basic material: fluorocaout-
chouc, 0.4 mm, rupture period > 8 hs at a testing tempe-
rature of 22 °C) must be worn.

If there is a risk of getting splashed with the subs-

tance, fuel-resistant chemical protective clothing plus

a protective mask must also be worn.

The substance can give off extremely flammable vapours.
Electrostatic charges must be prevented by means of
grounding all containers, devices, and pipe systems.

Only explosion-protected operating material, IIB cate-

gory, may be used, and any possible sources of ignition
should be removed.

As basic equipment, all personnel handling the substance
must wear antistatic flame-retarding protective suits.

In any case, conductive safety foot gear is obligatory.

Eating and drinking within the work area is strictly

Keep outdoor clothes separate from working clothes.

After contact with the skin, the affected parts of the body
should be immediately thoroughly cleaned using soap and
water. Contaminated clothing must be changed immediately.
Special skin protection and skin care measures are manda-
tory. A skin protection plan must be drawn up.

At the end of the shift, staff will have to undergo

thorough body cleaning measures (shower).

Storage: Store the substance in leakage-safe secure containers (e.g.
steel drums meeting the specifications laid down in the
Transport Act) which are labelled according to the regula-
tions. When using plastic containers, their respective en-
durance specifications must be considered.

Keep the containers tightly closed and secure them against
falling by taking the appropriate measures.

Avoid residues on the outside of the containers.

Storage facilities will have to be equipped with appropriate
safe ventilation systems.

When storing or handling the substance, the BG Chemie Anti-
Explosion Regulations (BGR 104) must be adhered to. Further-
more TRbF 20 (Storing) must be applied as well as TRGS 514.
Electrostatic charging must be prevented by grounding.
Within storage facilities, all possible sources of ignition
must be eliminated.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The containers must comply with the regulations of the
Transport of Hazardous Materials Regulations. Steel drums or
plastic canisters may be used. The transport volume must
comply with the Transport of Hazardous Material Regulations.
