First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air, rest and keep under observation.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash thoroughly with water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash thoroughly with water. If irritation occurs, seek
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Wash out mouth thoroughly with water and give water to
drink. If a large amount swallowed, seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Combustion products may contain carbon,and nitrogen oxides
together with soot and hydrogen chloride and, possibly,
some dioxin-like products. Water, carbon dioxide, foam and
dry powder are suitable extinguishing agents. Wear a
self-contained breathing apparatus if a large quantity of
substance is involved.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear gloves, goggles and a face mask. Sweep up spilt
material for disposal by incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: Wear gloves, goggles and a face mask. Weigh out the
substance and add to the solution preparation tank under
well ventilated conditions.

Storage: Store in sealed drums.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Spilt material may be swept up for reuse. The substance may
be recovered by dissolving in a chlorinated solvent,
filtered and MG 1 precipitated out by addition of aliphatic
solvent.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance has no known hazardous effects and as result
neutralisation is not necessary.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site is possible.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This is the recommended method of disposal. Waste-gas
purification should be used as nitrogen oxides and hydrogen
chloride gas may be formed. Polychlorinated dioxins and
dibenzofurans may also be formed. However, incineration at
1200 deg C for a minimum of two seconds and a large excess
of air should be adequate to ensure complete combustion.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is of low aquatic toxicity and is
biodegradable. However, disposal by this means is not
recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Once incorporated in paper, recovery is not practicable.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not necessary

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Paper containing the substance may be disposed of at an
authorised landfill.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Paper coated with the substance may be incinerated with
household refuse.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The amount of substance coated on paper is negligible.
Furthermore, the substance itself is of low toxicity to
fish and daphnia and is biodegradable.
