First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Skin
Wash with soap and water for 20 minutes or until chemical is removed. Remove contaminated clothing. If skin irritation occurs, get medical attention. Launder
contaminated clothing before reuse.

Eyes
Rinse cautiously with water for 30 minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Get medical attention if eye irritation develops or persists..

Inhaled
Remove exposed person to fresh air if adverse effects are observed. If breathing is labored, administer oxygen. If breathing has stopped, apply artificial
respiration. If experiencing respiratory symptoms call a poison center or doctor.

Swallowed
Do NOT induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to a person who is losing consciousness, unconscious or convulsing. Call a poison center or doctor if
exposed or you feel unwell.

Advice for first-aid providers
When providing first aid always protect yourself against exposure to chemicals or blood born diseases by wearing gloves, masks and eye protection. If providing CPR use mouthpieces, resuscitation bags, pocket masks or other ventilation devices. After providing first aid wash your exposed skin with soap and water.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
See section “Toxicological Information”.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Note to physician: Treat symptomatically.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media
CO2, dry chemical, foam, water spray, water fog. Water can be used to cool and protect exposed material

Special hazards arising from substance or mixture
Burning may produce irritating, toxic and obnoxious fumes. Container may rupture in a fire situation. DO NOT USE a solid stream of water. See section “Stability and Reactivity” for additional information.

Advice for firefighters
Wear full protective firegear including self-containing breathing apparatus operated in the positive pressure mode with full facepiece, coat, pants, gloves and boots. Do not direct a solid stream of water on spilled material. Use flooding amounts of water as a fog. Use water to cool containers exposed to fire. Do not release chemically contaminated water into drains, soil or surface water.

Accidental release measures

Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Only trained personnel should be permitted in area. Personal protective equipment must be worn. Ventilate area if spilled in a confined space or other poorly ventilated area. Material on floor may be slippery.

Environmental precautions
Take precautions to avoid release to the environment. Do not flush into surface water, sanitary sewer or ground water system.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Pick up free liquid for recycle and/or disposal. Pump any free liquid into an appropriate closed container. Residual liquid can be absorbed on inert material. Wash spill area with soap and water.

Reference to other sections
See sections “Exposure Controls/Personal Protection” and “Toxicological Information” for additional information.

Handling and storage

Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling
Use with adequate ventilation. Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not discharge into drains or the environment, dispose to an authorized waste collection point. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination. Avoid eye contact. Avoid repeated or prolonged skin contact. When handling, do not eat, drink, or smoke Avoid drinking, tasting, swallowing or ingesting this product. Avoid breathing dust, fume, gas, mist, vapors or spray. Use grounding and bonding connection when transferring material to prevent static discharge, fire and explosion. Use spark-resistant tools. Wash thoroughly after handling. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Do not reuse empty containers. Empty containers retain material residue. Do not cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind or expose containers to heat, flame, spark or other sources of ignition. Dispose of packaging or containers in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations.

Pumping Temperature
Not determined.

Maximum Handling Temperature
70 °C, 158 °F

Maximum Loading Temperature
Not determined.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilites
Take precautions to avoid release to the environment. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. Store separately from incompatible materials. Keep container tightly closed. Do not store in open, unlabeled or mislabeled containers. See section 10 for incompatible materials.

Maximum Storage Temperature
45 °C, 113 °F

Specific end use(s)
End uses are listed in an attached exposure scenario when one is required.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Control parameters
None known.

Other Exposure Limits
None known.

Exposure controls
If use generates a mist or vapor, local exhaust ventilation is recommended. Additional ventilation or exhaust may be required to maintain air concentrations below recommended exposure limits.

Eye/face protection
Safety glasses. If potential for splash or mist exists, wear chemical goggles or faceshield.

Skin protection
Nitrile. Consult clothing/glove manufacturer to determine appropriate type of glove for given situation. Gloves should always be inspected before each use and discarded if they show tears, pinholes, or signs of wear. Use good industrial hygiene practices to avoid skin contact. If contact with the material may occur wear chemically protective gloves.
Long sleeve shirt is recommended. Do not wear rings, watches or similar apparel that could entrap the material and cause a skin reaction. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse.

Respiratory Protection
Use full face respirator with a combination organic vapor and high efficiency filter cartridge if the recommended exposure limit is exceeded. Use self-contained breathing apparatus for entry into confined space, for other poorly ventilated areas and for large spill clean-up sites.

Hygiene Measures
Wash thoroughly after handling this product. Do not eat, drink or smoke when using this product.

Environmental exposure controls
See section “Accidental Release Measures” for details.

Stability and reactivity

Stability and Reactivity

Reactivity
Carefully review all information provided in the following sections.

Chemical stability
Material is normally stable at moderately elevated temperatures and pressures.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Will not occur.

Conditions to avoid
Do not expose to excessive heat, ignition sources, or oxidizing materials.

Incompatible materials
Strong oxidizing agents.

Hazardous decomposition products
Smoke, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, aldehydes and other products of incomplete combustion. Under combustion conditions, oxides of the following elements will be formed: nitrogen, sulfur.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
All disposal practices must be in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations. Do not dispose in landfill.
Empty container retains product residue and can be hazardous. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind or expose containers to heat, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition. Dispose of packaging or containers in accordance with local, regional, national and international regulations.
