First-aid measures

Inhalation: Get medical attention immediately. If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If patient has difficulty in breathing, administer oxygen, keep him calm and protect him from loss of warmth. Information for the physician: Treat with corticoid metered aerosol depending of the amount inhaled.

If appropriate symptoms occur or inhalation of large quantities is suspected, administer cortisone intreavenously in addition. Medical surveillance for at least 48 hours.

Ingestion: Get medical attention immediately. Wash out mouth with water. Move exposed person to fresh air. Keep person warm and at rest. If material is swallowed and the exposed person is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Stop if the exposed person feels sick as vomiting may be dangerous. Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Maintain an open airway. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistbend.

Skin: Any skin coming into contact with the product must be washed immediately with plenty of cold water and soap; washing with 3 % sodium bicarbonate solution would be more effective. Get medical attention.

Eye: Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters: Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained breathing apparatus (SBCA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure mode.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Avoid breathing dust or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Put on appropriate personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions: Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Small spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Dilute with water and mop up if water-soluble or absorb with an inert dry material and place in an appropriate waste container. Dispose off via a licensed waste contactor.

Large spill: Stop leak if without risk. Move containers from spill area. Prevent entry into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Contain and collect spillage with non-combustible, absorbent material e.g. sand, earth, vermiculite or diatomaceous earth and place in container for disposal according to local regulations. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Contaminated absorbent material may pose the same hazard as the spilt product.

Persons with a history of skin sensitization problems or asthma, allergies or chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this product is used. Do not

ingest.  Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing.  Do not breathe vapour or mist. Provide adequate ventilation. Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate, Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product residue and can be hazardous. The product is registered with strictly controlled conditons as defined in Art 17(3) or 18(4) REACH and must therefore be handled as such. Refer to the industry guidance prepared by Concawe/Cefic/EFCG for advice on the confirmation of strictly controlled conditions.


Do not store above the following temperature: 50 °C (122 °F) Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible materials and food and drink. Keep container tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in unlabelled containers. Use

appropriate containment to avoid environmental contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limit values: Not available

Recommended monitoring procedures:

If this product contains ingredients with exposure limits, personal, workplace atmosphere or biological monitoring may be required to

determine the effectiveness of the ventilation or other control measures and/or the necessity to use respiratory protective

equipment. Reference should be made to European Standard EN 689 for methods for the assessment of exposure by inhalation to

chemical agents and national guidance documents for methods for the determination of hazardous substances.

Risk management measures/Occupational exposure controls

Technical measures:  The substance shall be rigorously contained by technical means during its whole lifecycle including manufacture, purification, cleaning and maintenance of equipment, sampling, analysis, loading and unloading of equipment or vessels, waste disposal or purification and storage. Procedural and control technologies shall be used that minimise emission and any resulting exposure. In cases of accident and where waste is generated, procedural and/or control technologies shall be used to minimise emissions and the resulting exposure during purification or cleaning and maintenance procedures. Only properly trained and authorised personnel shall handle the substance. In case of cleaning and maintenance works, special procedures such as purging and washing shall be applied before the system is opened and entered.
