First-aid measures


Immediately flush eyes with water and continue washing for several minutes. Obtain medical attention if discomfort persists.


Remove contaminated clothing and shoes, wash before reuse. Rinse affected skin with copious amounts of water, using a mild cleaning agent. Obtain medical attention if contact has been widespread and prolonged, or if irritation persists.


Do not induce vomiting. If the victim is conscious rinse mouth with water and give two glasses of milk or water at once. Obtain medical attention in all cases.


Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration do not give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Obtain medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

General Information:

Vapours may form an explosive mixture with air. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Vapour may be ignited by static sparks, flammable liquid and vapour. Storage tanks are earthed to avoid sparks as points of ignition.

Protective Equipment for Fire-fighters:

Body covering protective clothing, full "turn out" gear

Self contained breathing apparatus.

Extinguishing Media

For Large Fires:

-Use alcohol-type foam or universal-type foams.

For  Small Fires:

-Dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Do not use:

- Water jets

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions:

-Use proper personal protective equipment in an accident and evacuate unnecessary personnel. Eliminate sources of ignition and avoid all contact with material.

Environmental Precautions:

- Prevent from entering sewer system, surface water or soil.

Spills and Leaks

-Absorb small spills with an inert material e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth, then place in a suitable container.

-Dike large spills to contain spill and pump excess material into a suitable container.

- Avoid run off into waterways.

- Remove all sources of ignition and use spark-proof tools.

Handling and storage

Handling precautions:

- Wear recommended personal protection equipment.

- Warn personnel about the dangers of the product.

- Keep container tightly closed.

- Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

- Wash thoroughly after handling.

-Use adequate ventilation.

- Avoid contact with skin or clothes.

- Avoid inhalation or ingestion.

Storage requirements:

- The test material is normally stored in pressurised tanks under nitrogen blanketing, which are fitted with level sensors.

- Tanks are earthed to avoid sparks as points of ignition.

- Delivered in stainless steel iso tankers.

- Store in a cool, dry place.

- Keep away from all sources of ignition.
