First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
Immediately remove contaminated clothing. If danger of loss of consciousness, place patient in
recovery position and transport accordingly. Apply artificial respiration if necessary. First aid
personnel should pay attention to their own safety.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open. If irritation
develops, seek medical attention.
On ingestion:
Rinse mouth immediately and then drink plenty of water, induce vomiting, seek medical attention.
Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms: The most important known symptoms and effects are described in the labelling (see
section 2) and/or in section 11., Further symptoms are possible
Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, foam, carbon dioxide
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
nitrogen oxides, carbon oxides
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire.
Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.
Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent
systems.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation.
Environmental precautions
Do not empty into drains.
Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Allow to solidify and sweep/shovel up.
For large amounts: Allow to solidify and sweep/shovel up.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. When handling heated product, vapours of the
product should be ventilated, and respiratory protection used.
Protection against fire and explosion:
Sources of ignition should be kept well clear.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Segregate from acids and acid forming substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.
Storage stability:
Storage duration: 24 Months
From the data on storage duration in this safety data sheet no agreed statement regarding the
warrantee of application properties can be deduced.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters
Components with occupational exposure limits
No occupational exposure limits known.
PNEC
freshwater: 0.017 mg/l
marine water: 0.0017 mg/l
intermittent release: 0.17 mg/l
STP: 199.5 mg/l
sediment (freshwater): 0.0782 mg/kg
sediment (marine water): 0.00782 mg/kg
soil: 0.005 mg/kg
oral (secondary poisoning):
No PNEC oral derived, as accumulation in organisms is not to be expect.
Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A) Combination filter for gases/vapours of
organic compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2)
Hand protection:
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6,
corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Suitable materials short-term contact and/or splashes (recommended: At least protective index 2,
corresponding > 30 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374)
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
nitrile rubber (NBR) - 0.4 mm coating thickness
polyvinylchloride (PVC) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in
practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work
clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
Corrosion to metals: Corrosive effects to metal are not anticipated.
Formation of
flammable gases:
Remarks: Forms no flammable gases in the
presence of water.
Chemical stability
The product is stable if stored and handled as prescribed/indicated.
Possibility of hazardous reactions
Strong exothermic reaction with acids. May react with oxidizing agents. Reacts with alkali metals.
May evolve hydrogen gas. If product is heated above decomposition temperature toxic vapours may
be released. Heating may cause an explosion.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid extreme temperatures.
Incompatible materials
Substances to avoid:
alkali or alkaline-earth metal, strong oxidizing agents, strong acids
Hazardous decomposition products
Hazardous decomposition products:
Incomplete combustion results in formation of toxic gases, containing mainly carbon monoxide and
carbon dioxide., carbon oxides, nitrogen oxides, The substances/groups of substances mentioned
can be released in case of fire.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Incinerate in suitable incineration plant, observing local authority regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for
recycling after being thoroughly cleaned.
