Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

For non emergency personnel:

Protective Equipment

Use personal protection recommended below

Emergency Procedures

Evacuate the spill area safely to permit authorised personnel to handle the spill.

For Emergency Responders

Emergency responders must wear the proper personal protective equipment (and have appropriate fire-suppression equipment) suitable for the situation to which they are responding.

Environmental precautions:

Keep out of drains and watercourses. Contain the spilled material by bunding.

Methods and material for containment and cleaning up:

Contain large spills with dikes and transfer the material to appropriate containers for reclamation or disposal. Absorb remaining material or small spills with an inert material and then place in achemical waste container. Flush spill area with water

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling:

Protective measures

Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practices as mentioned below. These practices include using appropriate personal protection, avoiding unnecessary exposure and removal of material from eyes, skin and clothing. Do not eat, drink or smoke when handling this product Wash thoroughly after handling, avoid breathing vapour or mist. Emptied containers retain vapour and product residue. Observe all recommended safety precautions until container is cleaned, reconditioned or destroyed. The reuse of this material's container for non-industrial purposes is prohibited and any reuse must be in consideration of the data provided in this material safety data sheet.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods


Methods of disposal

The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever

possible. All local and national regulations should be followed. Consult regulatory officials for disposal requirement. For small quantities neutralize with lime or soda ash and flush away with plenty of water. For large quantities send to special waste disposal system and burn inproper incinerator. This product should not be dumped in public storage and sewers / waterways. Dispose of surplus and non-recyclable products via a licensed waste disposal contractor. For disposal within the EC, the appropriate code according to the European Waste List (EWL) should be used. It is among the tasks of the polluter to assign the waste to waste codes

Hazardous waste

The classification of the product meets the criteria for a hazardous waste as per Annex III of DIRECTIVE 2008/98/EC


Methods of disposal

The generation of waste should be avoided or minimised wherever possible. Waste packaging should be recycled. Incineration or landfill should only be considered when recycling is not feasible

Special precautions

This material and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues. Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers
