First-aid measures

Skin contact: After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. Wash clothing before reuse.
Eye contact: In the case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
Inhalation: Move to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth to mouth. Seek medical advice.
Ingestion: Give 500 ml water to drink. Do not induce vomiting.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: the product is not flammable.
Exposure hazards: high temperatures may liberate toxic or corrosive gases. Do not breathe smoke or vapours. Use water stream to cool containers.
Protective equipment and precautions for firefighters: wear self-contained breahing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: respirator with filter for organic vapour.
Environmental precautions: contain any spill with dikes or absorbents to prevent migration and entry into sewers or streams.
Methods for Clean-up: may require excavation of contaminated soil.

Handling and storage

Handle the substance under strictly controlled conditions according to Article 18(4) of REACH Regulation. Rigorous containment should be achieved.

Handling: handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Storage: keep container tightly closed and dry. Mechanical ventilation is recommended. Local exhaust is needed at source of vapours.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Appropriate engineering controls: use in closed system. The substance/product is registered as intermediate with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 18(4) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH) and must therefore be handle as such.
2. Technical measures/Precautions: use ventilation adequate to keep exposures below recommended exposure limits. Use with local exhaust ventilation.
3. Organisational measures: training in proper use of PPE provided and ensured via an inspection policy.
4. Hand protection: gloves resistant to chemical permeation.
5. Body protection: if skin contact or contamination of clothing is likely, protective clothing should be worn.
6. Eye protection: chemical resistant to chemical permeation.
7. Respiratory protection: approved organic vapour respirator. Approved supplied-air respirator, in case of emergency.

Stability and reactivity

Stability: stable under normal conditions.
Possibility of Hazardous Reactions: none under normal processing.
Conditions to avoid: heat, flames and sparks.
Materials to avoid: keep away from aluminum, magnesium, zinc and their alloys.
Hazardous decomposition products: hydrogen chloride, chlorine, hydrobromic acid, bromine and oxides of carbon.

Disposal considerations

Waste disposal methods: dispose in a safe manner in accordance with local/national regulations.
