First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures
General advice:
Call a physician or poison control centre immediately. Move out of dangerous area. Do not leave the victim unattended. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled:
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. If it is suspected that fumes are still present, the rescuer should wear an appropriate mask or self-contained breathing apparatus. If unconscious, place in recovery position and seek medical advice. If not breathing, if breathing is irregular or if respiratory arrest occurs, provide artificial respiration or oxygen by trained personnel. Keep respiratory tract clear. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of skin contact:
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. If on skin, rinse well with water. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

In case of eye contact:
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Small amounts splashed into eyes can cause irreversible tis-sue damage and blindness. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Keep eye wide open while rinsing. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Continue rinsing eyes during transport to hospital. Protect unharmed eye. If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

If swallowed:
Chemical burns must be treated promptly by a physician. Take victim immediately to hospital. Rinse mouth with water. Give small amounts of water to drink. DO NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by a physician or poison control center. If vomiting occurs, the head should be kept low so that vomit does not enter the lungs. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If unconscious, place in recovery position and get medical attention immediately. Keep respiratory tract clear. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. If symptoms persist, call a physician.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Basic aid, decontamination, symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting:
In a fire or if heated, a pressure increase will occur and the container may burst. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Hazardous combustion products:
Carbon dioxide (CO2), Carbon monoxide, Oxides of phosphorus

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

Further information:
Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
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. Do not breathe vapours, aerosols. Provide adequate ventilation. In case of inadequate ventilation wear respiratory protection. Use personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions:
Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers. Prevent product from entering drains. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. If the product contaminates rivers and lakes or drains inform respective authorities.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up:
Move containers from spill area. Stop leak if safe to do so. Dilute with water. Soak up with inert absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, universal binder, sawdust). Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. Dispose of wastes in an approved waste disposal facility.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use. Persons susceptible to skin sensitisation problems or asthma, allergies, chronic or recurrent respiratory disease should not be employed in any process in which this mixture is being used. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away from alkalis. Do not breathe vapours/dust. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Do not smoke. Avoid spark promoters. Ground/bond container and equipment. These alone may be insufficient to remove static electricity. Dispose of rinse water in accordance with local and national regulations. The product is registered with strictly controlled conditions as defined in Article 17(3) or 18(4) of regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006 (REACH Regulation) 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.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
Normal measures for preventive fire protection.

Hygiene measures:
General industrial hygiene practice. When using do not eat or drink. When using do not smoke. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers
Observe label precautions. 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 containers sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened must be carefully resealed and kept up-right to prevent leakage. Store in a corrosion resistant stainless steel container with a resistant inner liner. Electrical installations / working materials must comply with the technological safety standards.

Advice on common storage:
Keep away from alkalis.

Further information on storage stability:
Stable under recommended storage conditions.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Control parameters:
Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values.

Exposure controls
Engineering measures
If user operations generate dust, fumes, gas, vapour or mist, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation or other engineering controls to keep worker exposure to airborne contaminants below any recommended or statutory limits.
Personal protective equipment
