First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If exposure to vapour, mists or fumes caused drowsiness,
headache, blurred vision or irritation, remove immediately
to fresh air. Keep patient warm and at rest. If any symptoms
persist, obtain medical advice.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Immediately flush with copious amounts of water for at least
15 minutes. If irritation persists seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash materials off the skin with soap and water. If
irritation persists seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam and dry chemical powder. Carbon dioxide, sand or earth
may be used for small fires only.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:

Water in jet. Use of halon extinguishers should be avoided
for environmental reasons.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire. Combustion is likely to give rise to a complex mixture
of airborne solid and liquid particulates and gases,
including carbon monoxide and unidentified organic and
inorganic compounds. However, there is no experimental
evidence to support the anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Fight the fire from a safe distance or protected location.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.

Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards.

Clean the spillage area with water and detergent. For large
spills, dike spilled material or otherwise contain the
material to ensure run-off does not reach waterway.

Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in
accordance with local regulations. Containers filled with
waste material must be labelled in the same way as the
original substance containers.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to minimise exposure.

Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the

When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

If oil mist cannot be controlled, a respirator fitted with
an organic vapour filter (for substances with boiling point
greater than 65degC), combined with a particulate pre-filter
should be used. Half masks (EN 149) or valved half masks
(EN 405) in combination with type A2 (EN 141) and P2/3 (EN
143) pre-filters may be considered.

The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a

Storage: Store in a segregated and approved area in containers
designed for use.

Keep in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Use properly
labelled and closeable containers. Avoid direct sunlight,
heat sources and strong oxidising agents. Keep containers
tightly closed when not in use.

For containers and container linings, use mild steel or
high density polyethylene. Avoid PVC.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Marine bulk tanks and isotanks, road tanks.

Small scale tankage or transported via pipeline, road and

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it
may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance is not
classified as "dangerous".

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (e.g. sand or soil) may be disposed of by
landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (e.g. oxides of
carbon) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
