First-aid measures

4.1 Description of first aid measures

General advice:
In the case of an accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advise immediately.
When symptoms persist or in case of doubt seek medical advice.

Protection of first-aiders:
First aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended personal protective equipment when the potential for exposure exists.

If inhaled:
If inhaled, get the person to fresh air.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

In case of skin contact:
Wash with water and soap as a precaution.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.

In case of eye contact:
In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If easy to do, remove contact lens, if worn.
Get medical attention.

If swallowed:
If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Rinse mouth thoroughly with water.


4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Risks: Causes serious eye irritation.


4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:
Water spray
Alcohol-resistant foam
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
Dry chemical

Unsuitable extinguishing media:
None known.


5.2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during fire-fighting: Exposure to combustion products may be a hazard to health.

Hazardous combustion products: Carbon oxides


5.3 Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters:
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use personal protective equipment.

Specific extinguishing methods:
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local cir-cumstances and the surrounding environment.
Use water spray to cool unopened containers.
Remove undamaged containers from fire area if it is safe to do so.
Evacuate area.

Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Personal precautions:
Use personal protective equipment.
Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment recommendations.


6.2 Environmental precautions

Environmental precautions:
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so.
Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers).
Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water.
Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained.


6.3 Methods and material for containment and cleaning up

Methods for cleaning up:
Soak up with inert absorbent material.
For large spills, provide dyking or other appropriate contain-ment to keep material from spreading. If dyked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container.
Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absor-bent.
Local or national regulations may apply to releases and dis-posal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to deter-mine which regulations are applicable.
The SDS provides information regarding certain local or national requirements.

Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

Technical measures:
See Engineering measures under EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION section of the SDS.

Local/Total ventilation:
Use only with adequate ventilation.

Advice on safe handling:
Avoid inhalation of vapour or mist.
Do not swallow.
Do not get in eyes.
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin.
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Take care to prevent spills, waste and minimize release to the environment.

Hygiene measures:
Ensure that eye flushing systems and safety showers are located close to the working place. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.


7.2 Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage areas and containers:
Keep in properly labelled containers. Store in accordance with the particular national regulations.

Advice on common storage:
Do not store with the following product types: strong oxidizing agents

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures:
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas.
Minimize workplace exposure concentrations.

Personal protective equipment:
Eye protection:
Wear the following personal protective equipment: safety goggles

Hand protection:
Material: butyl-rubber
Break through time: > 120 min
Directive: DIN EN 374
Remarks: Choose gloves to protect hands against chemicals depending on the concentration and quantity of the hazardous substance and specific to place of work. For special applications, we recommend clarifying the resistance to chemicals of the aforementioned protective gloves with the glove manufacturer. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

Skin and body protection:
Select appropriate protective clothing based on chemical re-sistance data and an assessment of the local exposure potential.
Skin contact must be avoided by using impervious protective clothing (gloves, aprons, boots, etc).

Respiratory protection:
Use respiratory protection unless adequate local exhaust ven-tilation is provided or exposure assessment demonstrates that exposures are within recommended exposure guidelines.
Filter type: organic vapour type (A)

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Not classified as a reactivity hazard.

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.

Possibility of hazardous reactions:
Hazardous reactions: Can react with strong oxidizing agents.

Conditions to avoid: None known.

Incompatible materials:
Materials to avoid: oxidizing agents

Hazardous decomposition products: no hazardous decomposition products are known.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods (product):
Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
According to the European Waste Catalogue, Waste Codes are not product specific, but application specific.
Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.

Waste treatment methods (contaminated packaging):
Empty containers should be taken to an approved waste handling site for recycling or disposal.
If not otherwise specified: Dispose of as unused product.
