First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures:

General information:

Personal protection for the First Aider.

Take affected persons out of danger area and lay down.

Immediately remove any clothing soiled by the product.

After inhalation:

Supply fresh air. If required, provide artificial respiration. Keep patient warm. Consult doctor if

symptoms persist.

After skin contact:

Immediately wash with water and soap and rinse thoroughly.

Call a doctor immediately.

After eye contact:

Rinse opened eye for several minutes under running water. Then consult a doctor.

After swallowing:

Rinse out mouth and then drink plenty of water.

Do not induce vomiting; call for medical help immediately.

Information for doctor:

Causes severe necroses at prolonged skin-contact. Special risk for the eyes.

The inhalation of product dust may induce damages of the mucous membranes in the upper

respiratory tracts ("Glottis" oedema, that can necessitate intubation). Alleviation of pain. After

ingestion, take care for a immediate dilution with water. Risk of stomach perforation.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures

Control parameters:

Ingredients with limit values that require monitoring at the workplace:

105-60-2 epsilon-caprolactam (dust and vapour):

OES Short-term value: 40 mg/m³

Long-term value: 10 mg/m³

2. Organisational protection measures

Exposure controls

3. Hand protection

Protective gloves

The glove material has to be impermeable and resistant to the product/ the substance/ the


Selection of the glove material on consideration of the penetration times, rates of diffusion and the


Due to missing tests no recommendation to the glove material can be given for the product/ the

preparation/ the chemical mixture.

Material of gloves

Nitrile rubber, NBR

Recommended thickness of the material: ≥ 0.35 mm

Penetration time of glove material

Value for the permeation: Level ≤ 8 h

The exact break trough time has to be found out by the manufacturer of the protective gloves and

has to be observed.

4. Feet protection

Wear suitable footwear.

5. Body protection

Use protective suit.

6. Eye protection

Tightly sealed goggles

Gauze goggles

7. Respiratory protection

In exceptional cases (e.g. exceeding of the air limiting value) respiratory protection is required.

Use dust protection mask or respiratory protection apparatus with filter P2. Observe further

national regulations concerning respiratory protection.
