4.1 Description of first aid measures
General advice Call a physician or poison control center immediately. Remove
contaminated clothing immediately and dispose of safely.
Inhalation In the case of generation of gas (toxic vapours) remove the victim out
of the danger zone using a self-contained breathing apparatus. If
symptoms persist, call a physician. Move to fresh air. Keep patient
warm and at rest.
Skin contact After contact with skin, wash immediately with plenty of water.
Eye contact An eye specialist must be consulted immediately: Instillation of local
anesthetic drops e.g. 1% Amethocaine Hydrochloride eye drops. Give
analgesics as necessary.
Ingestion Do NOT induce vomiting. Rinse out mouth and give water in small sips
to drink. Call a physician or poison control center immediately.
4.2 Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Symptoms Skin, eye and mucous membrane irritation
4.3 Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Risks Risk of stomach perforation. Risk of pulmonary oedema.
Treatment Initial treatment: symptomatic. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed.
In case of ingestion gastric lavage should be considered in cases of
significant ingestions only within the first 2 hours. However, the
application of activated charcoal and sodium sulphate is always
advisable. There is no specific antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media
Suitable high-expansion foam, Dry chemical, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Water
Unsuitable medium expansion foam
5.2 Special hazards arising
from the substance or
mixture
In the event of fire the following may be released:, Oxides of
phosphorus, Carbon monoxide (CO)
Water is suitable, but initially a violent flame and smoke formation must
be expected.
Reactions with water liberate hazardous gas., phosphorus pentoxide,
Hydrogen chloride (HCl)
5.3 Advice for firefighters
Special protective
equipment for firefighters
In the event of fire and/or explosion do not breathe fumes. In the event
of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information Contain the spread of the fire-fighting media. Do not allow run-off from
fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.

Exposure controls / personal protection

This substance is handled under Strictly Controlled Conditions in accordance with REACH regulation Article 17(3) for on-site isolated intermediates and, in case the substance is transported to other sites for further processing, the substance should be handled at these sites under the Strictly Controlled Conditions as specified in REACH regulation Article 18(4). Site documentation to support safe handling arrangements including the selection of engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment controls in accordance with risk-based management systems is available at each manufacturing site.

8.2 Exposure controls
Respiratory protection Breathing apparatus in the event of aerosol or mist formation.
Wear a compressed air respirator (continuous flow) conforming to
European norm EN14594 or EN14563-1 or equivalent or an organic
gas and vapour filter mask (protection factor 20) conforming to
EN136 Type A filter or equivalent.
Respiratory protection should only be used to control residual risk of
short duration activities, when all reasonably practicable steps have
been taken to reduce exposure at source e.g. containment and/or
local extract ventilation. Always follow respirator manufacturer's
instructions regarding wearing and maintenance.
Hand protection Please observe the instructions regarding permeability and
breakthrough time which are provided by the supplier of the gloves.
Also take into consideration the specific local conditions under which
the product is used, such as the danger of cuts, abrasion, and the
contact time.
Wash gloves when contaminated. Dispose of when contaminated
inside, when perforated or when contamination on the outside cannot
be removed. Wash hands frequently and always before eating,
drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
Material Nitrile rubber
Rate of permeability > 480 min

374.
Eye protection Wear goggles (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 5 or equivalent)
and faceshield (conforming to EN166, Field of Use = 3 or
equivalent).
Skin and body protection Wear standard coveralls and Category 3 Type 4 suit.
If there is a risk of significant exposure, consider a higher protective
type suit.
Wear two layers of clothing wherever possible. Polyester/cotton or
