First-aid measures

Inhalation              

If experiencing any discomfort, immediately remove from exposure. Light cases: Keep person under surveillance. Get medical attention immediately if symptoms develop. Serious cases: Get medical attention immediately or call for an ambulance.

Skin contact

Immediately remove contaminated clothing and footwear and wash with water and soap. Get medical attention if irritation develops.

Eye contact              

Immediately rinse eyes with much water or eyewash solution, occasionally opening eyelids, until no evidence of chemical remains. Remove contact lenses after a few minutes and rinse again. Get medical attention if irritation persists.

Ingestion              

Inducing vomiting is not recommended. Let the exposed person rinse mouth and drink a few glasses of water or milk. If vomiting does occur, let him/her rinse mouth and drink fluids again. Get medical attention immediately.

      

There is no specific antidote against this substance. Gastric lavage and administration of activated charcoal can be considered. After decontamination, treatment is symptomatic and supportive as indicated.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media              

Dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or foam. Avoid heavy hose streams.

      

Special hazards arising from the substance

The essential breakdown products on combustion are nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

      

Advice for firefighters              

If appropriate, keep fire-exposed containers cool with water spray. Fight fire from maximum possible distance. In case of large fire, firemen should wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures       

Use personal protection equipment depending on the magnitude of the spill. Avoid and reduce mist formation as much as possible.

      

Environmental precautions              

Do not release to the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up       

Spills on the floor or other impervious surface should be swept up with an absorptive material such as universal binder, hydrated lime or absorbent clay. Collect the contaminated absorbent in closable container for disposal. Wet clean area with detergent and water.

Handling and storage

Avoid all contact with the substance. Chemical is an intermediate under strictly controlled conditions and as such not ment to be handled manually, but instead ment to be handled mechanically and consumed in a chemical reaction.

Precautions for safe handling              

Avoid inhalation. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid excessive contact with skin or clothing. Avoid repeated or prolonged contact.

Always wash hands with water and soap after handling.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Storage in refrigerator is recommended.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Chemical is an intermediate under strictly controlled conditions and as such not ment to present any chance for exposure, but instead ment to be consumed in a chemical reaction. However the following can be considered when the possibily for exposure arises, for example at accidents, spills, but also when maintaing and inspecting equipment.

The substance is not expected to be harmful by single exposure. However, it should always be treated with the usual care of handling chemicals.

1. Technical protection measures: used under strictly controlled conditions

2. Organisational protection measures: used under strictly controlled conditions

3. Hand protection: Wear chemical resistant gloves such as barrier laminate, butyl rubber, nitrile rubber or viton if much manual labour with the substance is required.

4. Feet protection: Wear appropriate chemical resistant footwear to avoid skin contact.

5. Body protection: Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing to avoid skin contact.

6. Eye protection: Wear safety glasses. It is recommended to have an emergency eye wash fountain immediately available in the work area, if the possibility of eye contact exists.

7. Respiratory protection

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity              

To our knowledge, the substance has no special reactivities.

Chemical stability              

The substance is stable during normal handling and storage at ambient temperatures.

Possibility of hazardous reactions       

None known.

Conditions to avoid              

Heating of the substance will evolve harmful and irritant vapours.

Disposal considerations

Chemical is an intermediate and as such not ment to be disposed of, but instead ment to be consumed in a chemical reaction.

Remains and unclean packagings should be treated as hazardous material. Waste can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Disposal of waste and packagings must always be in accordance with all applicable local regulations.
