First-aid measures

General advice : First aider needs to protect himself. Move out of dangerous area. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.
Skin contact : Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Call a physician immediately.
Eye contact : Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
Ingestion : Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If victim is fully conscious, give a cupful of water. Call a physician immediately.
Inhalation: Call a physician immediately. Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Use oxygen as required, provided a qualified operator is present.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray, Foam, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Dry powder
Extinguishing media which shall not be used for safety reasons: High volume water jet
Product is not combustible under normal conditions.
In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as:
Lead oxides
Carbon monoxide
Carbon dioxide (CO2)
In the event of fire, wear self-contained breathing apparatus.
Use extinguishing measures that are appropriate to local circumstances and the surrounding environment.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Wear personal protective equipment. Unprotected persons must be kept away. Avoid dust formation. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Should not be released into the environment. Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to enter drains or water courses.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
Use mechanical handling equipment.
Pick for disposal in tightly closed containers
Avoid dust formation.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling: Exhaust ventilation at the object is necessary. Do not breathe dust.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Hygiene measures: Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Keep working clothes separately. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. When using do not eat or drink.
Further information on storage conditions: Store in original container. Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Occupational exposure controls
The Personal Protective Equipment must be in accordance with EN standards:respirator EN 136, 140, 149; safety glasses EN 166; protective suit: EN 340, 463, 468, 943-1, 943-2; gloves EN 374, 511; safety shoes EN-ISO 20345.
Avoid dust formation.
Engineering measures
Use with local exhaust ventilation.
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
In the case of dust or aerosol formation use respirator with an approved filter.

Hand protection:
Glove material: Natural Latex
Break through time: > 480 min
Glove thickness: 0,6 mm
Lapren®706
Gloves must be inspected prior to use.
Replace when worn.

Remarks:Supplementary note: The specifications are based on information and tests from similar substances by analogy. Due to varying conditions ( e.g.temperature or other strains) it must be considered that the usage of a chemical protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined in accordance with EN 374. Since actual conditions of practical use often deviate from standardised conditions according EN 374 the glove manufacturer reccomends to use the chemical protective glove in practice not longer than 50% of the recomended permeation time. Manufacturer´s directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types . Suitable gloves tested according EN 374 are supplied e.g. from KCL GmbH, D-36124 Eichenzell, Vertrieb@kcl.de

Eye protection: Safety glasses with side-shields

Skin and body protection:
Wear suitable protective equipment.
Wear as appropriate: Protective suit
Environmental exposure controls: Handle in accordance with local environmental regulations and good industrial practices

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity: Stable under normal conditions.
Chemical stability: >200 °C (decomposition temperature)
Possibility of hazardous reactions: Hazardous polymerisation does not occur.
Incompatible materials: Strong bases, Strong oxidizing agents, Strong acids
Hazardous decomposition products: In case of fire hazardous decomposition products may be produced such as: Lead oxides, Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide (CO2)
