First-aid measures

General advice:
Remove contaminated clothing.
If inhaled:
Keep patient calm, remove to fresh air, seek medical attention.
On skin contact:
Wash thoroughly with soap and water.
On contact with eyes:
Wash affected eyes for at least 15 minutes under running water with eyelids held open, consult an eye
specialist.
On ingestion:
Immediately rinse mouth and then drink 200-300 ml of water, seek medical attention.
Note to physician:
Treatment: Treat according to symptoms (decontamination, vital functions), no known specific
antidote.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:
dry extinguishing media, carbon dioxide, foam
Unsuitable extinguishing media for safety reasons:
water
Specific hazards:
hydrogen chloride (HCl)
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
Environmental precautions:
Discharge into the environment must be avoided.
Methods for cleaning up or taking up:
For large amounts: Pump off product.
For residues: Pick up with suitable absorbent material (e.g. sand, sawdust, general-purpose binder,
kieselguhr). Dispose of absorbed material in accordance with regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling
Ensure thorough ventilation of stores and work areas. Protect against moisture.
Storage
Segregate from alkalies and alkalizing substances.
Further information on storage conditions: Containers should be stored tightly sealed in a dry place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Wear respiratory protection if ventilation is inadequate. Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic
compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)
Hand protection:
Suitable chemical resistant safety gloves (EN 374) also with prolonged, direct contact
(Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN
374): E.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), butyl rubber (0.7 mm) and other
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove
manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g.
temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice
may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)
Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen based on level of activity and exposure.
General safety and hygiene measures:
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with skin and
eyes. Avoid inhalation of vapour. Wearing of closed work clothing is recommended.

Stability and reactivity

Hazardous reactions:
Addition of water leads to increase in temperature. Partly very violent reactions with bases and
numerous organic classes of substances such as alcohols and amines.
Hazardous decomposition products:
hydrogen chloride

Disposal considerations

Must be dumped or incinerated in accordance with local regulations.
A waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) cannot be specified, due to
dependence on the usage.
The waste code in accordance with the European waste catalog (EWC) must be specified in
cooperation with disposal agency/manufacturer/authorities.
Contaminated packaging:
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible; then it can be passed on for recycling
after being thoroughly cleaned.
