First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move person to fresh air; if effects occur, consult a physician.

Skin contact: Remove immediately all contaminated clothing. Immediate washing after skin exposure is important. Wash skin with warm water and soap. Seek medical advice if necessary. In case of symptoms of sensitization avoid further exposure.

Eye Contact: Flush eyes thoroughly with water for several minutes with the eyelids held open. Remove contact lenses after initial 1-2 minutes and continue flushing for several additional minutes. If effects occur, consult a physician, preferably an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion: Seek medical attention immediately.

Advice to Physicians: No specific antidote. Treatment of exposure should be directed at the control of symptoms and the clinical condition of the patient.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: Water fog or fine spray in case of larger fires. Carbon dioxide. Alcohol resistant foam. Dry chemical fire extinguishers.

Hazardous Combustion Products: Carbon oxides. Incomplete combustion may lead to the build-up of toxic pyrolysis products.

Protection of Firefighters: Wear positive-pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus.

Specific Fire or Explosion Hazards: Will support combustion.

Specific Methods of Firefighting: Fire debris must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations. Do not discharge extinguishing waters into streams, rivers and lakes.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions: Wear adequate personal protective equipment. Spills may cause very slippery surfaces.

Environmental Precautions: Prevent contamination of ground and surface water, then transfer into closed containers. Recover if possible, or dispose of according to applicable regulations.

Methods of Cleaning Up: Spills should be contained by, and covered with large quantities of sand, earth or any other readily available absorbent material for chemicals which is then brushed in vigorously to assist absorption. The mixture can then be collected into drums and removed for disposal. Wash area from residues with soap and water and rinse down. Contaminated water should be retained, not being allowed to flow into ground or surface water.

Handling and storage

Handling:
When handling observe the usual precautionary measures for chemicals.
Since polyols are handled together with diisocyanates, proper distinction between these two kinds of products is essential in order to avoid undesired mixing resulting in uncontrolled polymerisation.

Storage:
Keep container tightly closed and dry; product is hygroscopic (check nitrogen blanket).
Keep separated from foodstuff.
The recommended storage temperature is 10-30 deg.C.
