First-aid measures

Description of first aid measures

Pay attention to self-protection.

Remove victims from hazardous area. Immediately remove soiled or soaked clothing and remove it to a safe distance.

Keep victim warm, in a stabilized position and covered.

Do not leave victims unattended.

If the casualty is unconscious: Place the victim in the recovery position.


Potential for exposure by inhalation if aerosols or mists are generated.

Move victims into fresh air.

With labored breathing: Provide with oxygen. Consult a doctor.

If the casualty is not breathing: Perform mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, notify emergency physician immediately.

Eye contact

With eye held open, thoroughly rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 10 minutes.

Consult an ophthalmologist immediately if the symptoms persist.


Rinse mouth.

Immediately give large quantities of water to drink.

Obtain medical attention.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed


Harmful in contact with skin and if swallowed.Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed.

After accidental absorption in the body, the pathology and clinical findings are dependent on the kinetics of the noxious substance (quantity of absorbed substance, the absorption time, and the effectiveness of early elimination measures (first aid)/ excretion - metabolism).

Continue with first aid measures.

Depending on the pathology and clinical findings, patient monitoring and symptomatic treatment are necessary.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media:       Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Unsuitable extinguishing media: high volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.

Hazardous fumes in fires, specific to the product:

hydrogen chloride

Under certain fire conditions, traces of other toxic products may occur.

Advice for firefighters

Water for fire fighting must not be introduced in the sewer system, subsoil, or surface waters.

Assure that there are sufficient fire water retaining facilities Contaminated fire fighting water must be disposed of in conformity with the regulations of the local authorities.

Fire residues should be disposed of in accordance with the regulations.

In case of fire: full protective suit and wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Wear suitable protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Do not allow to enter drains (danger of explosion).

Wear personal protective equipment.

Environmental precautions

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

If possible, use material transfer/filling, metering and blending plants that are closed.

If contact with gases or vapours cannot be excluded: Extraction at the emission source required.

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection.

In case vapors or aerosols appear.

Use respiratory equipment with suitable filter or wear a self contained respiratory apparatus.

Suitable filter: A, code colour brown

Note time limit for wearing respiratory protective equipment.
