Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

Advice on safe handling
Provide adequate ventilation.
Take measures to prevent the build up of electrostatic charge.
Handle and open container with care.

Hygiene measures
Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Use protective skin cream before handling the product.
Take off immediately all contaminated clothing and wash it before reuse.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion
not highly flammable
Traces of flammable substances can collect in the vapour space of closed systems, therefore keep sources of ignition away.
Take precautionary measures against build-up of electrostatic charges, e.g earthing during loading and off-loading operations.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Further information on storage conditions
Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Keep only in the original container at temperature not exceeding 40 °C
hygroscopic
Keep away from direct sunlight.

Specific end use(s)

Exposure controls / personal protection

General protective measures
Avoid contact with skin.
Do not inhale vapours
Avoid contact with eyes.

Respiratory protection : Use respiratory protection in case of insufficient exhaust ventilation or prolonged exposure
Full mask to standard DIN EN 136
Filter A (organic gases and vapours) to standard DIN EN 141
The use of filter apparatus presupposes that the environment atmosphere contains at least 17% oxygen by volume, and does not exceed the maximum gas concentration, usually 0.5% by volume. Relevant guidelines to be considered include EN 136/141/143/371/372 as well as other national regulations.

Hand protection: Long-term exposure
Impervious butyl rubber gloves
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured. For short-term exposure (splash protection):
Nitrile rubber gloves.
Minimum thickness (glove): not determined
With solid dry substances permeation is not to be expected, therefore the breakthrough-time for this protective glove has not been measured.
These types of protective gloves are offered by various manufacturers. Please note the manufacturers´ detailed statements, especially about the minimum thickness and the minimum breakthrough time. Consider also the particular working conditions under which the gloves are being used.

Eye protection : Depending on the risk, wear sufficient eye protection (safety glasses with side protection or goggles, and if necessary, face shield.)

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity

See section "Possibility of hazardous reactions"

Chemical stability
