First-aid measures

On contact with eyes: Flush with water.

On skin contact: Flush with water.

If inhaled: Remove to fresh air.

On ingestion: Obtain medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

On large fires use dry chemical, foam or water spray (fog). On small fires use carbon

dioxide (CO2), dry chemical or water spray. Water can be used to cool fire exposed

containers.

Unsuitable extinguishing media:

None known.

Hazards during fire fighting:

Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Special protective equipment/procedures:

A self-contained respirator and protective clothing should be worn. Determine the need

to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency plan. Use water spray to keep fire exposed containers cool.

Hazardous Combustion Products:

Thermal breakdown of this product during fire or very high heat conditions may evolve

the following decomposition products: Silica. Carbon oxides and traces of incompletely

burned carbon compounds.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions:

Wear proper protective equipment.

Environmental precautions:

Prevent from spreading or entering into drains, ditches or rivers by using sand, earth or

other appropriate barriers.

Methods for cleaning up:

Determine the need to evacuate or isolate the area according to your local emergency

plan. Very large spills should be contained by bunding, etc... procedures. Mop, wipe or

soak up with absorbent material and place in a container with a lid. The spilled product

produces an extremely slippery surface.

Handling and storage

Advice on safe handling:

General ventilation is required. Local ventilation is recommended. Do not breathe

vapour. Do not ingest. Avoid eye contact.

Advice on storage:

Do not store with oxidizing agents.

Vapours may form explosive mixtures with air.

Specific uses:

Refer to technical data sheet available on request.

Unsuitable packaging materials:

None known.

Personal protection equipment

Respiratory protection :

Suitable respiratory protection should be worn if the product is used in large quantities,

confined spaces or in other circumstances where the OEL may be approached or exceeded.

Depending on the working conditions, wear a respiratory mask with filter(s) AX or use a

self-contained respirator.

The choice of a filter type depends on the amount and type of chemical being handled in

the workplace. Regarding filter characteristics, contact your respiratory protection

supplier.

Hand protection: Gloves are not normally required.

Eye protection: Safety glasses should be worn.

Skin protection : Protective equipment is not normally necessary.

Hygiene measures : Exercise good industrial hygiene practice. Wash after handling, especially before eating,

drinking or smoking.

Environmental exposure controls: Refer to sections "Accidental Release Measures" and "Ecological Information".
