First-aid measures

General advice
Remove contaminated, soaked clothing immediately and dispose of safely.
Inhalation
Keep at rest. Aerate with fresh air. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical advice.
Eyes
Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Remove contact lenses. Obtain
medical attention.
Skin
Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. When symptoms persist or in all cases of doubt seek medical
advice.
Ingestion
Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Call a physician immediately.
Main symptoms
shortness of breath.
Special hazard
Lung oedema, Lung irritation.
Notes to physician
Treat symptomatically. In case of lung irritation, first treatment with cortisone spray.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media
alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide (CO2)
Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.
Special exposure hazards arising from the substance or preparation itself, its combustion products, or
released gases
Under conditions giving incomplete combustion, hazardous gases produced may consist of:
carbon monoxide (CO)
carbon dioxide (CO2)
Combustion gases of organic materials must in principle be graded as inhalation poisons
Vapours are heavier than air and may spread along floors
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters
Fire fighter protection should include a self-contained breathing apparatus (NIOSH-approved or EN 133) and full firefighting
turn out gear.
Precautions for fire-fighting
Cool containers / tanks with water spray. Water run-off and vapor cloud may be corrosive. Dike and collect water used
to fight fire. Keep people away from and upwind of fire.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid breathing vapors or mists. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.
Ensure adequate ventilation, especially in confined areas. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. For personal
protection see section 8.
Environmental precautions
Prevent further leakage or spillage. Do not discharge product into the aquatic environment without pretreatment
(biological treatment plant).
Methods for containment
Stop the flow of material, if possible without risk. Dike spilled material, where this is possible.
Methods for cleaning up
Soak up with inert absorbent material. DO NOT use combustible materials such as sawdust. Keep in suitable, closed
containers for disposal. If liquid has been spilt in large quantities clean up promptly by scoop or vacuum.

Handling and storage

Handling
Advice on safe handling
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Wash hands before breaks and immediately after handling the product.
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Refill and handle product only in closed system.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion
Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take necessary action to avoid static electricity discharge (which
might cause ignition of organic vapours). In case of fire, emergency cooling with water spray should be available.
Ground and bond containers when transferring material.
Storage
Technical measures/Storage conditions
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Handle and open container with care. Handle under
nitrogen, protect from moisture.
Advice on common storage
Incompatible products:
acids and bases
amines
oxidizing agents
Temperature class
T3

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure limits European Union
No exposure limits established
Exposure limits Germany
No exposure limits established.
Occupational exposure controls
Engineering measures
General or dilution ventilation is frequently insufficient as the sole means of controlling employee exposure. Local
ventilation is usually preferred. Explosion-proof equipment (for example fans, switches, and grounded ducts) should
be used in mechanical ventilation systems.
Personal protective equipment
General industrial hygiene practice
Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapours or spray mist. Ensure that eyewash stations and
safety showers are close to the workstation location.
Hygiene measures
When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Take off all contaminated clothing immediately. Wash hands before breaks
and immediately after handling the product.
Respiratory protection
Respirator with A filter. Full mask with above mentioned filter according to producers using requirements or selfcontained
breathing apparatus. Equipment should conform to EN 136 or EN 140 and EN 143.
Hand protection
Wear protective gloves. Recommendations are listed below. Other protective material may be used, depending on the
situation, if adequate degradation and permeation data is available. If other chemicals are used in conjunction with
this chemical, material selection should be based on protection for all chemicals present.
Suitable material nitrile rubber
Evaluation according to EN 374: level 6
Glove thickness approx 0,55 mm
Break through time > 480 min
Suitable material polyvinylchloride
Evaluation Information derived from practical experience
Glove thickness approx 0,8 mm
Eye protection
Tightly fitting safety goggles. In addition to goggles, wear a face shield if there is a reasonable chance for splash to
the face. Equipment should conform to EN 166.
Skin and body protection
Impervious clothing. Wear face-shield and protective suit for abnormal processing problems.
Environmental exposure controls
If possible use in closed systems. If leakage can not be prevented, the substance needs to be suck off at the
emersion point, if possible without danger. Observe the exposure limits, clean exhaust air if needed. If recycling is not
practicable, dispose of in compliance with local regulations. Inform the responsible authorities in case of leakage into
the atmosphere, or of entry into waterways, soil or drains.

Stability and reactivity

Stability
Stable under recommended storage conditions.
Hazardous reactions
May form explosive peroxides. When finely distributed, self-ignition is possible.
Conditions to avoid
Avoid contact with heat, sparks, open flame, and static discharge. Avoid any source of ignition.
Materials to avoid
bases, amines, acids, oxidizing agents.

Disposal considerations

Product Information
Disposal required in compliance with all waste management related state and local regulations. The choice of the
appropriate method of disposal depends on the product composition by the time of disposal as well as the local
statutes and possibilities for disposal. Hazardous waste according to European Waste Catalogue (EWC).
Uncleaned empty packaging
Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and after appropriate cleansing may be taken for
reuse.
