First-aid measures

General advice

Take care of your own personal safety.

Remove victims from hazardous area.

Take off all contaminated clothing immediately.

Keep patient warm and at rest.

Do not leave victims unattended.


Move victims into fresh air.

Place person on side in stable position if unconscious.

In case of difficulties in breathing, supply oxygen.

Employ artificial respiration if breathing ceases.

Consult a physician immediately.

Skin contact

In the event of frostbite, rinse copiously with water.

Do not remove clothing that adheres due to freezing.

Cover with sterile dressing and seek medical advice.

Eye contact

Flush affected eye immediately with water at ambient temperature.

Do not force eyelids open.

Consult an ophthalmologist.


Ingestion by swallowing is not considered a possible mode of exposure.

Notes to physician

Oxygen-displacing gas.

No specific antidote known.

cardio-vascular monitoring.

Symptomatic treatment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media

Water spray, foam, CO2, dry powder.

Extinguishing media which must not be used for safety reasons

high volume water jet

Specific hazards during fire fighting

Heavier than air vapour.

Formation of flammable or explosive vapour/air mixtures possible.

Keep all ignition sources out of area

In case of fire cool endangered containers with water.

Closed container may rupture if strongly heated.

Special protective equipment for fire-fighters

In the case of respirable dust and/or fumes, use self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions

Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.

Heavier than air vapour.

Ensure adequate ventilation.

Ensure good room ventilation at floor level too.

Environmental precautions

Do not allow entrance in sewage water, drainage systems, stretches of water, soil.

Avoid penetration into drainage system or in rooms situated at a lower level because of danger of explosion.

Issue an immediate alarm report to the company environmental protection department if the product unintentionally leaves the production area.

Methods for cleaning up

taking special safety precautions

Confine and allow to evaporate.

Handling and storage


Safe handling advice

Wear personal protective equipment; see section 8.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Provide good ventilation or extraction.

Ensure good room ventilation at floor level too.

Observe special instructions applicable to compressed gases.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion

Take precautionary measures against static charges, keep away from sources of ignition.

Explosion protection equipment required.

Temperature class

T 2


Requirements for storage areas and containers

Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place.

Keep away from direct sunlight.

Suitable materials       mild steel

Advice on common storage

Observe prohibition against storing together!

Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures

Use closed-system units.

If contact with gases or vapours cannot be excluded: Provide good ventilation or extraction.

Occupational exposure controls

Further information

ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industry Hygienists)

Personal protective equipment

Respiratory protection

In case of dusts/vapours/aerosols being formed or if the limit values like TLV are exceeded:

If concentrations in the breathed air are low:

Respirator with brown AX-type filter

Put on Respiratory protective equipment independent of surrounding air with high gas/vapour concentrations.

Hand protection

Glove material       suitable protective gloves, e.g. nitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) gloves, leather gloves, heat insulating

Selection of protective gloves to meet the requirements of specific workplaces.

Suitability for specific workplaces should be clarified with protective glove manufacturers.

The information is based on our own tests, references from the literature and information from glove manufacturers, or derived by analogy with similar materials.

Remember that the useful time per day of a chemical protection glove may be much shorter than the permeation time determined according to EN 374 due to the many different influential factors involved (e.g. temperature).

Eye protection

close-fitting protective goggles (e.g. closed goggles) or face protection

Skin and body protection

Select materials and equipment for physical protection depending on the concentration and volume of hazardous substances and the workplace involved.

Hygiene measures

Do not inhale vapours / aerosols.

Avoid contact with skin and eyes.

Remove contaminated or saturated clothing.

Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area.

Observe the rules usually applicable when handling chemicals.

Protective measures

Wear suitable protective clothing.

full protective suit, if necessary

Environmental exposure controls

see section 6.

Stability and reactivity

Conditions to avoid

Keep away from heat and sources of ignition.

Materials to avoid

strong oxidizing agents, chlorine, oxygen

Hazardous decomposition products

In case of fire or thermal decomposition production of, for example, Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide (CO2)

Hazardous reactions

Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

Disposal considerations

With respect to local regulations, e.g. incineration via flare system.

No waste key number as per the European Waste Types List can be assigned to this product, since such classification is based on the (as yet undetermined) use to which the product is put by the consumer.

The waste key number must be determined as per the European Waste Types List (decision on EU Waste Types List 2000/532/EC) in cooperation with the disposal firm / producing firm / official authority.
