First-aid measures

Eye contact

Get medical attention immediately. Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water,

occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Check for and remove any contact

lenses. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes.

Inhalation

Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing.

Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie, belt or waistband. Consult a physician

immediately if symptoms such as shortness of breath or asthma are observed.

Skin contact

Wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.

Wash contaminated clothing thoroughly with water before removing it, or wear

gloves. Continue to rinse for at least 10 minutes. Get medical attention if symptoms

appear. In the event of any complaints or symptoms, avoid further exposure. Wash

clothing before reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse.

Ingestion

Wash out mouth with water. Remove victim to fresh air and keep at rest in a position

comfortable for breathing. If material has been swallowed and the exposed person

is conscious, give small quantities of water to drink. Do not induce vomiting unless

directed to do so by medical personnel. Loosen tight clothing such as a collar, tie,

belt or waistband. Get medical attention if symptoms appear.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media:

Use an extinguishing agent suitable for the surrounding fire.

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

- Hazards from the substance or mixture:

This material is toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects. Fire water contaminated

with this material must be contained and prevented from being discharged to any

waterway, sewer or drain.

-Hazardous thermal decomposition products:

Decomposition products may include the following materials:

carbon dioxide

carbon monoxide

nitrogen oxides

sulfur oxides

phosphorus oxides

halogenated compounds

Advice for firefighters

- Special precautions for fire-fighters:

Promptly isolate the scene by removing all persons from the vicinity of the incident if

there is a fire. No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable

training.

- Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:

Fire-fighters should wear appropriate protective equipment and self-contained

breathing apparatus (SCBA) with a full face-piece operated in positive pressure

mode. Clothing for fire-fighters (including helmets, protective boots and gloves)

conforming to European standard EN 469 will provide a basic level of protection for

chemical incidents.

Accidental release measures

For non-emergency personnel:

No action shall be taken involving any personal risk or without suitable training.

Evacuate surrounding areas. Keep unnecessary and unprotected personnel from

entering. Do not touch or walk through spilt material. Provide adequate ventilation.

Wear appropriate respirator when ventilation is inadequate. Put on appropriate

personal protective equipment.

For emergency responders:

If specialised clothing is required to deal with the spillage, take note of any

information in Section 8 on suitable and unsuitable materials. See also the

information in "For non-emergency personnel".

Environmental precautions:

Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains

and sewers. Inform the relevant authorities if the product has caused environmental

pollution (sewers, waterways, soil or air). Water polluting material. May be harmful

to the environment if released in large quantities. Collect spillage.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

- Small spill:

Move containers from spill area. Vacuum or sweep up material and place in a

designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a licensed waste disposal

contractor.

- Large spill:

Move containers from spill area. Approach the release from upwind. Prevent entry

into sewers, water courses, basements or confined areas. Vacuum or sweep up

material and place in a designated, labelled waste container. Dispose of via a

licensed waste disposal contractor. Note: see section 1 for emergency contact

information and section 13 for waste disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling Protective measures:

Put on appropriate personal protective equipment. Persons with a

history of skin sensitization problems should not be employed in any process in

which this product is used. Do not get in eyes or on skin or clothing. Do not ingest.

Avoid release to the environment. If during normal use the material presents a

respiratory hazard, use only with adequate ventilation or wear appropriate respirator.

Keep in the original container or an approved alternative made from a compatible

material, kept tightly closed when not in use. Empty containers retain product

residue and can be hazardous. Do not reuse container.

Advice on general occupational hygiene:

Eating, drinking and smoking should be prohibited in areas where this material is

handled, stored and processed. Workers should wash hands and face before

eating, drinking and smoking. Remove contaminated clothing and protective

equipment before entering eating areas. See also Section 8 for additional

information on hygiene measures.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:

Store in accordance with local regulations. Store in original container protected from

direct sunlight in a dry, cool and well-ventilated area, away from incompatible

materials and food and drink. Store locked up. Keep container

tightly closed and sealed until ready for use. Containers that have been opened

must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage. Do not store in

unlabelled containers. Use appropriate containment to avoid environmental

contamination.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Individual protection measures

-Hygiene measures:

Wash hands, forearms and face thoroughly after handling chemical products, before

eating, smoking and using the lavatory and at the end of the working period. Avoid

ingestion, inhalation, skin and eye contact. Handle in accordance with good

industrial hygiene practice and any legal requirements. Contaminated work clothing

should not be allowed out of the workplace. Wash contaminated clothing before

reusing. Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the

workstation location.

- Eye/face protection:

Safety eyewear complying with an approved standard should be used when a risk

assessment indicates this is necessary to avoid exposure to liquid splashes, mists,

gases or dusts. Recommended: tightly fitting safety goggles

- Skin protection - Hand protection:

Chemical-resistant, impervious gloves complying with an approved standard should

be worn at all times when handling chemical products if a risk assessment indicates

this is necessary. <1 hours (breakthrough time): butyl or neoprene.

Use gloves approved to relevant standards e.g. EN 374 (Europe), F739 (US).

Suitability and durability of a glove is dependent on usage, e.g. frequency and

duration of contact, chemical resistance of glove material and dexterity. Always seek

advice from glove suppliers.
