First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove from contaminated area as soon as possible. Transport
him/her lying down, with the head higher than the body, to
a well-ventilated location. Consult with a physician in all
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush eyes immediately with running water for at least 15
minutes, while keeping the eyelids wide open. In case of
difficulty of opening the lids, administer an analgesic eye
wash (oxybuprocaine). Consult with an opthalmologist
immediately in all cases.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated shoes and clothing. Wash affected areas
with running water. Keep warm (blanket), provide clean
clothing. Consult with a physician in all cases.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide or dry chemical may
be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion will contain oxides of carbon, plus,
to a lesser extent, phosphorus and sulphur. Oxygen may be
released, further supporting combustion.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full personal protective equipment and a self-contained
breathing apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Isolate the area. Approach from upwind. Keep the substance
away from incompatible materials. Try to stop the leak. In
case of contact with combustible materials, avoid product
drying out by dilution with water. Inform local
authorities,if necessary.

If possible, dam large quantities of liquid with sand or
earth. Dilute with large quantities of water. Avoid release
to drain and water courses.

Dispose of in accordance with local regulations (refer to
safety data sheet).

Handling and storage

Handling: It is essential that prior to handling the substance,
workers familiarise themselves with protective clothing
requirements, location and working of safety equipment, and
first aid / emergency procedures.

Eye and hand protection are always recommended. Chemical
resistant butyl rubber gloves (to European Standard EN374 or
equivalent) should be worn as well as chemical goggles or
face shield (to Standard EN166 or equivalent). Impervious
chemical resistant clothing and boots are recommended.

When occupational inhalation exposure standards cannot be
met by ventilation or engineering design, then respiratory
protection, conforming to national / international
standards, will be required. A face mask with type B
cartridges (to European standard EN405 or equivalent) is
normally adequate but for more serious cases such as large
emissions, where the mask and cartridge do not provide
adequate protection, then self contained breathing
apparatus(to European standard EN136 or equivalent) is

Storage: The substance should be stored in a well-ventilated area,
away from heat and out of direct sunlight. Keep away from
incompatible substances. The storage area should be
placarded with appropriate identification and hazard warning
signs. A safety shower and eyebath should be provided in
case of accidental contact with the substance. A water hose
should be available for flushing away spillages and leaks to
a safe place.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 25 litre or 220 litre HDPE drums with vented lids.

1000 litre intermediate bulk container (IBC).

18 tonne stainless steel ISO containers.
