First-aid measures

General advice
:
May cause irritation of the eyes, skin and mucous membranes.
Always observe self-protection methods
Move out of dangerous area.
Remove contaminated shoes and clothing.
Show this material safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.
If inhaled
:
Not expected to present a significant inhalation hazard under anticipated conditions of normal use.
Avoid inhalation of hot vapors or extremely high concentrations of aerosols.
Remove to fresh air.
In the case of inhalation of aerosol/mist consult a physician if necessary.
In case of skin contact
:
Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water.
In case of eye contact
:
Flush eyes with water thoroughly and continuously for 15 minutes.
Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
If eye irritation persists, consult a specialist.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: SMALL FIRE: Use dry chemicals, CO2, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. LARGE FIRE: Use water spray, water fog or alcohol-resistant foam.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Do not use solid water stream.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during fire fighting:
Heat from fire can generate flammable vapor.
When mixed with air and exposed to ignition source, vapors can burn in open or explode if confined.
Vapors may be heavier than air.
May travel long distances along the ground before igniting and flashing back to vapor source.
Fine sprays/mists may be combustible at temperatures below normal flash point.
Fight fire from a safe distance/protected location.
Heat may build enough pressure to rupture closed containers/spreading fire/increasing risk of burns/injuries.
Use water spray/fog for cooling.
Avoid frothing/steam explosion.
Burning liquid may float on water.
Although water soluble, may not be practical to extinguish fire by water dilution.
Notify authorities immediately if liquid enters sewer/public waters.
Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Structural firefighter’s protective clothing will only provide limited protection.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Personal precautions:
- Use personal protective equipment.
- Clean-up to be performed only by trained and properly equipped personnel.
Environmental precautions
Environmental precautions:
- Try to prevent the material from entering drains or water courses.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for containment / Methods for cleaning up:
- Extinguish all ignition sources.
- Stop release; prevent flow to sewers/public waters.
- Notify fire and environmental authorities.
- Impound/recover large land spill; soak up small spill with inert solids.
- Soak up small spills with inert solids.
- Use suitable disposal containers.
- On water, material is soluble and may float or sink.
- Contain/collect rapidly to minimize dispersion.
- Disperse residue to reduce aquatic harm.
- Report per regulatory requirements.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling:
- Handle empty containers with care - residue can burn if heated.
- Empty containers should be thoroughly rinsed with copious amounts of clean water.
- The rinse water can be used for makeup water for any necessary dilution of the concentrated product before use, or it can be properly discarded.
Advice on protection against fire and explosion:
- Normal measures for preventive fire protection.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers:
- Keep container tightly closed when not in use.
- Protect from moisture.
- Store away from heat.
- Material can attack some forms of plastics.
- Do not store together with oxidizing and self-igniting products.
Advice on common storage:
- Carbon/Mild steel with suitable internal coating, or stainless steel
Other data:
- No decomposition if stored and applied as directed.
Specific end use(s)
See Section 1.2.,Development of Exposure Scenarios for such use are not required by the REACH Regulation other than what is provided in other sections of this SDS.
No use-specific Risk Management Measures are proposed.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
No special respiratory protection equipment is recommended under anticipated conditions of normal use.
In an emergency, use supplied air or a self contained breathing apparatus containing air, operated in positive pressure mode which has been recommended or approved by an appropriate agency.
Hand protection:
Not normally considered a skin hazard.
Use chemical resistant gloves appropriate to conditions of use.
Wear chemical resistant gloves such as:
Nitrile rubber
Latex
Source: GESTIS substance database (hazardous substance information system of commercial professional associations)
Eye and face protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields
Use splash goggles when eye contact due to splashing or spraying liquid is possible.
Skin and body protection:
No special clothing/skin protection equipment is recommended under normal conditions of anticipated use.
Where use can result in skin contact, practice good personal hygiene.
Hygiene measures:
Selection of appropriate personal protective equipment should be based on an evaluation of the performance characteristics of the protective equipment relative to the task(s) to be performed, conditions present, duration of use, and the hazards and/or potential hazards that may be encountered during use.
Emergency eye wash fountains and safety showers should be available in the immediate vicinity of any potential exposure.
Use good personal hygiene practices.
Wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking, or using toilet facilities.
