First-aid measures

General advice: Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Oxygen or artificial respiration if needed. In case of persistent problems : Consult a physician.

Skin contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water. If skin irritation persists, call a physician.

Eye contact: Wash immediately, abundantly and thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult an ophthalmologist.

Ingestion: In case of problems : Consult a doctor.

Protection of first-aiders: In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.

Fire-fighting measures

Suitable extinguishing media: Foam, Dry powder, Carbon dioxide (CO2)

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture:
Flammable liquid (when hot).
Thermal decomposition giving flammable and toxic products : Hydrogen sulphide, Sulphur oxides, Carbon oxides

Precautions for fire-fighters: Cool containers / tanks with water spray.

Special protective actions for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective suit.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures:
Evacuate non-essential staff and those not equipped with individual protection apparatus. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Use personal protective equipment. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment

Environmental precautions:
Do not release into the environment. Do not let product enter drains. Dam up with sand or inert earth (do not use combustible materials).

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
- Recovery: Pump into a labelled inert emergency tank. Absorb the remainder with an inert absorbent material.
- Elimination: Destroy the product by incineration (in accordance with local and national regulations).

Handling and storage

Technical measures/Precautions:

Safe handling advice:
Keep well away from naked flames. Prohibit all sources of sparks and ignition - Do not smoke. Only use safety equipment.

Hygiene measures:
Prohibit contact with skin and eyes and inhalation of vapours. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. When using do not eat, drink or smoke. Wash hands after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and protective equipment before entering eating areas.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities:
Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Store away from heat and ignition sources. Provide impermeable floor. Provide a catch-tank in a bunded area. Provide electrical earthing of equipment and electrical equipment usable in explosive atmospheres.
